IR Repeater/ Range extension suggestions

Thu Apr 27, 2017 1:02 am

So I've got an IR shield on my Pi3 thats controlling a few things in my living room with home-assistant, but I've also got a few things in the bedroom that would be cool to control with it, problem is the range. I was thinking an IR repeater would do the trick, but I haven't found one online yet that seems like it would do the trick. I could buy another Pi3 with the shield and send the commands to it I suppose, but it seemed the more expensive route. Anybody have any suggestions of what I might be able to do to increase the range of my IR system?

Look at the new Pi Zero W for the extra room. The Pi Zero W has a similar Wifi range and is really changing the way we look at home automation.
