How to start work with iRidium

I am not an integrator. Can I use iRidium?

If you have an automation system (Smart Home), the Multiroom system, Home Theater, etc., you can contact your integrator and request iRidium-based remote control from them.

It is not easier to do it yourself because iRidium is a software product for professional integrators of automation and Audio/Video systems.

Is iRidium a software solution?

Yes, it is. You do not need any server or hardware to work with iRidium.

You just install the software package on your PC and create a visualization project. The client application installed on your iOS, Android, Windows or Mac will enable launch of your visualization project on any supported OS.

The client application connects to the controlled equipment directly, without any intermediaries (excluding your router providing Wi-Fi connection or communication with your equipment via Ethernet).

You do not need to have a web-server or PC to work with iRidium. Internet connection is not required.

How to start

Decide what equipment you want to control with iRidium.
Install the software components and learn instructions about iRidium for your equipment.
Video-lessons and on-line webinars if they are already available for your equipment will help you to speed up the process.

While creating the project refer to the information about iRidium components and licensing.

What are requirements to PC where iRidium will be running on?

You can find information about requirements to PC and control panels in corresponding section of Wiki.

Do applications for PC work on Windows only?

Yes, they do.
The setup for PC can be installed only on Windows 7/8 OS (or launch with the help of a virtual machine, Windows Emulator).
Do not activate iRidium licenses for virtual machines: they generate new HWID at each launch and your licenses will not work.
