Overview

Control your home theater video sources like Blu-Ray players, DVD players, TIVO, video receivers, and anything else that uses a standard IR remote control through walls and other obstructions by extending the IR signal wirelessly with this kit.

Want to send your IR signal to more than one Emitter? Purchase additional Emitters. Or do you want to send multiple IR signals to one Emitter? Purchase additional Receivers.

The Wireless Difference

The BlastIR Wireless does everything you want it to. Simplicity is our main focus with the BlastIR Wireless. Simply power them up and place the receiver next to your TV where you will point your remote. Place the emitter next to your equipment, pointed at the IR "eyes" of the device(s). The only thing left to do is enjoy, it is that simple. Below we have a video demonstrating the simplicty of this product and how to set it up.

Extend Remote Control Signals


Ir Guide

The BlastIR is designed to get your remote control's signal to where it needs to go. Since remote control signals (IR) need "line-of-sight" to work, you will need this extender if the equipment you're trying to control is not in sight. You'll need to extend your IR signals, especially if your TV is wall-mounted.

Sewell's IR extender kits provide all the parts you need in one convenient package to send an IR signal from the comfort of your couch to wherever you store your equipment.

How This Works

This kit includes an IR receiver, an IR emitter, and optional IR cables. The IR receiver and IR receiver cables are small inconspicuous devices that you can mount on your HDTV's bezel or anywhere else in the room where you will want to point your remote. They are small and very easy to hide, but must be in line-of-site to your couch (or wherever you will be sitting when using your remote control). These receivers receive your remote control's commands and sends the signal wirelessly to the IR emitter, which emits the signal to your devices.


BlastIR Wireless Diagram

The IR emitter half of this kit is simply placed in front of your equipment so that the signal is sent direct to your device. An IR emitter cable is included. This emitter blasts out the same IR signal, and you can tape it directly to your equipment or simply fix it to a nearby shelf or wall (or even the back of the door of your video closet).

Note: When you buy two or more

Troubleshooting

If you're having trouble with your BlastIR Wireless, there are some simple things you can do to troubleshoot the problem. This article will walk you through the steps. Even though we use a BlastIR classic, the same techniques apply.

NOTE: The BlastIR Wireless has a history of incompatibility with the Cisco Explorer cable boxes, particularly the 4000 and 8000 series.

Pros: Plug-n-Play, small footprint, works as advertised, great price

Cons: none

Other: My 75+ year old dad had no issues installing after builders put coaxial cable only in ground floor bedroom of large house, 70+ feet to upstairs den and works perfectly. Highly recommend.

Home or RV, Best Solution for IR Problems

DanaMc - 6/26/2016 1:13:11 PM

Pros: True "Plug & Play" installation. Literally plug in the power cord and set it in place at both locations - Audio/Video device and hidden receiver.

Cons: Should come with heat tolerant hook & loop pads to mount it securely. Best locations don't always mean resting on a counter or device. May need to be suspended under a cabinet, etc.

Other: This solved a HUGE problem in my RV. No way to run any wiring between the TV and the satellite receiver in the cabinet. Set this up crudely in less than 20 minutes. Works beautifully! Then just did some clean up to hide the power cord and secure the IR receiver and emitter. For other similar situations or if you just don't want to run wires, this is an absolute winner!

Pros: Reliable solution for IR remote's limited range

Cons:

Other: Initially I bought a competing product that was simply an IR repeater. That product did not work well for our situation, because I'm trying to control projectors approximately 30 feet away. The range limit of an IR remote control appears to be around 30 feet. So repeating a weak signal doesn't help much. After the inital purchase and disappointing result, I purchased this product. We are able to place the reciever very near where we use the remotes, and we placed the transmitter near the projectors. We haven't had the product very long yet, but thus far performance has been excellent.

does the trick with a few things to watch for

peter k - 5/17/2017 2:55:38 PM

Does exactly what it is suppose to... I would have appreciated if a USB power cord was included because the power supply is a bit bulky and when placed in back of the tv limits the tv from going back that last inch or so to the wall..
