HPC Fire is one of the leading fire pit brands we carry here at Firepits Direct, and one of the reasons we love their products is their commitment to innovation and technology. Their electronic ignition systems are some of the best-selling products in our collection, both for their quality and convenient, easy-to-use design.
One of our favorite features of the HPC electronic ignitions is that if you choose the optional Hi/Lo model, it can be controlled via their HPC Fire ONE App on your smartphone, available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. And that's not all it does! HPC has created a full-featured tech suite for getting the most out of your fire pit, so we've decided to break down all it offers here to help with your shopping experience.

Augmented Reality: Find the Right Fire Pit For You
The first step in the process is finding a fire pit that will suit your needs. HPC offers a wide variety of pre-built gas fire pits and gas fire tables, and while you can refer to the dimensions and images on our site, the easiest way to know whether a fire feature will suit your space would be to see it in action.
The HPC Fire ONE app has you covered, with augmented reality technology that uses your phone's camera and a complete library of dimensions and images to show you exactly how a fire feature will look in your backyard or patio. If you're in the market for a new fire table or fire pit for your home or business, you can shop HPC's offerings with ease using the HPC Fire ONE app to see them in action. This feature is also helpful for contractors looking to help a customer choose a fire feature for installation.
Assembly Assitance: Guided Instructions for Your HPC Fire Feature
While every HPC fire pit and fire table comes with easy-to-use assembly instructions, the experience of putting one together gets even easier with the app. It starts off by telling what tools you'll need and what the required clearances are for your particular model and then walks you step by step through the assembly process, taking all the guesswork out of the job.
It even shows you how to properly connect the fire feature to the gas line and check for leaks, ensuring you feel confident in your installation. Finally, it also provides troubleshooting assistance, helping you identify why your fire feature may not be working correctly, and then instructs you on how to fix it quickly and easily. This part of the app is a must-have for any DIYer.
Convenient Control: Activate Your Fire Pit from Your Phone
Once you've used augmented reality to pick the right fire pit for you and used the convenient instructions to install it, you'll need a way to turn it on. While many HPC fire features either come with a remote control or can be upgraded with one, the ease and simplicity of being able to control it with your phone is tough to beat. Note: this only applies to HPC fire features with electronic ignition and Hi/Lo functionality.
It can also provide peace of mind by allowing you to implement password protection to prevent unauthorized use, and it includes a timer/lockout function that's a must for fire features in commercial applications, communal areas, rental units and AirBnB properties. On top of that, it also provides useful statistics such as total burn time and internal temperature, and it will alert you of issues so you can address them before they become costly.
