LAS VEGAS — Detroit-based iRule LLC was honored with the 2013 Consumers Electronics Association Mark of Excellence Award as the Control Product of the Year.
CEA announced the winners at the annual Consumers Electronics Show being held this week in Las Vegas.
“We’re delighted to receive this award and to be recognized for our team’s hard work and innovation” said Itai Ben-Gal, CEO of iRule. “What really sets iRule apart is the customization, flexibility, and value. We put the ‘custom’ back in ‘custom integration’, and our dealers can do it at a price that more customers can afford. Never before has such a customizable, flexible control solution been available to a such a wide audience.”
iRule integrators build custom remote controls “in the cloud.” The system requires no “coding,” yet offers deep integration with the most popular third-party audio/video, lighting, and automation products for the smart home.
iRule was founded by two A/V fans, Itai Ben-Gal and Victor Nemirovsky, when they were looking for an easier way to control a home theater system.
iRule is a cloud-based software solution coupled with simple hardware which controls any infra-red, RS-232 or Ethernet-enabled audio/video equipment, making it compatible with nearly any system or combination of components. 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, making it the last remote you’ll ever need.
