MP 7973 IR to RF to IR Wireless Infrared IR Remote Control Extender Kit

 

 

 

 

  • Converts an Infrared (IR) signal to Radio Frequency (RF) back to Infrared (IR)
  • Transmission range of 100 Meters (328 Feet)
  • Includes IR transmitter (emitter) cables with various lengths
  • Arc shaped design for wide IR receiving range
  • Low power consumption

 

You’ve got your stereo system speakers installed on your back porch so you can enjoy your music. Unfortunately you can’t change the volume without running back into the house and physically adjusting the volume control on your receiver, and you don’t want to install a wall-plate volume control. This IR to RF to IR Wireless Infrared IR Remote Control Extender Kit is the solution.

This wireless IR extender converts the IR signal into an RF signal at 433.92 MHz, for transmission to the receiver unit, up to 100 meters away, through walls, doors, ceilings, and floors, or whatever. At the receiving end, an IR cable with three bulbs (emitters) repeats the IR signal from your remote to up to three individual components, so you can use it up for your cable/satellite receiver, DVD/Blu-ray player, and an audio receiver.

Typical IR remote controls have a limited range and require line of sight with the component you are trying to control. With this IR to RF to IR Wireless Infrared IR Remote Control Extender Kit you can have your Audio Video (AV) components in another room, closet, equipment cabinet or entertainment center behind closed doors, and still have control.  Read More

Blank and Locks your Computer Screen When you are Away from your System

March 21, 2012 Leave a comment

MP 8228 Screen Keeper - Computer Monitor Privacy Protector USB DongleThe Screen Keeper is a personal, automated, computer privacy system. While most other system systems lock your computer based on the amount of time since the last activity, the Screen Keeper system is based on proximity. Walk away from your system and it will automatically blank the screen and lock out input. Come back and it automatically unlocks and restores your computer screen!

The Screen Keeper system comes with a dongle receiver, which plugs into your computer’s USB port. A small, low-power RF transmitter can be attached to your clothing or put into your pocket. Whenever you are within a few meters of your system it will be active and you can use it normally. Whenever, the transmitter moves to 4-9 meters away, your screen is automatically blanked and the system locked to prevent tampering.

The distance at which the system is locked and blanked is adjustable over three ranges (short, middle, long). The software also allows you to let the monitor go into power-saving standby mode whenever you are away for the specified amount of time. The transmitter device will also go into power-saving standby mode whenever you are away for a while. To reset the device, simply turn it off, then back on and it will be ready to activate your system whenever you are within the appropriate range.

The single CR2025 battery in the transmitter device will last about a year, based on a standard 5-days/week, 8-hours/day work schedule. For best results, the receiver dongle should be placed on top of the desk, next to the keyboard, which may require the use of a USB extension cable. Read more
