Watchfire Ignite Digital Sign Software

We make programming your sign a snap. Our exclusive sign software puts eye-catching messages at your fingertips with a straightforward scheduling solution and an extensive library of free artwork.

We know that all businesses have different messaging needs and capabilities, and our suite of Ignite software products have been developed with that in mind.

Whether you're a localized business that operates one sign and prefers a desktop CMS, or you're a franchise with a creative team that works in the cloud, we have a solution for you.

Ignite OP With Companion Mobile Application

Our proprietary Ignite software continues to be the industry’s most innovative digital sign content management system, and now it’s more advanced than ever before. Ignite OP provides an intuitive desktop program that’s simple to run. When partnered with the powerful Ignite OPx mobile application, programming, scheduling and updating your sign from anywhere has never been easier.

With Ignite OP, our free EasyArt library comes standard, and includes over 1000 pre-loaded stills and animations to make your sign’s messages look polished and professional.

Our revolutionary companion mobile application puts the power to update sign content in your hands, no matter where you are, no matter when you need it. You can update playlists, publish content, schedule media, and run sign diagnostics – all from your internet-connected mobile device. There is nothing to install and all of your changes automatically sync to your desktop.

For Ignite installation instructions and Ignite tutorial videos visit our KnowledgeBase. For newer signs, generally those shipped after April 15, 2015, a digital download of the software and updated EasyArt files is available online.



Ignite is so easy to use, I’m able to do a lot of customization with it. I support local events and area high school athletics, and market our company’s promotional specials. I’m not tech savvy, but Ignite is very easy to use. If I can figure it out, anyone can.

Help When You Need It

Ignite is intuitive and easy to use, but you may also benefit from one-one, customized training sessions. Training webinars are a great way to learn expert tips and tricks for creating and scheduling powerful messages, and making the most of your sign's advertising potential. Be sure to request a training when you buy your signs, and you can always refer back to our helpful training videos if you need a refresher.
