Automate Common Devices Over A Network

This unit is the same as the GC-100-18 with a built-in rack mount.

Most home electronic devices – such as TVs, stereos, and security alarms – can't communicate over networks. Global Caché's cost effective and easy-to-use GC-100 network adapters are designed to solve this problem by creating a network to control the most commonly used devices, each easily managed and accessed via built-in software.

The GC-100 Network Adapter connects common electronic devices using a series of sensors that can work, interrupt, or be polled by another network device. This mix-and-match design includes infrared (IR), serial and relay communications (including sensor inputs) that provide control of diverse systems such as entertainment, security, lighting, and irrigation.

Control Options

  • Serial Controlled Devices: TV, AV, HVAC, Security
  • Relay Controlled Devices: Switch Controlled On/Off, Contact Closure, Lights, Curtain, Pool, Irrigation
  • IR Controlled Devices: 30KHz – 500KHz, Audio, Video, DVD
  • Sensor Input: Video Signal, Sensor, Power Presence, AC/DC, Contact Closure

  • Connects IR, Sony Control-S, RS232 serial, sensors, and relay contact closures to a network
  • 10 Base-T network port
  • Very small footprint
  • Only one power supply required for each enclosure
  • Embedded web server for easy configuration using a browser


  • Cost effective pricing saves you money
  • Modular design saves time and money on installation
  • Use one device rather than several from different vendors to save time and money on service
  • Ability to provide open network-based system for more satisfied customers
  • Lower cost and high reliability for more satisfied customers
  • Less inventory required due to modular mix and match design
  • One power supply avoids expense, clutter, and improves reliability
