About this app

Maintaining complete control over your kiln is crucial, however, what happens when you need to step away from it for a long period of time? Should something go wrong, precious time, energy, and resources are wasted. With the TAP Kiln Control Mobile App, you can continue to remotely monitor, update, and maintain control of your kiln as though you never left.

All that is required is a simple connection to the internet via a USB Wi-Fi Dongle and installation of TAP Kiln Control Mobile app on your mobile device. This will allow you to control and receive real-time data from your kiln no matter where you are.


About TAP Kiln Controllers:

The Temperature Automation by Proportional-Integral-Derivative (TAP) controller is the most advanced kiln control technology available on the market.

The controller is designed to remove the guesswork from the process of creating, modifying, executing, and monitoring firing schedules, and you can now do it from your mobile device as well.

It’s simple and streamlined graphical user interface allows for easy installation and immediate programming and operation.


TAP Kiln Control Mobile App allows you to remotely: 

• Monitor and check the live status of your kilns
• Create, modify, and update schedules and kiln settings
• View and abort firing logs
• Receive notifications of firing completion, errors, step advancement, and temperature
• Receive preventative maintenance alerts to keep you updated on the status and remaining life expectancy of critical kiln components


Requirements:

• A TAP Kiln Controller with the latest available software.
• Active internet connection for TAP Controller and mobile device.

NOTE: TAP Kiln Control Mobile is designed specifically for, and can only be used in conjunction with, the TAP Kiln Controller from SDS Industries.

Disclaimer:

Please take careful note that neither the TAP Kiln Controller nor TAP Kiln Control Mobile – whether used in conjunction or not, is not intended as 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. TAP Kiln and/or SDS Industries cannot guarantee protection against relay failure and therefore cannot be held liable in the event of damage, loss, or harm.

For technical assistance or questions about the TAP Controller or TAP Kiln Control Mobile, please contact info@kilncontrol.com or visit www.kilncontrol.com.

I'm not loving it yet. The help section says I can download my firing log but there is no way to do so. The log of each firing is so small on my phone's screen that it's useless. The diagnostic section just reads invalid date and no information is recorded pertaining to my usage. The app and the kiln are registering the correct date but not on the diagnostic page. According to what bugs they claimed they fixed, I'm not seeing it. I just got this kiln and controller and everything is up to date.

I'm sorry you're not loving it yet. We're always available to help at info@kilncontrol.com Firing logs can be viewed, zoomed, and scrolled by interacting with the graph. Offloading logs is available from the Event Logs tab. Diagnostics are running counts of usage, in actuations (for relays) or hours:minutes (for elements and thermocouple).

Love the TAP controller. It makes running and, especially, creating firing schedules. Seeing the schedule as a table makes so much sense. The app is a great way to monitor the kiln and even make adjustments on the fly if needed. The only issue I've had with it is it doesn't always connect consistently. Their customer support is excellent. I had the software crash four days ago, got a response from them in 18 minutes. I sent them the board, they corrected the problem, and I'm back up today.

Using this app on old Pixel 3 XL. Gives me all the info I need to keep me from having to go to kiln room to "check on things" periodically during firings. Functionally, it's got everything I need: Graphical display of progress, current status, etc. Allows review/maintenance of schedules (those previously defined, as well as one currently running) from the comfort of my recliner. I am also extremely pleased with the level of support I have got from SDS on both the mobile and controller apps.
