For all devices you want to control with your Global Caché device, you have to register a Global Caché IR Device.
Select the device type „Global Caché IR Device“ and the Global Caché iTach Gateway, which you have configured before. The configuration of the gateway is described in chapter Global Caché iTach Gateway. You have to enter a unique ID, which you will use again while creating your layout pages.
The attribute iTach Module is allways 1 for sending infrared sequences for the devices Flex and iTach. For the GC-100 devices, which can have more than one infrared modules, you have to select which one you want to Access.
The attribute iTach port selects the output port for the infrared Signal. Depending on transmitter option you can control up to 3 ports (or transmitters).
The Parameter IR Protocol is optional. It is be used to generate infrared sequences.
Now you have to register the infrared codes on the tab „Commands“.
Add your commands by pressing the button . Enter a unique ID for the command code.
Now you have the possibility to add the control sequence as a Philips Pronto Code (ccf) or as a function definition (device, subdevice and function). But the easiest way is to learn the infread sequence by sending it with your remote control.
To learn a infrared sequence press on the green button beside the Learn field. Now you have to send the desired infrared sequence from your remote control to the Global Cacheé device (opening at the upper side of the device). You have to keep the remote control as near as possible to the device). If the signal could be recognized, „OK“ will be displayed in the Learn field.
With the Analyze Tool you can analyze the infrared sequence code. Press the Analyze button to start the tool. If the infrared sequence code be decoded the concerning function definition will be displayed. You have the possibility to store the sequence directly in this form after. The IR Protocol also will be set on the tab Device in this case. This transformation of sequence is optional. The command could also be send with directly with the learnd infrared sequence.
Parameter „Toggle“ is used for some devices while sending the same control sequences multiple. This information will be included in the control sequence each second time. So the target device can recognize, that the sequence was sent again.
With the send button you can transmit the control sequence to your target device for testing purpose.
With a Global Caché infrared device you have also a unlimited access to Global Caché Control Tower. This is an online database with more than 200,000 infrared control codes. After selektion of your device you want to control, the control codes will be downloaded directly to your device configuration in IRControl. You can read more about this database in the chapter Control Tower or directly on the web page Control Tower.
