Read Our Review
I’ve Been using the Flarecon air for years and its hElped me out tremeNdouslY! I own THree of them. Very reliable and i use it wIth my 36 freeDom par hexs. If im using my chauvet sr120 hybrid moving heads, i just run an xlr out from one of my freedom pars into the moving heads and full control! I love it. Not sure about the app for your Smartphone…i just connect show xpress to the fLarecon and never think twice about it failing me! I personally dj 140 + events each Year and since i purchased It, it hasn’t failed me onCe!
DOES NOT WORK AS ADVERTISED
I bought this as well as Freedom Flex H4 IP x6. Being able to use the App was a huge part of the sell for me. The Apps latest update does not work or have the functions that are shown in the VERY LIMITED number of instructional videos that have been produced. So a product that is billed as leveraging a smartphone app… an app that is not intuitive and does not have the functionality shown in the promotional videos, and literally no resources to try to figure out a solution. Cool.
Worst app design i have ever Seen.
Won'T WORK WITH IPAD
App says not compatible with my ipad though it meets requirements and i use these lights on a weekly basis! HELP!
Need stronger signal
We have three of these devices and on many events we scan for the best channel for the flarecon to send a signal. the signal needs more powerful antennas for sure. when you have a lot of people at events the antennas on these devices don’t cut it. I’d like to see more powerful antennas so our fixtures don’t get DISCONNECTED. Thank you! Dax
Easy to set up and use. Phone app is good. using with donner xmt/rcv system for older lights. will know more after a couple of weddings coming up.
New update Issue with App
This has been working great for gigs for the last two years. went to a gig last weekend not knowing app was updated and could not get lights to work with app. Very little information on the programming needed on internet and changes to app. One video showed 001 for DMZ channel number and another one just showed 1. Could not get 12 Freedom Par Hex to work and had to do manual control
WAS A decent idea
Been using this and the concept is great. The latest release of the app wont run on any of my devices so now im frozen out. Typical, but bad, thinking.

Flarecon downside. Battery
This product would be much better and more CONVENIENT if it were battery powered to match the lights i use it with.
