KegCop may not be the first kegerator monitoring system on the block, but it aims to be one of the best and easiest to set up. Some of the other guys require a server be set up on your LAN, whereas KegCop just requires a iOS device and a Bluno microcontroller attached your kegerator.
That’s all fine and dandy, but what’s in the future for KegCop? Well, first on the priority list is adding the functionality to monitor how much beer is left in their kegerator. Next is being able to calibrate how much beer / fluid comes out per pour. Lastly, everyone has a mobile device in their hands now, so why not bring the kegerator to you? There are plans to build a web front-end for KegCop so you will be able access your kegerator through any web browser and pour a beer, all while not having to worry about the hassle of setting up a server - your iOS device will be taking care of that! If this seems like a project you are interested in, check out the fantastic reward packages we have available for all levels of donations. We appreciate your help in making KegCop the best kegerator monitoring system designed specifically for iOS!

Risks and challenges
If you plan on ordering a soldered package please be patient because I will be hand soldering the kegboard shield / coaster myself. So depending on how many people pledge there could be a bit of a delay.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
