Home automation installers can use the Global Caché IR Learner to learn the full IR code spectrum (30KHz to 500KHz) using a PC. Once the codes are stored, you can use them on a networked computer or online to control any component that accepts IR commands. The IR Code Learner is perfect for use with Global Caché's line of iTach products.

  • Learns the full spectrum of IR codes
  • Captures IR commands from remote controls
  • Plugs into the serial port on a PC
  • Software converts and stores codes

The IR Code Learner plugs into your PC at the serial port, or into a USB port with a USB to Serial Cable (sold separately). Power is supplied to the learner by the RTS line of the serial port. The device is used with the included software on CD, which allows you to store IR commands on the computer.

Once the IR Learner is setup with the software, you can point an IR remote control at the learner and push buttons to begin capturing IR codes. Codes will be displayed, converted into different formats, and automatically copied into the Windows clipboard. You can paste the codes into any Windows application to quickly create and updates a database and/or spreadsheet.
