iTach and GC-100 Product Lines Officially Tested and Approved for Control4 Installations
Jacksonville, OR, USA - August 11, 2010 - Global Caché, a leading provider of WiFi and wired connectivity products, and Control4, a leader in IP -based home control systems, announced today certification of all Global Caché iTach and GC -100 products for Control4 installations. All Control4® Certified products must pass rigorous interoperability testing in Control4 labs. Control4® certification ensures compatibility and simple integration between Global Caché and Control4 products, further underlining the companies' commitments to the custom installation channel.
Global Caché's award -winning iTach Family of Products physically connect any IR, serial, and relay device to a WiFi or wired Ethernet network so the device can be accessed, monitored, automated, and controlled. The iTach products include onboard IR learning, IR emitters, an IR blaster, a Power over Ethernet (PoE) option, and support multiple simultaneous users. The award -winning GC -100 Network Adapters connect IR, serial, and relay devices to an Ethernet network using one box. Global Caché products support sensor input and are engineered to integrate easily in any control and automation environment.
Robin Ford, Global Caché VP of Business Development said, "We've been a Control4 partner for many years, but the formal certification steps it up to another level. Being part of a structured development and testing procedure, and being included in the release process is solid verification and assurance to our dealer/installer channel that our products are seamlessly compatible with Control4 products. That is a huge benefit to our customer base."
"Ensuring that partner products are thoroughly tested and highly interoperable with the Control4® platform is a key part of our partner program," said Jeff Dungan, Senior Vice President of Strategic Partner Development for Control4. "Control4 Certification brings confidence that our partners' products are easier to install and require fewer support calls. We're happy to welcome Global Caché products as the newest in the Control4® Certified line -up."
