ICON functions as an intelligent bike light, independent of the app or smartphone connections.  The intelligent features do not require a smartphone connection and it will react to your environment on the road, keeping you most visible whenever you need to be. 

However, we do recommend connecting to our free and easy to use app, so that you can take advantage of ICON’s additional connected features such as crash and theft detection alerts, as well as providing an optional interface to control your lights and receive low battery notifications.  Over time, enhancements and additions to the firmware will be available via firmware over the air (FOTA) updates that are only accessible if you are connected to the app.
