With its first major software update this year, iRule has released iOS Version 3.0 of its cloud-based universal remote control system.
Version 3.0 offers more functionality and automation while simplifying the system for A/V enthusiasts and professional installers. An upgraded Android version is expected later this year.
“As interest in iRule continues to grow, we saw an opportunity to streamline many of the features while remaining true to our original goal of creating a fully customizable remote control system,” said iRule CTO, Victor Nemirovsky. “Adding Wizards and support for more lighting and automation systems will help users create remotes faster with better control of more devices in the home.”
Highlights of iRule iOS Version 3.0 include the iRule Builder Handset Wizard, designed to help new users quickly create custom remote layouts by selecting a theme, activities and devices. The Wizard will create the layout while still allowing users to tweak and fully customize their remote.
iRule iOS Version 3.0 offers Automation Modules for lights, HVAC systems and appliances with full feedback: Lutron RadioRA 2, HAI Omni, Universal Devices ISY, Mi Casa Verde Vera Z-Wave, and Radio Thermostat.
Leviton Z-Wave now supports HVAC control with full feedback via Leviton Vizia RF controller; Onkyo-Integra Module now supports multi-zone receivers.
