Features & Functionality
One Touch Automation
One touch automation allows for predetermined tasks to be performed automatically for you.
For example, imagine you’d like to watch a movie. We know that your entertainment area includes a television console, surround sound audio system, BluRay player, powered window coverings and an installed interior lighting system. With a single touch of a button, your television will turn on and change to the appropriate input for your BluRay player. The surround system will turn on and recognize that a BluRay movie is about to be played. Your window coverings will draw, blocking out any outside light and your interior lights will dim.
One Touch Favorites
The iCommand system was designed to remove any unnecessary steps sometimes required to find your favorite settings, automated tasks or common actions you make when using your system. This results in an optimized user experience. You become a symphonic conductor, directing the devices around you with a simple press of a button, elevating your overall enjoyment.
“Motions” are a feature available on many of today’s mobile devices. They translate your physical movement into actions used by an installed application. The iCommand system utilizes this technology to make it easier for you to do certain tasks. For example, imagine you’d like your television volume raised. You’d simply tilt your tablet up or down to either raise or lower the volume.
Gestures allow for certain functionality based on actions made when touching a mobile device screen. Swiping and two finger movements would be considered gestures. The iCommand system responds instantly to your gestures, allowing you to adjust your window coverings or lower the lights with a simple swipe of your touch.
Updating your system couldn't be easier. We keep up with the latest operating systems and devices, so you don't have to worry when updating your smart devices. Adding a new compontent or replacing an exisiting one? - No problem, we can quickly porgram your system for you and all you need to do is press the "Sync" button to grab the necessacrey changes from the cloud.
The iCommand app is a free download. This enables easy access to your automation system, available to be installed on as many devices as you’d like. In face, up to 8 iCommand controllers can be operated at once. This allows for you to do what you need to do, while allowing a friend or family member the opportunity to control a separate area of the living space.
Designed From The Ground Up
Our iCommand app was built to solve the frustrations that our team felt by using other so called “solutions.” We needed something that was powerful yet designed for simplicity, so we built it.
We Followed A Few Core Principals:
It's easy these days to simply throw something together using digital shoestrings and bubblegum. Stream Surfer has taken the time and development necessary to satisfy even the most demanding end user situations. Employing high standards of quality control and solid coding practices, iCommand has proven to enrich the users experience dramatically.
For example, our system understands the complex nature of intermingling physical hardware devices that may have not been designed to necessarily work together. By handling all of the heavy lifting behind the scenes, the end user is left with a beautifully sculptured interface that simplifies the entire process. Only quality back end hardware and software all this to be a possibility.
In addition, the interface is beautiful. Glass buttons look like they've been hand crafted by a glassblowing master and wood grains almost feel smooth after hours of fine sanding.
Our system had to be intuitive. All of the obvious, and often times not so obvious connections have been made on your behalf. For us, when you select an option within iCommand, other actions that should also take place automatically.
By looking at our intuitive interface design, it becomes quickly apparent how to use the system. Selecting the power button on an installed satellite system turns on the television and surround sound audio system. It happens automatically because it just makes since. If you'd like your lights dimmed and window coverings drawn when you hit that power button, it's easily done.
We have designed our system to be extremely user friendly. It is often too easy to complicate the usability of an interface through complicated design. We've worked hard analyzing the placement of each button so when the app is used for the first time, the user just gets is. It must make simple sense.
Now lets look at this same example after the iCommand system has been installed. You sit down to watch a movie. You have available to you a list of movies that are stored on your personal media server, though you can utilize disk movies as well. Browsing the catalog, you find something interesting and make your selection. With a simple press of a button on your smartphone or tablet, our “One-Touch Automation” algorithm knows to turn on all of the appropriate devices like your television and surround sound audio system. Next iCommand dims the lights to evoke the appropriate mood and lowers your window coverings to block out the sun.
Programming As A Service
Most of the “behind the scenes” programming requires extensive knowledge of advanced automation systems and years of training. We have completed all of this, so you don’t have to.
Behind the scenes, advanced home, marine, and RV digital automation is actually extremely complicated. Stream Surfer eliminates the need for our customers to learn and implement all of the programming needed to tie everything together. Our team of coding experts does all of the heavy lifting for you, so you can sit back and enjoy.

Support & Notifications
As the world begins to transition their surroundings from static environments into dynamic, interconnected extensions of themselves, users will need access to an advanced and reliable customer care solution. Our Elite Customer Care service is a cornerstone of our business model. This aspect is so important to us, we are building a user interface from the ground up that will set the standard by which all others follow.
Think of our ECC user interface like your own personal mission control, one that plugs into an advanced network of specified features designed to tackle specific issues. In the tabs above, we will outline these features in more detail, but I'd briefly define them below.
Air-Support - Once Air-Support is activated, our technicians are granted remote and secure access to the entire entertainment system, allowing us to quickly identify and fix the issue.
Notifications – In the event that the manufacturer has important safety or upgrade information concerning your boat, R/V or residence, notifications is the conduit by which they deliver their message to you.
As stated in the previous tab, Air-Support allows one of our trained technicians the ability to diagnose and / or fix any issues remotely. This saves valuable time and money as many issues that arise can be handled without a technician to physically visit your location.
For example. Lets imagine that your television fails to respond to the “power” command. With various possible issues, it's simple for our staff to simply log into your system and begin the diagnosis process. All you must do is contact our Elite Customer Care center through one of our support channels and authorized the access.
Once activated, it's as though the technician is standing right next to you, taking on all of the challenges that may be causing the issue. This gets you up and running faster and cheaper, so you can get on with your day. Air-Support in and of itself is more extensive than any simple universal remote service can offer.
Many of our customers have the iCommand system installed on a boat or R/V. Being extremely mobile, it is sometimes difficult to receive all of the manufacturer information that you may find important. Notifications allow you to receive this information no matter where you are in the world, as long as you are able to connect to the Internet.
Notifications are also very useful for essential reminders about system care. iCommand ties into your boat or R/V's monitoring technology to better enable your awareness of scheduled or emergency maintenance. Once the iCommand system in installed, your environment becomes an intelligent network of nodes working for you around the clock.
Simplicity in Design
Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.- Steve Jobs
