Remote Extender Plus Receiver Kit
Extended Remote Control Freedom
Use the NextGen Remote Extender Plus to extend the reach of your remote’s signal up to 100 feet by using our patented radio frequency signaling system with almost any infrared AA or AAA remote control. With this remote extender, there’s no need for a direct line-of-sight to your component’s receiver, so you can feel free to hide bulky cables and component boxes (DVD, stereo, cable, etc.) behind closed cabinets, walls, or closet doors. Imagine a clutter-free entertainment area while still having full access to all of your tucked away components. With the NextGen Remote Extender Plus, this is possible! Use it to de-clutter entertainment stands and create the home theater that you’ve always wanted.
Easy, Plug & Play Set-Up
This start-up kit includes everything you’ll need to control a single component. The secret is in the specially designed batteries made for your component’s remote control. Simply swap out one of your component’s remote control’s batteries for the special RF Transmitter battery. It comes with 2 rechargeable 2/3 AAA batteries (which can be charged inside the receiver’s base), 1 RF transmitter battery sleeve, and 1 conversion sleeve to fit AA battery operated controllers. The Plus receiver is designed as a “plug and play” device, so all you need to do is install your RF Transmitter, plug in the unit, connect the Eye Infrared Emitter, and begin using.
For Additional Components
Each receiver unit has one Eye Infrared Emitter output that is capable of controlling up to 6 components (if used with the appropriate accessories). For each additional component, you will need to upgrade your single Eye Infrared Emitter by purchasing the 3 Eye Infrared Emitter Cable (giving you direct control of 3 components) or the 6 Eye Infrared Emitter Cable (giving you direct control of 6 components). You will also need an additional RF Transmitter for each new remote control being added to your system.
Available Frequencies (for adding units to multiple rooms/locations throughout your home or office)
The Remote Extender Plus Receiver Kit is available in 2 different frequencies: a 433 MHz and a 418 MHz. The reason for having 2 frequencies offered is to allow you to have up to 2 Remote Extender Plus Receiver Kits (one 433 MHz and one 418 MHz) in a single home or office without experiencing cross-interference. It is ideal for homes wanting 1 or 2 units. If you wish to have more than 2 NextGen Remote Extenders and you already have both available frequencies of the Plus receiver, check out the Remote Extender Genius. This will allow to you have an additional 5 remote extenders in a single 100 ft. radius (in total, you can have up to 7 NextGen remote extender receivers —each of the Plus units and 5 Genius units). For example, if you own a home or business with 7 rooms across a 100 ft. radius, you would be able to install a remote extender receiver in every room without experiencing cross-interference.
Please Note: If you wish to control an XM radio, you will need the 418 MHz frequency. If you wish to use a Harmony remote, you will need the 433 MHz frequency.
