Firefly® Lightning Simulators

The Next Generation in lightning simulators is here! The FireFly® 351 breaks new ground with the world's most advanced digital lightning simulator. Plus, we've added features our customers have been asking for, like internal CD-quality audio plus trigger inputs for lightning on demand. Trip a sensor or switch, and get instant lightning and thunder! We've also added an extra channel to control professional style strobes with FireFly.

FireFly lightning simulators can be traded in toward a newer model. Contact info@lightsalive for more information.

How Does FireFly® Compare to i-Zombie?

We're often asked how FireFly® compares to i-Zombie. We believe FireFly® is the worlds most sophisticated lightning simulator, but you be the judge. View our comparison chart here.

  1. Power rating reflects maximum wattage of bulbs connected.
  2. LED highly recommended. While compact fluorescent bulbs will work to some degree, we recommend them only for the dimmer channel.
  3. Many competitors use a lower cost burst technology. FireFly uses true phase dimming for a much more realistic effect.
  4. 3-Year limited no-fault warranty. Check owner's manual or ask for details.
  5. We provide an excellent upgrade path. Please check website or call for current offer.
  6. FireFly is proudly designed, engineered and manufactured in the United States by Lights Alive
