Users can then access switch software with one or more switches - wirelessly! IntelliSwitch is compatible with Discover software, Intellitools software, and most self scanning software. With over 25 functional switch presets, IntelliSwitch is one of the most comprehensive switch interfaces on the market. Computer access has never been so easy - great products, simple choices. Plug the small IntelliSwitch receiver into any USB port on your computer and place the IntelliSwitch transmitter anywhere up to 20 feet away. You now have unrestricted and untethered wireless control of your computer with up to five switches. Are you in a classroom setting? No problem - up to five different students using separate transmitters can use the same computer (at different times) equipped with a single receiver. The two built-in switches make things even easier for teachers, parents, presenters, and trainers. IntelliSwitch is a radio frequency (RF) device, so it will work fine, even if there are physical barriers (such as a wheelchair) between the transmitter and receiver. A supplied USB cable allows you to also use IntelliSwitch when plugged directly into the computer.
