- Replacement Review by Ed
I am pleased that Smarthome found these. I have had the old IR543 made by X10 for years. Eventually they turn brown and quit working. The buttons on the top eventually quit and then it refused to accept IR signals. All the ones on Ebay they wanted over $60 for... and they were used...clearly in the same condition as the one I was throwing away. I figured I would get an Ebay one and it would quit right after. All the old X10 devices were good but ran hot and died...
I got this device and it worked out of the box. It connects to the serial modem and works just like my old one. All my remotes so far have worked with it (and those seem to last forever.) The range on this IR543 is slightly better than the old one. I miss the buttons on top occasionally but I rarely used those. These are the kind of devices I am glad Smarthome is able to find (and new!) No one else seems to have anything like them and it works well. I had hoped that manufacturers would surge in after X10 went out of business. They have, but much slower than I thought. In any case, I am pleased with my purchase and it works. I plan to get others for the other rooms in my house. I have remotes everywhere and this enables me to keep my systems working as before.
