Essential Info

Add more control options to your audio video system by integrating a Round Micro Infrared Repeater into your IR control system. Unlike standard flat-panel infrared repeaters, these units increase the installation options by providing a clean and unobtrusive look.

  • 1x - Round Micro IR Sensor
  • 1x - Mounting Nut
  • 1x - Dark Lens
  • 1x - Clear Lens
  • More Info

    The Repeaters can install in any half-inch opening, and extends about a half-inch from the wall after installation. Typical mounting locations include equipment cabinets, ceilings, walls, inside speakers and other low-profile locations. The round micro sensor can be installed in any standard electrical box or P-ring.

    These Tube-Style Infrared Repeaters also feature voltage regulation, allowing for consistent sensitivity and immunity from power supply noise. Furthermore, an LED confirms when an infrared signal is received.

    Cat. 5 cable is recommended for connections.

    The Round Micro IR Sensor's typical range is 40 feet with an acceptance angle of 130°. Extensive shielding and special ground plane PCB design creates robust immunity to electrical noise.

    Note to Plasma TV Owners: You may experience interference depending upon the distance and angle at which this sensor is mounted in relation to your plasma television.

    ROLAND -- manchester, TN   4/4/2013
    Works. Got this to replace one that is nolonger available. Only problem is I can't seem to find the right number of filters. One not enough and two too many.
    ERIC -- pine brook, NJ   1/7/2012
    I have been using / installing this product with success for a couple of years now with no complaints.
    Ken -- Scottsdale   12/10/2011
    Does not work well with LCD/Plasma displays. No matter where I mount it within several feet of the display, it is inoperable for the first 2-3 minutes after turning on the TV. Works okay after that. Also doesn't work well around CFL light bulbs
    Andre S -- Channel Islands UK   11/16/2011
    Fantastic Product, works really well and is hardly noticible when mounted on my ceiling. Excellent.
    GARY -- pardeeville, WI   7/23/2011
    Stay lite half the time, and dosent work very well in bright rooms.
    NOAM -- silver spring, MD   2/19/2011
    Works really well, but I found that some florescent lights can overpower it, and render it useless.
    ASSDEAUX -- belleville, NJ   2/18/2011
    Works great highly recommend.
    ROBERT -- atlanta, GA   2/4/2011
    Wow, amazing. I had purchased the DL85 DinkyLink IR receiver for around $85, but didn't like how it was going to look in the installation. I found this, which I could mount into a black surface I have. I've had friends ask where my IR receiver is since installing, and even when I point it out they can't tell it's there! But even more impressive is the reception. This thing receives everything! Crazy wide angles and distances with no interference of any kind. I'm super impressed, and would recommend this to anyone.
    R. SCOTT -- central, SC   1/10/2011
    This is a little big, but works great.
    STEVE AND MARY -- christchurch, XX   12/26/2010
    Very good service and product. Packaging approx 15 times larger than necessary. very wastefull
    ERIC -- pine brook, NJ   12/11/2010
    Have been installing these parts for customers for a couple of years now. I have had no problems, and will continue to use them.
    CORI -- munster, IN   11/29/2010
    Seemless and easy to install. You'll have it working in 10 minutes.
    DENNIS J -- south bend, IN   8/19/2010
    works great, had no problems with my order. I have allways had good results with Smarthome !
    PAUL -- christchurch, XX   6/28/2010
    Mounted into wall. Very discrete, just what I needed for a clean look.
    JASON -- east stroudsburg, PA   6/24/2010
    Works great! Sticks out of the wall slightly more than you would think. Would be best in a cabinet, but still looks slick, and works perfectly!
    ERIC -- pine brook, NJ   6/2/2010
    Have been using this part for a while, now it is better with the addition of filter discs to block EMI from TVs and other sources.
    ERIC -- pine brook, NJ   5/10/2010
    Works well, even easier to make work now that filters are provided to knock out extraneous IR signals.
    BRIAN -- mckinney, TX   12/21/2009
    This sensor works great! I replaced other poor-performing units costing 3x as much. I have three of them in three different rooms with three different types of TV and three different types of lighting.
    ERIK -- dania beach, FL   10/18/2009
    worked ok
    WALTER -- danville, CA   8/27/2009
    Functions exactly per specifications.
