The CommandFusion IR Blaster is a multi-function IR device, capable of both sending and receiving IR signals.
Using the IR receivers (on-board or via an external receiver input) you can trigger rules within the CFLink network, essentially using macros to control anything within the CFLink network.
The IR Blaster Quick Reference Guide provides the basic information required to get started on a printable, black and white document that can be easily taken with you to a job site. Find the IR Blaster Quick Reference Guide here.
The IR Blaster can be used to recognize incoming IR codes, then trigger a macro of actions on the CFLink bus or on the IR Blaster itself, such as transmit another IR code from the internal blasters. We call this feature ‘IR Rules’.
See the IR Rules guide to see how to implement or to learn more about this feature.
The information panel can be found on the top of the IR Blaster.
The front and sides of the IR Blaster contain high power IR emitters, capable of flooding a room with IR.
The front of the IR Blaster contains an IR receiver.
An IR emitter can be plugged in via the first 3.5mm mono jack, allowing a second channel of directional IR output.
An external IR Receiver can be plugged in via the second 3.5mm jack.
You can use an IR receiver module such as the following one from Vishay:
TSOP4838 - http://www.vishay.com/docs/82459/tsop48.pdf
There is no receiver shipped with the unit.
The 5-pin CFLink connector is used to communicate with other CFLink devices on the network.
The MicroSD slot is used to expand the on-board memory via MicroSD cards.
