In my theatre
(downstairs) I have a TSU2000 and an IR543 controling
some lutron swithes.
I'm confused. The IR543 will send X-10 PLC commands over the powerlines to X-10 switches and modules but it will not control the Lutron switches so I assume you control them with IR.
NOW, I just remodeled the kitchen and bought a
TSU3000 and the RF extender. I want to control
a stack of electronics in the living room since
I can now hear them in the open floor plan and
I want to conrol all the lights with X10 in the
kitchen and the living room. I like the idea
of RF so I don't have to point at the box to do
it but I quess the RF extender will take care
of that issue..
You have probably reached the limit of what you can control with the IR543. You can use the IR output from the extender to control the IR543, an IR543AH (all 16 housecodes), or an Ocelot. You will need to teach the Ocelot IR codes and program it to respond to them.
If you are handy, you can convert the IR543 to an IR543AH
I've written a brief application note
comparing the IR543, IR543AH & Ocelot. It has links to other resources.
