Apps And Automation With Oyster Sat Tech At The NEC

By William Coleman

The world of technology is an ever changing one and the caravan world is moving along with it. As the world of on demand, automation and entertainment technology moves in leaps and bounds Oyster stay up to date and innovative to provide you with the easiest TV set up on the market.

When it comes to on board entertainment TV will always be king. Yes, there is streaming but the data does not go a long way, costs an absolute fortune and is only as good as the 3G/4G the area provides. When it comes to satellite connection you really do have to go out of your way for it not to work.

There are some that still feel that a satellite system can only work with a Sky Box with a subscription and is overly technical to use. This may have been true 15 years ago but the tech world has moved light years away from that.

With Oyster systems it really is all about ease of use and automation. You do not need to keep taking your Sky box out of the house, unless you really want to keep up with their specific programming which is very simple to do with an Oyster system. They have a one button system which means all you need to do is turn it on and the dish and box does the rest of the work for you.

In keeping up with things Oyster have now developed a brand new app which makes your on board TV needs even easier. The app will let you know when the system needs an update which it will organise for you, all you will need to do is connect the phone to the system via bluetooth while you sit on the sofa and relax.

Buying a van with an Oyster system will remove any long winded set up and now with the app that does the other half of the job for you it really does make for an easy and relaxing evening in the van.
