Hot Link Pro Remote Control Booster Extends the Range of Remote Controls to 75 feet!
If your AV equipment is housed behind an opaque cabinet door or in a closet, IR remote signals will not be able to reach it. Hot Link Pro solves this problem by routing the IR signals into the closed cabinet or closet, effectively connecting the AV equipment’s IR receiver and transmitter of your remote control. This allows you to keep equipment out of sight and out of reach of inquisitive little fingers, dust, and dirt. The high sensitivity of the Hot Link Pro IR receiver circuit also acts as a remote control booster, extending the range of your remotes.
- Controls hidden AV equipment using IR remotes behind opaque doors
- Remote control booster doubles remote-to-eye distance for up to 6 AV components
- One Eye fits all applications. Works with virtually all Plasma and LCD TVs, satellite and cable receivers and other AV gear and can be mounted anywhere. Does NOT need line of sight and can be mounted on BACK of TV
- Blue “Talk-Back” LED confirms receipt of commands between the IR receiver and transmitter
Hot Link’s IR Eye can be mounted virtually anywhere (on the back of flat panel displays, behind door slots, speaker grills, cabinets and wall plates without modification or under toe kicks and sub-woofer speakers). It is more than 4 times as sensitive as standard IR receiver circuits. Hot Link Eye is broadband, eliminating the need for special receivers at different frequencies and is the absolute best at mitigating IR interference from plasma and LED TVs.
What Hot Link Pro does
Hot Link Pro is a patented product that both allows equipment to be hidden and doubles the distance of remote controls by enhancing IR receiver circuit sensitivity. It is generally sold as a “single-box solution” for installers and end users. It is “radio-less” and has no attachments to remotes, no batteries, no antennas and no exposed cables to trip over. Hot Link hides inside the cabinet and “sees” even the weakest signals from remotes. It is very compatible with LCD and Plasma TVs when the Eye is mounted out of sight, just behind the display. With accessories, Hot Link Pro’s sensors and emitters can be easily extended. Repeats carrier frequencies 18Khz to 120Khz. Hot Link Pro IR remote control extender system is compatible with a wide range of AV and home theater equipment, Even IR Computer Mouse and Keyboards which used to require IR receiver USB devices. Now they can be used twice as far away.
Super Sensitive IR Receiving Eye:
While Hot Link is an effective single-box solution for intra-cabinet repeating, it also enhances the distance of remotes by being more sensitive at the receiving end rather than by adding attachments to the remote or converting to radio waves. Hot Link Pro doubles the distance of remotes up to 70 feet. In total darkness it may go up to 100 feet. But the really pleasing feature of all this supersensitivity is that the Eye does not have to be in direct line of sight! The Eye or “target” can be hidden behind a speaker grill, under a toe-kick, or behind or on top of a cabinet or looking through the slot of a door or behind a speaker grill. It does not have to be direct line of sight. The Eye merely needs to be in the same room as the remote. This means no drilling of holes in expensive cabinets and no fishing or aiming of the remote by the home theater enthusiast. We call this “radioless” technology. See article, When IR is Superior to RF.
Eye Mounting Unlimited:
Our patented infrared receiver Eye’s supersensitivity allows the Eye to see even the weakest signals from your remote. To obtain twice the distance the Eye is actually 4 times as sensitive. As the distance between the remote and the Eye increases by one increment the power density is reduced by 4 times. When placed in a dark environment the Eye actually increases sensitivity to remote pulses up to almost 6 times! When the Hot Link Pro Eye is placed behind a speaker grill, yes the grill “apertures” the remote signal and it also apertures the ambient light causing the Eye to become more sensitive to pulsed light produced by remote control signals. This means that in general there is usually no loss and some increase in the remote control’s operating range. AND THE EYE IS HIDDEN! Hot Link is based in the United States.
