When you’re Audio and video components are in a cabinet or rack with solid doors, how do you remote control them?
One way is to open the doors before each use, and close the doors after. What a pain, and not very attractive!
Another way involves very understanding wife and or submissive kids.
We have an easier way. Our IR distribution system delivers commands from your existing IR remote to A/V components in a cabinet or rack
IR system Includes -
IR receiver and 2 dual IR emitters that deliver commands to 4 components, expandable up to 12 devices.
IR-Repeater kits are made up of a receiver that picks up the signal from your remote, and emitters for sending the signals to the components.
In between them they plug into a small hideaway connection hub, and a power supply.
The IR Repeater kit is Easy to Install -
1. Place the Receiver in your desired location. You can attach it to the location with the included double sided tape if you wish.
2. Place the IR emitters on devices that you want to control. (Place them on the IR window on the devices) by peeling and sticking the emitters on the device.
3. Plug the target into the IR receiver jack on the hidden IR repeater controller and plug the IR emitters into locations 1 and 2 of the controller
4. Mount the hidden controller in cabinet with the electronics and plug it in you are done.
Additional information -
Keep your home theater devices behind closed cabinet or closet doors, even when they're in use. The All-in-One IR System makes sure that all of your A/V components receive the commands sent from your existing IR remote controls, even without line-of-sight access. A mini receiver can be placed near your television or mounted somewhere around your equipment cabinet, and this system will deliver your commands to up to 12 individual home theater components.
It’s easy –
Professional Look and feel –
You don't need to leave cabinet doors open when you're enjoying your home theater. By setting up the Hidden IR™ infrared signal distribution system in your entertainment center, you'll be able to control up to 12 A/V devices secured in closed cabinets or closets using your existing IR remote control.
This home theater accessory is so easy to use; it sets up in minutes and requires no drilling or rewiring. Your friends will think you had a pro install it!
You can link your Hidden IR system to your A/V system in minutes. Just place the Hidden IR repeater box in your equipment cabinet, affix one of the four included IR emitters to each A/V device's IR window, and mount the IR receiver where it can receive your IR remote control's transmitted signals. Place the IR receiver on a shelf or on an exposed part of the cabinet; its black color helps it hide beneath equipment of back in the shadows. It does need to be in a direct line of sight from your normal seating position when you'll be using your remote. Use your A/V remote control as usual: The Hidden IR will transmit your command to the correct home theater component, so you'll be able to use your entertainment devices as usual, even though they'll be hidden from view.
The 4 emitters included can control many different A/V devices. They're made of material that's transparent to IR light, so commands can still pass directly to individual components if desired. You may stick the emitter over the IR emitter on each component, or place on the shelf in front of the component if you prefer - they're powerful enough to get the signal to the component. The receiver and each emitter has a 10' cord so you can easily run emitters to different components. A 120 volt AC to 12 volt DC adapter is included.
Working with Plasma and LCD Displays
Although not designed to reject interference from plasma or LCD TVs, you can work around this by installing the IR receiver eye in an area that isn't exposed directly to the TV screen - at the back of a bookshelf, on the wall below or next to the TV - somewhere the eye can't "see" the TV image.
Just make sure you still have a direct line of sight from the eye to your normal seating position. The Hidden IR System can be used in a room with a plasma TV or LCD display by installing the IR receiver in an area where it can't "see" the TV image - behind the TV or in a bookcase, for example.
Included with the system is -
IR Receiver ( 2 inches by 1/2 Inch )
