DETROIT — IRule, the cloud-based remote control app for iOS and Android devices, has released iRule Manager, geared to assist professional dealers by simplifying the process of installing, modifying, organizing and selling iRule licenses to end users.
Created in response to requests from professional dealers, iRule Manager includes all the features needed to create customer licenses, make changes in iRule Builder to the remote interface, and allows access by multiple users and company technicians. Changes accounts are logged instantly, resulting in increased efficiency, communication, and customer service.
“As our dealers continue to install iRule in homes and businesses across the world, many were clamoring for a better way to keep their accounts organized and quickly make changes,” said CTO Victor Nemirovsky. “IRule Manager does just that, giving dealers more freedom to manage customer accounts and provide faster, better customer service.”
IRule was created by audio-visual enthusiasts Itai Ben-Gal and Nemirovsky when they were looking for an easier way to control a home theater system. It accommodates several components and eliminates the clutter caused by multiple remotes with limited uses.
IRule is cloud-based software coupled with simple hardware which controls any infrared, RS-232, or Ethernet-enabled audio or video gear, as well as lights, heating, cooling, shades, security systems, garage doors, sprinklers and others, making it compatible with nearly any system or combination of components. A fully customizable interface allows users to simplify controls, upload their own images and personalize menus to their preferences. IRule is also easily updated to control additional components or to migrate to the latest versions of smartphones and tablets, making it the last remote you’ll ever need.
IRule gateway package hardware is available at www.iRuleAtHome.com. The company has sold thousands of licenses in more than 45 countries via word-of-mouth and online “buzz” among early adopters, home theater professionals, and online forums.
