“The iPhone brings a wealth of technology that can be applied well beyond native phone, email, and Internet connectivity. The Control It All Remote is an example of how MiCommand leverages this technology to, literally, extend its reach. Users report that Control It All is superior in both ease of use and functionality to high end remotes like Logitech Harmony remotes,” said MiCommand CEO Jeff Roane.
In developing the Control It All Remote, MiCommand focused on delivering innovation, ease-of-use, and power. The decision to use Bluetooth wireless technology was key as Bluetooth enables easy setup and a dongle-free design that doesn’t disturb the elegance of the iPhone by requiring plug-ins. The Transceiver is a standalone Bluetooth accessory that receives commands from the iPhone and generates infrared (IR) signals that control AV equipment.
MiCommand’s Eyes Free™ gesture technology leverages the power and elegance of touch screens letting users control it all without having to look at their iPhones.
