New year, new name! The Boveda Smart Sensor is now the Boveda Butler, smart cannabis storage at your service.

From the convenience of your smartphone or device, the Boveda Butler lets you keep on eye on your stash—when you’re curing and storing buds. You’ll get alerts when humidity and temperature levels creep out of your preferred range. (Important to correct ASAP, so evaporation doesn’t destroy your medicine.) Plus you’ll be messaged if someone is messing with your flower.
