Air Command App for Android Smart Phones

Firestone Industrial Products Company

December 12, 2012 - Products

Firestone Industrial Products Company, LLC introduces an Air Command Android app that will allow users to remotely adjust the amount of air in their vehicle's Firestone air helper springs by turning their smart phone into the controller.

The new app works with Firestone's Android Air Command Kit that, like existing Air Command Kits, is designed to provide an instant air source to their line of suspension solutions, delivering convenient adjustability of the air helper springs with the push of a button.

To use, truck owners can purchase the Android Air Command Kit, which comes with an updated electronic control unit (ECU) that is specifically designed to work with Android applications. Then all they have to do is download the Air Command app to control the air.

Firestone's Air-Rite Air Control Systems allow users to adjust the ride of their air suspension products for various load and road conditions. The Air Command app lets the smart phone control the amount of air in the air helper springs from up to 25 feet away, letting drivers visually inspect a vehicle's ride height while it is loaded. In addition, the system's ECU is sealed to protect it from environmental factors like rain and dust, so it can be mounted outside the vehicle without having to draw wires into the cab.

Firestone recommends its no-drill Air Accessory Mounting Kit (part #2529), sold separately, to conveniently mount the ECU and air compressor.

Firestone offers a wide variety of air control solutions to fit users' needs. The Air Command app works with an Air-Rite ECU and either the Light Duty air compressor (up to 120 psi), Standard Duty air compressor (up to 130 psi) or Heavy Duty air compressor (up to 150 psi). These products will be available in early 2013.

The Air Command Android app can be downloaded from the Android marketplace. Firestone said it plans to also offer an iPhone app in 2013.
