Control your TV with just your mobile phone.
We'd been working with Maxview on other products for a couple of years when we floated around the ideas of how Apple and Google were starting to introduce their car products into motorhomes, and it would make sense to explore this space. An idea was born.
Maxview's products are high quality and reliable - but, they rely upon satellites in space and even a slight movement in their orbit can cause TV signals to be lost.
On the road travelling, you required an Internet connection and a USB stick, but if you wanted to settle down and enjoy some home comforts, that can ruin your night - Maxview wanted to solve this and provide a platform for future product updates in-line with their innovative nature.
We worked alongside Maxview and their partners to integrate Bluetooth technology into their Connect satellite dish and built an iOS and Android app to control the device; replacing the need for the current control box.
Additionally, to provide software update functionality, we built a custom API which delivers updates straight to the satellite as soon as they are ready.
