iRemoteControl OEMs Global Cache iTach Flex to drive down pricing for single room iPad/iPhone control at $225 USD
London, England and Jacksonville, OR, USA - March 24, 2015 - Global Cache, the leading independent manufacturer of IP, WiFi, and HTTP enabling connectivity products for the control and automation market, and iRemoteControl, creator of smart home apps that require no custom programming, announced today a new partnership. In addition, iRemoteControl announced a one-stop, one room control solution available in the second quarter of 2015 available for just $225 USD (Â£150 UK) including IR control hardware. Trade discounts are also available for custom installers and distributors.
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, such as iRemoteControl. The company offers other connectivity products and capabilities, including IR learning and the award-winning Control Tower IR database, available in the cloud.
iRemoteControl is a software company that uses a unique online form filling approach to configure iPads and iPhones for whole house control - within minutes rather than hours. In addition, the GUI that results uses "virtual remotes" drawn at HD Retina resolution, rendering lifelike remotes - even the remote's LED lights up when a button is pressed!
"In just under five minutes and with zero programming expertise you can configure iRemoteControl for a single room - or a five bedroom house in under thirty minutes. Within forty-eight hours of the simple Configurator Form being e-mailed to iRemoteControl's HQ, you will receive your custom code to download to your designated iPad or iPhone. Just connect the iTach Flex devices into your network, attach the IR emitters onto the relevant equipment and confirm device IP addresses. You can be up and controlling in under ten minutes per room," states Paul Kasler, CEO of iRemoteControl.
"iRemoteControl, with their excellent line up of instantly usable 'virtual remotes' is a great partner for us, and an excellent addition that will significantly benefit our growing custom installer channel," said Robin Ford, Global Cache VP of Business Development. "iRemoteControl provides the next generation of 'fill and control' smart home configuration technology."
