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 (Ignite OP, Ignite OPx and Ignite Sports) have been developed with that in mind.

Our content management software is designed to power digital screen networks of all kinds from anywhere in the world. Whether your display networks include indoor or outdoor screens, and display messages for advertisements, sports, or community information, Ignite OPx can bring your marketing content to life.

Ignite OPx Puts Sign Management in the Cloud

An alternative to our desktop sign software, this cloud-based option optimizes the power of digital advertising with no software to install. Ignite OPx makes it easy to manage multiple signs, indoors or out. Take control of your content with smart playlists, real-time integrated widgets, enhanced reporting and more supported file types. Perfect for large signs, digital networks, corporate programs and customers who need to integrate custom data, Ignite OPx even lets team members have customized access permissions.

Advanced features like content zones and dynamic widgets make it easy to stay on brand while offering local specials and incorporating dynamic feeds for maximum impact. Ignite OPx also includes the industry's only free library of over 1000 ready made still and animated sign graphics.

Our OPx software includes a powerful feature, the editor. The Ignite OPx editor allows you to create multi-frame messages using custom images or backgrounds. Select from multiple font options and color combinations to enhance and personalize your messages.

Sign Management with Watchfire Wireless Data Plans

Sign management is more trouble-free with Watchfire’s exclusive data plan through Verizon Wireless. Watchfire customers can purchase internet data at below market prices, and enjoy the convenience of both reliable service and mobile sign content management for the life of your sign.



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.
