Smarthome SELECT IR Control

"I have placed my cable box and DVD player inside a cabinet/closet and I would like to be able to control my equipment. What do I need to achieve this?"

It seems that as more people toss out their old huge TV and cabinets in favor of that sexy wall-mounted flat panel TV, the more they realize just how much room the A/V gear takes up. They now want to move the gear to a nearby closet or maybe just completely hidden behind closed cabinet doors. These are both great ideas, but how can you control them once they are out of sight? Since most components are controlled by infrared (IR), the question is how to get those signals through an opaque wall, door or cabinet?

For control of more than two audio/video (A/V) devicess you would need a hardwired IR control system. These systems allow you to use an existing infrared (IR) remote control to operate multiple A/V 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 TV receiver, stereo receiver or 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.
