Essential Info

Take control of your electronic devices with Global Cache's iTach Flex, an incredibly small and powerful smart end-point that allows almost any electronic device to be controllable, accessed, monitored, and automated within a wired network as well as controlled via a mobile interface and third party application, such as a Tablet or Smartphone, as well as any type of personal computer. This multipurpose, smart device can adjust its functionality based upon the type of cable being used. Utilizing the built-in input jack, connect an IR emitter cable, blaster cable, serial cable, a three-way splitter cable for multi use, and supports almost any type of protocol translation cable while providing the ability to bridge products and systems.

Connecting a certain type of cable defines how the iTach Flex will function. For example, if an IR emitter cable is connected it will function as a networked IR emitter or if a serial cable is plugged in, the iTach Flex will function as a networked serial cable. In addition, the iTach Flex features a built-in IR learner, IR code storage, 4MBs of onboard storage, and also provides a free to use cloud-based service which can instantly provide necessary IR codes for all types of different manufacturers. The iTach Flex also features HTTP protocol and can be controlled from any web browser be it mobile or desktop based. This revolutionary device is ideal for controlling an entertainment system, window shades or blinds, lighting, sprinklers, a Jacuzzi, and much more.

    Haven't installed it yet; daughter borrowed the TV (a third set); will get to it in a couple of months, but if it performs like the other Global device I have, I will like it a lot.
