IRCommand2 is IR (infrared) and X10 remote control software for the PC that enables you to control virtually any device that comes with a remote control. You can create device 'panels', each of which represent one of your devices or a virtual device. Then add command buttons to a device by dragging re-sizable buttons from the button kit. Train the new command buttons using a remote control, or program them with macro sequences. New setup features make device creation fast and easy.
IRCommand2 can also listen for and respond to IR and X10 commands from remote controls. Simply program a 'trigger' into a command button using a remote control and that command button will then execute whenever IRCommand2 receives that trigger. X10 triggers can wake the PC from standby.
IRCommand2 is expandable via its COM+ interface. This interface allows external programs, including VB and VBA, to link to command buttons you have created in order to control devices.
The unregistered download runs in a 'demo' mode that has some functional and capacity limitations, but that allows you to thoroughly evaluate the software before buying. By registering, you receive a key and ID that removes limitations. The full registration supports a virtually unlimited number of device panels and buttons. A lite registration option is also available at significantly lower cost.
IRCommand2 currently works with the Actisys IR200L, Tira2, MyBlaster, USB-UIRT, and ADS IR Blaster, IguanaWorks, and Global Cache iTach IR control heads; the CM11A/HD11A, CM15A, CM19A, and Insteon 2414U interfaces for X10 control; and the Snapstream Firefly RF remote. Written in C++, IRCommand2 is efficient, does not put a strain on your PC's resources, and works well with most other programs. Visit our web site for more information.
