ALIRC enables you to control your PC via most remote controls that you daily use. Such as, the remote you use for your TV, VCR, DVD, Stereo System, etc. ALIRC is remote control independent.

ALIRC is able to learn the buttons of the remote control you want to use. Furthermore, you have the privilege of defining what actions are taken when a specific button is pressed. Furthermore, ALIRC makes it possible for you to control your audio mixer, emulate mouse activities, emulate your keyboard, run applications, run VBScripts, shutdown your Pc and manipulate windows found on your desktop.

In addition, the OSD have a built-in timer that you can set to shutdown, logoff or restart your computer.
