This kit enables you extend the distance between the IR Receiver and IR Distribution block. This cable can be run in-wall, underneath/behind baseboards, in a crawlspace or attic, etc. . Use this kit if your TV and media closet are farther than 10' apart (10' is the length of cable that comes with the IR receiver). If 50' is too much, simply trim the cable to the correct length using a pair of wire cutters.
It is extremely easy to wire and we include a color-coded hookup diagram. The only tools required are a pair of pliers (to compress the splice connectors) and small wire strippers (or a knife) to strip the CAT-5 wire.
This kit includes the following:
- CAT-5E cable (to extend between the IR receiver and the distribution block)
- Splice Connectors (QTY: 8) - to join the IR Receiver wires and the CAT-5E wires together
- Length of CAT-5 cable included: 50'
We include extra splice connectors to cover you in the case of a wiring mistake or "do-over" - only 4 are required. No stripping of the wire is required for these splices, simply insert both wires into the splice and compress the orange cap using a pair of pliers.
