reYmote Universal Remote Control for Android and Global Caché iTach Transform Smartphones and Tablets into Powerful Remotes


Jacksonville, OR, USA — February 28, 2012 — Global Caché, the leading independent manufacturer of IP and WiFi connectivity products for the control and automation market, and geekazoid e.U., the creator of the reYmote Universal Remote Control software for Android, announced today they have entered into a strategic partnership. The agreement provides a platform for co-marketing and product compatibility. The Android application, reYmote, in combination with a Global Caché iTach IP2IR or WF2IR, transforms Android smartphones and tablets into powerful infrared remotes.

Global Caché’s products connect almost any electrical device throughout a home and business 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 Caché devices are designed to work with other standards based products.

geekazoid’s Android software, reYmote, available on the Android Market, is a powerful universal remote control software that allows you to control your networked devices using a  Global Caché iTach and your Android handheld. reYmote is highly customizable and allows the creation of virtually any remote control layout directly on the device itself. The project is highly community driven and constantly evolving. A free lite version of reYmote is available and sufficient for small setups.  Some of reYmote’s key features include:

  • Android device compatible
  • Supports Global Caché connectivity devices
  • No PC or server required for application – direct control between application and hardware appliance
  • Profiles – support for multiple personalized user configurations
  • Mutiple sub-category support for layered configurations
  • Application utilizes iTach built in learner to learn any remote – learn single buttons or entire remotes
  • Import from file option available for users to quickly copy between Android devices
  • Edit IR code directly on Android device for on the fly editing
  • Security settings for commercial applications – lock down/hide portions of the application using password protected profiles enabling safe public use
  • Favorites tab for quick device access across configurations
  • Free demo software to try available on the website
 

“The bulls-eye for control systems has always been getting rid of all the remotes off the coffee table and replacing them with one universal remote control,” said Robin Ford, Global Caché VP. “That’s what reYmote does, quickly and simply, using any Android device and our iTach IR devices, you’ve got everything you need to control your entertainment system from a smartphone and or tablet, with so many more features than a regular universal remote.”

“We were so excited when we discovered Global Caché hardware. It’s just what our customers need to connect their entertainment systems to WiFi and wired networks,” said Andreas Bretschneider of the geekazoid. “Global Caché hardware products are little problem solvers that our customers can use to implement their reYmote solution simply and easily. It really doesn’t get any easier.”
