Extend your remote's reach with this two-piece system from Powermid. It can transmit your remote's signals through walls, floors, and furniture. It's perfect for folks who want to conceal their A/V gear inside a cabinet or closet for a clean, stylish look. And with its 100-foot range, Powermid is also a great option for multi-room audio/video systems.
How Powermid works
When you press a command like "play" on your remote, the transmitter changes the IR signal to an RF (radio frequency) signal, and sends it to the receiver positioned in front of your A/V gear. Unlike IR signals, RF signals don't require line-of-sight, and can travel through floors, walls, and cabinets. Once the receiver picks up the RF signal, it translates it back to IR. Then it passes your "play" command on to your A/V gear in one big IR blast.
Expanding your Powermid system
You can expand this flexible setup to accommodate additional rooms. If you'd like to control components located in multiple areas of your house from one room, you can install additional Powermid receivers. If you'd like to control your A/V gear from multiple rooms around your house, as in a multi-room A/V system, you can install additional Powermid transmitters.
If your A/V gear is housed in a cabinet that's too shallow to accommodate the receiver, you can use the compact Powermid extender to send IR signals to those components. The extender is also handy if your TV and A/V components are located in separate areas of the room.
