Getting the Most Out of Your HPC Fire Inspired™ Electronic Ignition High-Low Fire Pit

(It's All About the App: Part 2 of a Series)

If you read the first article in this series sub-titled, "Tips for Best Enjoyment," then you'll likely recall that we mentioned the HPC Fire Inspired™ new and improved mobile app that's designed to work with the Electronic Ignition (EI) High-Low line of fire pits. Let's just say HPC Fire Inspired has more than delivered on providing users with ultimate convenience and control at their fingertips.

New and Improved Mobile Bluetooth® App Enables Smartphone Control

At the touch of a phone, users can now turn their HPC Fire Inspire EI High-Low fire pit on and off, adjust flame height, set a shut-off timer, and much more with the "HPC Fire Inspired Fire App v2" available for Apple® and Android™ phones. The free Bluetooth® app allows users to pair their device with the advanced and improved line of Electronic Ignition (EI) High-Low fire pits that feature a built-in antenna, enabling remote control from as far away as 20 feet. Let's face it, smartphones help us manage so many of our life's activities, so why not put it to use with the backyard fire pit?

Exciting Convenience for Homeowners

Once a connection is established between the smartphone and the EI High-Low fire pit, users can perform the following functions using the Fire app:

  • Turn the fire pit on and off
  • Control the flame level to be either high or low
  • Set the flame to a shut-off timer
  • Monitor the internal temperature of the ignition box
  • Aid in troubleshooting problems that may be encountered

In addition to this groundbreaking convenience, the EI High-Low line's updated safety features surpass those of any CSA-certified fire pit on the market and provide more dependable ignition service life. Integrated flame-sensing technology shuts down the fire pit when the flame is lost and automatically relights it. Should the user forget to turn off the flame, an auto-shutoff feature will do it for them.

Commercial User Enhancements

Together with the Fire app, the EI High-Low fire pit series offers enhanced functionality for commercial applications as well. With a simple pass-code, users can assign control to anyone with a compatible device to allow multi-operator access. For locations with multiple fire pits, each fire pit can be named differently within the app and individually controlled for optimum flexibility. In addition, the EI High-Low fire pits have self-diagnostic capabilities that monitor shut-downs and other events, providing user reports with corrective actions.

The App That's Literally Igniting Fire Pits, Not to Mention Fire Pit Sales

While this series of HPC fire pits does comes with its own remote-control unit, having smartphone control enhances the whole fire pit experience for users and provides a unique selling proposition for dealers. In test settings, the app received high marks for ease of use and functionality. This latest offering by HPC Fire Inspired is truly an industry-first convenience benefit that residential and commercial users will enjoy.

Get Started

HPC Fire Inspired EI High-Low fire pit owners can download the HPC Fire App v2 from the Apple Store or Google Play. Setting up the app is simple. Just follow the prompts and be sure to enable the Bluetooth when pairing your phone to the EI fire pit. Then, turn on your fire pit, adjust the flame height, and enjoy!
