CEDIA 2014 - Global Cache Introduces Control Tower Online IR Database

Global Cache's IR Database in the Cloud First of its Kind Available Now

Jacksonville, OR, and Denver, CO USA - September 11, 2014 - (CEDIAExpo 2014 Booth#880) Global Cache, the leading independent manufacturer of WiFi and network enabling connectivity products for the control and automation market, announced today the availability of Control Tower, the industry's first secure IR database in the cloud. The online database is available for integrators/installers, users, and Global Cache partners.

Global Cache's products connect almost any electrical device to a WiFi and/or IP network so it can be controlled, automated, and maintained by network-based software. The company offers other connectivity products and capabilities, including IR learning, HTTP support, and sensors that can be connected to a network. Global Cache devices are designed to work with other standards based products.

Control Tower has over 138,000 IR codes and utilizes an accurate and easily searched database structure and implementation. The database is maintained on a daily basis, with emphasis on avoiding redundancy and complexity.

The company offers the Control Tower IR database at no charge to dealers, installers, and users for download of up to 5 code sets per day. Global Cache Strategic Alliance, VAR, and OEM partners are provided full access of the database and API for simple integration with their software and systems driving Global Cache hardware.

"It's incredible that close to 60 partners have already signed with us to integrate and use the new Control Tower database for their IR solutions," said Robin Ford, VP of Business Development at Global Cache. "The product solves an important problem for anyone using infrared driven equipment, and because of the cloud-based nature of the product, it is extremely easy to search and download needed code sets. Our goal was never to have more IR codes than anyone else, but to have the best maintained database, with as few redundancies as possible, and easy access."

The Control Tower IR Database can be accessed at http://irdb.globalcache.com.
