In this tutorial we give detailed instructions how to configure MyURemote to control IR devices:
versie2 FAQ1

  • Step 1 – Preparations.

    Which devices do you want to control with MyURemote? Thousands Devices are Supported: our compatibility lists are constantly being updated with new devices. Check the tables to see if your device is listed. If your device is not in our database yet you can add it yourself.

    • If all your devices support IP control.: You don’t need a controller! Goto Step 3.
    • If your smart device has an internal IR blaster (IRDA), the ‘IR blaster controller’ is automatically added to your configuration and ready to use.
    • If one device does not support IP control or you need a IR / serial controller: (The controller handles the communication between your LAN and your devices/domotics.)
      • If one device only supports Infra-Red or Serial(RS232) you need a iTach controller.
      • If you need unlimited (IR and Serial and Contact-closure) control you best buy one GC100 controller.


  • Step 2 – Define your controllers (only if you need IR or Serial control).

    • Open the configuration panel, click on “Settings”. MyURemote discovers your network looking for your devices and controllers.

  • Step 3 – Define your devices.

    • Click on “Devices”, “Add Device”-icon.
    • If your device is not in our database: don’t worry, you can add it yourself.
    • Enter the IP address or assign your device to a port on one of your extenders.

  • Step 4 – Define your ZONEs (= rooms , or subdevision for special functionalities, or a remote for domotics,…).

    • Create a ZONE:
      • Assign a number
      • Enter a label.
      • Choose layout
      • For layout “Audio/Video”, first assign your amplifier!!!

  • Assign your devices to input buttons on your remote control.
    • Choose your television
    • Assign your amplifier input devices

  • first aid with Communication and Networks

    • How to check communication with my controller? Enter Global Caché IP :How can I find the IP adress of my Global Caché controller: download this executable and run it on any PC in your network.
    • Disconnect the supply of the controller and reconnect after one minuit.
    • Check if your controller and your smart device are connected to the same network and subnet (range).
    • When a GC100 has network connection the LINK Led must light up. The Led of an iTach must flicker every second.
    • It is recommended that you configure every device and controller with a static IP.
    • It is recommended that if you have connection issues you change the router over to 802.11b only mode.


  • first aid with Configuration

    • How can I find the IP adress of my Global Caché controller: download this executable and run it on any PC in your network.
    • Factory default settings for a GC-100 can be reset by electrically connecting pins 7 and 2 on the first serial connector (closest to the power connector) as you apply power to the GC-100. As you look directly at the serial connector, pin 2 is the second pin from the left in the top row, and pin 7 is the second pin from the left in the bottom row. The simplest way to connect these is to insert a flat bladed screwdriver between the two pins and rotate until both pins are touching the screwdriver. DO NOT bend pins, as this may cause irreparable damage to your unit. At this time, connect the power supply and IR indicator 1 will blink on momentarily, all the IR indicator lights will blink on momentarily, then all lights will go off. This indicates that your GC-100 has been set to its original factory defaults, including Configuration Lock, which defaults to disabled. Depending upon the IR ports’ individual states, the indicator light sequence may not occur as stated. If so, repeat the process a second time to assure that factory defaults have been restored.
    • To restore the factory settings of an itach use a paperclip and push it in the reset hole.(note that to access a wireless iTach after factory reset you have to connect to the iTach in your networklist, then open your browser and enter

    I have developed my universal remote using iRule running on a standard size iPad. I am looking for s suitable alternative as iRule as you are probably aware will be unavailable for updates in a year.

    Q1: can I develope my pages and command buttons, macros etc., on my computer (windows as in iRule) and then sync my iPad to the MyURemote cloud file?

    Q2: if not, where does the setup take place? On the iPad itself?

    Q3: if I want to build a customized system from scratch can I do that or am I limited to a activity based (like watch tv) process? I already have a working model in iRule that I would like to base the development around and not have to reinvent the process again.

    I have a fairly high end a Home Theater system where I use macros, IR control, IP control based around a GC IP to IR interface.

    THANKS, Don

      hi Don,

      MyURemote has an online configuration panel. After editing your setup you can sync your ipad/iphone by clicking the home button (below the remote interface).
      It is also possible to edit your configuration with ipad or iphone (ionic platform).

      It is possible to create a remote interface from scratch but as the standard configuration has so many advanced functionalities, macro’s and live feedback, I advise you to use the standard interface.

      Best regards,

      Verdegem Danny

    Comments: I have been using the Blumoo Universal Remote with External IR Blaster for 18 Months with great success. I absolutely love it, however due to the fact that there is no configurable Lanscape Mode Application available specifically for the iPad Pro other that using the iphone App in portrait mode and the due to the fact that they have unfortunately discontinued the product I am looking for a replacement that is more suitable to my needs. ( However I have gotten used to reading the Blumoo App sideways since there is no landscape mode available ). I just have a couple of questions.

    1. Will the MURemote app communicate with the Blumoo IR Blaster and if not what external device would I need and what is the price ?

    2. I want to configure a Master Entertainment screen for my iPad Pro in Landscape Mode that will let me control all of my devices ( TV, DVD, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Spectrum/Time Warner Enhanced DVR, Older Pioneer SX-253 R Receiver, etc. Is this possible with MyURemote?

    Thank You

    Comments: What an excellent approach you have chosen in developing your MyURemote project.

    I have spent a few hours looking through your documentation and have a few questions and observations.

    1. You are sitting on something big with MyURemote. Almost all your competitors have gone: (a) 100% Cloud based and/or (b) closed environment. This has conseqences: (i) if the internet is down, remote system is down. (ii) multi-handheld device scaling and reconfiguration is painful. (iii) extensibility is poor. (iv) user generated extensions are difficult. (v) connectivity to other hub systems is generally poor. Your choice of a socket enabled, js based, html soln avoids all these issues! In my opinion, you should really push a community development github or similar site built on your core. iRule and others are not in the same league of extensibility.

    2. In my use case, I use HomeSeer as the “hub” to manage the state of all my devices (Over 20 AC units, 13 TV’s, 150+ ZWave devices, Receivers, Pool System and so forth). But homeseer has a rubbish UI and also doesn’t support all my devices. So, I am writing my own MessageQ based ip server/client engine and various device managers that can talk to special devices like Air Conditioning Units — and pass status to Homeseer. I need to decide on a GUI foundation to control everything. Your app looks like the ticket! At it’s simplest, I need 2-way socket based communication from my own custom MyURemote pages, to my own ipserver/client object.
    i.e. MyURemote receives a message “TV, ID=6262, Power, On” and knows to: (1) change the Power Icon to green. (2) Enable other tv related buttons.
    Similarly, MyURemote would send (onButtonClick) “TV, ID=6262, Power, “Off” and my server would process the command, send it to the TV and when the TV Responded, send the new status to MyURemote.

    I presume this is easily doable with your system?
    Sorry for the huge email!

      hi Suresh,

      currently it is possible to use macro’s (sequence of commands), but you can only activate the macro with an on_click event.

      MyURemote relies on web pages, but the web pages are cached. This means that you have to load your web page once. Next time, when the web page would not be available (e.g. you’re connected to the internal network, but not to the external network), the web page is loaded from the cache.
      If you would clear the cache, you will of course loose the cached web page as well.

      here you can download the free MyURemote for windows msi:

      here you find the most basic script for a remote for an android device with built-in IR blaster:
      these are the files needed:

    I cant make myuremote send ir commands to de receiver (rx-a800 yamaha). I set it as the receiver for a room, it sends comands to directv or de tv, but not to de the receiver. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S6, the buitin ir blaster.

      Hi Julio, there must be something wrong with configuration. Please mail your MyURemote account settings to so I can check.

    Comments: How do I create a custom screen with large buttons for my Father, who has vision problems?
    He will need just the basic functions:
    * Power (Macro for stereo, TV, Xfinity box)
    * Volume up/down
    * Channel up/down
    * Mute
    * Guide (this might have to launch a 2nd page to keep the 1st page uncluttered)
    * Xfinity Program Guide
    * Page up/down
    * Line up/down
    * Enter
    * Exit
    * Numeric keypad for channels

    Will this work with the Bose V10?

    • Danny Verdegem (MyURemote) June 12, 2014 at 8:31 am #

      Yes. MyURemote supports also Bose lifestyle V10.
