Take control of your system anywhere with the BitFenix Recon Fan Controller. This five channel fan controller features internet connectivity - another world first from the BitFenix Design Labs. Featuring dual processors that continuously interact with your motherboard, Recon enables you to monitor and control your system on the go with any internet-connected device, including the latest smartphone, tablet or laptop. The easy-to-use touchscreen displays your current system temperatures and status, while giving you easy access to Recon's robust functionality. Customizable profiles make it easy to save and recall your favorite settings, while the SofTouch bezel makes it an attractive addition to your killer rig.
Internet Connected for Mobile Devices
Recon is the world's first internet-connected fan controller. Once setup, Recon allows you to monitor and control your system fans and temps using any internet-connected device, including smartphones, tablets, laptops. Best of all, Recon is not platform dependent and only requires a simple web browser to operate. Ideal for users who run their systems 24/7, Recon gives you total control and peace of mind - no matter where you are.
Keeping tabs on your system and making adjustments has never been easier with the Recon's easy-to-use touchscreen controls. The touchscreen offers system temperatures and fan speeds at-a-glance, and even alerts you in the event of any temperatures getting too high. The intuitive layout makes it easy to adjust your fan speeds to adapt to any situation.
Dual Processor Technology
Recon employs two custom microprocessors that interact with your system for accurate real-time status monitoring and control. Working with your motherboard, these microprocessors connect to your system and enable you to control your system's fans both locally and via mobile devices.
System Status Monitoring
Keep tabs on your system at all times with Recon’s robust system monitoring capabilities. Fan speeds are displayed at-a-glance, and both fan voltages and threshold temperatures are all right there to help keep you up-to-date on the health of your rig.
Five Channel Thermal Control
Recon gives you five thermal channels to couple your system fans with. Each channel delivers up to 10W of power, enough to drive even the largest fans!
Program your favorite settings and recall them with a single button press! Set up an entertainment profile to keep fans spinning slowly during a movie, or a gaming profile that spins up your fans full speed when the action heats up. Recon allows you to customize your own profiles and recall up to three of them on-the-fly, allowing you to be ready for any situation.
BitFenix SofTouch™ Bezel
Recon also comes with signature BitFenix SofTouch™ surface treatment. This smooth rubbery coating not only feels pleasing to the touch, but also lends a superb matte finish that makes it a handsome addition to virtually any rig.

I purchased this to replace my beloved NZXT Sentry 2, which decided it would fail on me last week. Decided to give this fan controller a try after reading decent reviews. It's essentially a Sentry 2 with higher quality components that actually supplies proper voltage to the fans, unlike the Sentry 2. I didn't bother using the USB feature as I don't need it. The one thing that disappointed me the most about the Recon is its terrible display viewing angles. You literally need to be facing the display to see things properly. Also, why it takes around 15 seconds for fan rpm settings to apply is beyond me. Overall, a decent fan controller with a few little issues that need to be ironed out.
This is a great fan controller. The touch panel works nicely. I don't have it hooked up to my usb header so I haven't been able to try its online functionality but I personally don't see a reason for that. None the less still a great fan controller on its own.
