MERIDIAN, Idaho — WiFiRanger, a provider of RV connectivity and control solutions, today announced its next generation product line to debut at RVX including a complete new ecosystem of products encapsulating improvements to connectivity, voice and app control, and media access simplification.
“The entire objective of the Converge product line has been to re-think standards the legacy RV industry has dealt with, and then envision what the user experience should be,” said Kelly Hogan, CEO and visionary at WiFiRanger.
“Converge delivers this through a rooftop system, encapsulating multiple systems and minimizing footprint while converging Wi-Fi, LTE, radio, HDTV and GPS into a single beautiful enclosure,” he added.
“The indoor products include our private AI universal assistant, and the wall InfoCenter that simplifies RV connectivity and control for the owner,” Hogan explained. “All products are equally controlled by voice, or via more traditional handheld device apps.”
The fin shaped outdoor base platform is designed to include WiFiRangers long-range Wi-Fi, LTE and GPS solutions, with an optional AM/FM and high gain amplified omni HDTV antenna for OTA TV, as well as the new OptionDeck OnPoint antenna rotator allowing long range HDTV directional head end antennas to be easily pointed.
The indoor AI universal assistant product houses the private AI engine allowing voice control of all systems within the RV, in an ergonomic ceiling mounted package including beam forming LEDs with microphones, as well as a convenient LED ceiling light, said Hogan.
The InfoCenter wall device replaces the legacy TV wall plate with a powerful antenna/cable switch box including amplifier DC injection, offering dual USB charge points, and a handheld device holding bail.
It may also include a touch screen enabled WiFiRanger, allowing more features and converting stand alone WiFiRanger outdoor units into the desired pack offering.
“An equally important consideration in the design of the ecosystem was to re-imagine the aesthetics of devices inside, and on the roof of the RV,” said Hogan. “It seemed to us that manufacturers and owners were limited to roof devices resembling buckets, boxes, or mushrooms, so we proved that function and beauty can co-exist in an aerodynamic and aesthetically pleasing fin shape, housing communication antennas and facilitating options for the future.”
Volume orders may be placed now for the product line and will begin shipping to key RV manufacturers and aftermarket customers in July.
WiFiRanger products are envisioned, designed and assembled in Meridian, Idaho. Information and ordering is available directly at WIFIRanger.com and direct inquiries can be emailed to [email protected], or by calling 208.321.5544.
