Las Vegas, NV - Detroit based iRule, LLC was honored with the 2013 coveted Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) Mark of Excellence Award as the "Control Product of the Year"!


CEA announced the winners at the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

"We're delighted to receive this award and to be recognized for our team's hard work and innovation," said Itai Ben-Gal, CEO of iRule. "What really sets iRule apart is the customization, flexibility, and value. We put the 'custom' back in 'custom integration,' and our dealers can do it at a price that more customers can afford. Never before has such a customizable, flexible control solution been available to a such a wide audience."

iRule integrators build custom remote controls "in the cloud." The system requires no "coding," yet offers deep integration with the most popular third-party audio/video, lighting, and automation products for the smart home.

The company accepted the award at the CEA Mark of Excellence Awards Ceremony on January 8th at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
