How It Works


Step 1

Design Your Remote in iRule Builer

It’s hard to believe, but it’s actually easier than it sounds! iRule Builder is a website you use to create and edit your remote control’s interface. All you need is a computer with a web browser; there’s no software to download or install. Most of the work has been done for you, and a wizard walks you through the process of creating a remote. Tell iRule Builder what kind of handset you’ll use, what activities your remote will control, which devices are needed for those activities, and which device will control volume and inputs, and the wizard does most of the work for you. Once its finished, the drag-and-drop interface makes it easy to customize your remote control with your own buttons, images or even a unique interface for each user in your home.

Since iRule Builder is in the cloud, you can configure a remote from your home, office, or wherever it’s most convenient!

Step 2

Sync Your Remote

Download the iRule app to your mobile device from the App Store or Google Play. Enter your username and password and sync to download your custom user interface from the iRule Builder. Next, you’ll create gateways and assign devices to them so the iRule app knows how to connect to your devices. The Gateway Configurator will automatically find and create some gateways, and will help you create the rest.

Step 3

Rule Your Universe

That’s it! Use iRule to control all your gear, including TVs, surround systems, cable or satellite boxes—even lights, shades, or fireplaces! If it can be controlled, iRule can control it. Since iRule uses your Wi-Fi network, your equipment can be be behind closed doors, in a closet, or in a whole different room. Everybody in the house can have their own custom user interface, complete with favorite channels and only the equipment they want to control. Get iRule and Rule Your Universe!
