iRidium mobile was founded in 2006. We began with creating projects of home automation and automation of home theatres.
When iPhone appeared on the market, we had a striking idea to use it for controlling home automation. And that is how it all began.
The first employee of the company was Marat Gilyazetdinov.
He had a 18-year experience in programming and he had realized a great number of software projects.
He got interested in automaton systems and studied AMX, Modbus systems. It was his brilliant idea to create iRidium project.
1. to control from any device;
2. to control any equipment;
3. to provide best possible capabilities for creating interfaces.
All throughout the year we enthusiastically developed the software package. New programmers came to the company.
In November 2009 we first presented our software package at the High Tech Building exhibition in Moscow.
It went down exceptionally well! Integrators were thrilled with an opportunity to control home automation from iPhone.
A lot of manufacturers of equipment for home automation were wildly enthusiastic about the project.
In February 2010 our company released the first version of the software package, named iRidium HD, on the Apple AppStore.
It excited the automation market. The release of iPad in April 2010 geared up the development of the company. The demand for software solutions of this kind began to grow.
The company grew fast. More programmers and engineers came to our team.
The team was joined by Anton Kamaev, a project manager, who had a 5-year experience in sales and promotion.
We began to present iRidium software package at major international exhibitions and acquired a number of strategic partners.
In November we released iRidium V2.0, that had been developed for 3 years. The goals we set to ourselves were achieved:
1. iRidium works on ANY operation system;
2. Ridium Driver Development Kit allows to create drivers to control ANY equipment;
3. The updated iRidium GUI Editor allows to create a modern smart interface.
Our company is entering a new exiting stage of development: we are telling the world about our new product with it amazing capabilities!
On September, 1 new version iRidium V2.1 was released. The new version had more drivers: HDL-BUS Pro, Helvar, EPSNET, Duotecno, Domintell (beta), My Home (beta). New features appeared:
New ready interfaces appeared in iRidium.
A number of JavaSript modules, drivers to control a certain type of equipment, were created.
