Essential Info

Infrared (IR) remote controls have limited range and generally only work in the same room as the audio/video (A/V) component it controls. This IR to Radio Frequency (RF) to IR Remote Control Range Extender Kit uses an internal transmitter to convert your remote's IR signal into an RF signal, giving you the ability to control your components up to 100 feet away, through walls, floors, doors and windows. Simply slide one of the rechargeable batteries into the transmitter and switch that out with a battery in your remote control; it works with remotes using AA or AAA batteries (AA sleeve adapter included). When the remote control is used, the IR signal is converted to RF and is sent to a small, AC-powered receiver (RF base station), which is placed facing the components you wish to control. The receiver then converts the signals back to IR and sends them to your components, all in a fraction of a second. Ideal for home theater setups that have components behind closed doors, you have the freedom to move throughout your home and control components that are out of sight. This device operates on a 433 MHz RF signal; it is also available in a 418MHz RF signal.

How it Works
IR to RF to IR Remote Control Range Extender Kit

Important Note: This kit is NOT COMPATIBLE with remote controls using built-in rechargeable battery packs.


What's Included

  • 1x - IR to RF Transmitter
  • 2x - Mini AAA NiMH Rechargeable Batteries
  • 1x - AA adaptor sleeve adapter
  • 1x - RF Base Station
  • 1x - IR Emitter (8 foot cable)
  • 1x - AC power adapter
  • 1x - Owner's manual
  • More Info

    The internal RF adapter has a AAA-size transmitter and AA-size sleeve, so it can extend your existing remote control's operating range, regardless of which type of battery it requires. It will work with almost any remote control you'd like. Want to use it with more than one remote? Not a problem: add as many Extra RF Transmitters, sold separately, as you'd like. For homes where maintaining the d├ęcor is a primary concern, the system can be hidden from view by using the included IR Emitter.

    JERRY -- huntsville, AL   6/28/2014
    Works great. No longer have to look at all the devices.
    Eric Wiggins -- baton rouge, LA   6/18/2014
    I know this is for reviews, but has anyone been able to contact the company that makes this product NextGen. I have left 3 voice mail messages and 2 E-mail and have had no response that I know of. I would like to know if this product works with D12-100 DirectTV receiver and if so, which version do I need to order. Thanks
    Ed Smth -- Imperial Missouri   6/1/2014
    I do not impress easy, However, This Product works even better than I had hoped. DVR is in the basement and it will operate TV on the second floor third if you count basement I have 4 TV's connected via a splitter on 3 different floors and HAVE NO PROBLEM using this product on any of them.
    JOHN -- chester, VA   5/12/2014
    The unit works great! The cable dvr is located on the second floor on the opposite side of the house over the garage. We have no problems controlling the equipment via the NextGen system from the family room on the first floor or the master bedroom on the second floor.
    MICHAEL -- westerville, OH   4/6/2014
    Works as described

    J THOMAS -- guntersville, AL   1/16/2014
    Works exactly like it says. Easy to install. Should have bought this a long time ago. House wired for audio. This enables me to change audio sources to my amp from anywhere in house.
    ROGER -- denver, CO   1/10/2014
    CHARLES -- omaha, NE   12/21/2013
    Works great. I use 2 at different frequencies for different sets
    NICHOLAS -- tempe, AZ   12/18/2013
    It's awesome, get one if you want to hide your cable box or stereo or whatever. I had the DirecTV radio remote control and switched over to Cox Cable to get the Pac 12 Network, but they don't have an RF remote. My media stand is enclosed with sliding doors so I hated keeping them open. Boom, problem solved, works like a charm.
    DAVID -- seattle, WA   12/16/2013
    Excellent communication regarding function problems and very prompt exchange of units!
    David -- New York   11/14/2013
    I have a doubt/question. How can this work if your TV still has to be connected to the cable box with an HDMI cable? Thanks.
    PATRICK -- windsor, ON   11/4/2013
    It does what it claims to and that's always good. Range isn't exactly as far as I wanted with my personal setup but that was true of my previous RF remote as well. I do wish the antenna could be replaced on the unit to extend reception. But so far so good.
    ZAFI -- las vegas, NV   10/9/2013
    Works great!
    JERRY -- fredericktown, OH   10/6/2013
    I'm very happy with the purchase. It's working great, even from the basement.
