Wired Home WHIREB IR Emitter Blaster
can I use this I R emiter to control a Verizon cable box thats hidden inside a cabinet, with just the emiter exposed?
Would I be able to use the same remote that came with the box? Thanks Larry
In order to control your device(s) in the manner you describe, you would require at least one target, one hub, and one emitter. The targets are available in various styles; this is where you would point the remote control for your device(s). The hub supplies power and interface for the components, and the emitter is what finally transmits the IR signal to your device(s). We have these components individually, or in kits which include all these components. I've linked a few such kits below for your convenience. And yes, once the system is installed, you can use the original remote that controls your device. Our repeater systems simply carry (repeat) that IR (infra-red) signal from your remote(s) to your device(s).
