The iN-Command App with Global Connect functionality is specifically for use with our 3rd generation RV Control and Monitoring product which is identified by the Global Connect logo on the Display Commander (LCD touch controller). We have updated the App graphics, added control functionality (including Climate control for compatible HVAC systems) as well as the ability to monitor and control your RV remotely through the Cloud (internet connection required). By connecting your smart-phone or tablet to the system’s LCD touch controller and registering your cloud account, iN-Command now puts you “In Command” of your RV from any location.

Bug fixes and performance improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
Works well with a few bugs
Overall this app works well.
You do NOT need wifi for this app. If you are at the RV, it connects via Bluetooth. If you are away from the RB, then yes, the RV has to be connected to wifi for this app to communicate with it.
Latest version (and RV software updates) as of this writing solves a bug where tank status was not showing on the app.
The primary bug with this app is re-connecting after switching out of the app. 9 out of 10 times, it’s faster to kill the app and restart it than wait for it to try and reconnect when you switch back to it. If they fix this bug so that reconnecting is smoother, I would increase the rating to 4 stars.
There are a few design flaws in the iN·Command system that is not the fault of this app. I did not weigh these factors in my rating but users should be aware: The exterior lights button doesn’t control the awning lights, the HVAC scheduler doesn’t work from the panel (it works in the app but is poorly designed and is pretty much useless). There’s no indication of wifi status without logging in from the panel and wading several menus deep. There’s no alert on the panel
Or via Bluetooth when wifi is dropped. To see the internal temperature(s) you have to click into each HVAC (the temp should be shown on the lock screen along with tank status)
Everything but tanks
This app works well, with the exception of the tanks. Black tank is the only accurate sync on the app with the unit.
But it sure is nice to be able to stand outside and control the slides with my phone. Much better in tight situations than inside the trailer.
Setup is not very easy, I have still not figured it out
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
