  • What's Included
  • If you already own or plan to purchase an NextGen IR to RF to IR Remote Control Range Extender Kit, 433 MHz, you can use your existing IR remote control to control audio/video (A/V) components up to 100 feet away, even through walls and doors. The kit converts the infrared signal from the (IR) remote control you are accustomed to and transforms it into a radio frequency (RF) signal, giving it longer range capabilities. Installation is simple: replace one of the batteries in your existing remote with this transmitter (a rechargeable battery fits inside of an AAA sized transmitter) and exchange the transmitter for a AAA battery in your remote. The included sleeve adapter can be used if the remote uses AA batteries. This kit only includes the ability to convert one remote control.

    Great --- if you eliminate sporadic failures with this "fix" Review by R-David-D
    Great --- if you eliminate sporadic failures with this "fix"

    This works great ----- most of the time, but I've found a fix that's close to 100%. The problem is that there are 3 sets of contacts that need to be "good" in order for this to work properly (1. from the 2/3 battery to the RF emitter, 2. from the RF emitter to the AA size adapter, and 3. from the AA adapter to your remote). If the spring force in your remote is not great enough to cause good solid contacts for all 3 connections (and since each connection has both a + and a - component, we're actually talking about 6 contact points), then your NextGen will not function properly. What I did was to add a thin piece of metal between the negative end of the 2/3 battery and the contact spring in my remote. Thus by increasing the overall length of the "battery" assembly I've created more force on all contact points. Since doing this I've had a very significant decrease in remote failures. And of course since the 2/3 battery is not as powerful as a full size battery I always pair it with fresh lithium ion batteries which can output 110%.

    I thought I already did this but, here goes again. I highly recommend this product. It works great! Our cable/dvr box is located at the far end of the house over the garage. We operate it from the first and second floors without any issues.

    Third product that I have used. First was a RadioShack product a decade ago...old tech but sorta worked. Later used a pyramid but never really worked as advertised. The Smarthome product keeps on working though I will soon need a new battery.

    The additional transmitter that I received was exactly as ordered and work perfectly. The NextGen remote is amazing! It accurately controls my receiver from anywhere in the house.
