KiraQ Generation 2
Control Solution for SkyQ & SkyHD
The KiraQ Gen2 provides an easy way to independantly control up to 10 Sky boxes and eliminates the need to attach IR emitters to the fascia. It also ensures that only the desired receiver will receive the control signal, ideal for larger installations with multiple receivers where IR bleed can often cause issues.
There are three modes of operation:
In this mode all received IR commands are converted to IP and sent to the designated IP address of the system to be controlled. The Infra red can be from a remote control aimed directly at a receiver connected to the module or as a cabled input from the output of another system such as an extender or matrix switcher. As there is no common standard for IR emitters a direct cabled connection will need to be routed via a KIRT (IR Translator) to ensure that the KIRAQ receives the IR information correctly.
In this mode RS232 commands are converted to IP and sent to the designated IP address of the system to be controlled. The optional expansion module is required for this mode.
Commands can be issued simply by accessing the built in web pages via any device with a browser, and the open API structure means it can integrate seamlessly with a number of other IP control systems and apps for tables and smart phones.
