The IR Anywhere modules are all physically identical and can be software configured to act as either a receiver, as a target or as a stand alone.

A receiver will receive an IR command, convert it to packet data and send that data to a pre-determined IP address (usually another module).

A target module will decode the received data and retransmit the IR as originally received. Once correctly configured, one target can receive data from multiple receivers.

A stand alone module will operate as a target receiver without attempting to locate a compatible PC or other module on the local network.

The modules will operate via LAN, and also via WAN assuming firewall and routers are correctly configured.

PC/Mac software is available for initial configuration. Enhanced scheduling software and other 3rd party applications are also in development.

The modules are 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 so other styles of receivers and emitter wands can easily be incorporated.

How you configure the modules will depend largely upon how you wish to use them in operation. You can use them as a transmit/receive pair across a local network or across the internet, or a module can be configured to respond to commands from a computer or other compatible device.

To sum up the differences:

Target and receiver modules are expected to be used as destination and source in a two (or more) module system.

A stand alone module is expected to be used in a system where the network code is sent from a PC or hand held device such as a phone or PDA.
