  • What's Included
  • The Smarthome SELECT Hidden IR Repeater System allows you to use an existing infrared (IR) remote control to operate up to eight audio/video (AV) components located behind closed doors or walls in an entertainment cabinet or equipment closet. The built-in IR distribution technology gives you the ability to conceal, yet still control, bulky electronic equipment such as a cable or satellite receiver, stereo receiver, amplifier, CD player, DVD player, Blu-ray player, or virtually any component controlled by an IR signal. The system uses an IR Receiver to take in the IR signals from an existing remote control and distribute those signals via IR Emitters to AV components. No longer do you have to leave cabinet doors open or struggle to remotely access your hidden AV equipment, you'll be able to reliably control your hidden components from up to 40 feet away The result is the freedom to have an installation that offers a clean, modern look by keeping all the AV eyesores out of sight.





    40 Foot Range Dual IR Emitters
    LED Indicator Light DIY Installation

    An extended wireless range of 40 feet is 10 feet further than other similar products Less clutter with the same control, 4 wires with 2 IR Eitters instead of 8 wires with 1 IR Emitter A built-in LED indicator light on the IR Receiver lets you know the IR signal has been received Simple plug and play installation will have you in control within minutes



    How it Works

    IR Repeater - Repeats Remote Control Signals to Another Room



    Installation

    This convenient home theater accessory is easy to use and sets up in minutes, no electrician of professional installer required. Start by mounting the IR Repeater in your equipment cabinet using the included Velcro tape. Plug the 1/8 inch mini jack plug end of the IR Emitters into the repeater box and attach the other end to the IR window of each AV component you wish to control. Next, plug the 4-pin Connector from the IR Receiver into the IR Repeater box and place the other end in a location where it can receive line-of-sight signals from your IR remote control; ideally this will be on a shelf or on an exposed part of the cabinet. Double sided tape has been pre-installed on the IR emitters and the IR receiver to make this process easier. That's it, now you just use your remote control as you normally would, a confirmation LED indicator light on the IR receiver will let you know when the system has received a remote control command.

    The included emitters can control many different A/V components. They're made of material that is transparent to IR light, so commands can still pass directly to individual components if desired. Each emitter cord is approximately six feet in length, with two emitters split off the of end; the emitter wires can be peeled away from each other to allow for a variety of mounting positions. If your equipment is located in a closet or rack more than six feet away from your monitor, add a 50 Foot IR Emitter Extension Cable to each emitter cable for added distance; two can be used for a distance up to 100 feet.



    Compatibility

    Certain brands have been known not to work or have limited functionality including Scientific Atlanta, AT&T, U-Verse, Verizon FIOS and Direct TV. If you have one of these boxes we recommend using our Smarthome SELECT Plasma/LCD/LED/CFL Compatible IR Receiver Kit.



    System Notes

        •  When placed in an enclosed cabinet or closet, some AV components will require additional ventilation or a cooling fan
        •  Protect the IR Receiver from interference from Plasma, LCD, and LED TVs
        •  Protect the IR Receiver from excess ambient light, including direct sunlight, floodlights, halogen or fluorescent lamps
        •  Avoid IR emitter cables blocking equipment doors and slots that may need to be opened
        •  Attach the IR emitter directly to the component or to a shelf facing the component's IR eye (within 3 inches)
        •  Placing two IR emitters on the same component will not improve performance
        •  Do not attempt to open the power supply or IR repeater box, doing so will void your warranty
        •  The Hidden IR components are not weather-resistant, do not expose this system to moisture

    You don't have to spend big bucks for the high end repeaters. This one works very well. But know the limitation that it can only handle one receiver (rather than multiple like a Niles) and it uses the stick on retransmitters, which I am not a fan off. I am also currently using a higher end Niles product. Better? Maybe, but the real advantage of the Niles is the multi- receiver and the "blaster" repeaters. If all you need is one receiver and you are OK with the stick on transmitters this Smarthome Select repeater does a great job.

    Well out of the Box all the receiver case's basically fell apart. I ended up buying another repeater that is actually much better quality and was much cheaper. I would look at other products

    Product did not work. Apparently a different frequency is used by Cisco cable box. Would be nice to have a web page of incompatible devices.

    Solved my problem! I did not have the components in a cabinet, but rather there was furniture in the way. Before I added the repeater, I would have to work hard at pointing the TV/cable control at the cable box, change hands to reach around a chair to point it at the TV, etc. Now I just point it up at the ceiling over the TV and everything works great.

    Installation was very easy - 5 minutes.
