RedEye Keeps Getting Better
Our mission is to redefine the universal remote control. One of the most revolutionary things about RedEye is that we continue to improve it with regular software releases. After all, when did your old wand remote ever get an update?
RedEye API for more integration
In March we released v2.12.0, which allows you to use simple URLs to launch activities, send commands, update state variables and retrieve information from your RedEye. This makes it easy to create your own web-based interfaces to RedEye, or to control RedEye from other automation systems. Using IP control (introduced in v2.11.0), you can even control one RedEye from another.
Channel Guide Comes to Russia
RedEye is taking off in Russia, and that has led to strong demand for a local Russian channel guide. We had to make a quick update to the iOS app, but we are proud to announce that as of v2.12.1 (currently pending iTunes approval), RedEye features a comprehensive channel guide for our Russian customers. We know the channel guide is part of what makes RedEye great, so if we do not yet have a channel guide in your country, don’t fret — we continue to look for ways to expand coverage.
