Not Bad, needs big improvements
The app is ok. Pros: you don’t have to go through settings to connect the fixture(s). You can save scenes and recall them. Most of the cons are: I wish the color wheel reacted live to the color you are scrolling through. You cannot use the ‘Sound Activated’ at all, the app closes out immediately. Using a fixture that has zones, the zone chases do not work either, nor can you choose certain sections and mix colors on them separately. Wish there was a ‘fade’ option to go from color to color in the ‘fixed’ tab, and scene to scene when doing playback selections, instead of a harsh jump to the color/playback chosen.
Good start, but frustrating limitations.
Love the fact that I have a solid BT 12-light colorbar. Love that I can set up programs on the iPhone and make things happen live. Will probably love getting the cool footswitch to change programs during a tune.
WOULD love to have the three-zone functionality as promised by the specs and app descriptions, but the app's custom zone funtionality just flat-out doesn't work. (See edit below.) It would be so, so much cooler to have three different colors washing our little band and changing as we play. But nope. One color and one color only.
EDIT: Adding a star to note that it does work, but only if you have Bluetooth 4.2. This is noted on the website, but not in the app's specs in the App Store. My iPhone 6 obviously does not, but my iPad does.
Now... PLEASE give me the ability to display three different colors at the same time and fade between different color combinations. This is a three-zone light, but the app only provides a single-color zone chase. Great light, but disappointed at the unnecessary limitations of the app that in turn limit the light. Hoping for true three-zone functionality in a near-future update!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the detailed feedback and describing your need for BTAir! Good news: BTAir has Zone Chase which will trigger the three zones on COLORband T3BT. Simply hit Zone Chase on the app and pick colors from the Color Picker for the three zones to activate. If you are experiencing any continued issues or bugs, please follow these steps: 1) Update BTAir to the latest version 2) Ensure your device runs Bluetooth v 4.2 or higher. 3) Contact ChauvetCS@chauvetlighting.com
Needs a lot of work
App does some very basic things. The main attraction of Bluetooth connectivity is to remotely control some lights. It turns them on and off and you can fairly easily pick one of 7 colors. Beyond that, the app is cumbersome and non-intuitive. If you want to do something different than have every light do the same thing, good luck. With a little more thought, they could have made it somewhat user friendly. The color picker does not work on an iPhone 5s. The color wheel is a grainy ellipse with a chunk missing. The missing chunk is on the opposite side of the screen. It works better on an iPad but still not that great. Selecting colors is hit or miss. All look whiter than what you expect. A better option is to find a led color chart on the web and use the sliders to choose a color by the numbers.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
