Product Details

Wired Home WHIRH IR Repeater Hub
The WH-IRH is the heart of an IR system. A single hub is capable of supporting up to 15 targets and four emitters. Additionally, a Wired Home IR system can be expanded by paralleling hubs for a complete whole house control system with an almost unlimited amount of zones. Built into the WH-IRH is an LED for confirmation of signal to reduce troubleshooting time. Also built-in is a status power port which is connected to a 12V trigger or a 12 VDC power supply connected to the switched electrical outlet of an AV device. Power is provided by the Wired Home WH-PS 12 VDC, 500 mA power supply (sold separately), but a 12 VDC, 2A power supply is recommended for extremely long runs.

Wired Home WHIRH IR Repeater Hub
Wired Home WHIRH IR Repeater Hub is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and works greatI read through all of the reviews here before buying this, but promptly forgot them when doing the install. I have about 50' of cat6 bridging the gap between this hub and the target, using the 1.2 a power supply. I only used one conductor from the cat6 cable per wire. works great, very easy to read instructions; I don't understand the one review that has 2 wires going to the same port. I'm hoping I can simply but the wires from the 2nd target on top of the first and have no problems. as of now I'm a fan of this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great!Installed this unit to control a Direct TV receiver, and Blu Ray Disk Player hidden in the closet in my Game Room. I am using the Wire Home target mounted on the underside edge of the TV. It works perfectly. I recommend this unit for is ease on installation and set up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Won't Work With BlastersI initially purchased this hub with the WHPS 500 mA Power Supply (Part # 182-862), the WHIR4000 Target (Part # 182-870; No longer available), a WH2IRME dual mouse emitter (Part # 182-840) and a WHIREB (Part # 182-882) blaster. I connected the target to the hub with 55 ft of Cat 5e. I was disappointed to find that the flashers performed sporadically and this hub would not power the blaster. I upgraded to the WHHCPS 1.2 A PS (Part # 182-886) and the flashers worked as advertised. The bigger PS made a huge imrovement. I then replaced the original hub with the WHIRDH hub (Part # 182-884). The latter has outputs that can be switched to power a blaster. The mini blaster now works great (~ 15 ft range). Finally, I replaced the original target with the WHIR4005 (Part #182-878). The new target seems to have a little better reception angle. I am still experimenting with the blaster placement, but everything is now working. Bottom line, if you want to use a blaster emitter, this is not the hub you want. If you need more than a short wire run from the target to the hub, make sure you use a larger PS.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from IR Hub works great with 2 IR inputsI recently installed this IR hub as part of a whole-house remodel. I have two IR inputs: kitchen and living room. Each input is connected to the hub via Cat5e wiring and I'm using the 1.2A power supply. The kitchen run is ~80 feet and the living room run is ~15 feet. I found the instructions that come with the unit to be quite poorly written, but after a number of hours of head scratching, the system is working exactly as I'd hoped and reliably.The key problem I had is that I could only get 1 of the 2 IR inputs working (both were wired correctly, but if I plugged both in, neither would work). I am not using the status indicator optional additional power supply, and I eventually figured out that I needed to wire the ST (status) feeds coming from the inputs into the G (ground) port on the hub (i.e., both the G and ST feeds from the inputs wire to the G port on the hub). After that change, both inputs worked perfectly. If you use Cat5 to wire this unit, be sure to use *both* conductors of each twisted pair for each connection.I just ordered an additional power supply to power the status indicators on the IR inputs (I'm using a 1A power supply given the long run of Cat5e to the kitchen). When I install it, I'll move the ST inputs to the ST port on the hub and fingers-crossed, it all still works.Overall, I'm very pleased with the unit. With the exception of the ST/G mix-up, it was easy to wire (if you're familiar with Cat5e/Cat3 type LV wiring projects), the performance so far is great, and it is much cheaper than many other IR systems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extend a DISH ViP 622 DVR remoteI have a Dish ViP622 DVR in the bedroom. When I relocated the DVR into the closet, I needed a means to extend the IR remote. Parts Express to the rescue. I selected the WHIRH hub with a WHIR2005 low-profile target and a WH2IRME dual emitter. I had a 300ma 12vdc power supply in my junk box. I used about 25 of unshielded CAT5 to extend the target and every things works great. I am very pleased with the quality and I don t regret this purchase. By the way, free shipping and I order on Monday and I get it on Wednesday. Now that s how to please customers.

what corresponding cat5 colored wires (green, brown, blue, orange) connect to the V+, G, ST and IR?

Asked by: paul22ny
You can use any color combination, as long as it is the same on both ends.

The description says "a 12 VDC, 2A power supply is recommended for extremely long runs" What PS that PE sells here is the one recommended for this ? (I have a 150 ft cat5e run I'm considering trying this over) (I'm also considering the muxlab 500600)

Asked by: decman
I would recommend the power supply below.
