About TAP Kiln Controllers:
TAP is the most advanced kiln control technology available on the market.
The Temperature Automation by Proportional-Integral-Derivative (TAP) controller is the leading, commercially available kiln control solution. It utilizes an intuitive graphical user interface to enable you to immediately start programming and operating your kiln from any location at any time. This controller is designed to take the guesswork out of firing schedule creation, modification, execution, and monitoring, and now you are able to do all of this from your mobile device.

Please note that the TAP Kiln Controller, whether used with the TAP Kiln Control Mobile app or not, is not a safety device. The controller provides 12VDC outputs to operate relays, which in turn enable/disable kiln heating elements. It is possible for relays to fail in the ON position. Neither this controller, nor the app, cannot protect against relay failure.

Better experience


After putting the kiln on its own dedicated wifi network, it’s been working flawlessly and I can’t complain. None of the past issues have come up again and using the app is now easy and makes this whole process so much better for me. As a first time kiln owner, I have nothing to compare it too, but I feel having the wifi capability is indispensable.

Waited 8 months for my pottery kiln. This app is nice, when it works. Often disconnects, says IP address on kiln is disconnected. Directions given for a restart are not clear enough. Had to figure it out on my own and even that didn’t fix the problem.

Loving the new version

I had used the old version and always hoped the app would get an update. Now I can see exactly where my kiln is during a firing and for how long without being in the studio. Yesterday I had three kilns running. One doing a full fuse, one doing a schedule I wrote for lace effects and one doing a drop. As you can imagine my studio gets a wee bit warm when all three are firing. At every hold for the drop out I received a alert on my phone. I was able check the progress without babysitting my kiln. I could see exactly the temp and how long it had been holding. So instead of sitting and watching for 6 hours, I went and checked the progress every hour and was able to stop the kiln exactly when the bowl touched the shelf. Today I am running just one kiln and every step the app is letting me know where the schedule is. Thanks for doing the updated version because I am thrilled with it. The only improvement I can think of is letting me start a program from the app.

Thanks for the great review!

Our latest version has implemented remote starting via the App. We hope you enjoy the added flexibility and convenience!


No Socket Connection

I get the warning No Socket Connection all the time.

I’ll be really honest, I love the APP and for those who say it should have an on and off through the app you can program and extra step you can skip step to start your schedule.

That’s what I do.

I love that you can update the app on the fly.

I’m not sure what the no socket issues is??
I would totally pay for a more reliable service.

I’m using this as a jeweler on my kiln and it’s amazing! Every jeweler who does castings needs one of these things.

With resin 3D printing and castings Temp Control and Ramp is super important to achieve top quality results.

I love this APP and product I hope the developer takes care of the No Socket issue and gets a better version of this thing on the App Store.

Thank you for the positive feedback and alerting us to the issue you experienced. We had experienced some intermittent server issues that should now be resolved.

We've recently redesigned the app and hope it is serving you much better, without any of the pesky "No Socket Connection" errors you saw before!

We're always available to answer questions, comments, or concerns via in-app feedback, email, or through our live chat at kilncontrol.com
