The one I' played with was ultr-sonic not IR.
I am often surprised at how little people actually seem to control with all of these control products. For most here is it just AV? I could use a universal remote for that (I know, I know, 2 way communication...)
Anything out there to do gas fireplace conrol beyond a relay? Relay is fine but I would like control over fan, flame height, etc without having to use the proprietary on wall keypads...
