The Wireless Awning Control System works with all 12V Carefree awnings, a company statement says. A control module located inside the RV is the key to operation. The control module receives remote signals from the Carefree Bluetooth app or included control fob to activate awning functions.

Controllable functions with the wireless system include awning extension; retraction; LED lighting control of on, off, or dim; and updating of the firmware via the Carefree Mobile app.

When paired with the Bluetooth-enabled motion sensor, the control system can adjust the sensitivity of the motion sensor via the Carefree app offering.
