  • 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


    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.

    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

    This thing won't reliably control my Marantz AV Amp, or my Comcast HDTV box made by Pace. I have to press the remote buttons several times, sometimes it doesn't work at all.

    Works good. Not quite as responsive as just aiming remote right at the item being used. I do find I have to long press the key a bit, but I figured this to be even before I purchased. Good product.

    Worked excellent and very easy to hook up. Not sure why I went 2 years with a cabinet door open when all I needed was to spend $50!!!

    Review of 59501

    When I got it home I tested it on my dvd player and it worked. I ran all wires in the walls and trying to use it on my new blue ray player and it did not work. Now I dont know what to do to get my remote to control the blue ray. I was useing this item with 50ft emitter and IR sensor extension cable Item #8186. If you buy this item make sure it is compatable with you devices.

    Smarthome is an amazing company that makes very good products, however this is not one of them. Half of the IR emitters were non-functioning. The other half barely functioned.

    The customer service was great. They took back the opened and used product, no questions asked.

    My first unit did not work, but the replacement (less than 2 days arrival time) worked perfectly.
