All our CHAUVET DJ fixtures with “BT” on the name of the product have the Bluetooth technology built in and are therefore compatible with the free BTAir app. Note that the system is dependent on Bluetooth, so other fixtures without “BT“ in their name are not compatible with the BTAir-App. You can find the entire list of compatible fixtures above on this same page.
BTAir compatible fixtures are not dependent on the BTAir-App. They have conventional features like DMX, sound activation and auto programs. However, BTAir is a convenient lighting option and gives you the possibility to control your lighting without the need of additional consoles, you can control everything right from your smartphone or tablet, which you most likely have with you at all times anyway. If you want to control the fixtures without the app, check the individual product pages. Most of the fixtures include DMX, Stand-Alone or Sound-to-light options as well.
The process is quite simple and fast. It shouldn’t take more than 10 seconds for the app to recognize all the nearby fixtures to pair. Make sure to stand near the fixtures when pairing. It’s important to remember that the Bluetooth connection happens within the BTAir app, NOT your device’s Bluetooth settings.
You can control fades, chases, strobes, color, and more. You are also able to save scenes into a dashboard which allows you to change pre-programmed scenes on the fly, e.g. while you are performing your show. The system is ideal to create specific scenes for specific songs or moods you want to transport trough light.
The fixtures will stay on the last configuration they were set up even if you are out of the Bluetooth range, leave the party or even restart the fixtures on the next day.
Of course! Here’s a good video to start with. Check bellow on this page for a full walk-trough. The videos guide you step by step through the pairing, set up, scene creation and performance mode. It’s really easy!
It depends on the fixtures. Some control options only work on certain fixtures. You can control amber when your fixtures have amber-LED’s included, for example. That is the case with all “quad-color” fixtures indicated by the “Q“ in their name. Chasing effects works best when your fixture has more than one control zone, e.g. on our COLORband LED-Bars.
