What is an IR extender?

An IR extender is a smart solution that makes it possible to operate your audio and video devices, such as a TV decoder, Blu-ray player or AV amplifier, even if they are behind closed cupboard doors or in another room. With the help of this technology you can control your devices remotely without having to have sight of the devices. This way you maintain a tidy and stylish interior, while still retaining full control over your entertainment system.

How does an IR extender work?

With these products you can extend the infrared (IR) signal of your remote control. This allows you to easily operate equipment in a closed cabinet or in another room.

A set usually consists of a mini IR receiver, a module and an IR transmitter. You aim your remote control at the IR receiver which is connected to the module in the cabinet. The module sends the signal to the IR transmitter. This IR transmitter will then operate your equipment.

There are also IR extenders where the IR receiver and the module are in one box. So this is not a mini IR receiver, a small box remains visible. The operation is otherwise the same.

A solution for every situation

Our range has different types of products for operating your equipment:

  • inside a closed cabinet;
  • in another room;
  • at a large distance;
  • behind a TV.

There are various options for operating equipment inside a closed cabinet. You may, for example, place the IR receiver almost completely hidden from view or choose a basic model where the IR receiver is placed in view, in the form of a small box.

Depending on the model, you can place and operate up to 8 devices behind a closed door. This depends, among others, on the use of emitter LEDs or blaster LEDs.

IR emitter LED

An emitter LED is an LED that you must stick on or near the infrared eye of the device you wish to operate. This infrared eye is located on the front of your device. If the eye is hard to find, you can shine a light at the front of your device.

You will then easily find the infrared eye. On each device you want to operate, stick an emitter LED on or directly near the infrared eye.

IR blaster LED

A blaster LED is an LED that, unlike an emitter LED, you don't have to attach to the sometimes difficult to find infrared eye of the equipment you want to operate. You put this blaster LED inside a compartment of a cabinet that contains your equipment. The blaster LED ensures that all devices in the line of sight can be operated.

You only need 1 blaster LED for 4 devices inside one compartment. There's no need to attach a separate emitter LED to each device. Convenient! Using an IR extender with blaster enables you to operate up to 8 or more devices that are placed hidden from view.

If you want to operate equipment that is placed in another room, a wireless IR extender is a good solution. You place your TV in the living room and your equipment in an adjacent room, or even in the meter cupboard. 

This is also an ideal solution if your TV is attached to a wall bracket. In that case, you don't have to place your equipment directly next to your TV and you don't have an extra cable in view.

This type does not use emitter LEDs. You place the IR transmitter next to the equipment you want to operate, and can thus operate all equipment in the line of sight.

If you install one or more displays in a shop, gym or waiting room, you want to be able to operate them from an office or another room. If operating the equipment is not easy, we offer solutions to operate devices from up to a distance of 300 metres. This allows you to determine, from your office, what people will be viewing on the cross trainer or in the waiting room.

With this type you can choose between blaster LEDs or emitter LEDs.

Even though the Apple TV is just a small device, there is now also the possibility to hide it neatly behind your TV. This provides you with a very compact solution for operation from up to 1 metre. You will use the TV's USB power supply and prevent wires and boxes from being visible.

With the IR 100 USB, you'll only have a mini receiver on the bezel of the TV, making it hardly noticeable. Connect, tidy, done.
