Smart Weather Electronic Ignition Systems 110V or 12V High Capacity

These Smart Weather Electronic Ignition Systems (SWEIS) utilize CSA-certified components and are designed for outdoor fire features.

What is Fire Pit Electronic Ignition?

Electronic Ignition provides the highest level of safety available for a gas fire pit along with options to light your burner either via an ON/Off switch, Electric Timers, Emergency Stop Buttons, a swimming pool system, remote control, an App, or a home automated system to provide effortless control of your fire pit.

An Electronic Ignition system is the most sophisticated way to light your fire pit.

The SWEIS monitors the presence of a flame using a thermocouple and should the flame be extinguished will make several attempts to relight the flame. Only if that fails will the system shut off the gas supply.

SWEIS units are not only incredibly robust but safety is also a top priority for The Outdoor Plus. The units are tested in both mild rain and snow and can withstand winds up to 55mph. The unit will shut off automatically in unsafe, severe rain & wind conditions.

Further Information

  • Compatible with both Natural Gas and Liquid Propane (Portable LP Tank or Hard Line LP )
  • The small construction allows it to be installed in tight spaces such as fire bowls.
  • Proper Venting – Certain fire pit enclosures may require extra ventilation depending on size, material, or extended use. 1 Square Inch of ventilation is REQUIRED for every 10,000 BTUs. This is especially important for propane units, as propane gas is heavier than air and can pool in the bottom of an enclosure.
  • Fire Media smaller than 1/2″ is not recommended for liquid propane applications.  You can use 1/2″ to 3/4″ Fire glass specifically designed and approved for fire features as well as stones of man-made materials (refractory) designed for fire pits. DO NOT USE SAND, AND DO NOT FILL HOLLOW AREAS.
  • An Air Mixer for Propane Is Recommended for Propane Burners.
  • A listed manual gas shutoff device must be installed prior to the location of the appliance.
  • The pilot is configured for natural gas. A propane gas injector is provided in the kit.
  • A heat shield/plate or burner pan MUST be installed between the SWEIS and the burner ring to avoid overheating.
  • Only a qualified installer, service agent or local gas supplier may install and service this product.
