Let’s face it. The only way to get better at anything is practice. Sure, bits of gear here and there and a high end gun can help, but it won’t take you to a new level like practice will. How can you practice in a shooting sport, you ask? You shoot. Sure, you could shoot at paper targets or cans, but that gets a little messy and after a while, you’ll have to replace them. Or, you could shoot at metal targets. But if you’re surrounded by sound or are wearing ear protection, how can you be 100% certain that you hit it? The search for the perfect airsoft target is over. IoTargeting Smart Target System IoTargeting’s Smart Target Systems truly are something else. Their rugged construction, built with aluminum and a reinforced silicone hit face really makes these targets durable and extremely lightweight. They are powered by the common AA battery, which allows them to be 100% wireless. There is a 20 hour battery life and a power saving sleep mode. There are built in daytime LED lights, which allows the shooter to see the targets on the brightest of days. All of these things make a superior system, however there is just one more thing. IT IS ENTIRELY APP CONTROLLED! Advanced App Control The biggest deal about these targets is it’s ability to be controlled totally from your phone or tablet. There is no going to set up a new paper target or can. The app tells you everything you need to know. There are a total of nine different game modes. Random Mode Time Trial Random Time Trial Reaction Time Simon Says Follow the Leader Reaction Draw Follow the Leader Race Each one of these games is an unbelievable way to enhance your rifle or pistol skills. In fact, it’s the only real way to get better short of an actual skirmish. And a lot of the games are even more fun when playing with a friend or two. Whether you want to practice your reaction time, speed, or accuracy, this system will help tremendously. Or better yet, you could simply just have fun. Advanced Self-Repairing Technology Another neat feature is that you can connect up to 20 targets and manage a course that is up to 1,500 feet. You don’t have to just line them up in a row. Oh no. You can build a course almost anywhere. The targets have a self-repairing mesh technology, which means if a target loses connectivity with the others (batteries die, etc.), the system will bypass that specific target, so your whole system doesn’t go down. This in itself was a smart feature to add from the Engineers at IoTargeting. More Than Just Smart Targets IoTargeting actually has two lines of targets. The Smart Targets, and a basic line called Just Targets (or JT for short). The Just Targets are exactly that, just targets. However, it’s not as basic as a regular old target. This simplified line still features the wireless, LED capabilities of the Smart Targets, however they are not able to connect with each other or have game modes. The idea behind this line is simple. You shoot the target, the light changes. If you are the type of person who wants quality, but don’t need extra features, the Just Target line is for you. We have got the entire line, as well as bundles available. Final Thoughts The airsoft community has desperately needed an electronic target system that didn’t break the bank or were so simple to set up and use. We’ve had them in our shooting range for approximately one year and easily over 100,000 rounds put on the targets and haven’t had the need to replace a single one. On the left, you see a brand new, 100% unused target system. On the right, you see a target system that has been heavily used for one year. If these images aren’t a glowing testimony, I don’t know what is. You can buy all of your IoTargeting products HERE.
