If you are already using a Smarthome SELECT IR Repeater Kit (see compatibility below), or plan to purchase one in the near future, consider adding the IR Emitter Shield to your order. Simply put, the IR Emitter Shield is a cover that goes over the top of an IR Emitter that has been attached to your Audio / Video (AV) component - increasing the signal reliability. It prevents a backward IR signal from leaking out, which would typically result in loss of signal and possibly causing signal interference with other devices. It also prevents the intrusion of outside IR signals from other emitters or remote controls that could possibly cause interference with the component you are trying to control. The IR Shield features as hollow area that will fit right over the top an IR Emitter and the attaches to the IR window of the component you are trying to control using the pre-installed peel and stick mounting adhesive (additional adhesive is include if you should ever need to move or replace the IR emitter connection).
IR signal distribution makes it possible to operate AV components without line-of-sight access to them, through walls or doors - or even in other rooms of your home. However, IR Emitters that deliver IR signals to the components will occasionally allow external IR signals to pass through, or leak past, sometimes even affecting other components in your system. The Smarthome SELECT IR Emitter Shield is the solution to prevent this. 5-Pack
quantitites are also available for systems with more than one IR Emitter. Compatibility
