Jupiter, Florida – July 11th, 2016 – Jupiter electronic engineer Ron Mocogni has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign at Kickstarter seeking support for his new innovative infrared (IR) learning remote the iRMimic. Built into a set-top box, the state of the art remote can sense when your TV turns on (or off) and then sends IR commands that automatically turn on all the related components like Blu-ray players, cable boxes, satellite receivers, etc.
The president of a leading Florida electrical company Electrical Solutions, Ron Mocogni is duly supported in his futuristic endeavor by his business partners Steve Keough & Luis Travieso.
“Your satellite or cable remote can control your TV and other related entertainment components but it’s never perfect. The remote has to be continuously pointed at your TV for any function & it cannot sense whether your TV or your cable box has actually turned on or not. It also can’t send complex macros or timed events like you would find in high end programmable remotes. Such situations inspired us to come up with the iRMimic that enables one to use the existing satellite or cable remote & also automatically handle other issues – like syncing the devices & switching to the correct TV input as the TV turns on. But such a high profile project demands robust financial backing and hence the crowdfunding campaign. Your support would be much appreciated,” stated Ron while announcing the crowdfunding campaign.
Ron and his team have already come up with successful prototypes & are finalizing the hardware part now. The campaign is geared up to gather around $75,000 and the funds collected would be utilized to purchase needed components in bulk to reduce the pricing.
There are 4 buttons on the front of the iRMimic that allows users to easily switch TV inputs or send out infrared commands. It’s perfect for seniors who have troubles working their TVs and also for the younger crowd who look for an easy way to switch between gaming systems, media players, cable and satellite boxes. The remote can even be wired to alarm, lighting or automation system.
“I have a 2-button wireless switch on my wall. As I come into the room, I press the top button which turns on the TV, sets it to the right input, turns on all my components & even tunes to my favorite music station. The second button is programmed to switch inputs to my Roku player & startup Netflix,” Ron added in.
Speaking further, he also mentioned about attractive perks for the donators. Pledges reaching $119, would be rewarded with the exclusive iRMimic set-top learning remote, accompanied by power adaptor, RCA cable, USB cable and IR emitters.
