An OPEN network that does not lock you in.

STARSHIP™ is a Hybrid Open Network for RV’s and MARINE.

Hybrid Connectivity: At its core, the STARSHIP is a wireless network that supports wired CAN bus segments. This hybrid model ensures reliable connectivity by leveraging the strengths of each type of connection.

Wireless at it’s Core:  Technologies such as WiFi and 802.15.4 (Long Range Bluetooth) provide flexibility and broad coverage. CAN based wired connections link industry technologies such as NMEA in Marine, RVC in USA, J1939 in automotive into the wireless network. 

Open Network Architecture: STARSHIP uses compliant open standards and protocols from the Connectivity Standards Alliance. This openness facilitates easy integration of new devices, scalability of the network, and user-driven automation.  This Open Standard is supported by Apple, Google, Amazon, and Samsung. There are over 1,800 approved compatible devices making it highly adaptable for a wide range of devices and applications.

Designed for RV and Marine Environments: RVs and boats operate a significant number of devices on DC power using Lithium batteries. They also present unique challenges for connectivity, such as movement and vibration, limited space, and exposure to harsh elements. Users can also utilise digital switching to reduce loads based on information from a connected Victron Energy system.

Many Ways to Use STARship

  • Video Shows Dual Colour for RGBW LEDs

Safiery STAR-touch 5in or 10in Display:

  • We thought about using touch screens just for switching, but Smart Switches are the future. Instead, the 5in or 10in inch STAR-Touch display is used for a wider range of options: Multi-media, Sonos sound, daily weather, energy flows with Victron app.
  •  We add our compact modem which is also WiFi router so you can operate without the internet from the touch screen. The Touch Screen is Wireless and can be placed anywhere with 12V power supply. 

One App Does it ALL

  • Starship is designed to work seamlessly with Apple, Android,Amazon or Samsung. It can do this with or without the internet. A small hub needs to be added.
  • You can then switch devices and see their status from anywhere with internet or locally with no internet.
  • You can build your own automations on the smartphone.
  • Modes or button assignment are done easily with the smartphone app.  You can even turn on the rear van work lights from the vehicle console wirelessly.
  •  “Night Mode” all the lights can be off with the option of a well dimmed floor light in the ensuite if desired. “Travel Mode” all the lights off, water pumps off, hot water off, fridges running. Switch the aircon on so the van is chilled when you arrive after travelling. 

Link Directly with CARPLAY or Android Auto

  • Our Starship services analyse your energy usage every day and night and alerts you to energy limitations. Just set the number of days camping before you depart and STARship does the rest.
  •  Enjoy glamping and push the boundaries of the universe. Let us do the analysing for you. Its all done “in the stars” rather than the “cloud”.
  • Our Smartphone App is compatible with CARPLAY or ANDROID Auto to bring all the switching into the vehicle console wirelessly. Switch devices on and off from the vehicle or just check everything is off.
  • Switch any device on/off from your smartphone either at the RV with no internet or if there is internet from anywhere on line. See your fridge temperature, turn devices on/off from anywhere. With selected cameras, see the camera view from anywhere with internet or Starlink.

Use WiFi Linked Music on Same App

  •  Enjoy glamping with Music streaming. We recommend SONOS and the Spotify App. 
  • Forget about tuners and Fusion sound device. Stream directly from internet.  
  • The image shows the IKEA Sonos package at a price less than halk the lowest cost of  Sonos devices on line.

Switch 240V Devices

  •  No relay or complex installation is required, simply plug in the 240V 10A wireless controller into the GPO.
  • These devices can be included in the Modes control.
  • In Travel Mode: Switch off all 240V devices. Switch off Inverter Charger.
  • In Night Mode: switch off STARlink (it uses 75-85W per hour)

Two Types of Controllers

  •  Each one billet machines aluminium for heat dispersion.
  • NMEA interface on STAR-power.
  • STAR-power only 120x85 x 30mm
  • STAR-light 65x65x25mm

NMEA Cabling Kits For STARship

  •  Plug-n-play NMEA 5 pin connectors make it easy for DIY.
  • No need to understand CAN , just plug-n-play.
  • Backbone Included in EVERY Kit on-line
  • Special NMEA Cables to all STARship and Meteor products.

Fuseless Circuits.

  •  Easy to say, hard to do. As an added safety to the digital circuit control in software, most put an overall fuse on the power supply and recommend cable sizes greater than the fuse protection. (Garmin, CZone)
  • The problem is if the DIY uses a 1mm2 wire for a LED circuit and it short circuits, the wire can melt and catch fire.
  • We took a different route to current limits because there are in-rush currents, operating currents and short circuit currents.
  • Our design slices time to reduce the total amount of watts of energy. Target is less than 5W of energy.
  • When a short circuit occurs, power cuts in 80 millionths/second.
  • it is an incredible feat: 80/millionths using reliable German chips.

Simplicity is Complexity Resolved.

To achieve simplicity for users,  Apple, Google, Samsung and  Amazon decided to adopt a common standard. Yah-Hoo I hear you say. The result is easy for the user, but incredibly complex for the manufacturer.

Devices compliant with the standard will interact seamlessly regardless of brand.

  • Forget hubs and bridges,
  • Every Matter approved device goes through stringent 3rd party lab testing for approval. Once approved a unique QR code is published for each individual device which is pre-registered with the standards organization.
  • It is impossible to have poor quality copy cats.
  • Think of the devices you’re installing speaking different languages, but Matter bridges the gap, enabling communication and automation regardless of manufacturer.
  • This interoperability means consumers can mix and match devices, creating a truly customised network with devices that work in harmony with each other.
  • Matter works without the internet over local WiFi. Yet when the internet is available, it seamlessly connects. This makes it perfect for mobile applications.
  • There are over 1800 devices now, mainly appliances, that operate with Matter. This means just ONE app will operate thousands of devices and lights from your smartphone. You can arrange custom automation on your smartphone.
Safiery's STARship products are Over The Air Updatable with firmware.

At Safiery, we had to incorporate multiple protocols into STARship.

  • WiFi 6
  • 802.15.4 Wireless
  • Bluetooth 5.3
  • MATTER
  • Thread
  • NMEA
  • CAN J1939
