Vanco 280731 CFL Resistant 1x6 Home Theater IR Repeater Kit with Mini Surface-Mount Receiver

  • Pass IR signals through doors/walls to control hidden AV components without line of sight
  • CFL Resistant mini surface-mount IR Receiver accepts signals from up to 40 feet away
  • Two included IR emitters stick directly onto your AV equipment – supports up to six IR emitters
  • IR receiver and IR emitters work with existing remote controls
  • IR Receiver works in most lighting environments and is CFL resistant
  • LED status indicators on connecting block

The Vanco 280731 CFL Resistant 1×6 IR Repeater Kit is a great way to control your home theater components that are located inside of a media cabinet or in an AV equipment closet. Most AV components are controlled via an infrared (IR) remote control that requires a line of site to work between the remote control and the component(s). So components located behind closed doors can’t be controlled unless the doors are open, which defeats the purpose. An IR repeater kit solves this problem. The mini surface-mount IR receiver is the only item that needs to be visible. It receives IR commands from your remote, passes it through the connecting block and distributes the signals out through the IR emitters. This system allows you to keep 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 behind closed doors so you can use your remote control like normal.   Read More
