IR Remote Control Extender System
This handy little kit allows you to send remote control commands from one room to another, via regular CAT6 network cable.
The base kit has everything you need to control up to two devices from another room, including a 5-metre cable to connect the rooms. A full list of components is below and a range of add-ons are available (including longer cables up to 50 metres).
If you need a longer cable or if you want to control more than two devices, simply choose those add-ons from the drop-down selection boxes before clicking 'Add to Cart'. More info about add-ons below.
How Does It Work?
To set it up, position the IR Receiver near your TV (this is what you point your remote controls at) and position the IR Emitters so they're pointing at the other devices you wish to control (eg: amplifier, Blu-ray player). Then connect it all together with the CAT6 network cable in between, plug in the power and and you're good to go. Simply point your remote control at the IR Receiver and the signal will be relayed to the devices in the other room!
This system can be powered via a mains wall outlet with the included AC power adaptor. Alternatively, you can power the system by connecting it to the USB port on your TV with the included USB cable. Note that the USB-powered option requires your TV to be turned on before you can control devices in the other room.

Some remote controls now use Bluetooth instead of infrared. Please note that Bluetooth remotes are not compatible with this product. This product only works with infrared remote controls. If you're unsure, please feel free to email or call our friendly experts.
- CAT6 Cable up to 50 metres
- IR Extension Cable
- Dual IR Emitters
- Triple IR Emitters
- IR Splitter Cable
The base kit includes a 5-metre cable but you can easily upgrade to a longer length (up to 50 metres) if you need.
IR Extension Cable
Add an IR Extension Cable if you need a longer cable on your IR Receiver or IR Emitters.
Dual / Triple IR Emitters
The base kit includes a Dual IR Emitter for controlling two devices. If you need to control more devices, simply add more dual or triple emitters. Note that the base kit has three IR outputs at the IR Emitters end, which can each take a Dual IR Emitter or a Triple IR Emitter. If you need to control lots of devices, you can use IR Splitter Cables to expand those IR outputs.
IR Splitter Cable
If you want to control lots of devices, you might need to add IR Splitter Cables. Note that the base kit has three IR outputs at the IR Emitters end, which can each take a Dual IR Emitter or a Triple IR Emitter. An IR Splitter Cable allows you to plug two Dual IR Emitters or two Triple IR Emitters into one IR output, essentially doubling the number of devices you can control.
