Essential Info

The Smarthome Plasma/LCD/LED/CFL Compatible Surface Mount IR Receiver 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. The kit 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. No more leaving cabinet doors open or struggling to remotely access your hidden equipment, you'll be able to control up to eight A/V components from up to 80 feet away.

As the name implies, the Smarthome Plasma/LCD/LED/CFL Compatible Surface Mount IR Receiver Kit works with plasma, LCD and LED TVs, and can also be used in rooms with CFL lighting, which may cause interference with similar products.

The multi-colored trim pieces, not only help blend the kit's appearance into your home's decor, but also assist in blocking noise that may interfer with your IR signals.

The compact IR receiver, which measures 2.6 in. (L) x .47 in. (W) x .39 in (H), can be mounted in the most inconspicuous locations such as under shelf edges, on cabinet ledges or even in the grill of an in-wall speaker. It also features a sense input which can let you know if an external A/V device is on or off.

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.

    Note: Wiring data in the enclosed manual is incorrect. The following is correct:

    IR : Grey Dash

    V+ : Grey Stripe

    G : Solid Black

    System Notes
    • Some A/V components, such as high-powered amplifiers and receiver, may require additional ventilation and will overheat in an enclosed cabinet and might require a cooling fan.
    • Avoid allowing IR emitter cables to block equipment doors and slots that may need to be opened from time to time
    • You'll enjoy increased range in dimmer applications, as this IR system has more sensitivity with less ambient light
    • Do not attempt to open the power supply or IR repeater connecting block. Doing so will void your warranty
    • This item is not weather-resistant. Do not expose this system to moisture
    • A 120 volt AC power supply is included. For use in 220/240 volt countries, use a locally obtained 220/240 VAC to 12 volt DC, 500 mA adapter

    This item workd very well and I recommend it to anyone.
    J R -- fort worth, TX   2/7/2014
    This is an awesome IR kit that works well with both plasma and other types of TVs. The first IR receiver set up I bought (from somewhere else) a kit prior to this one that did NOT work with the TV. Just an FYI. Smarthome is extremely good with the products they sell. Shipping is fast and items are always as described.
    JASON -- nashville, TN   1/27/2014
    This product works perfectly. It was very easy to set up, and now I have all of my boxes hidden. The television looks great with no cords/boxes around it.
    Kevin -- dallas, TX   11/29/2013
    Does NOT work with the DirecTV Genie DVR but works with all of my Yamaha and Sony equipment. I don't have any other manufacturer emitters to experiment with. Disappointed but fortunately I can deal with the DVR by locating it behind a glass door.
    MICHAEL -- fort mill, SC   11/14/2013
    IR kit is working well. Doing exactly what it is suppose to do.
    Dan Bardon -- oakland, CA   11/4/2013
    I was able to operate a Directv Hr44 Genie receiver in IR with this product. I have a sonos playbar along with a Sharp TV. The directv Hr44 and a Sony blueray player are behind a cabinet door. I needed to use IR to run it all from one Directv RC65X controller. It is working without any flubs.
    KIMIKO -- brea, CA   10/14/2013
    Very small, works well, good price. Installed by a professional.
    MICHAEL -- fort mill, SC   7/1/2013
    Working well so far!
    GregU -- Minnesota   3/25/2013
    Excellent product. I was able to hook this up in less than 15 min. I have a big 60 Plasma TV and was able to mount it just above the TV. I have a big room 30ft long and was able to use it all locations in the room with zero lag. The blue led lights up you won't notice it unless you are close and know where the receivef. It worked with my A/V equipment and Motorola cable box. There were 4 dual emitters included with a reasonable long cable.
    Pierre B. -- ottawa, Canada   1/15/2013
    Excellent product. I've extended the length of the IR Receiver by about 50ft using CAT6 cable I had laying around. Please note that the wiring diagram in the manual is wrong, you need to use the following: IR : Grey Dash V+ : Grey Stripe G : Solid Black I don't see why they don't include a note or something when you order as I first wired everything has mentionned in the manual and then had to redo everything when I talk to tech support. For this reason I am giving 4 stars and not 5. As for the product, kudos, it works 100%!!
    DEREK -- mission viejo, CA   11/5/2012
    Works right as it should, I wish I could get a 2nd receiver for another part of my room.
    Peter F -- los angeles, CA   10/2/2012
    Just received my #59505 today 10-2-2012. May I suggest for future customer orders of #59505, if you include Installation Manual version 05-21-2012, please place a 1.5 x 1.5 sticker with 'correct' installation information over 'incorrect' info. Not all Smarthome customers expect to review your website to view a 'corrected' Installation Manual. I may wrong, but I feel Smarthome Customers expect 100% with and no less, especially when 'incorrect' info can easily be corrected with a tiny sticker. Simply find out your qty on-hand of #59505, and print out that many stickers, then place the sticker on all the 'incorrect' manuals in your current inventory. Done, and no future unhappy/frazzled Smarthome customers. Don't get me wrong, I love SMARTHOME! You guys rock with product selection and easy to navigate and informative website that always seems to have something I want, even if I don't need it.
    AHAMMED -- nacogdoches, TX   7/20/2012
    Works fine. Had a minor hitch in the manual, where the color codes were different from the actual product. Smarthome responded to my email and fixed the manual!
    ROBERT -- frisco, TX   7/15/2012
    Instruction sheet needed to be updated. Color code on wire was not correct. tech support very good.
