Here’s a neat combination of hardware and software to allow you to control your AV system from your iOS device. The Demopad app provides the customisable front end to your control set-up, while the Keene KIRA128 IP to infra-red module allows you to learn, store and send the commands.
Using Keene Electronic’s software, you can learn & store up to 128 infra-red codes in the KIRA128 device, and the DemoControl Lite app can activate any of these commands from a generic user interface (containing a TV, Set Top Box & DVD remote control)
The KIRA128 is an IP based network device compatible with 36-40K IR signals which covers the majority of domestic AV equipment. A wide band IR receiver can be purchased separately that will extend the range to cover 20KHz to 120KHz if required. The IR Inputs and outputs are fully compatible with the Keene IR Distribution range allowing a wide range of different receivers and emitter wands to be incorporated.
For a total outlay of under £80 this combination offers an unprecedented level of convenience for any iPhone owner.
