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 RF to IR Remote Control Range Extender Kit uses an internal transmitter that converts your remote's IR signal into a radio frequency (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 frequency; it is also available in a 418MHz RF Frequency.

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

  • 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.

    BRANTLEY -- cincinnati, OH   2/20/2014
    i can't get it to work!!
    ROGER -- denver, CO   1/10/2014
    WORKS OK BUT HAVING TROUBLE GETTING A GOOD SIGNAL TO OTHER REMOTES.
    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

    BARBARA -- donora, PA   9/20/2013

    SCOTT -- bismarck, ND   9/7/2013

    MICHAEL -- fall river, NS   9/6/2013

    DENNIS -- rochester, NY   9/5/2013
    Worked perfectly. Saves me so much time changing channels on my DirecTV receiver from outside my RV.
    CHAD -- rainsville, AL   7/29/2013
    I have only opened 1 of the 2 that I have bought. The 1 does not work very well at all. Im having a hard time to get it to work with my Logitech 650 remote. It will work for about an hour then it want do anything. As of right now Im very disappointed. thx
    VICTOR PADILLA -- jiutepec, XX   7/26/2013
    Excellent product. Saludos from Mexico.
    HARRY -- greensboro, NC   7/5/2013
    The remote range extender arrived well packaged, instructions were well written and easy to understand. Installation took about 15-minutes because I had to move and reposition furniture. Otherwise it would have been quicker.
    SHELDON -- boca raton, FL   5/25/2013
    works great, I have two, one on each frequency. solved all my issues
    ANDREW -- sayreville, NJ   5/8/2013
    I was worried at 1st something would go wrong. I was wrong lol. The device works flawlessly. I use it to control my pioneer receiver from the backyard for a backyard audio system & even from the curb at the front of the house IT WORKS :D even better if ur device has a remote input like the mini stereo jack w ipods & headphones, get the cable & plug that in instead, messy free & reliable. High end audio recievers, some set top boxes & some tvs have this. HIGHLY recommend
    NOEL -- wahnapitae, ON   4/19/2013
