The wireless extender is an adapter that takes the Z-Wave (RF) Technology signals from the Harmony 1000 and converts them to the IR signals needed by the components you are controlling. This allows you to control them without having a direct line of site for up to 100 feet away. This means you can be in the next room with the door closed and still be able to fast forward your music player to the next song. There are eight IR transmitters that can control up to the same fifteen devices that the Harmony 1000 has programming for.
The packaging of the Wireless Extender looks almost the same as the Harmony 1000, with the exception of the product picture. Included in the package is the Wireless Extender, the USB cable, four infrared transmitters, the software CD and the manuals.
The Wireless Extender is made up of a RF receiver with five ports on it. One port is the USB port which is used to connect to the computer in order to program the Wireless Extender. The four round ports are where the IR transmitters get plugged in.
The IR transmitters are thin wires that can be routed to hide them where you need to so that they can control the devices without being noticeable. There is one IR transmitters attached to each cable.
