Infrared IR Remote Control Extender / Repeater Kit
Are your devices hidden away in a cabinet / cupboard / behind the couch etc? Are you sick of getting up to use the remote? This IR Kit solves the problem! This IR Extender Kit is the perfect way to simplify the way in which you control your Home Entertainment system. Many of today's Home Theatre / Hi-Fi systems are set up with some of the equipment (DVD Player, Amplifier / Receiver etc) out of the way, eg: in a cupboard / cabinet, at the rear of the room, behind the couch, etc. The problem this causes is that if you want to control these devices with a remote control, you have to open the cupboard door, or point the remote control behind you, or something equally as annoying. This IR kit allows you to point all your remote controls forwards (eg: at the TV), and not worry about where each device is located.
- Place the Mini IR Receiver in front of where you sit (eg: near your TV)
- Place the IR emitter(s) over the IR receiver / sensor of your device(s)
- Plug the IR Receiver and the IR Emitter into the IR Connecting Block
- Plug the power adaptor into a mains power outlet and into the IR Connecting Block.
Then all you have to do is point your remote control forwards (at the IR Receiver), which will automatically send the signal through to your devices!
Note For Foxtel Users
Foxtel is notoriously hard to get to work with IR repeaters. This model unfortunately is NOT suitable. Please feel free to contact us if you would like to discuss Foxtel-compatible options.
How Many Devices?
This kit comes with a dual IR emitter, which allows you to control up to two devices. However, the connecting block included in this kit allows you to expand your system to control up to 12 devices (using dual emitters).
Length of Cable
The dual IR emitter (included) and the IR receiver (included) each have 3m of cable. If you need a longer length (for example if your equipment is in another room), you could use a 3.5mm extension cable. We stock these cables in a range of lengths.
- 1 x Dual IR Emitter (IR1002)
- 1 x Mini IR Receiver (IR1005)
- 1 x IR Connecting Block (IR1010)
- 1 x Power Supply 12V DC 200mA (IR1015)
Some remote controls now use Bluetooth instead of infrared. Please note that Bluetooth remotes are not compatible with this infrared extender system. This system only works with infrared remote controls. If you're unsure, please feel free to email or call our friendly experts.
