The IR500P 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
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
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.
