DIY Keg Monitoring System Under $20 | Live Volume and Setup Alerts | Home Assistant | Load Cells!



Published
This has been a project that has had alot of changes over the last 4-8 weeks, this is the final design! This video will go over from start to finish out to setup and configure a keg monitoring system. I tried to make this pretty much like a Plaato Keg Monitor - but much cheaper! We use Home Assistant for most of the automation.
