Global Cache Wins Mark of Excellence Award

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) TechHome Division Chooses Global Cache Control Tower

Jacksonville, OR, USA - January 21, 2015 - Global Cache, the leading independent manufacturer of WiFi and network enabling connectivity products for the control and automation markets, announced today they are the recipients of the Mark of Excellence (MoE) award which recognizes the best in custom integration and installed technology from manufacturers, distributors and systems integrators. The MoE award for Best Education or Support Program for Control Tower, the company's newly launched IR database, was presented to Global Cache at the Mark of Excellence Awards reception at the 2015 International CES®.

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, IR receivers, and sensors, that can be connected to a network. Global Cache devices are designed to work with other standards based products.

Control Tower, an industry-first online IR database, solves an ongoing problem in the custom install market as various products and services converge to provide complete solutions for control and automation in homes and businesses. A challenge for the installer is the integration of diverse products, along with their particular proprietary protocols, including IR code sets for their devices. Control Tower solves an important issue for installer/integrators that find themselves without critically needed IR codes and helps avoid expensive truck rolls and customer dissatisfaction when equipment is changed. Users, partners, and installers can easily download IR codes for new equipment and updates without the integrator being onsite.

Rusty Keller, Global Cache's Director of Marketing said, "Global Cache continues to play a leadership role with our products and services offered for the automation and control markets. We're proud of Control Tower, the first IR database in the cloud, and the product's ability to easily and simply provide a solution for our partners, dealers, installers, and users that have struggled with obtaining reliable IR codes for decades. We're grateful to have been recognized with the prestigious Mark of Excellence award from CEA."
