The Control 4 remote control allows you controlling several devices in your environment in a simple way. Once programmed, you can activate each function by directly pressing the keys on the remote.
a) All Enabler receivers. These allow you to control common elements around the home, such as lights, blinds, alarms, doors, beds, etc.
b) All devices around the home operated by remote controls, including stereos, televisions, DVD players, etc.
What is the BJ system?
The BJ system is a system that allows you to control your home wirelessly. There are two elements to the BJ system: the remote controls and the receivers.
BJ system controls can be used to control different types of receivers, including those for alarms, plug sockets, bed control, blinds, etc.
They can also control any equipment in your home that is already operated by a remote control via infrared.
This remote has an ergonomic keypad with four buttons, an infrared port, LED status indicator, reset input and input for battery charging. It is powered by a battery that can be recharged by connecting it directly to the USB port of a computer using the charger supplied with the remote control.
Two functions can be associated to each button, with the exception of the scene change button. So, with this remote, you can programme up to 6 different functions in total (7 in “Shift change scene mode”). If you do not want to use both scenes, you can programme functions on the four buttons of the remote.
To get the most out of your remote, you need to programme each key (button) with the desired functions. For example, you could set off an alarm or turn up the volume on the television by pressing ⋆, depending on which function you recorded.
Follow these steps to enable a device:
The remote uses radio frequency signals to control Enabler receivers, so you can activate the receiver without the need for a direct line of sight between the remote and the receiver.
Infrared signals are used to control devices operated by remote controls that have been copied to the sequential direct remote control. In this case, then, there must be a direct line of sight between the remote control and the receiver, just as there would with the original remote control.
A scene is a set of programmable keys (buttons) on the remote. To increase the number of devices controlled, you can change the scene on the remote. When the remote changes scene, the functions programmed in the cells are stored but are no longer active. There are trhee programmable cells in each scene on this remote and a total of two scenes. This means that you can programme up to 6 different functions.
To change the scene, activate the key that you programmed for changing the scene, which is the key in which code 300 was recorded (see “Programming”).
The current scene of the remote is indicated by the colour of the LED when you press on a key. If you are in scene 1, the LED will turn red any time you press a key, whereas if you are in scene 2, it will turn green.
IMPORTANT: You must activate the change of scene key every time you want to change the scene. Until this key is activated, the remote will remain permanently in the selected scene. Therefore, if you record code 300 in a key in scene 1 in order to switch to scene 2, you will need to record the same code in a key in scene 2 to be able to go back to scene 1 again.
Once a scene has been selected, the basic programming and operation of the remote is as described in section 1.
When the remote is in the second scene, the LED will flash green.
How a device is programmed depends on the type of equipment you wish to control, i.e. whether it is an Enabler receiver or a device that works with infrared (devices that already have a remote control, like televisions, DVD players, stereos, etc.).
To control Enabler receivers, you must assign the RF code identifying the receiver to the key on the remote that will be used to operate with this receiver.
What is an RF code?
For a remote to control the various receivers you have installed, each receiver must be identified by a code that differentiates it from the others. Hence, each receiver has an “RF code selector” that allows you to assign a code to it. By programming this code in the Control remote, you can control each of the receivers you have installed. See the user manual of the receiver you wish to control to find out its RF code.
Once you have the information on the code to programme, follow these steps:
IMPORTANT: The RF code programmed into the remote must always be a three-digit number, so if the code indicated for the receiver only has two digits, add a 0 in front. For example, if you have a receiver for a socket with the code 37, programme the remote with the code 037.
It is a good idea to use the programming template when programming as it indicates the numbers and functions associated with each key.
In the following example, we will programme the ⋆ key in scene 1 to control an alarm receiver with an “RF code” of 25. The programming steps are as follows:
All keys can be programmed with two functions except for the one used to change scenes (this can be the ▲ key or any other key that has been programmed to change the scene).
Without releasing the button, use something pointed to press and release the reset button (on the back of the remote).
The LED will turn green, indicating that the remote is ready for a function to be programmed in the selected key.
In the example given (code 025), these would be entered as follows:
1) Press the ⋆ button 0 times
2) Press the ■button 2 times
3) Press the ● button 5 times
Alternatively, press and hold the Record button until the grenn led turns on, to save the code in scene 2.
After completing this action, the remote goes into standby mode.
IMPORTANT: If the remote freezes while programming or you wish to cancel it, you can exit programming by pressing the Reset input.
NOTE: Code 255 cancels all functions assigned to a key.
Prepare the remote you want to duplicate. Make sure that there are no other infrared devices switched on in the room (some laptops, mobile telephones and other devices could interfere with the recording process).
When duplicating a remote control for a device, you need to remember that each key on the remote can only be programmed with a single function of the remote control of the device. For example, if you wish to control the volume of a stereo system, you need to record the “volume up” function on one key and the “volume down” function on another.
To programme an infrared function, follow steps 1 and 2 of the previous section for RF code recording, and then:
1) Point the remote control that you wish to duplicate at the “infrared recording” port of the sequential direct remote control and press the button on the remote that you wish to duplicate.
2) When the control has stored the function of the other remote, the LED will switch itself off, indicating that programming has ended.
Code 400: This code is used to record infrared signals instead of code 000 when we want the device to perform the programmed action for as long as the key is pressed.
For example, if the action recorded is “turn up the volume on the television,” if code 000 was used, when you press the button where the signal was recorded, the volume on the television will be turned up one level. However, if you used code 400, the remote continues the action, so the volume will continue to rise until you release the button.
Code 500: This code is used for the dual recording of the infrared signal. This is a useful feature because the infrared signal emitted by some consumer devices can change even when the same button is pressed (e.g. the same button switches the television “on” and “off”). With this code, you can record the different signals emitted by the device to resolve situations where the recorded action would otherwise only work half of the time.
To begin, record the first press of the button on the remote control you wish to copy using code 000 and then record the second time it is pressed using code 500.
NOTE: Check that they were recorded correctly; if not, repeat the process until they are recorded correctly. If after five attempts you have not managed it, contact your dealer as it may be possible that the two remotes are incompatible.
Code 800: This code is used to perform the action recorded in a key in scene 2 in the next press of a key. The battery LED flashes green to indicate the change of scene. After the second keystroke, the remote automatically returns to scene 1.
