Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cylinders are widely used in home kitchens, which are very dangerous and fatal if they explode. Monitoring for gas cylinder leakage is critical as well as knowing when to order a refill. LPG is a heavier-than-air gas, and the smart LPG stand placed under the cylinder can easily detect gas leaks. In addition, weight detection is done using a load cell, which can detect the cylinder weight indicating when the next refill is needed. A user can even access the cylinder usage data or enable automatic reordering by accessing the optional Bluetooth® Low Energy (LE) functionality.
