Vega Touch Apps on Iphone

I was watching Woo from NIDRVC on how to update a Vega Touch on Youtube
noticed he used a Vega touch app Nebula to update. Checking farther i noticed it look like it could be use for other purposes, Like bat voltage and other beside to update. Im looking to just see House Batt voltages at night when in Quartzsite next month. My question is does this work and which is the correct App, i notice there are several Woo used NEBULA. ive read a lot about the other one that cost $99 that a lot of people have trouble installing it. Read the ratings.

Anyhow has any one tried this and does it read house bat voltages and which is the correct app to use?

Ron,

Those of us with 17s and 18s are stuck with the Crestron app (Mobile Pro G), which as far as I know doesnít get updated; the last update is a year ago. FWIW, Iím disappointed that after paying $99 for the app weíve been orphaned by Entegra, Firefly and Crestron, but such is the RV and electronics world.

Firefly Integrations has several versions of Vegatouch covering different models and manufacturers. Before Vegatouch, they used Crestron. The Crestron app was for the earlier models pretty much useless and $99.. I believe they used Crestron until 2018 then changed to Vegatouch which is their design. In 2019 it was accessible via the Internet.

The 19's were the first year with Nebula and it does just about anything remotely as long as the prep-wave router is connected to wifi. The price did drop to $15. for all devices, tablets phones, etc. Nice system, I am very pleased with it.

Ron

What you are being told by earlier posts is absolutely correct. What you are seeing on Woo's video is the Nebula app as seen on an iPhone or smart Phone. It is sort of a bad representation of what you see on the VegaTouch panel in the coach. However, the Nebula version running on a iPad is an exact copy of the displays and information you see in the coach. Everything you can see in the coach is displayed on the iPad and in exactly the same format.

I had not used the iPad version for the past year, and a friend of mine, Ditto, told me I was nuts for not using it as you could see more and make your way around the windows much more easily. He (Ditto) had just bought a 2020 Anthem which he has in Florida while he is still home in Massachusettes, and he checks on how his coach is functioning and dealing with high and low temperatures by logging onto the coach using the iPAD app and checking on it from home. I had never done that and my coach is right beside the house now, but I gave it a try and it is really a fantastic bit of remote monitoring. During winter, the last thing I did at night and the first thing I did in the morning was check the coach's temperatures, adjust the heating or cooling, lock and unlock the doors, etc. Now I do all of that from inside the house !!! Amazing. Gettin more lazy.....

However, the coach has to be a '19 or newer to get that feature with the new full display software.

Just set the Auto Gen Start and sleep comfortably. We have all the fancy feature so we don't have to get out of bed.

Charge your batteries 2 hours before quite time and all will hopefully be good. If not, talk to Don while your there about settings.

I tried this last year at Q but it never started auto, I set it at 12.4 to test it didn't start but later found out i didn't set it correctly somehow forget what i did or didn't do. MY batts never seems to get below 12.4 over night and i sleep with a CPAP machine all night and usually TV all night. I Just happen to run accross the NIDRVC vid and thought id check it out.

Thanks to all for the input
Don is a wealth of info, he's helped me in the past.

I have a 2020 Cornerstone. I use the vegatouch nebula app with a 10" galaxy tab a ... I've found that running the nebula app on a tablet is a far superior solution and will allow you to do most of what the vegatouch panel will do. As well as other things at the same time. Can't do that with a cell phone.
