Grand Design 2019 Momentum to feature OneControl® ConnectAnywhere™ cellular technology
Elkhart, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®) announces that Grand Design’s 2019 Momentum units will come standard with OneControl® ConnectAnywhere™ cellular technology. The 2019 Momentum OneControl units will be on display at the 2018 Elkhart RV Open House, September 24-27.
OneControl ConnectAnywhere gives the RV owner an even more powerful option for wireless control of their coach’s features. “ConnectAnywhere offers the user remote access to many of their RV’s functions from their mobile device, virtually anywhere that they have a cellular signal. This is an improvement over the standard OneControl system that we introduced several years ago that only allows the user to control and monitor many RV functions within a 100-foot range of their coach,” stated Andy Murray, LCI’s Chief Sales Officer. “With ConnectAnywhere, owners have the ability to control and monitor various functions including holding tanks, HVAC systems, generators, water heaters, and lighting from virtually anywhere in the world they have a cellular signal, as long as the RV’s OneControl system is powered up.”
“We are excited to feature the OneControl cellular technology on this year’s Momentum and M-Class. Our customers like the ease of use and the convenience factor. It’s really a game-changer. ConnectAnywhere gives our customers more freedom than ever before, especially in scenarios when they’re away from their coach. This can be as simple as using the cellular technology to cool their coach down on a hot day if they had left their pet inside. It’s these kind of things our customers are asking for, so we’re proud to deliver them.” stated Nate Goldenberg, General Manager for Grand Design RV.
Owners who activate ConnectAnywhere’s cellular services will enjoy their own private wireless network, bypassing the commonly unreliable campground Wi-Fi networks. ConnectAnywhere was engineered and designed to allow multiple devices to be connected to the internet without a sacrifice in connectivity or performance.
ConnectAnywhere can alert owners to various issues when they happen, automatically create a service case with customer service, then seamlessly connect them with an LCI customer service representative. This can prevent a costly visit from an RV technician, not to mention a delay of their hard-earned vacation. OneControl ConnectAnywhere users will also benefit from upgraded features, such as voice control, powered by Amazon’s Alexa.
Continued Murray, “We believe that ConnectAnywhere’s diagnostic capabilities are a true game-changer for the industry. Our goal as a company is to make the mobile lifestyle as seamless as possible. We’re extremely proud of our engineering teams for building the immensely complex system architecture to make this diagnostic technology a reality for OneControl owners.”
OneControl, like most other mobile applications, will be continually upgraded with new and exciting features, enhanced usability, and improved diagnostics tools in the coming months. All OneControl owners will be able to benefit from these improvements by simply updating their OneControl app to the latest version.
