  • Effective for covering component IR eyes for Xantech Designer Emitter

Essential Info

If you are using a Xantech Designer IR distribution system with Designer IR emitters, you can increase the signal reliability to the components you wish to control with this Emitter Shield Cover. The Designer IR emitter head slides right into the hollow area of the shield cover and both can be attached (using the pre-installed adhesive) over the IR window of the component you are trying to control. The cover works to block out IR signals coming from other emitters or remote controls that may interfere with the component you are trying to control. It also stops the IR signal, coming from the emitter it covers, from sending IR signals backwards, which can disrupt other IR emitter signals or components you wish to control.

    What can I say....They performed exactly as expected and all my remote commands register quick without interference or "double signals" I was receiving earlier. Excellent customer service as well and the price Smarthome was selling them for was almost 50% less than other competitors. This is just another reason I keep coming back to Smarthome to make purchases. 100% recommend the product and 110% recommend Smarthome.

    System works much better now without the stray IR signal causing duplicate remote commands.

    Cover doesn't fit over Universal Remote IR emitters.

    The product took longer to ship than requested. Otherwise, the sale/purchase went well.

    Great way to finish off the 282D emitter and make the installation look professional.
    MARCIAL -- forest hills, NY   7/23/2010
    Works fine. Just wish that the package included a spare stick-on adhesive so the cover can be reused if moved to another piece of equipment.
