Elite Screens can provide you with the binary codes for your remote controls. This comes in handy when programming universal remotes and integrating with other 3rd party systems.

[21:12] Customer: hi there

[21:12] Customer: looking for IR codes for the electric roll-up projection screens

[21:12]        Jaime: They are binary codes. Which ones do you need?

[21:12] Customer: all of them, up - down - stop

[21:12] Customer: I’m programming a universal remote working with Control4 and a new power max 135 tension

[21:12]        Jaime: UP: 1111 0000 0010 0101 1101 1101 1010 1001

[21:12]        Jaime: STOP: 1111 0000 0001 0101 1100 1100 0111 1000

[21:12]        Jaime: DOWN: 1111 0000 0100 0101 1110 1110 1100 1001

[21:12] Customer: Perfect, thanks

[21:12]        Jaime: This is for our latest electric screen IR receivers including the power max 135 tension. If you have any trouble, double-check the hardware with Control4 also just to make sure all the settings are right.

[21:13] Customer: Okay, so this is the binary code sequence for the power max 135 tension.

[21:14] Customer: What about the other non-elite hardware?

[21:14]        Jaime: All we have are the binary codes for our own brand. We don't have instructions for third party controls so I defer to those makers for their superior product expertise.

[21:15]        Jaime: Other 3rd product devices typically have a learning capability. Control4 is a good brand so it’s likely that they already have learning features on their products as well.

[21:15] Customer: Okay, I’ll load your binary codes and see how it goes.

[21:15]        Jaime: ok, give it a try

[21:15] Customer: Thanks, I’ll hit you back in just a few minutes.

[21: 15]        Jaime: I look forward to seeing what happens.

[21: 21] Customer: Perfect! We’re in business. Next, I’ll get started on that 12 volt trigger.

 [21: 21]        Jaime: the trigger system on our screens work on applied voltage

[21: 21] Customer: I might just want to create my own rj-45 and connect it to wireless relay

[21: 21]        Jaime: ok, sounds good.  Please send me pictures if you decide to do it.

[21: 21] Customer: Sounds like a plan. Thanks for the help

[21: 21]        Jaime: My pleasure. Thank you for choosing Elite Screens.
