Perfect Gift for the Home Theater Lover! Use a Remote Control to Operate A/V Components Hidden Behind Doors!

December 11, 2011 1 comment

The Smarthome Hidden IR Repeater System allows you to use an existing infrared (IR) remote control to operate up to eight audio/video (A/V) 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 TV receiver, stereo receiver or 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 A/V components. No more leaving cabinet doors open or struggling to remotely access your hidden equipment, you’ll be able to control up to eight A/V components from up to 40 feet away with extreme reliability.

This new Hidden IR Repeater System features the following improvements over the previous model:

  • The IR receiver has an operating distance of 40 feet (formerly 30 feet)
  • There are only four dual emitters (instead of eight single emitters), making it easier to manage cables
  • The IR receiver has a compact, flat form factor (formerly large and round) for easier mounting
  • The IR emitters connect to the main hub via a 1/8″ mini jack plug
  • The IR receiver connects to the main hub via a 4-pin DIN connector
  • A feedback LED indicator light has been built-in to the IR receiver (instead of being a separate component to plug in), making it easier to manage cables

December 2, 2011 Leave a comment

Use this remote control with virtually any system, from basic TV and cable boxes to the most advanced home theater system. Program only the functions you want for a completely customized remote control. The Weemote uses a minimal amount of buttons so it can be used by anyone, especially children and elderly users. Buttons are dedicated to the most standard functions, such as power, mute, and volume and channel control. Five additional buttons can be dedicated to your favorite channels or programmed to include a number of advanced functions, such as a sleep timer or video input control. Very advanced learning functions make the Weemote compatible with just about any brand of television equipment.

The Weemote can also be programmed to restrict certain functions. Volume control can be turned off to ensure it won’t get too loud. The channel up/down buttons can also be programmed to cycle through certain channels, limiting the access to your available channels. Programming buttons can only be accessed by removing the screw and cover so you can be sure your settings won’t accidentally get changed if someone sits on the remote. The Weemote requires the use of two AAA batteries, sold separately. Once the batteries are installed, the battery cover must be screwed back on, keeping the batteries secure until the screws are removed. All settings are stored regardless of battery level so reprogramming won’t be necessary when you replace the batteries. Read more
