With technology becoming integral to our open spaces, Grillex has come up with a ‘smart’ solution to community barbecues that does everything but cook the snags for you.
We are in fast pursuit to embrace digital transformation like never before. Cities of the future will no longer be a series of disconnected, heterogeneous parts. Rather, they are becoming virtual living entities that are capable of fast change and response to existing and pre-empted conditions.
Innovative technology now means open space assets are becoming ‘smart’ assets. Barbeques, lighting, signage and street furniture are just some of the outdoor assets that, coupled with digital capability, are enhancing our regions’ intelligence and agility.
Public barbecues are an important part of the spaces that make up our community and enhance our neighbourhoods, but they can come at a cost. Ongoing service calls for troubleshooting and maintenance can see the cost of running a public barbecue become prohibitive for councils, governments and park owners.
Queensland company Grillex has listened to these concerns and developed a smarter way to barbecue. The company’s extensive involvement in the industry, combined with a commitment to technology and innovation, has resulted in the development of a technological solution that makes it easy and cost effective to manage park assets and keep barbecues working.
The Grillex 360 System provides asset managers with alerts and information, no matter where they are. Grillex barbeques are fitted with a telemetry unit and a cellular antenna that provides data to the cloud, which can be accessed via a website. Clients can then login to see this data.
The Grillex 360 system reports on usage data, including if the asset is on or off, the number of times a barbecue has been started or used, how many hours it’s been running, the temperature of the hotplate, and much more.
The 360 System is also able to identify faults and notify asset managers immediately so they can mobilise maintenance crews.
Another innovative feature of the Grillex 360 system is the ability to remotely configure the unit from the convenience of your workplace. Through your phone or computer, you can remotely enable or disable your barbecue, as well as adjust the cooking temperature and time from wherever you are.
Grillex 360 technology offers free monitoring, a premium monitoring option and no lock in subscription, and is available to customers across Australia.
