About the Ethereal Helios AS-IRKIT

Kramer Crane

Control all of your A/V gear, even in an enclosed cabinet

Ethereal's Helios AS-IRKIT infrared repeater kit gives you easy remote control of your home theater receiver and other A/V gear placed in an enclosed cabinet, where your regular IR remote's signals can't reach. It includes four dual-emitter IR blasters that give you control of up to eight components.

Control all of your A/V gear, even in an enclosed cabinet

Ethereal's Helios AS-IRKIT infrared repeater kit gives you easy remote control of your home theater receiver and other A/V gear placed in an enclosed cabinet, where your regular IR remote's signals can't reach. It includes four dual-emitter IR blasters that give you control of up to eight components.

Simple, intuitive set up

The low-profile IR sensor gets mounted on your TV's bezel or stand within line of sight of your remotes. The sensor receives your remote's commands and relays them back to an IR hub hidden away inside the cabinet. The hub in turn sends the commands to each of the four dual-output infrared emitters, which you place in front of your components. Use any of your existing remote controls or a universal one to control your equipment.

Features

IR Repeater System: The AS-IRKIT IR Repeater System allows you to use an existing infrared (IR) remote control to operate up to 8 audio/video components located behind closed doors or walls in an entertainment cabinet or equipment closet. The AS-IRKIT IR Repeater System  consists of a hide-away repeater box, one 39" IR receiver, three 6.5' dual IR emitters, one 17' dual IR emitter, and a AC power adapter.

IR (Infrared) Replication: The AS-IRKIT IR Repeater System effectively replicates infrared signals (30-60kHz frequency range) from remote controls to reach your components (up to 8) stored remotely or hidden in enclosed cabinets.

Notes:
  • Protect the IR receiver from plasma screens and devices that emit too much low-frequency RF or an excess of ambient light, including direct sunlight, floodlights, and some halogen or fluorescent lamps.
  • You'll enjoy increased range in dimmer applications, as this IR repeater system has more sensitivity with less ambient light.

Hide-Away IR Repeater Box: The included hide-away IR repeater box features an IR receiver input and four IR emitter outputs. The IR receiver input & emitter outputs consist of 3.5mm minijack terminals. As the hub of the IR repeater system, it receives signals from the remotely located infrared receiver and channels them to the remotely located IR emitters and your components. The hide-away IR repeater box can be mounted in a discreet location on top of furniture or next to a TV to replicate infrared signals from your IR remote controls.

Note: The hide-away IR repeater box measures 4.1875" (w) x 2.0625" (h) x 1.0625" (d).

IR Receiver: The AS-IRKIT IR Repeater System includes one IR receiver which features an attached 39" cable that is terminated by a male 3.5mm connector that plugs into the hide-away IR repeater box. The "eye" of the IR receiver is located in the tip of the IR receiver and should be facing the area from which you will be using your remote controls. Peel back the tape on the bottom of the IR receiver to stick to a clean, flat surface.

Note: The IR receiver measures 1.1875" (w) x 1.0625" (h) x 0.625" (d).

Four Dual IR Emitters: The AS-IRKIT IR Repeater System comes with a total four dual IR emitters; there is one 17' dual IR emitter and three 6.5' dual IR emitters. Each emitter is terminated by a male 3.5mm connector that plugs into the hide-away IR repeater box. The dual IR emitters should be attached directly over your components' IR receptors using the integrated peel-&-stick tape. If you prefer, you can attach the dual IR emitters to a shelf so that it is facing the components' IR eyes and within 3" of the eye.

Note: The dual IR emitters measure 0.5" (w) x 0.5" (h) x 0.75" (d).

Power Requirements: The hide-away IR repeater box operates off of standard household current using the supplied AC power adapter with 47" DC cord.

  • Input: 120-240V~50/60Hz, 0.3A
  • Output: 5V DC, 5000mA

Q
My equipment is in my basement. Using this unit, can I control the equipment from the floor, directly above the basement?

I can't tell you whether it would work through a floor/ceiling structure. I used mine for my TV in a partially enclosed built in furniture and it works fine, but you have to aim your remote at the IR sending unit to make it work.

Yes BUT you must have the IR sensor end upstairs where can can point to it. I have mine in a separate room so all I had to do was bring the sensor part out to the Den area and control all of my equipment on the other side of the door you however would have to have the sensor located upstairs that may mean that you drill hole somewhere near your baseboard so you can install it there. I also bought an extension cable I bought a 10 foot cable that matched up with the sensor and. I also believe I bought that through Amazon

Can you use a wall plate for the sensor?

I don't know. With infrared sensors, which these are, there has to be "line of sight" transmission capability.

What is the distance this device works from? 25 feet? 50 feet?

I doubt it. My living room is about 20ft across and I have trouble getting it to pick up sometimes. Rather disappointing.
thomas  Apr 07, 2018

About 18 feet max with original wires only and main box between
alexandre  Apr 06, 2018

Sorry; I do not know because we have used the device only from a distance I judge to be less than 15 feet. rip

Q
Is there any way to add a cord extension for the IR receiver or emitters?

I had to cut and splice the wires to get them into my cabinet. You could buy wire at a box store and make it any length you want if you are up for the diy. Approx 22ga stranded wire
thomas  Apr 07, 2018
A
Not that I am aware of. The manufacturer may offer longer cords.
