Jay Command

Does anyone else have this system mastered? Some parts of it, it's nice. But sometimes I wish I could throw it in the trash and just deal with light switches and buttons. The good old fashioned way.

I have the app installed on my phone. Plus the main control panel is right by the door of my Seismic. But sometimes when I go inside the camper, it says it's not connected. It shows the Bluetooth is connected but nothing works. It will connect in a few seconds or like yesterday, it takes a couple of minutes before it says its connected.

How do I make it connect and why does it disconnect? I'm just not that "tech savvy".

have you updated to latest BmPro software from the Google Play store on the tablet?

I have not updated the tablet itself. I'll check into that.

Keep this link below, it will take you to the folks who make JayCommand.
https://teambmpro.com/products/smart...powered-bmpro/
Scroll down to the bottom and you'll see small help guides to accomplish several tasks.
Tips:
Ideally you want keep your tablet charged all the time. You'll want to have it connected to the internet occasionally, if not continuously, to keep it's software updated (Google Playstore). Bluetooth pair with your camper and your phone(s) - JayCommand for smartphone. Also get RV Halo software for your phone and create an account at Winegard, then connect your tablet to winegard when you have internet at your camper. This Winegard account is free, so when your tablet is connected to the internet, you can run JayCommand from anywhere that your phone has data. Only a few devices can be paired, so if you exceed that number (4?) you must unpair all and start again (see link above for instruction guide) otherwise Bluetooth will be flakey. I have Android Auto on my phone so JayCommand on my phone sometimes is flakey when my truck is running... (Android Auto won't shut down until the truck is off and it doesn't always play well with JayCommand).
Overall, everything works but the requirements to make it seemless requires semi-perfect alignment of the stars.
If you describe some specific issues, I may have more specific tips to help.

Thanks a lot. Our next trip is in two weeks and I'll look into this before we head out.

I have had same issue since day one. BMPro had an update recently that they claimed would fix problem. Well, it didn't. TPM system isn't that reliable either. Half the time I can't get some tires to connect to system, even after multiple battery changes. I also just recently replaced the battery in my tablet.Not a fan of the JayCommand system.
