Lindy IR over Cat5 extender kitThe Lindy IR over Cat5 extender kit lets you control audio-visual devices, using their existing infra-red (IR) remote controls or a universal remote control, in situations where the devices are hidden out of sight (for example, in a closed cabinet or in a different room).
Why you might want a Lindy IR over Cat5 extender kit
If you’ve hidden your audio-visual equipment away somewhere out of sight, maybe by putting it in a cabinet or even just behind a television screen, 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 IR over Cat5 extender kit solves that problem.
How the Lindy IR over Cat5 extender kit works
The Lindy IR repeater cable comprises an IR receiver, an IR over CAT5 Extender, an IR over CAT5 Receiver and an IR emitter.
The IR receiver connects to the IR over CAT5 Extender and the IR emitter connects to the IR over CAT5 Receiver.
Connect the IR over CAT5 Extender to the IR over CAT5 Receiver using CAT5/6/7 (network) cable.
Place the IR receiver in sight of your own remote control, and the IR emitter directly over the IR receiver of the audio-visual device you want to control.
Simply operate your remote control whilst pointed at the IR receiver and the IR emitter will relay the control signal to your equipment.
