Dual IR "Mouse" Emitter
Use this dual Infra-Red (IR) mouse emitter to pass IR signals to two IR components. This dual emitter works with our MC-66, MCA-66, and Lync whole-house audio controllers as well as the IR-BLOCK4 distribution block.
Three of these dual emitters are also included with every GW-IR3 and WGW-IR3. These IP-addressable "gateways" allow for control of your IR equipment via your home's existing Wi-Fi network. A compatible app, such as our own Valet Home Control™, is required.
The emitters emit a low-intensity "flash" while transmitting IR data, helping you setup and confirm that your IR distribution system is working correctly.
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.
Three dual IR-emitters are included with each of these gateways.
BEST PRACTICE TO IDENTIFY THE BEST LOCATION TO STICK THE EMITTER: Once your IR-Distribution Block or GW-IR3 or WGW-IR3 gateway has been properly set up, remove the protective film from the bottom of the emitter but DO NOT IMMEDIATELY ATTACH it to the device. First, hold the emitter about a half inch from the device and, while pressing the power button for that device (either on the remote control for that device while aiming at the IR receiving eye; or within the Valet App), slowly move the emitter around until you find the most reliable position. Stick the emitter to that position. (Should you determine that the emitter was not stuck to the optimal location, the emitter can be removed and re-positioned by slowly and carefully peeling it back from the surface of the device – DO NOT REMOVE THE EMITTER BY PULLING ON ITS CABLE.)
- Cable Length: 2 meters (6 feet)
- Connector type: 3.5mm (male)
- "Peel and Stick" for secure attachment in front of a component's receiving eye
- Plastic housing allows IR to pass through the emitter so that you can continue aiming the remote control directly at the component
- Emitter will visibly flash during IR transmissions
