Essential Info

Interference from your wall mounted TV can limit the effectiveness of your IR control system. The Smarthome LCD Compatible IR Receiver Kit has been designed to suppress various types of interference, including Plasma, LCD, LED TVs, indirect sunlight, and energy-saving light bulbs.

The kit allows you to use an existing infrared (IR) remote control to operate up to eight audio/video (A/V) components located behind closed doors or walls in an entertainment cabinet or equipment closet. The built-in IR distribution technology gives you the ability to conceal, yet still control, bulky electronic equipment such as a cable or satellite TV receiver, stereo receiver, or amplifier, CD player, DVD player, Blu-ray player, or virtually any component controlled by an IR signal.

This kit comes with everything needed for a complete IR repeater system. No more leaving cabinet doors open or struggling to remotely access your hidden equipment, you'll be able to control up to eight hidden A/V components with extreme reliability.

Quick Tip: You can eliminate potential IR signal loss and interference and increase the signal reliability of the IR Emitter attached to your Audio / Video (AV) component with the addition of a Smarthome SELECT IR Emitter Shield (sold separately).

  • More Info

    How it Works
    The system uses an IR receiver to take in the IR signals from an existing remote control and distribute those signals via IR emitters to A/V components. Point the remote at the IR receiver to send the appropriate commands to your hidden A/V components. The receiver was specifically designed to reduce interference from Plasma, LCD, and LED TV screens that cause other IR receiver systems to fail.

    Works great!
    JEFFREY -- lakewood ranch, FL   1/4/2013
    Easy hook up. Very pleased with products function. Just a bit over priced. JN
    WILLIAM -- oxford, MI   3/18/2012
    Works as described. I used LAN wire to extend the ir Reciever wire. Great install works like a charm.
    First Reviewer -- roanoke, VA   1/13/2012
    Seems to Work Great. The only problem that I see is that it only works for one product at a time. Live and Learn. I put this on my DVR and it works without any delay as far as I can tell. Anyway if you have a TV are any IR Product that is out of the way the pick one of these Extenders up, it sure helps out.
    KEVIN -- south beloit, IL   12/2/2011
    emitters are so so, incorporated other emitters into the system to get all of the components to work properly. Other than that, installation was easy.
    tom z -- toronto   11/25/2011
    Listed as working with Scientific Atlanta but it does not. Do not buy this product if using Scientific Atlanta cable box.
    MDUBYA -- san diego, California   9/21/2011
    Very easy to splice with CAT5e for remotely placed blasters. Product works very well with LCD and LED tv's and a variety of AV equipment.
    JOEL RUSH, -- fort lauderdale, FL   8/11/2011
    Did not work with my UVerse DVR and had to send it back
    CHRIS -- santa fe, NM   6/24/2011
    This was everything they said it would be.. Shipped promptly, install was easy, works great!!
    uverse customer -- California   6/19/2011
    Got this to work with all my components except my AT&T Uverse Motorola VIP1200 set top box. very disappointed considering it was listed as being compatible.
    Matthew -- fontana, CA   6/13/2011
    Very easy to set up. No discernable delay between using the remote and having the component respond. I have the eye mounted on top on my LCD TV and the transmitters attached to a Time Warner Cable box, LG blue ray player, Sony receiver and Sony CD Jukebox. No signs of interferance with the TV and all components function. I have found that the transmitters fall off the components sometimes, so if you aren't getting a response from the remote, check because the transmitter has probably come off and needs to be reattached.
    MATTHEW -- rialto, CA   6/13/2011
    Works very well. No discernable delay. I have found that the led transmitters sometimes come off the components, so the only thing I would change on them is a little heftier adhesive.
    GARY -- verona, WI   5/22/2011
    Too soon to tell, only got it completely hooked up last night. There were a couple of issues with spurious IR input but I moved the receiver a few feet and it did not repeat. Any instruction at all on where the IR light comes out of the buds would have helped. Decent instructions on connecting the wires and great length on the receiver cable. The 59502 has a "1M" cable that is 28" long and woefully inadequate which is why I sent it back.
    JIM -- avon lake, OH   4/3/2011
    Works great, no problems.
    TOM -- allegany, NY   3/31/2011
    Very Happy. Easy to set up. Works Great!
    DAVE -- kent, OH   3/24/2011
    Havent had a chance to full hook up the reciever but did a test with our cable box and sound system and it worked very well. If I had it in full operation I may give it a 5 star.
    Keith -- Connecticut   3/17/2011
    This product did not work with a panasonic Plasma TV.
    BRIAN -- ossining, NY   3/3/2011
    Love it, we just installed a new fireplace and didn't know what to do with our cable box. This was the perfect soinstall and It was very easy to install.
    SteinkeBeyer -- Los Altos Hills CA   2/20/2011
    I started with the Logitech Harmony 890 + Harmony RF Wireless Extender, all was good. Then I bought the Harmony One for my wife as a Christmas gift, assuming of course it would work with the Harmony RF Wireless Extender. I repeatedly tried to program the Harmony One to get it to work with the RF Wireless Extender only to find out that it does not. I kept waiting for Logitech to come out with a compatible product which they never will never because they now have the Harmony One Advanced. I was skeptical as to how well this product would work. I had all my IR transmitters installed from the Harmony RF Wireless and I tried using them with this product and found that they do NOT work. So, I reinstalled all of the transmitters and found that the product works great. It works as good as the Harmony RF Wireless extender. In fact it bounces of the walls quite well so you don't need to point it directly at the receiver.
    John -- fresno, California   2/12/2011
    Excellent product, now my wife is happy because we were able to hide the mess that having an elaborate AV system creates. Have told several friends about this product and they all love it too.
