"Total Control for the Android operating system is right on target," said Global Cache VP, Robin Ford. "We're seeing a tremendous uptick in orders to connect various standalone devices to a network so that they can be controlled via a smartphone or tablet device. At first it was primarily iPhones, but now we're seeing a surge in requests for Android devices, as well. We're so pleased to be working with the folks at Intelligent Designs."
Robert Conlin, founder and CEO of Intelligent Designs Group added, "By integrating with Global Cache hardware our Android software can directly control infrared devices through blasters or emitters. Our customers can use the blaster for direct line-of-sight control of multiple infrared devices, or emitters for non line-of-sight control or control of devices in areas where the Global Cache hardware is not located. We've implemented support for importing infrared code by file or using the infrared learners to learn from physical remote controls. We're very happy with the combined solution."
