Infrared/Insteon Bridge Transceiver


EZUIRT – Model # 5010H

You can connect your A/V system or other IR devices to your home control system and consolidate your remote controls using EZUIRT.  You can control home elements like lights or thermostats using your TV remotes or turn on DVD players and cable boxes using wall switches.  No more fumbling for 3 different remotes just to enjoy your favorite TV show.

Smart Possibilities

  • Create a “Movie Mode” for your AV system that includes your lights, blinds, and thermostat
  • Turn on your entire AV system using a single keypad button
  • Unclutter your coffee table by consolidating remotes

Please Note: Due to manufacturer availability, this device will be equipped with a singleband PLM(with a passthrough outlet) instead of the dualband PLM.


  • Simple and rapid installation
  • Replaces IR543 or IR543H while providing Insteon compatibility
  • Easily learns X10, NEC, SONY and RC5 IR codes in any combination, and converts them into Insteon commands (40 groups) or messages
  • Converts an Insteon command into 1 to 8 IR codes (IR macros) for control of A/V equipment
  • Functions as an IR distribution hub with 4 jacks for up to 8 emitters
  • Built-in IR sensor and jack for an included external receiver
  • Supported by an ever-growing list of home automation applications from third parties
  • Built-in Talk-back LED confirms codes passed on to emitters
  • Configurable through the powerline via Insteon commands. Free MS Windows-XP utility from our Downloads section


EZUIRT is a transceiver that converts IR signals from a remote control to Insteon home automation commands, converts Insteon commands into IR signals and can distribute IR signals through up to 8 external emitters.  Enjoying your entertainment system involves more than just your TV and stereo boxes.  It’s a whole experience that requires optimal lighting, comfort levels and more.  EZUIRT recognizes this and allows you to fully meld your A/V control with your home automation system, reducing control points and remote clutter.  You can now control home elements like your lighting, blinds, thermostat and more right from your remote control as well as use home automation controllers like wall switches or keypads to activate your IR controlled equipment as well as overhead lighting, fans and more.

Your EZUIRT can learn and receive 4 distinct sets of IR codes and translate them to Insteon group commands.  These Insteon messages are repeated on both the powerline and over the air.  While it has an internal receiver for IR signals, it has a dedicated port for an external IR receiver, which gives you some flexibility when installing your EZUIRT.  It also has four dedicated ports for IR emitters.  Plugging an emitter into one of these ports and placing it over the IR eye of your A/V equipment allows you to convert Insteon commands into IR signals.  Since each port supports a dual emitter (sold in our store separately), you can control up to 8 IR receivers with a single Insteon command.  Its versatility makes it the perfect bridge from your home automation system and your A/V control.
