Remote Control Extender

Convert Your TV Remote to RF


If you've just bought or rented a home or apartment, and would like to place multiple entertainment components inside the cabinet where the TV sits. But, the IR remotes that control each component emit an infrared signal that will not penetrate the cabinet.

Remote Control Extender

Pictured at right is the Remote Control Extender by Next Generation. The extender consists of a specially designed AAA battery that replaces a generic AAA battery inside your device remote. The RCE battery is shorter than a standard AAA battery and fits into a sleeve supplied with the unit to fit inside your remote just like a standard AAA battery. If your remote uses AA batteries, a special overcoat sleeve is also supplied and fits around the smaller battery and sleeve to replace a standard AA battery. Once you replace one of your remote's batteries with this device, and it picks up the hint of radio-frequency signals emitted by IR remotes, amplifies it, and sends it to the base station. The base station then emits the IR signal, effectively turning your IR remote into an RF model. The base station has a built-in charger for powering up the supplied custom batteries.

This device lets you go from room-to-room and control your components from up to 100 + feet away, with no direct line-of-sight needed. It even works through closet doors and closed entertainment system cabinets. Unlike other remote control extenders, there's no need to attach anything to the front of your remote, or to be limited to using it in one room. And by simply installing extra battery transmitters you can convert as many remotes as you like--works with virtually every remote control.

The basic Remote Control Extender includes the base station, two 2/3 AAA rechargeable batteries, an RF transmitter, an IR emitter, and the power supply. Note additional IR remotes can be added by purchasing another RF transmitter and by replacing the single head IR emitter with a 3-head or 6 head IR emitter.
