Dominique Gyselinck and Frederic Dechamps are a Belgian power couple that owns several tobacco shops. They are most famous for the La Casa del Habano in Knokke and Ghent Belgium but also own La Casa del Tabaco shops which sell Non-Cuban cigars too. At the 18th Festival de la Habano, Gyselinck became ‘Hombre del Habano’ and a year later Davidoff awarded her with a golden band award.

Unhappy with the availability and quality of the sensors to monitor the temperature and humidity in humidors, Gyselinck and her team decided to create a brand new product, including a new app. And it’s released now. The sensor is housed in a small plastic housing, which also included a wifi receiver and transmitter. The sensor connects to the app, which you can download for free. For Android phones the app is available at the play store, iPhone users can download the app from the La Casa del Tabaco website. Apple has removed all tobacco related apps from the app store in the recent passt.

Once the sensor is linked to the app and the wifi, it will transmit the humidity and temperature in your humidor every eight hours. If the sensor detects values over or under a critical limit, it will send a warning to your phone. And if you have more than one humidor? Don’t worry, you can add as many sensors to your app as you want, unlimited.

The app also comes with a free option to manage your stock. You can add cigars to your personal database and keep track of your priced collection of brown gold.

Ministry of Cigars will be doing a product review of the LCDT sensor in the near future since Dominique was so kind as to provide us with one. We are currently testing it, keep an eye out for our verdict in a few weeks.
