Denver, CO and Bingen, WA, USA – September 12, 2019 – (CEDIA Expo Booth 3457) CIWare Labs is making its public debut today at CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado. Exhibiting in booth 3457 in Innovation Alley, the team is showcasing its Inprem Studio software platform, scheduled for general release in Q1 of 2020. Studio is a suite of software tools built on Inprem Server, a control/automation back-end designed for professional developers and integrators who want to create specialized IoT control and automation applications.
In advance of general product availability to custom integrators early next year, CIWare Labs will be supporting OEM applications for manufacturers and Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). “We are excited to provide a powerful backend control server to ambitious companies who want to create their own unique user and programmatic interfaces” says Stephen Rogers, founder and CEO of CIWare Labs. “Our extensive REST API (referred to as “IREST”) makes the entire range of Inprem RunTime and DevTime functionality available to licensees, accelerating their time to market while at the same time giving them extensive flexibility and control.” CIWare Labs is currently interested in speaking with both hardware and software manufacturers to explore opportunities to bring branded and white label product to market. Stephen Rogers goes on to say “We aim to accelerate the adoption of Home Intranets – manufacturers are experienced with intranets in their own companies, and as such we look forward to working with them to introduce more end users to the power and practicality of combining data, automation and control into a powerful single network inside the home.”
As an example of partnering with hardware manufacturers, the Inprem Studio/Server will fully support the Global Caché product lines of Flex, iTach and Global Connect network adapters and HDMI switchers at first release. Protocols supported will be IR, REST, RS-232, and relay/contact closure. “CIWare Labs shares Global Cache’s commitment to open systems and advancing the use of IP in control and automation” says Robin Ford, co-founder of IoT pioneer Global Caché. “We are pleased that CIWare Labs recognized early on that the Global Caché product lines would be a powerful hardware platform with which to integrate. The combination of Global Caché network adaptors and Inprem Studio/Server creates new opportunities for Intranet web application control and automation solutions.” Global Caché and CIWare Labs have recently announced their joint work on Inprem Server’s new LAIRtm feature, a specialized IR remote technology that enables any IR remote to be used as a control device to execute commands in a control/automation context according to programming done by a custom integrator or developer. Robin Ford says “The new LAIR feature CIWare Labs is offering on Global Cachè products is amazing and I know our integrators are going to absolutely love this new ability to control their system from any zone using a regular IR remote. The opportunity this ability opens up for dealers and installers is incredible!”
