Below is a list of devices grouped by category and type. "Devices" are consumer electronics that are controlled by iRule.
Devices are added to iRule Builder almost daily, so this is list is not always up to date. If after reviewing the list of devices you can't find what you're looking for, or you're still uncertain whether a device is controllable, please contact iRule support for assistance.
Global Cache gateways are network devices which translate codes from iRule to infrared (IR) or RS-232 serial.
There are few differences to be aware of between the Global Cache gateways. Some models of Global Cache gateway support more simultaneous client connections than others.
Note 1: Many gateways support the use of dual emitters or IR blasters, allowing the user to control more devices with the same number of IR ports.
Note 2: iRule can control other gateways, but they are not officially supported and will require specific knowledge of the gateway.
Note 3: iTach gateways support up to four (4) or eight (8) simultaneous client connections (depending on model), while the GC-100 series gateways support only one (1) connection at a time. If your controlled devices may require concurrent connections (two people may try to control a device at the same time, i.e. whole-house audio or lighting), you must use an iTach instead of a GC-100.

RS-232 serial is common in higher-end consumer electronics and prevalent in professional commercial equipment. Major advantages to RS-232 serial are that it is very reliable and responsive, and in many cases, offers feedback about the device's status.
Many IP network-enabled devices can be controlled by iRule directly, with no additional hardware necessary (other than the network, of course). Some examples of network-enabled devices that can be controlled are many AV receivers, some media players, and a few TVs or Blu-ray players. Please note that not all devices which are network-enabled are also capable of being controlled by iRule (or any other third-party control system).
