Question: Do I need an internet connection to use the COBRA Control Panel?


No, an internet connection is not required to use the COBRA Control Panel. The COBRA Control Panel operates by communicating with the COBRA 18R2 via a USB connection. This means you can manage and control your firing system without the need for an active internet connection on-site.

However, it is important to note that while internet connectivity is not needed for the direct operation of the Control Panel, it is required for updating the app. Updates for the COBRA Control Panel app are available through Google Play Store. We highly recommend checking for and applying any updates to the app before your show or event. Keeping the app updated ensures that you have access to the latest features and that any known issues are resolved, enhancing the reliability and performance of your COBRA firing system.
