I had not looked into the repeater -  that sounds interesting, but since I typically check the Tilts (I have 2) on the stainless fermenters in a chest freezer as fermentation chamber, I wonder if it is worthwhile inthat setting (another lid to transmit through).  Any thoughts?

I set the repeater on top of the fridge probably ~3 feet from the floating Tilt which is inside a BrewBucket inside the fridge. It has no trouble grabbing the Tilt signal and sending it upstairs to me. 

...except when the battery dies.

It comes with a suction cup hook that can be positioned more conveniently as well.

I was considering zip tying it to the freezer handle since I never open the freezer. (Freezer over fridge)

I guess I am a lazy Tilt owner. I read it with the app on my phone once or twice a day when I walk by the fermenter. No fancy graphs, but, it’s still awesome.

Thanks for the interesting graph.  I wonder if the same thing happens under the phone app when a battery on the submerged Tilt goes dead.  I assumed it would just not connect...so no further reading, but maybe it acts similarly?

I imagine it just wouldn’t connect anymore.

Has anyone used a tilt together with a floating dip tube in their fermenter?  I'd imagine the dip tube would likely interfere with the tilt?

Thanks.  I'm definitely going to pick one of this up then!
