Boveda Discontinues Butler

Null

Last month, Boveda made the decision to discontinue the Boveda Butler, the company’s humidity and temperature sensor that pairs with the Boveda app on smartphones.

The company informed its partners that the decision to continue the product was due to “ongoing supply disruptions.” Boveda says that existing sensors and the app will continue to work, but the company is no longer selling it via its own store or offering it to retailers.

Boveda introduced the Butler in 2017, originally called “Boveda Smart Sensor.” At first, the device was only offered in a package priced at $49.99, but the price was eventually lowered to around $20. The device was made in collaboration with a separate company, Blustream, which also sells the product with other companies like D’Addario, a music company.

The Boveda Butler—which paired with iOS and Android smartphones via Bluetooth—would allow users to see both live and historical data regarding temperature and humidity, as well as the ability to receive alerts when either measurement exceeded a specified range. Since its launch in 2017, Boveda had plans to expand the Butler beyond its initial functions, it’s unclear whether it will continue to develop those plans for the future.
