Infrared (IR) remote controls have limited range and generally only work in the same room as the audio/video (A/V) component it controls. This IR to Radio Frequency (RF) to IR Remote Control Range Extender Kit uses an internal transmitter to convert your remote's IR signal into an RF signal, giving you the ability to control your components up to 100 feet away, through walls, floors, doors and windows. Simply slide one of the rechargeable batteries into the transmitter and switch that out with a battery in your remote control; it works with remotes using AA or AAA batteries (AA sleeve adapter included). When the remote control is used, the IR signal is converted to RF and is sent to a small, AC-powered receiver (RF base station), which is placed facing the components you wish to control. The receiver then converts the signals back to IR and sends them to your components, all in a fraction of a second. Ideal for home theater setups that have components behind closed doors, you have the freedom to move throughout your home and control components that are out of sight. This device operates on a 433 MHz RF signal; it is also available in a 418MHz RF signal.
Important Note: This kit is NOT COMPATIBLE with remote controls using built-in rechargeable battery packs.
The internal RF adapter has a AAA-size transmitter and AA-size sleeve, so it can extend your existing remote control's operating range, regardless of which type of battery it requires. It will work with almost any remote control you'd like. Want to use it with more than one remote? Not a problem: add as many Extra RF Transmitters, sold separately, as you'd like. For homes where maintaining the decor is a primary concern, the system can be hidden from view by using the included IR Emitter
