Global Caché’s award-winning iTach Flex WiFi or network enables electrical devices instantly. By using a Flex IP or WiFi with any of our Flex Link cables (serial, IR, relay, and sensor), the Flex puts previ- ously unconnected devices onto a network so they can be controlled and automated. In addition, the Flex supports HTTP for web browser control from anywhere on the network.
The iTach Flex provides powerful, inexpensive, and simple connectivity to almost any electrical device so it can be controlled and automated using an app on a smartphone, tablet, or any other user interface. Historically, automation and control products have been complex and expensive, used almost exclusively by the very wealthy. That changes with the easy availability of control apps on the iTunes Store and Android Marketplace, and the ability to connect almost any device in the home to a WiFi or wired net- work using the iTach Flex.
The extremely small footprint, slightly larger than a pack of gum, is ideally suited for trans- parent coupling and seamless integration to any device in homes or businesses. The Flex’s unique hardware form, with a WiFi or network connection to a 3.5mm jack that supports almost any type of protocol translation cable, offers the ability to bridge products and systems in a way never available before.
Entertainment systems are the most common household devices to be controlled, and most of those devices respond to IR codes, the infrared commands sent by your typical remote con- trol. The Flex includes built-in IR learning, and Control Tower, our IR database in the cloud provides easy access to over 150,000 tested IR codes. The ease-of-use and versatility of the cloud-based system ensures compatibility and
expandability of any system.
Once an entertainment system is under control, the next step may be the shades, or the lighting, the sprinklers, or the Jacuzzi. The iTach Flex, with its scalable and simple to use design, will connect them all at the site of the equipment, with no need for a complex rack mounted sys- tem. The iTach Flex introduces a new concept of distributed automation and control, with end-points that enhance and connect standalone devices, allowing for them to be accessed and controlled by the control system of your choice, including apps on smartphones and tablets.
