    Easy to set up and send codes to. The Global Cache utilities make it simple to locate on the network, and to learn the codes from your IR remotes.
    Roger -- switzerland, Europe   2/25/2012
    I use this product with an Irule on my Ipad. PoE works w/o any problems! I have now 2 PoE units at home and I'm so happy with it!
    PER -- akersberga, XX   10/14/2011
    works like a charm , and together with a product from it´s possible to control NEXA switches over radio.
    PHILLIP -- madrid, XX   5/30/2011
    Great, Simple to set-up. Now controlling my lounge.
    ANDREW -- paget, XX   4/4/2011
    Great little product that works as advertised. A little complex for an end-user, but ideal for systems integrators and others with advanced technical knowledge. Probably OK for end users if paired with other software that supports it.
    DOOGLEDB -- frisco, TX   10/14/2010
    Works great!! Placed this little device behind my very thin LED TV in my bedroom using POE to minimize space. I also have one of these (non POE) in my Den to control the Audio Video Receiver that provides sound to my Bedroom. TIVO provides the TV channels from the Den but it accepts network commands via its RJ45 connection to control. I am now in full control of my AV in the bedroom using iRule on my iPad.
    JAYME -- sammamish, WA   2/17/2010
    This is a great product that's very easy to install and implement. The instructions make it very easy to install. Power on the unit, discover the default wireless SSID, connect to the unit, configure for your environment (your local SSID, IP Address), reboot and away you go. Very easy to install.
