Forest River has adopted Lippert Components’ OneControl ConnectAnywhere smart RV technology for all 2020 Cedar Creek and Riverstone brand units. New 2020 Cedar Creek and Riverstone owners will receive a free Amazon Echo Dot, as well as three free months of data, from Lippert Components.
2020 Forest River Cedar Creek and Riverstone units will feature the smart RV technology of OneControl ConnectAnywhere, which allows users to access the internet through a cellular connection. ConnectAnywhere provides an increased signal range. ConnectAnywhere incorporates cellular technology that allows owners to control and monitor many of their RV systems from anywhere there is an available cellular signal. Users will be able to control lighting, water tanks, and more, and with the free Amazon Echo Dot, owners can use voice commands to control their RV systems.
“ConnectAnywhere not only gets RVs into the touch pad era, it also allows us to communicate on a platform users are familiar with,” said Curtis Gunter, General Manager at Forest River. “The ability to send information directly to the end consumers will enhance the ownership experience. We are very excited to offer OneControl ConnectAnywhere in these units.”
Every new 2020 Cedar Creek and Riverstone owner will receive a free Amazon Echo Dot featuring Alexa-enabled voice control. These owners will also be able to redeem three free months of cellular data from LCI’s wireless data plans. With the Echo Dot, owners can use voice commands to operate their unit’s OneControl enabled systems and features.
“Forest River is offering RVers a unique opportunity with the incorporation of OneControl ConnectAnywhere. With the free Amazon Echo Dot, owners can utilize Amazon’s Alexa voice-controlled technology to control and monitor lighting, water tanks, and anything they would normally use Alexa for,” said Andy Murray, chief sales officer for LCI. “With three months of free data, we’ve essentially turned these RVs into a Wi-Fi hotspot so owners can bypass busy campground Wi-Fi. We’re excited to offer Forest River’s customers this unique feature so they can fully experience and enjoy the connected RV experience.”
