Essential Info

This tiny blinking emitter have a self-adhesive pad that allow it to be stuck directly to the IR sensor window of your audio/video equipment. This configuration gives you the highest level of signal transmission accuracy. Continues to allow external IR signal through (so that you can still use your remote by directly pointing it at your audio/visual component).

The mini stick-on emitter includes a 7 foot cable between the emitter head and the mini-plug.

The size and shape of the emitter may vary slighty from the one pictured here but it will include the features above.

    LINCOLN -- sycamore, IL   3/6/2014
    Works,LED is not overly bright, allows IR remote to pass through as advertised, adhesive is good. Not very attractive
    EUGENE -- east meadow, NY   12/20/2010
    Easy to order and good product description.
    TRAVIS -- portland, OR   9/3/2010
    worked as expected
    JORN RUNE -- klepp stasjon, XX   3/30/2010
    very easy to install. works like a charm.
    PATRICK -- wilmington, DE   8/31/2009
    Great staying power. You're able to move these around to get the right fit without the emitters losing their stickiness!
    KARL -- arlington, VA   11/13/2008
    Cannot readily find the IR receiver on the cable box, but the emitter still changes channels with no difficulty. I've repositioned it several times. The adhesive leaves no residue when it's pulled off and continues to hold with no problems when I put it back on the box. It will allow the cable box to be turned off remotely, but will not turn it back on again. This may be an issue with positioning... have not been able to diagnose so just leave the box turned on all the time.
    CHRISTOPHER -- martinsburg, WV   10/17/2007
    The emitters worked perfectly, gave a good clear 'loud' signal that my satellite boxes could receive.
    RODNEY -- corona, CA   10/14/2007
    Great item. simple to use.
    THOMAS -- mandeville, LA   5/2/2007
    product works perfectly to solve an issue with Direct TV's H20 receiver connecting to a Tivo DVR
    MARK -- fremont, CA   2/8/2007
    These work *great* and the visible feature makes setup and debugging a snap.
    THOMAS -- savage, MN   1/17/2007
    Smarthome's branded emitter works just as well as my Xantech emitters at a lower price. Downside is that it doesn't look as sleek. This one has a somewhat large clear plastic block on the end vs. a smaller, rounded dark plastic end that may blend a bit better with visible equipment.
    STEVE -- kirkland, WA   11/15/2006
    These emitters are well-made, and work as described.
    KEVIN -- muscle shoals, AL   4/29/2006
