Precision Plex App for iPhone

Iím posting this out here because I havenít seen any other conversation on it, so Iíll bring a little awareness for anyone interested...

The newer Legacyís have a free app called Precision Plex that (mostly) mirrors the control panel.

Works really well. The only thing Iíve found that you canít do is control the thermostat from bed.

Works via Bluetooth and is very responsive.

Oh great! Something else I won't know how to use. Lol. Thanks for the info, I saw that mentioned in your earlier post and was wondering.

Nice. Iíll have to give this a shot? Any way to make it work over WiFi versus Bluetooth so you can control it from a greater distance?

No it seems to be Bluetooth only. Since you can control the slides with it, thatís probably best for safety reasons anyways Iíd think.

I will say that the range is really good! Iím sitting 50í away in the house and can control light (as a test) without problems...

Iíve found that I use it most when emptying tanks...

Thatís cool. I was curious if it could be rigged in such a manner. My rig has an AGS on it but Iíd be sick if anything happened to the HVAC and my dogs got too hot in the coach. Does anyone use a WiFi temperature alarm of some sort? If so, what are the specs on it so I can get one?

I donít use anything like this, but you could design a small ďweather stationĒ without too much trouble. The biggest challenge is that you need to have a solid network gateway. Mobile hotspot would do nicely...

Google ďdiy weather stationĒ... there are Raspberry PI solutions, etc that donít cost too much and are kind of fun.

Thereís probably several off the shelf internet appliances as well...

Edit: a quick search turned this up... looks like it would work nicely with a hotspot.

@TKN 516 thanks for the advice. I appreciate it and will look into this one and check out a couple of Pi solutions as well.

No problem! Best of luck... after seeing how reasonably priced those little temp probes are, I would lean that way first... Iím sure there are other competing products as well.

Yes, this is nice. I like it. You can be outside and control the slides......

Agree. Iíve found that I use it most when filling the fresh water tank with the slide out. Can see the level without leaning under there to push the button. Not necessary at all, but a cool feature!
