iRule lets you rule your house
DETROIT — iRule began six years ago when Itai Ben-Gal was dissatisfied with an iPhone app. The company now has about 25 employees, 20,000 customers and more than $1 million in revenues and sales. iRule is based in the M@dison Building in downtown Detroit and has a network of installers and online representatives in more than 60 countries.
The startup licenses software and additional hardware to homeowners and commercial enterprises. iRule turns mobile devices into an ultimate control system for everything in a home or office. TV, cable box, Blu Ray, security systems, lights, thermostats and so one can all be controlled from a single phone or tablet with the iRule app.
According to its website, iRule has grown from two geeks in a basement to a team of technology addicts and creatives building relationships with A/V dealers, enterprise clients and do-it-yourselfers to bring them the ultimate control solution. Its platform is an automation system and mobile application for use in both residential and commercial environments.
