Yes! Your Ember can be used independently at a set temperature of 130°F. Using it independently will limit you from customizing specific features from the Ember mobile app such as customizing your LED color identifier, changing the temperature from 120°F to 145°F and assigning presets to different drinks. Also, without the Ember App paired to your Ember, you will not be able to update the firmware.
