Excellent products. running.... Review by Steve B
Excellent products. Currently running 4 units, 3 as IR receivers next to TVs and 1 as a sender at a central hub, Using these with original OEM remotes for 2 different units as well as DemoPad on the iPad. Great system with great potential to be used in thousands of different ways! (Posted on 21/10/2014)
Initial setup a.... Review by Paul
Initial setup took a little while, this was due to changing the unit address, which were on the 192.168.1. address. It's not a sensible idea to leave your network on this address because this will be the first address that will be looked for if a hacker gets beyond your firewall. The units do not report any problems if their address is the same as any other managed network equipment, so be careful when addressing your equipment.
Other than the initial setup these units are a breeze.
Remember if you are using this equipment with Virgin kit you will need a wide band receiver, which in my case I would have put in place just for aesthetic quality(our standard receiver controls Virgin, (Edit- We really don't recommend using a wideband unless specifically required, please contact us if unsure-Keene Sales)
A good feature to have on the software side would be a way of confirming that the units are talking to each other, though this is covered by counting LED blink, if the units are not in view this is a hassle.
Overall a brilliant piece of equipment.

I bought modules.... Review by Richard M
I bought these modules to work with the Touch - IR software and must say that they work really well together. The price is more competitive when compared to other similar products and if you have a technical issue there is somebody who can help at the end of the phone. The added pronto code converter is a real help when downloading discrete codes which are freely available on the internet. Once set-up the system does not require a PC to be running.

What I like.... Review by Melloware
What I really like about the KIRA is that it just sits anywhere on your LAN and blasts and receives using UDP Packets. Unlike the USB-UIRT which has a limit on how long a USB cable can be from the PC, the KIRA can literally be anywhere in your house as long as its plugged into an Ethernet jack. That way if you have your whole HTPC hidden in a closet the KIRA can be in the TV room with the AV equip. (Posted on 21/10/2014)

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers (12)

Q: If there are multiple target modules on the network, can the target be specified in each receiver using the Hostname or can it only be done by IP address? If the latter,then I guess it can only work with static IP addresses, not DHCP-assigned ones, as a reboot will cause problems.

Posted On: 18/04/2012 By: Chris

A: Basically you are correct the Target is specified by IP address not hostname. So if the Target modules are using DHCP there would be a possibility of getting assigned a different name after a power fail or similar. You could let the modules get a DHCP address then switch off DHCP on the modules options web page, and save - that would save the setting with the current IP address but that is a bit naughty as the IP address would be within the DHCP range of addresses. If you want to reach all Targets you can set the last byte of the Target address to 255 and the module will broadcast over the local network. All targets on that network should respond
Q: Hi, Can an external Ir receivers (Such as the facia receivers in your distribution kits) be plugged into these units instead of having the module on show? Cheers Paul

Posted On: 13/07/2010 By: Eleftherios Simotas
