  • What's Included
  • The Global Cache GC-100 Home Network Adapter connects diverse and previously unconnected devices and appliances in a network-based home. Using many commonly needed controls and sensor inputs in one box, the GC-100 provides an easy way for controlling real-world devices, reducing the time and complexity of an installation by eliminating piggybacked components and multiple power supplies. By simply sending commands over the network, your audio/visual equipment is turned to the proper volume by infrared (IR), shades are lowered with relays, and your favorite DVD is selected through serial communications; and all started with the push of a button. As a result of using open standards (for example, TCP/IP), any networked device, such as your PC, can send and retrieve GC-100 data. With the GC-100, a variety of devices can be connected to control and monitor the environment over a network or even the Internet. The GC-100 Home Network Adapter also comes available with support for six expansion modules.

    The GC-100 is designed to work with many of the popular home control software packages. These packages contain software drivers needed for the proper operation of the GC-100, as well as, an easy-to-use interface for configuring your automated living environment. It is required that such a package be employed when using the GC-100 product family. Getting started is simple. All it requires is connecting power, configuring the unit, and attaching cables. The included setup guide provides a step-by-step method to get you up and running quickly and easily with a discussion of each connector's pin out, web page configuration, and specification.

    These are great control units for home theater geeks. Pity it does not come with at least one IR blaster cable.

    I utilized the gateway with iRule to control my home theater. Set up was very easy using the free Global Cache software tools on their website. The whole installation took less than 1 hour. Using a dedicated IP address everything works consistently every time.

    Works well except that the unit will not accept an IP address from a DHCP server even if set to do so. The ip address must be set manually.

    Using this with Irule, ipad control is seriously slick. Crestron like functionality without a Crestron budget or consultants.

    Installation was simple and this is a very well constructed piece of hardware. It's actually smaller than I thought which was a pleasant surprise.

    I've also needed to make use of tech support after locking myself out and their help was superb.

    Really cool device. Programming is very easy if you are familiar with sockets and serial communication. The unit is very solid with a fairly small footprint. I am a fan for life!
