WiFiRanger Partners With Yak Power On First “HEY RANGER READY” Initiative

“HEY RANGER” Enables Voice Control & AI  of New Award Winning Power Switching System

September 24th, 2018 – Meridian, Idaho – WiFiRanger, the leader in Innovative RV solutions, today announced their first “Hey Ranger Ready” alignment with Yak Power’s innovative new switching system. The arrangement allows a drop in module to the versatile Eight Circuit Yak Power Digital Switching System that makes it entirely controllable via secure and private voice commands issued by the new WiFiRanger AI Universal Assistant.

“The Yak Power systems unique and flexible wireless architecture allowed us to quickly develop “skills” to engage all the switching components from our AI Universal Assistant, making its already simple use, even more convenient.”

Kelly Hogan
CEO & Visionary, WiFiRanger

The ‘Hey Ranger Ready’ initiative is an open based way of registering and sharing control protocols of new and legacy RV systems allowing owners of WiFiRanger AI Universal Assistant’s to summon control and status of their RV via voice. Based on the growing standards of skills and voice interpretation tools, WiFIRanger has began building a skills database and aligning the control mechanisms based around IP, Bluetooth, or proprietary hardware protocols, and making those skills available to WiFiRanger owners for installation upon their AI Universal Assistants.

For proprietary systems already in the field, WiFiRanger has began building hardware bridges that allow connection to the AI system via a custom hardware device that interprets and encodes the legacy information, passing it to and from the AI system for processing.

The open approach taken allows OE’s to select from the best system solutions on the market, and then request vendors to provide their control protocols to build skills that sync with the WIFIRanger, or, use one of the hardware bridges that WIFRanger has engineered to run each proprietary system solution.

“As an example of the power of our initiative, we built a hardware bridge to the legendary SeeLevel II tank management system, allowing any owner of these systems to summon tank status by simply asking. What a great way to give back to the RV industry than to voice enable 20 years of legacy equipment! We will work with any systems provider in helping them develop skills for their systems, and can also assist in designing hardware bridges to the proprietary hardware.” continued Hogan.

“Our goal has always been to make a simple, flexible, and price competitive switching system for the RV industry, and adding Voice Control and AI onto it really hits the mark in terms of innovating the industry. We’re happy to have the opportunity to be one of the first system vendors to adhere to the ‘Hey Ranger Ready’ standard and deliver the most value to our OE and end customers.”
