Roomie Remote Software for iDevices Integrates with Global Caché Hardware
Indianapolis, IN and Jacksonville, OR, – September 8, 2011 – (CEDIA Booth #3962) Global Caché, the leading independent manufacturer of IP and WiFi connectivity products for the control and automation market, and Cyphersoft, creators of Roomie Remote control software for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch, announced today they have signed a Value Added Reseller (VAR) agreement. The agreement allows Cyphersoft to include Global Caché hardware as part of their control solution. Combining Global Caché connectivity hardware with Roomie Remote software running on an iDevice, creates a powerful universal remote control with many extended features.
Global Caché’s products connect almost any electrical device throughout a home and business to a WiFi and IP network so it can be controlled, automated, and maintained by network-based software. The company offers other connectivity products and capabilities, including IR learning, IR receivers, and sensors, that can be connected to a network. Global Caché devices are designed to work with other standards based products.
Cyphersoft’s Roomie Remote home theater and automation software for iOS is now available on the App Store. Roomie is a universal remote providing extensive device support in an easy to use interface. Configuration of advanced home theater control systems can be performed entirely on an iOS device with no need for external websites or desktop apps all at a very affordable price.
“From the first day we started Global Caché almost 10 years ago,” said Robin Ford, Global Caché VP, “our customers have been asking how to get all those remotes off the coffee table. Finally, with the advent of iPhone, iPad, and Android interfaces, there’s an easy and affordable way to control the devices in your environment. Using Roomie Remote control software and Global Caché hardware, what we were just hoping for 10 years ago, is now a reality. We’re delighted to forge this new partnership.”
“Roomie was designed from the ground up to break the barriers holding back home theater control and automation,” said Will Price, Founder and CEO of Cyphersoft. “With Roomie’s support for Global Caché hardware, we are able to provide a fully integrated solution that that does not require line of sight to components, a classic problem in this area, and one that fits perfectly in customer home theaters with no batteries and no dongles to plug into a user’s iOS device. Combined with Roomie’s extensive library of supported devices, integrated TV listings, and easy to use interface, we’re providing the first truly next generation universal remote solution in decades.”
