RV Intelligence announced the launch of smartRVcontrols, an aftermarket DIY remote control module that is connected to a smartphone or tablet. According to a press release, a smartRVcontrols module is configured via the smartphone app to control any one of multiple functions in an RV.
“This product is what RVers have been asking for. You can now get the remote control features of high-end RVs, you can easily install smartRVcontrols yourself, and you can operate multiple features with your smartphone in your RV,” stated owner Herb Gingold.
The smartRVcontrols are multi-function remote control modules that are configured in the smartRVapp to control more than eight different features in an RV, such as lights (bulb or LED), jacks, awnings, slides, relays, valves, RGB LEDs and more. Users download the free smartphone smartRVapp, available for iOS and Android, to configure a module for the function needed. The smartRVcontrols have a 100-foot range, and cell/Wi-Fi service is not needed for operation.
The smartRVcontrols can be installed three ways:
- Replacing the existing switch with a smartRVcontrols module is the first installation option. In minutes you will have smartphone control of your RV feature. The smartRVcontrols module connects directly to the existing wiring and covers the mounting hole.
- Working with the existing switch is the second installation option. The smartRVcontrols module has external switch inputs. Using quick disconnects you can easily connect the smartRVcontrols module into the wiring to control the feature via your smartphone. The original switch will still work at all times.
- A stand-alone switch is the third installation option. This option allows you to add new smartRVcontrol features to any RV and control them with your smartphone or the smartRVcontrol switch directly.
