Since we introduced the Global Cache iTach IR adapters last year, they've become one of our most successful products. So we've now introduced all the Global Cache range.
The full range includes IR adapters, Serial (RS232) and Relay adapters, all available with Wi-Fi or Ethernet interfaces to connect to your home's IP network.
And they can all be controlled from your smartphone, tablet and your home automation system controller.
All the choice in the world
Global Cache's full range includes IR adapters, Serial (RS232) and Relay adapters, all available with Wi-Fi or Ethernet interfaces to connect to your home's IP network - you can then control your appliances from your phone, tablet or home automation system controller.
These are perfect for controlling the majority of multimedia and AV equipment that uses IR remote controls, and it's not just multimedia, you can also use these for controlling AC units and anything that can be controlled by IR.
Some older equipment and even new projectors and screens use a Serial RS232 interface to control them. The iTach Serial adapters have this covered so you're in control of all your equipment at the touch of a button or iPhone screen!
Relay (Contact Closure)
Other equipment or lights need a simple relay (contact) control to switch their power or trigger them into action - lights, garden gates, garage doors can all be used this way.
All the iTach adapters are available with Wi-Fi, so connecting to your home system is really easy, and wire-free!
You can also choose a wired (Ethernet) option if you have a hardwired network running around your home - there's also a Power over Ethernet (PoE) option so you don't even have to worry about a power supply!
The Global Cache iTach are single flavour adapters, but you want a device that control many things, take a look at the GC100 Controllers - these include IR, Serial and Relay control all in one unit, and the smallest is no larger than a pencil.
For the existing IR adapters (IP2IR and WF2IR) we've written guides on how to set them up and use them with the Z-Wave controllers. We'll do the same for the new products as soon as we can:
