PCI card is a full featured, full
learning Infrared (IR) Transceiver that allows a personal
computer to control virtually any IR appliance including
VCR's, DVD's, DSS's, Stereo Surround Sound Systems and
other common IR devices.
The IR500 is heuristic device that can learn any
IR remote. Simply point the desired IR remote toward the front of
the unit, depress each key on the remote, and the IR500 will learn
and store the exact IR profile of each key to your PC's hard
drive. There is no limitation to the number of IR remotes the
IR500 can learn and store.
Once an IR remote profile is learned and stored, a
simple software interface enables your PC to send the appropriate
IR "data packet", command to the IR500. The IR500
converts the "data packet" into the signal necessary to
control the given appliance. Now your PC is in full control of
your appliances! The IR500 can also receive IR Signals from
handheld remotes, decode the signal and pass them on to the PC in
real-time. This means you can launch PC applications, home
automation functions, macros for launching multimedia sequences
and more, with a handheld remote! The IR500 is a simple device
that solves the myriad of IR compatibility and software issues
common to home and office automation installations.
The IR500 comes with Windows and Linux application
software to learn, store and transmit IR profiles captured from
handheld remotes. It also functions well with standard
communications programs such as Hyperterm.
