Essential Info

Bridging the gap between home automation and audio video components usually requires the purchase and advanced installation of expensive control system hardware and controllers. The EZUIRT Universal IR/INSTEON Transceiver # 5010H by Smartenit is an affordable plug-in solution that will allow communication between devices on an INSTEON and/or X10 network with audio video components. The EZUIRT recognizes the codes sent out via IR remote control and translates them into INSTEON commands. This allows you to control INSTEON-compatible devices (lighting, fans, appliances and HVAC) or scenes with the same remote used for your entertainment equipment (Television, CD player, DVD player and stereo). EZUIRT is also an IR sender, which will convert INSTEON and/or X10 commands to IR codes that your A/V equipment can readily understand. With the press of a single button from your INSTEON-compatible device, you can create a scene that will turn on your air conditioner, cable/satellite receiver, television, stereo, fireplace, and dim the lights.

While basic functions can be programmed manually, advanced functionality can be programmed with the EZSrve, central automation controller. If you already have a central automation controller or a software package for your INSTEON network that doesn't have the correct parameters to program the advanced functionality of this device, you can download the free Smartenit Utility Suite which works in conjunction with an INSTEON Powerlinc Modem (2412U, 2413U or 2413S). If you need PC-free operation for simple timers, the Smartenit Utility Suite also interfaces with the INSTEON Powerlinc Controller.


What's Included

  • Smartenit EZUIRT Universal IR/INSTEON Transceiver
  • Quick start guide
  • More Info

    The EZUIRT Universal IR/INSTEON Transceiver easily learns IR codes in any combination, and converts them into INSTEON commands. Supported IR codes include X10 IR codes, NEC IR codes, RC5 IR codes, Sony IR codes and X10 house IR codes. The unit has a built-in IR sensor and functions as an IR distribution hub with four jacks for up to eight emitters, not included.

    EZUIRT is installed simply by plugging the unit into an available outlet. Setup and programming is facilitated with the free configuration utility software, and a Quick start guide is also available. This program runs under MS-Windows and allows connection with a PLC, or EZSrve, allowing for verification of INSTEON EZUIRT communications, changes or additions to the codes received and commands sent, and the management of the INSTEON links database.

    As advertised

    Junk. Worked for a year now can't change or add. Too afraid to reset the device and lose what is working. Looking at an I-Trans device now. Save your $$$
    Roger -- enfield, CT   8/28/2010
    Be aware that this unit has a weak compared to other x10 only products output. I have tried other X10 transmitters in the same outlet that this is pluged into and they work fine, this unit fails to turn on many of the X10 devices in my home. This is the second unit that I have tried so it is unlikly that I have a bad unit.Also these units have a habbit of locking up and therefore blocking other X10 transmitters from working.
    Korey Sherwin -- vancouver, BC   2/15/2010
    Does not work with Anthem IR codes.
    MICHAEL -- richmond, TX   2/14/2010
    Make sure you know your IR codes and how you will program this unit, as its not Houselinc2 compatible.
    Dave -- raleigh, NC   8/15/2009
    Just got one in. Works well with Indigo. A little funky programing it.
    JIM -- innisfil, ON   8/1/2008
    Works great
    Eric Hester -- greenville, SC   6/29/2008
    IR Code support is very limited at this time. Tivo, appletv, and my rca tv all are not recognized at this time. Simplehomenet claims to be adding more code support soon, but there sure seem to have missed the boat with such popular items as these not being supported out of the gate.
