    Xpander Mode
    Xpander ModeIn Xpander mode, the IR-XP2 connects to the AUX port of the STARGATE, STARGATE-Lite. IR emitters (one included) plug into the emitter output jacks on the rear panel of the IR-XP2. The controller can then be programmed to instruct the IR-XP2 to issue any combination of IR commands in response to any input condition(s) such as time, received X-10, IR, telephone, analog or digital inputs, ASCII, etc. For example: If the time is 7:30pm Monday-Friday and the security system is armed (no one is home) then turn on the DVR, select channel 7 and record Jeopardy.

    Serial Mode
    In Serial mode, the IR-XP2 connects directly to a serial (RS-232) port. It can be operated from any computer or device capable of sending/receiving ASCII commands via RS-232. This provides an open platform for incorporating custom software and adding IR control to any system that supports ASCII.
