ASA Electronics Debuts iN∙Command Global Connect

Mon Nov 27, 2017

148095688691540.jpgELKHART, Ind. – ASA Electronics announced the company's next stage of campsite control with iN-Command Global Connect. The newest generations of iN-Command Pro and Pro Plus Control Systems will be equipped with the iN-Command Global Connect feature that allows RV owners to stay in control of their RV from anywhere in the world using the latest iN-Command app.

iN∙Command Global Connect allows iN∙Command customers to monitor tank levels, battery voltage, and temperature as well as control lights, water heater and pump, generator, and HVAC using an internet or cellular data connection.

"People are getting used to having technology at their fingertips in their homes. We wanted to bring that same smart home technology to their campsites," says RV industry manager Jim Hess. "iN∙Command Global Connect adds another layer to that, where RV owners can maintain control of their RV from pretty much anywhere."

In addition to extending the reach of iN¬Command Control Systems, iN-Command Global Connect also makes it easier to maintain the system. With the feature, the system has the ability to run software updates automatically when an update is required. The new iN-Command Control Systems offer the benefit of remote diagnostic support. Using Global Connect technology, trained iN∙Command service technicians can communicate directly with the system. This on-the-spot troubleshooting will make it faster and easier for dealers to get their customers back on the road, the company says in the announcement.

ASA Electronics will debut their new iN¬Command Control Systems with Global Connect at the National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Kentucky this week, booth 269 in the North Wing Lobby of the Kentucky Exposition Center.
