Lippert Systems offers the OneControl Hotspot (formerly known as Wi-Fi On the Go) as part of their overall OneControl system, which is designed to let RVers control and monitor their RV systems from the unit’s touchscreen or a smartphone.
OneControl Hotspot lets you create your own personal wireless network. It incorporates a weatherproof, low-profile external cellular antenna array for increasing cellular signal range. This unit mates with SMA RG-174 coaxial cable, or has an option for a bulkhead SMA female connector. The external antenna can be permanently or temporarily mounted.
The OneControl Hotspot transfers a cellular signal to create a local area network (LAN) WiFi signal. The unit incorporates two 2.4 GHz WiFi antennas to provide LAN coverage at a longer range throughout your rig and the surrounding area.
Lippert offers two data packages with this product, based on the AT&T network. They offer a 5GB plan for $37 and a 10GB plan for $65. The data plan must be purchased through Lippert, the preinstalled SIM card in the unit is uniquely paired with the gateway that is in the kit.
