The iTach Flex enables you to easily control any Infra-Red (IR) appliance via your home’s LAN network. Appliances such as TVs, DVD/Blu-Ray, Amplifiers can all be controlled from your Z-Wave network controller (via local LAN), and then control it from your Z-Wave controllers such as Fibaro HC3 or VERA.
The iTach Flex includes the unique ‘Global Port’, enabling you to choose which types of device the iTach Flex controls by selecting any of the Flex Link Cables:
- Flex Link IR Blaster – Blasts IR signals to all devices in 10m range
Note – the Flex Link cables are not included with the iTach Flex, you need to choose at least one Flex Link Cable when you order the iTach Flex.
FIBARO HC2 INTEGRATION
To enable the Fibaro Home Center to use the iTach devices, we need to create a Virtual Device. This Virtual Device sends the correct IR commands to the iTach to control the particular appliance and can be used from a browser, smartphone or tablet.
This guide below shows you how to:
- Create a Virtual Device in Fibaro Home Center
- Use IR Commands that the iTach has ‘learnt’ for a specific appliance
- Use the Virtual Device to control the appliance using IR commands via the iTach IR adapter
Make sure you have configured your iTach adapter and have used it to ‘learn’ the IR codes of the appliance you wish to control.
