After testing the first prototype, the VoiceIR has been next to my bed ever since!  The voice control quality is impressive, I've even been able to command it successfully from all the way across the room with the TV on! - Mark Felling, President

VoiceIR means Independence, Security, Entertainment, & Communications using only your voice for Complete Environmental Control! Superior voice control, do-it-yourself simplicity & ease-of-use, with greater reliability over much more expensive alternatives. Learns from your original remote, simply talking you through the process eliminating the need to find quickly outdated codes. Add-on options are available to control lights, an assistance request chime, power adjustable beds, landline speakerphone, thermostat, powered door and window openers, a fan or anything else that can be plugged into the wall, anything that can be controlled by an ability switch, and much more. 

The VoiceIR Voice Controller supports up to 120 voice commands, each command can be a macro sequence of up to 10 button pushes such as "Up 10" for navigating the guide or "play movie" that turns on multiple devices, so it is all of the inputs, pauses for 30 seconds while your Blu-ray boots up, and finally presses play. The commands are organized into 4 keyword-command groups for ease-of-use, reducing the number of commands that must be remembered across multiple devices with similar buttons and supporting 1 to 4 different users.

Technical Details
  • 120 voice commands split in 4 'voice command groups' each with its own magic keyword, allows versatility for one to four users!
  • 1 user at home with 120 voice commands (or could share 30 with a family member)
  • 2 roommates such as in a rehab facility could share with 60 commands each
  • An occupational therapist could work with up to 4 clients at a time on multiple separate occasions
  • Excellent voice-recognition quality - commands are recorded in your own voice so any language or even otherwise very difficult to understand, slurred speech is not a problem!
  • Intelligently Learns Infrared Signals from any remote you have.  No need to try infrared codes and all devices even yet to be dreamed up will be supported.
  • Mix and cascade signals from different remotes to create Macros sequences of up to 10 individual IR signals per voice command.  
  • For example: the command "Play Movie" could dim the lights, turn on the TV, turn on the DVD player, turn on the stereo, set the stereo to DVD surround sound, and finally start the movie playing.
  • Delay Insertion between Signals - allows you to pace your macro for varying equipment that may take a few seconds to start up or perform other operations
  • Omni-Directional Infrared Emission - powerful infrared emits in a circular pattern covering the entire room
  • Auto Mute - temporarily mutes the sound allowing your voice command be easily recognized without raising your voice
  • Dual Power Supply - AC adaptor included allowing for voice activation any time or use 4 AA batteries for portability anywhere (times out after 10 minutes to conserve battery power)
  • Convenient Handheld Extender Remote provides optional single button manual activation of VoiceIR instead of using the magic keywords plus manual operation of volume and channel browsing for dexterous family and friends.

Customer Testimonials (more)

Steve Freier, San Mateo, California
Assistive Technology Coordinator, Center for Independence of the Disabled
"I just wanted to let you know that we have successfully installed and programed a VoiceIR [System's Voice Controller] unit for my client George Dill who is a quad. Even though there is a lot of room noise produced by his bed and other mediucal equipment, it works well enough that he can control his HDTV, TIVO and sound system using his voice. His voice is very weak, so this is a miracle of sorts."
Ruth Ann Rahal, Greeley, Colorado
"Now that I've gotten some things working with the Voice IR it's already given me so much freedom and I'm very happy to be able to control things on my own even if it's just the TV and stereo [adding control over bed, deadbolt, & door opener]. Thank you for making these available."

Lori Russell, Golden BC, Canada
[Lori is a High School Special Education Adaptive Technology Professional]
"Just wanted to let you know that I set up M.G.'s VoiceIR QuickStart Package today, and it works like a charm!!!  Very very easy to program, easy to change commands, great for him (being blind) because he can tell if it's recognized his command.  What I was also happy about was that his voice recognition was the same no matter what position he is in in bed.  We got all the TV commands programmed, and they work beautifully for him.  He's thrilled with the independence this affords him.  Next week we will do the stereo and satellite radio, as well as his assistance call chime system.  Thanks again.  It's a wonderful system for someone who is blind and paralyzed -- he can finally have a bit of independence, which is hard to come by in his situation!"

Mr. Robin D. Walls, Brunswick, Maine
"The VoiceIR Infrared Voice Controller has been a great addition to making me more independent.  Before the VoiceIR, I had to keep calling on my wife to change the TV channel or volume, which became rather annoying after a short period of time.  I also have theVocalize! Cell Phone Complete Voice Control System, and at times the TV would be to loud to answer my phone, now I can turn it down before answering the phone.  The Vocalize bed mic makes things even better to control the phone.  

I am now able to watch TV when I'm alone; my wife works full time so I am alone a lot.  I have started out slow with the VoiceIR to get use to it, and can't wait for hot weather to use it on my air conditioner.  I'm planning to put my stereo in my bedroom along with a DVD player.  The tube that's close to my mouth is for me to get water and to hold the bed microphone that goes to my wheelchair cell phone system."

Cele Donahue (Mom), Hyattsville, Maryland
"The VoiceIR device has given my son, Tommy, back some of the much needed control over his life that he had lost. In addition, this has uplifted his spirits and moral and improved his interactions with the nursing staff at his long-term facility home. He is able to do things without their help. This, of course, increases his independence thus decreasing his complete dependence on them.

We were able to utilize a multi-step macro which enables him to turn on & off several devices with just one command (TV, cable, DVD, and surround sound). We, also, use one for Volume control so one command can increase the volume in intervals of three not one.  My son's quality of life continues to increase daily. Thanks, again for all of your help as well."
