iRedTouch - the universal "Universal Remote"

PLEASE NOTE: This application requires additional hardware

Are you tired of having several remotes lying around in your living room? Do you want to use your iPhone or iPod touch instead? This and much more is possible with iRedTouch - in conjunction with an infrared LAN or WiFi module by IRTrans GmbH (www.irtrans.com) or a GC-100 or iTach module by Global Caché (www.globalcache.com).

Please visit iRedTouch website for details.

A version especially for the iPad (iRedTouch HD) is also available on the App Store!


- Use your fingers to flip through the list of your remotes on the iPhone or iPod touch

- Tap on the photo of your remote - and the IR module transmits the respective IR signal

- Hold down your finger - and the IR signals will be sent repeatedly, if appropriate

- Infrared codes of all common devices (HiFi/TV/DVD/...) can be taught to iRedTouch

- Control your Philips HUE lighting system, too!

- No PC or Mac needs to be running at all!

- All this is even possible via mobile networks! The magic is called "VPN".


- Control all IR-capable devices in your household, from anywhere in your WLAN!

- Determine which remote or button will use which IR module all over your network


- All IRTrans modules LAN or WiFi, IR with up to 16 LEDs, RS232, contact closure, if available

- GC-100 (Global Caché), IR, RS232, contact closure

- iTach (Global Caché), IR, RS232, contact closure, depending on model

- iTach Flex (Global Caché), IR, RS232, contact closure, with adapters


1. Make a photo of your remote, scan it, or even make a sketch of it

2. In iRedTouch choose the very photo as the touchable area of your new remote

3. Place the buttons on the screen, simply by tapping onto the photo

4. Teach the infrared signals to iRedTouch - a built-in assistant makes this easy

5. That's it!


iRedTouch can perform lots of "actions":

- Infrared-Code with IR modules, via external LEDs if available

- RS232 strings with certain modules

- Contact closures with certain modules


- Control your Music app ("iPod")

- Call URLs (aka web adresses), some devices understand that!

- Control Philips HUE Personal Wireless Lighting

- Jump to a different remote

- Create Macros from all these actions


- Control "iRed2" on the Mac - a free license is included with certain IRTrans modules

- Use IRTrans USB modules connected to your Mac, just from iRedTouch via iRed2

- Control your Mac, change speaker volume, send it to sleep, ...

- Control iTunes, let iRed2 announce the current track, jump to the next album, set ratings, etc.

- All this and much more from iRedTouch on your iPhone or iPod touch


- Control applications on your MacBook (Pro), e.g. a PowerPoint or Keynote presentation - via WLAN from your iPhone

- Control QuickTime Player or VLC, or whatever. iRed2 is very flexible and adjustable to your needs

What's New in Version 1.10

- iOS 8/9 Design, finally
- New: Accessibility, with support for Switch Control and Voiceover
- Much faster wakeup from sleep
- New Icon
- New: Kiosk mode: only one remote is accessible, see entry in Preferences app
- Bugfixes, of course, e.g. setting relay state

This version of iRedTouch is the first which features accessibility. It's a shame that I have not implemented this before. One customer gave me the important hint, thank you Peter!
iRedTouch should become a first class helper for your (home) automation needs, so please help me with your feedback by mail to improve iRedTouch.
For the details, visit "www.tinbert.com/iRedTouch", then look or search for 'accessibility'.

A once great app stuck in the past

Update: Back when apps were new, this was an amazing program. Today, there is no support for the retina display, ipad, multitasking, or fixes for bugs reported months and months ago. It is becoming increasingly hard to support this app as the rest of the app world improves.

If I were looking for an app today, I would not have picked this.

Researching competitors in this area, we have RedEye for $120 ($150 in sept/oct), a crestron or other custom build for massive cash, a dedicated universal remote for 100-200, and this. I went ahead and bought this app along with the IRTrans package which i think was about $160. Total cost just under $200, so in the higher end of the spectrum.

Now what you get for your cash is a fully customizable layout in a package that will work anywhere within wifi range of your theater. A huge difference for me is this custom layout. You can use any picture (and design your own if you want to with photoshop or even graph paper) to layout exactly the buttons you want, and remove all the buttons you hate. This is head and shoulders above almost all solutions out there since they are stuck with a hardware system. The closest dedicated remote is a newly launched Philips that uses a touch screen for multi-function buttons and to get rid of the keypad. It retails for $200, is still large and bulky, and completely unnecessary thanks to this iRedTouch/IRTrans combination in a package (iPod Touch) that will blow away any remote out there.

If it sounds like I work for the company, it's only because right now, nothing else comes close. There are still areas that can be worked on, for instance, swiping sideways to move between remotes, connecting to the IRTrans module in the background (after app launch) so you can access your remotes faster, enabling the wake on lan command built into the IRTrans module so you can wake sleeping macs on your network... but that would just be icing on the cake.
