What to Know About Smart Heating Oil Gauges, Thomaston, Connecticut

Smart technology is becoming ever-present, making day to day activities easier and more convenient. And it’s making it’s way into every industry, from smart homes to heating oil. Here’s what you should know about getting a Smart Oil Gauge® for your property.

What Does the Smart Oil Gauge Do?

The Smart Oil Gauge is designed to help you track the heating oil in your tank. The device integrates with your fuel tank and home’s WiFi network to give you up-to-date readings of how much fuel is in the tank. This way, you know when to schedule oil deliveries.

The app also tracks fuel consumption over time so you can understand your family’s heating habits and identify patterns, such as which months require the most oil. This will help you to optimize your fuel usage. 

How Does It Work?

The Smart Oil Gauge uses an ultrasonic sensor to measure oil levels; the numbers are then transmitted to the app and website using your home’s WiFi network. The gauge itself uses two-inch threaded metal piping as part of its design, allowing it to be inserted into spare holes at the top of the tank. It can replace your current oil gauge.

The device is powered by lithium-ion batteries—and the app will let you know when they need to be replaced. Finally, the installation process is quick and easy for professionals.
