It is easy enough to install. I am not too fond of the ends of the cables that attach to the components. It is meant to stick on the area where the IR eye should be for the component. It seems like they should have made these larger to make it easier to cover the IR eye. On my sat. receiver, I had to pull it off a couple of times before I could get it to work just right. After a week though, it still works poorly at times, so I guess I did not get it just right.
Secondly, the outer IR receiver also sticks on the cabinet. I thin this should be slight bigger as well. I have to point straight at it or my remote(s) commands do not get recognized. I cannot tell my it needs such a certain direction to work properly.
I do like this and the concept because it works well with the cabinet, but like I said it could use some improvements and with this price, they should make those improvements.
It was installed behind solid wood doors of a console. Now all the components are out of sight. It comes with 4 emitters, which allow you to connect four different components. The repeater has the ability to support four additional emitters to allow up to eight different component connections.
The emitters are black and since our console is very dark in color, the emitters are easily hidden. It worked perfectly out of the box. We've had absolutely no problems with this kit. I highly recommend this product.
The kit comes with a nice assortment of sticky emitter mounts with which you can attach the emitters to your various components. Just make sure you locate the "real" IR sensor on your component before sticking the mount on, the mounts are super sticky and hard to remove. (I found out the hard way).
If you use up the four emitters included with the kit, up to four more can be added, and are available on Amazon for about $8.00 a pair.
This kit has been working great in our Salamander Chameleon cabinet since we purchased it about a month ago.

Kit works fine but it arrived with a missing/broken plugin. Only three of the four plugins for the sensors cords are working, one was completely missing or broken.Published 11 months ago by JDI
Works great. We use them all the time on our installs. These other reviews are from amateurs. If installed correctly, they work 100% of the time. Don't be fooled by other comments.Published 14 months ago by adam silverman
Works but often remote turns on TV without cable box or vice versa. Hit or miss to turn both on at same time as should be done.Published on June 4, 2014 by M. G. Scheininger
