The Command Center is a new approach to the convenience panel that has been used in the RV market for many years. Command Center uses the latest in capacitive touch technology and OLED displays to display the condition of the batteries and tanks.
“Command Center replaces the old unattractive convenience panel and auxiliary switches with a high tech All-in-One console,” Intellitec Regional Sales Manager Chad Friesner says. “It is easily customizable, and controls up to six slide outs or awnings. We designed in a unique scroll through menu that provides the RV owner a user-friendly interface. Command Center also has Lock Out functions designed in, allowing the RV owner to isolate all the motor controls via the Command Center. Command Center is the perfect solution for the RV market, it is so sleek, modern and adds reliability. If an RV OEM wants to add a feature to a new model, we simply just change the overlay, that’s it.”
