Controlling Audio Video Components Through Walls
Because most people unknowingly leave lights on as they leave the house, we recommend installing the controller next to your front door. And since most homes have a switch located there anyway and our keypad can replace an existing light switch, it works out easiest.
With more and more home theater components available and affordable than ever before, finding somewhere to put them all in place that wont be an eyesore and where they can also be easily controlled has become increasingly difficult. Moving them to a cabinet or closet is the ideal solution for getting them organized and out of site. However, since most audio video (AV) components are controlled by infrared (IR), which requires line of sight to the remote control, how do you control them if they're located behind solid doors or walls?
An IR Repeating Kit allows you to use an existing IR remote control to operate multiple 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 A/V components. No more leaving cabinet doors open or struggling to remotely access your hidden equipment, you'll be able to control components from across the room with extreme reliability.
