Clean home theater setups (especially setups with wall-mounted TVs) can require you to store your A/V in a remote place like a closet or another room. Since your IR remote controls require line-of-sight to control your equipment, you won't be able to use them unless you can send the signal to your equipment with an extender.
This IR Receiver is used with any combination of different IR Emitters and connecting blocks. The receiver is mounted on or near your TV. If you're looking to expand your existing IR Extension setup then this is what you're looking for. If you're starting from square one, check out our complete IR Receiver Kits.
The Keystone IR Receiver connects via 3-conductor cable (Such as Cat5e/6). Once everything is installed, all that will be visible is the wall plate.
Fits Standard Keystone Wall Plates
The Keystone IR Receiver fits all standard rectangular NEMA keystones. Making it easy to seamlessly integrate it into an existing setup. (Wall plates sold separate)
Works with BlastIR Classic. Simply terminate the corresponding wires to the Terminal block on the BlastIR Classic directly. No additional adapters needed.

I installed this under a wall-mounted TV in order to adjust volume on my AVR, located in a nearby closet. There's a blue LED that lights up when it detects IR, which is a nice touch of tech. The setup looks clean and works perfectly.
Works great, looks great, and plenty of room for expansion!
Build quality is good but it did not work with my HK stereo receiver.
