  • 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




    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.



    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

    Not clear which way the emitters need to face in order to function. Signal from remote must not be able to directly reach the equipment without going through the IR repeater or function is unpredictable.

    Great product. Easy to install, and it works great. Even on an older Sansui receiver.

    Poor sensitivity. Will have to try something else. Maybe I'm lazy, but I have to get out of my easy chair to receive full functionality from cable box. The eye doesn't seem to be very consistent...it blinks and acts as if it's receiving a signal but quite often doesn't do anything.

    Works great, even better than expected. It's sensitive enough that when mounted 6'-7' up on the wall at the back of my theater room, I can point my remote forward toward the screen and use the IR signal reflected from the screen at the front of my theater room to control the equipment at the back without having to position the receiving eye near the front of the room.

    Performance exceeds expectations. The repeater out performs direct inputs. Installation was easy.

    Works for some devices don't work for some device!

    It didn't work for Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300HDC / Comcast xfinity DVRs both models. Check for IR frequency before purchasing it, several comments in AV Forum site for the reason it don't work. Smarthome shouldn't decisive customer but should clearly state the IR frequency range as well as known device that wan't work at least that don't work such as U-verse, comcast, DirectTV - All major US Cable DVRs - let me say, I only confirm it don't work for Comcast

    The 50' extension cable Item# 8186. Lot is written that it don't work with Smarthome IR. It does work but one has to push male end of the cable in IR repeater box, the other end bit hard since the plastic comes in a way for perfect connection. Some people peel some plastic off, I just pushed hard, it works.

    I am able to automate entire activity for my netflix Vizio TV, Pioneer AV receiver and Sony Blu Ray, no success when it comes to xfinity DVR.

    I may have to look for Xantech IR repeater for xfinity DVR.

    Only complaint is that the glue to hold the receiver and transmitters is not very strong.
