Keene IR Anywhere IR Over IP Modules (pair) KIRA
The Keene IR Anywhere system allows you to send IR signals across a LAN (or the internet) in real-time.
Supplied as a pair, by default one module is set to receive an IR command and convert it to packet data. It then sends that data to the IP address of the receiving IR Anywhere module, and the receiving module decodes the data and re-transmits the IR to your device exactly the same as if you were standing in front of it.
Plug them in to your local network and use as Infra Red extenders or use them across the internet to control anything you like from anywhere in the world! Does slingbox not support your particular media box? No problem with KIRA.
The IR Anywhere modules are physically identical and can be software configured as either a receiver, a target, or stand alone operation. They will operate via LAN, and also via WAN assuming firewall and routers are correctly configured.
You can purchase extra modules so one target can receive signals from multiple receivers in many different locations.
The IR Anywhere modules are compatible with the 36 ~ 40K IR signals used by the vast majority of domestic AV equipment. A wide band IR receiver can also be used to extend the range to 20KHz ~ 120KHz if required.
The IR inputs and outputs are fully compatible with the existing Keene IR Distribution range so other styles of receivers and emitter wands can easily be incorporated.

This order code is for a pair of modules. If you would like a single module please see order code KIRAM. Controlling extra devices is no problem as the KIRA's single IR output can be increased by adding an IRBKIT IR distribution amplifier kit which gives up to five IR outputs (although you will also need a few extra IR emitters as well if you want to make use of all of the outputs). The IRBKIT is easy to connect to the KIRA, just use our KLDE6M jack cable (this is wired differently to a standard jack cable!) and you can have full control of all of your devices at the touch of a button.
