  1. Ensure Bluetooth is active on your mobile device, and your Trigger is powered on.
  2. Download and install App on your Android or IOS device. Search “Trigger ACS” if you have difficulty locating it in your App Store.
  3. Once downloaded and installed, go to your system's Bluetooth settings to pair your phone to the Trigger Controller.
    1. iOS: Bluetooth pairing occurs automatically, do not attempt to manually pair the App. If you try (and fail) to manually pair the app, go to Settings in the Trigger app and tap 'Forget Active Trigger'. Force-quit the app and restart the phone. Once the phone is back up and running, launch the Trigger app and tap the 'GO' button to connect. Power-cycling the Trigger module is a good idea.

  4. Launch the App, tap the 'GO!' button in the center of the screen to connect to your Trigger Controller.
  5. After a few seconds, the App will connect to your controller. Power, strobe, and dimming functionality will now be active.

  6. Launch app and Add Six Shooter device as normal

 

This procedure will work with both iOS or Android devices.

for your 4 channel with the trigger acs app

 

If you find that the app is not connecting to the 4 channel Trigger, try this first:

 

  1. Power off the Trigger and force-quit the app.
  2. Wait 1-3 minutes to allow the Trigger to flush any residual Bluetooth data.
  3. Power up your Trigger
  4. Launch the app
  5. Tap 'Scan' to connect

 

If you have your Trigger always connected to power (not switched) and are unable to get the app to connect, try this:

 

  1. Disconnect trigger from power.
  2. Wait 1-3 minutes to allow the Trigger to flush any residual Bluetooth data.
  3. Reconnect trigger to power.
  4. Force-quit the app
  5. Launch the app
  6. Tap 'Scan' to connect

 

These techniques have worked consistently for us during in-house testing, however there are too many unique mobile hardware configurations to claim they will work for everyone. If after trying these steps you are still unable to connect, please call our tech support team and they will do their best to get you up and running.

reset 4 channel trigger rf remote passcode

 

The 4 channel Trigger Accessory Control System includes a feature for custom RF Remote Passcode settings.

While not necessary for out of the box use, you might want to consider updating your RF Remote Passcode if you experience any interference when using the system, or when installing more than one TRIGGER on the same vehicle.

 

  1. On the Control Module, press and hold buttons 1 and 4 simultaneously … the blue LED indicator for circuit 4 will flash several times and then remain solid. Release buttons 1 and 4.
  2. On the remote, press and hold keys 1 and 4 simultaneously until the backlight turns off. Release keys 1 and 4, the backlight should now be flashing. The RF Remote is now ready to accept a new passcode.
  3. Choose a new passcode by pressing keys 1 and/or 4 on the remote in any combination of your choosing; the passcode must be three or more numbers in length, and only using keys 1 and/or 4. In this video, we set the code to ‘1144’. Finally, press and hold keys 1 and 4 on the remote simultaneously until the backlight stops flashing. Release keys 1 and 4, wait several seconds for the backlight to turn on and off. Your new RF Remote Passcode is now active.
  4. Pressing keys 2 or 3 on the remote will exit Passcode Setting Mode.

What is Chassis Ground and why should I care?

 

When our 4 channel TRIGGER was initially conceived, it was designed to be a 'negative switching' controller. This design let to some interesting results with certain lighting brands. Current gen hardware has been updated to a more common positive switching system. If you own a first gen system and your lights are misbehaving, we have a solution. It requires a little electronic know-how ... you can do it!
