IR Distribution

Most audio and video components can be controlled via Infra-Red (IR). If you prefer to hide these components in a closet or behind cabinet doors, you can still control them in one of two ways:

Use an IR distribution block, IR eye, and IR emitters. Position the eye in a convenient, yet inconspicuous location and connect it to the IR distribution block that is located near the hidden components. Connect emitters to the distribution block and place the flashing part in front of the components you'd like to control. Now, simply point your IR remote controls at the eye and the IR signals are passed to the components.

 

Please note that all of our whole-house controllers (models MC-66, MCA-66, and Lync) already have the IR block functionality built-in. All of the Keypads (models KC6, KC7, and LyncPad) include an IR eye. We also include several IR emitters with our whole-house audio complete set packages.

Use an IP-to-IR gateway, IR emitters, and a compatible app. IP-to-IR gateways can accept commands from the app via your WiFi network and convert those commands into IR signals that are flashed to your hidden components via the emitters. With this solution, our own app, called Valet Home Control, can be programmed by us to control all of the Audio/Video devices in your home. With our gateway models GW-IR3 and WGW-IR3 you can also add an IR eye, thereby gaining the functionality of an IR distribution block as well.
