Connections & Indicators
IP Activity LED
Twice per second = looking for another module or computer on the network.
Once every five seconds = found another module or computer on the network.
(see “advanced settings” for compatible computer information)
Will flash to confirm that data has been successfully transmitted to the target - in other words your message got there! (see "port forwarding" for more details)
IR Output Activity LED
Will flash whenever IR data is sent to the target.
IR Receiver Window
Aim your remote control at this.
If you get a problem with one of the modules, pressing the reset switch until the acknowledge light comes on will reboot the module with the current settings. Can also be used to perform a full factory reset as detailed on the reset link opposite.
Should always be illuminated whenever power is connected. Don't expect much to happen if it's not.
Should be connected to a hub switch or router, and not directly cabled to your computer network port. If you can't run a network cable to the desired location you can optionally connect your KiraMTR to your home network using powerline adapters or a wireless Ethernet Bridge.
External IR Input
Allows you to connect an external IR receiver to the module. This would allow you to place the KiraMTR module out of sight, inside a cabinet for example. The built-in IR receiver works within the (very common) 36 - 40KHz bandwidth. You can optionally connect a wideband IR receiver to cover the 20 - 120KHz bandwidth if required.
for future use.
Requires a minimum of 7v and maximum of 9v DC (regulated) at 200mA or greater, 2.1mm DC socket, centre positive.
