This is a new 5-button version of our hand-held remote, adding two extra control outputs that can be used to operate multiple devices independently from the same remote. If you only need to use 3 buttons (UP, STOP, DOWN) you can simply ignore the extra two round buttons.
The transmitter is designed for use with the latest GLA-CU-X3 remote control system and is only compatible with X3 type receivers. If you have an older GLA-CU-X2 receiver then please see the previous version here.
The higher-power transmitter circuit of this device allows for operation at up to 200M away (line of sight range, the range is reduced when operating through walls or objects). When planning locations for your transmitter and receiver bear in mind that metal (electrically conducting) objects or surfaces in particular tend to block RF signals, so avoid having these between the two devices.
Each hand-held remote is supplied with a transparent wall-holder, as pictured.
More information is provided below.
The remote is constructed from a tough plastic body 120x44x15mm in size. It features five buttons, three laid out in an UP, STOP, DOWN vertical format, and two additional buttons below. A blue LED at the top of the remote provides indication of when a button is pressed.
The remote transmits at 433MHz (suitable for use in the UK and EU, but NOT suitable for use in the USA) and takes a single cylindrical A23 12V battery for power (one is included inside each remote, ready for use).
Each remote, with battery, weighs 50g.
