Ratings and Reviews
Connects great to Firepit each time even while simultaneously Bluetooth connected to a speaker. Only issue is it’s very difficult to see app while wearing sunglasses given the very dark background.
Simple, clean app - works flawlessly with FirePit
Installed this app to use with my new BioLite FirePit. It works flawlessly, and it is simple and clean. Love it!
(This review is specific to the app and not the light itself.)
The latest update removed a few features, which I wasn't too happy about, such as the the light flashing variations, proximity, and choosing which side to light (front/back). Other than that the app works.
Pairing is slow, which I can see why they removed the proximity sensing. Slow re-pairing makes adjusting the light slow while it re-establishes the link; I would imagine rendering the proximity sensing useless or incredibly slow. I sometimes run into issues when trying to alter the color schemes and it stalls or switches the light to white or vice versa. I have also run into experiences when these unexpected changes happen the brightness changes leaving you with an unexpected blinding light when you're in a small room or close to the unit. I suspect this is all a software issue as the hardware itself seems do what it's told as long as the right setting are pushed to it.
I would currently rate this as "usable", but there are some obvious bugs they still need to work out. As a control for the light, it simply works, but the many features to really make this product and application shine are not quite there yet.
This of course is the first run of the product and application, so this is expected. I also expect this to improve as this app gets vetted by users and shared with their development team.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
