RVM1 vs. RVM2 vs. RVM3 Monitor Stations

What is the difference between RVM1, RVM2 and RVM3 versions of the RV Whisper Monitor Station?

RVM1 Monitor Station

RVM2 & RVM3 Monitor Station


Since RV Whisper first started selling Monitor Stations, there have been 3 versions sold to customers:

  • RVM1 – Larger system with quad core processor
  • RVM2 – Smaller physical system with single core processor
  • RVM3 – Smaller physical system (same size and shape as RVM2) with quad core processor

All models of the RV Whisper Monitor Station run the same software, the only difference is in how fast they run the software.  Users will notice the RVM3 is the fastest system, with the RVM1 being just a bit slower.  The RVM2 is the slowest system of the 3.

Now what do we mean by “faster” or “slower”?   All models can reliably support 25+ bluetooth sensors, the difference is in the response time when a page is displayed or updated.  The RVM3 will display a page the fastest, typically about one second faster than an RVM1, and typically about 3 seconds faster than on RVM2. Of course, if your network is really slow, they will all seem slow, but with a fast internet connection the speed is noticeably faster on an RVM3 compared to an RVM2.

RV Whisper first sold RVM1 systems in 2017 and then switched to RVM2 systems in August 2019.   In August, 2022 we switched to RVM3 Monitor Stations.

All versions are still supported by RV Whisper and can be securely accessed over the RV Whisper Gateway.
