Why Should My School Buy KilnLink

Save Time and Gain Freedom

KilnTechIt seems everyday our schedules get tighter and tighter. Most teachers are required to monitor their kilns. KilnLink gives teachers the freedom to know what is going on with their kiln without having to go to the kiln room. That means more time with the students and more freedom for the teacher. Often times it is not realistic to keep a teacher at school for the entire length of a kiln firing. KilnLink can keep Ceramics a viable option for schools. Art Coordinators can even be authorized to view all the kilns in their district.

Save Money and Down Time

Kiln Maintenance can be expensive and unpredictable. With KilnLink Skutt technicians can pull up all the data they need to diagnose your kiln and avoid multiple trips from your kiln repair contractor. Your contractor can also be authorized so they can evaluate each kiln for future maintenance and handle problems before they happen.

Specifications and Installation Instructions


Testemonial

My little kiln just happily fired itself and reported all manner of good things to me. I am impressed. Over 20 years ago I went to college, and minored in ceramics. In the intervening decades, I have become an IT guy as the way to pay bills. When I got the project to put in a new kiln, it was a neat combination of a few different hats for me.

Over the years, I have worked with a variety of technologies and been through my share of sales gimmicks, odd projects, and gizmos that do not live up to the hype. Your KilnLink box – I bolted it to the wall, plugged it in, and used the name and password you sent me. That is it.

The application itself is blissfully clean, simple, and provides useful information in a very functional way. It’s rare I see something this elegant and functional – nicely done. I have been running around with my laptop and phone showing co-workers text messages and graphs from the kiln, and I am quite sure they think I’ve gone nuts :-)
