    DANIEL -- saint louis, MO   8/8/2014
    Delivered as advertised, works as advertised. This is part of a more complex remote control system and installation depends on knowledge of how that system works. Lost "one star" because Global Cache has switched to new type of infrared emitter, and it is inferior to the original.

    Carrying out - no problems! Only the encashment of 10% welcoming coupon to act up. An request per mail was not respond.
    HADI ABI -- DUBAI   3/9/2014
    superb works as expected, very robust
    Doc. Bill -- katy, TX USA   1/22/2014
    I bought an IP2IR device to use for a temporary home theater setup that is in the process of being replaced by a total home Crestron system. We needed something in the meantime and have an older receiver that is not internet ready all the devices connected to it are... DTV, DUNE, Blu Ray player. It took a total of 10 minutes to set it up and get it functioning using the tools on the website. What was not clear when I bought the device is if the IRLEARNER device was needed or if it was build it... no real dirction there so I bought the IR-Learner. After getting the IR strings from the remote using the learner, it was easy to test it with the ITEST program... which worked flawlessly. As others have pointed out... if your not a code savvy person, this device is probably not for you. But if you can put together a web page or some VB code... you will have fun with this device.

    This wired version of the iTach works great and can be used for so many different applications. Who would have thought that a simple little device like this would open up a world of home and business automation possibilities? Great product. Never had a problem with them. The wifi version is great too but is a little trickier to set up.
    JAMES -- mount holly, NJ   9/10/2013
    I use these all the time and order them from SmartHome. Great service and price
    FRANK -- redmond, WA   9/2/2013
    this is an excellent device I am using with roomie remote for my iPad. I am using it with my Samsung tv and comcast cable set top box. I can now turn the tv on and off as well as the STB. Roomie found the IP2IR ip address and did most of the work in setting it up.
    HARLEIGH -- auckland, NZ   8/25/2013
    great service
    KEVIN -- delray beach, FL   7/21/2013
    Very difficult to set up. Confusing instructions and more programming than one expects to see in consumer products today.
    JOSH -- rowland heights, CA   6/9/2013
    Couldn't be happier with the product or customer service.
    OSCAR -- sao paulo, Brazil   6/3/2013
    Working perfectly, very tiny and light. Easy to install. I plugged its power cable/USB on my router's USB port and worked!
    NZ134326 -- portland, OR   5/29/2013
    Documentation not the best, it was stated that the blaster works on port 3, but it took a while to work out that I had connect to it's web server to enable blaster on port 3. Works great now.
    OSCAR SANGUINO/ -- tomball, TX   4/30/2013
    Got it to control a Full House HDMI Matrix distribution with iRule, Still a working project, but so far this has been flawless. It is the customization that takes a while, and the more options you have, the more you want to do!
    AARON -- streetsboro, OH   3/30/2013
    Very powerful for development of custom applications. API well-documented.
    Harrison -- Guelph   3/20/2013
    Great product, works as expected with roomie app, am planning on buying more! shipped fast!
    VINCENZO -- sirnach, Switzerland   2/4/2013
    Delivered to Swiss in less than 5 days. Great!!
    TIM -- friendswood, TX   2/3/2013
    Used the IP2IR with an iPad/iPhone app called Roomie. Works great. Setup was a snap. Just plugged it into my home network, attached the IR remote cables to my TV and other equipment, Roomie found it on the network and I told Roomie what devices were attached to which ports, and it worked great. No problems at all. Its been working for about 1 month.
