Product Details

Wired Home DBIRX Infrared Repeater System Kit Dual Band

With a Wired Home IR Repeater system, you can locate your A/V components out of sight in a closet or cabinet and still use your remote control.

The central module features industry-standard jacks for power, target, and emitters, so no tools are needed for installation. Screw tabs on the sides of the control module allow it to be permanently attached to just about any surface. The system includes two double-emitters with two meter cords, to control up to four devices. The target has a one meter cord so it can be located away from the control module. There are two LEDs on the control module; the red LED shows the system has power and the green LED flashes to show signal transmission. A 5V DC power supply is included.

Wired Home DBIRX Infrared Repeater System Kit Dual Band
Wired Home DBIRX Infrared Repeater System Kit Dual Band is rated 4.8571 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to set up and use!I am very impressed with this economical unit. I had it out of the box and operational within a matter of minutes. There is no programing required, it's simply a "plug and play" item. The ability to expand up two to IR readers with 10 transmitter devices is nice as well. I would highly recommend this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DBIRX RepeaterI use this unit for my outside stereo with the equipment that is indoors. It took nearly no time to install and set up.The receiving unit is more sensitive than the equipment it is now repeating to. Works flawlessly. If I could make one suggestion, is one of the transmitters feeds an older XM radio home unit that the buttons are too close to mount directly to the unit and I needed to tape it on. Unit is hidden away, so nobody sees it, but looks kind of funky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ValueI bought this system a couple of weeks ago for my home theater. Works very well. I have the detector mounted over 30 feet from the receiver (spliced additional wire) and haven't noticed any signal degradation. The view angle of the receiver seems to be a bit narrow, although probably within the advertised +/- 15 deg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for a great product!Great product. Easy to install and works great with my new TV. Adhesive was good on the components to adhere to cable box and TV.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for adjacent cabinet/closetThe IR Repeater system is a bargain, and works great. I have done many where the TV was either close to a closet/cabinet or far away. This one is good for where the TV is adjacent to acloset or cabinet due to the factory length of the wires on the receiver and the emitters. The quarter size receiver is not the end of the world to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DBIRX IR Repeater KitI have installed 3 of these and they perform flawlessly. I have used this repeater with brand-new equipment, old equipment, and most recently, a mix of mid-90s electronics and 2013 stuff...all work perfectly. I only wish the "eye" was smaller, then it would be easier to conceal, but for a stinkin' $29 it does all it is purported to do. Highly recommended.

Does this IR repeater work with Dish and Direct DVR's?

Asked by: rga48
Being a dual band IR system, this repeater should work with all IR AV equipment.

How can I extend the range over Cat-5 or Coax?

I have both Cat-5 and coax run to from my wiring closet to where I would like the IR receivers to be. How can I extend using one of these cables?
Asked by: SBR140.6
A system like this can only use Cat 5 as a splice between the receiver (target) and hub. An easier solution would be to use a 3.5mm headphone extension cable at whatever length you need.

How far does the emitter reach

How far can the emitter eye be from the hub to transmit. I have 33 ft between the emitter and the receiver.
Asked by: Dan man
The emitters used in this kit have a 10 foot cord. You can extend this up to around 100 feet using cat3 or cat 5 cable if needed.

Very interested. Sounds cool. What exactly is it used for?

Asked by: Trogdor
This system is designed to allow you to put your A/V equipment in a cabinet or separate room and transmit the IR signal from the remote without needing to be line of sight with the devices. This system includes an IR target (which you point the remote at), a hub and four emitters which stick to the IR sensors on your electronics.
