iRule Releases Manager for Dealers, Installers

July 26, 2012
iRule 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, the company says.

“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 AV enthusiasts Itai Ben-Gal and Nemirovsky when they were looking for an easier way to control a home theater system. It offers a solution to accommodate several components and eliminate the clutter caused by multiple remotes with limited uses, according to the company.

iRule is a cloud-based software solution coupled with simple hardware which controls any infra-red (IR), RS-232, or Ethernet-enabled audio/video gear, as well as lights, heating/cooling, shades, security systems, garage doors, sprinklers and others. 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.
