Spyder Controls on iPhone or iPad

I have a 2019 Bus 45OPP and am wondering is there is an app to control things from an iPad or IPhone.

Many other manufacturers are starting to offer this option and I was curious if there are any aftermarket solutions for Tiffin owners?

There was one made a couple,of years ago called Coach Proxy but the owner stopped making the product. We bought it back in 2018. Works great on both my iPhone and IPad and actually controls more than my Spyder panels do.
I think if you do a search on the internet you might find more info about this.

Anyone have experience with coach proxy and a 2021 allegro red? Also, what is the advantage of coach proxy vs firefly and vice versa?

I talked with Firefly. Sounds like a good system if you want to spend $$ for local control and $$$$ for internet control. I would like to have Coach Proxy for our '19 Phaeton, but only if it is basically plug and play. No longer interested in building and configuring custom hardware and software.

I was finally able to receive the Mira module from Firefly. I can now control everything in my 45OPP from my phone while inside or outside the coach (within bluetooth range). I LOVE IT!! No more getting up from the theater seat to kill the lights, lower the shades, or adjust the temp. My wife is happy as she doesn't like the location of the panel on the passenger arm rest. She loves using her phone when she is in the copilot seat.

Here is the contact info for Firefly:

Has anyone tried Spyder Control Systems directly? Website is https://spydercontrols.com/. I wonder if they also have a solution? Tried calling but no one answered yet.

I have left a e-mail and two voice mails for Nick at Firefly and he has not yet responded.

Very frustrating

I feel your pain. For me it took multiple calls and emails over the course of a month just to figure out how to purchase the unit. I'm guessing Nick is a very busy man.

Here is one other person you can reach out to. It may help speed things up.
Sherry Gibson
sherryg@fireflyint.com
574-825-4600

Sherry is the person who emailed me my invoice. Good luck.
