Control Audio/Video & More from Any Room

While there are plenty of products that offer to extend your IR remote signals from one room to another, using INSTEON allows you to easily combine lighting control with IR control. Now you can not only turn your favorite station on from another room but also dim the lights down - all from a single remote.

  • Remote Control for Your A/V Equipment

    Use a remote to set a romantic mood by turning on your stereo, setting the radio station and dimming down the lights. REMOTE CONTROL FOR YOUR A/V EQUIPMENT

    INSTEON Mini Remote sends a wireless RF signal to Access Points or dual-band products which send signals over your existing electrical wires to the IRLinc Transmitter. IRLinc then converts the signals to IR commands to control your A/V equipment. You can also link INSTEON switches, plug-in modules, outlets and more to respond to the same command; creating elegant movie-time scenes.

    The RF signals from the Mini Remote can be converted and transmitted to the IRLinc by way of any dual-band device. Choose LampLinc Dual-Band modules for lamp control and you won't need an Access Point.

  • Convert and Existing Wall Switch Into an IR Remote

    Replace an existing wall switch with a KeypadLinc and be able to turn the lights off in addition to the TV or other A/V gear. This works well for the master bedroom: when leaving your room, turn off the bedside lamp, ceiling light and TV or stereo all at the press of a button. CONVERT AN EXISTING WALL SWITCH INTO A CUSTOM IR REMOTE
    KeypadLinc transmits commands to other INSTEON devices and to your A/V devices via IRLinc Transmitter.
