Budapest, Hungary, August 08, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Sometimes we find ourselves looking for the remotes for what seems like hours on end. Having a bunch of them: one for the TV in the living room, one for the A/C, one for the A/V Receiver and so on, and not being able to find them when they're needed. The easiest solution would be to buy a 6th remote to replace the already bought 5 - just to be misplaced as easily as all the others? Really?
The iRBeacon is one, simple solution that will rid you of the cluster of remotes, and it is capable of much more.
The iRBeacon is the first step towards an intelligent home. It is a smart, elegant and tiny device which combines the infrared technology with the latest Bluetooth Low Energy (very energy efficient, more than a year's worth of working time with a single CR2032 coin battery), so the iRBeacon accompanied by the app (iOS, Android) can smart up any device and replace the remotes in just a few minutes.
The iRBeacon project currently runs on Indiegogo and it is very well underway. The project will definitely reach its goal and a small contribution can go a long way: for a limited time the team offers a free iRBeacon to everyone who refers at least two contributors to them.
The project can be found at http://igg.me/at/irb
Just imagine getting home, tired from a hard day at work, and as the user enters, their favorite radio starts playing or the TV is switching on for them to watch the news and unwind. Without even touching a single button. iRBeacon settings allow timing as well as how it will react to a user's presence.
Switching off the TV or turning off the radio when leaving home will never again be something to worry about, the iRBeacon can do that automatically.
Using the latest technology, the list of IoT networks and smart hubs the iRBeacon can cooperate with expands constantly - allowing the users the freedom to control their devices from anywhere in the world. The iRBeacon's mesh networking capabilities help overcoming any distance so the smarter home has never been closer.
Running on iOS and Android, the iRBeacon apps are capable of so much more than an everyday remote controller. The apps are compatible with iPhone 4s & later, iPad 3rd Generation & later, and Android 4.3 & later devices with Bluetooth 4.0.
