Description

Why you might want a Lindy CAT5e/6 IR extender & distributor

If you’ve hidden your audio-visual equipment away somewhere out of sight, maybe by putting it in a cabinet or even in a different room, then the chances are you’re going to have a problem controlling it. This problem is caused by the fact that most audio-visual equipment uses infra-red light to receive instructions from its remote control. If you think of your remote control as a torch then you need to be able to shine the torch at your audio-visual equipment in order to get it to work. Obviously you can’t do that if there is a cabinet door, wall or ceiling in the way! The Lindy CAT5e/6 IR extender & distributor solves that problem.

How the Lindy CAT5e/6 IR extender & distributor works

To control audio-visual equipment in a closed cupboard: Place the IR receiver in sight of your remote control and stick one IR emitter in front of the IR receiver of each audio-visual device you want to control. Simply operate your remote control whilst pointed at the IR repeater’s IR receiver and the IR emitters will relay the control signal to your equipment.

To control audio-visual equipment in a separate location: Connect the IR Extender Transmitter unit to the IR Extender Receiver unit using cat 5e or cat 6 cable. Stick one IR emitter in front of the IR receiver of each audio-visual device you want to control.
