Kegtron Pro and Taplist.io: Integration Guide
Taplist.io has a built-in integration with the Kegtron Pro keg measurement system. By using this integration, you can:
- Automatically update per-keg "served volume" in Taplist.io from Kegtron Pro data. Keg illustrations on your digital menus will adjust to show approximate fill levels.
- Automatically update keg temperatures in Taplist.io from Kegtron Pro data.
- Optionally, automatically create kegs in Taplist.io when Kegtron Pro reports a new beverage.
We think Taplist.io and Kegtron Pro make a wonderful combo! Read on to set up the integration.
To use the Kegtron Pro integration, please verify the following requirements first.
You will need:
- A paid Taplist.io account in good standing.
- A Kegtron Pro system. Only Kegtron Pro devices are compatible.
- Access to your Kegtron Pro cloud account.
Step 1: Retrieve your Kegtron API key
Step 2: Create a new device in Taplist.io
In the Taplist.io dashboard, visit the Kegtron Pro integration page. Press "Add a Kegtron Device".
Step 3: Enter API key
In the Taplist.io dashboard, paste your API key into the form and press save.
Step 4: Configure settings
Once your API key has been accepted, Taplist.io will show you a settings for the device. Important: The integration will not change any of your Taplist.io data until you configure settings in this step.
Keg management option
The option "Automatically create, end, and replace kegs according to Kegtron data" controls how Taplist.io manages kegs at the taps you have connected:
- Disabled (default): Kegtron data will update whatever keg is on tap in Taplist.io, even if beverage names do not match. When there is no keg connected, kegtron data for that tap is ignored.
- Enabled: Taplist.io will automatically create a keg to match the Kegtron beverage data. When you change kegs on Kegtron, Taplist.io will automatically end the keg on that tap and create a new keg. Any updates to the keg name, description, producer, style, ABV, IBU or SRM on the Kegtron Cloud Dashboard will be updated on Taplist.io
