===

The Control Prog has 18 keys and 15 levels, allowing up to 241 different infrared commands to be sent. Levels are indicated by a green or red light in different positions on the keypad. Macro functions can be used so that selecting one key can send a series of different commands. It can be used to control any piece of equipment that is generally controlled by a remote control.

The Control Prog may be operated by pressing directly on the keypad or by using one or more switches. The scanning pattern and rate can be customised to suit the user. The device may also be controlled from a computer using mouse or keyboard commands. It is possible to use alternative computer access options such as a head mouse, voice input software or an alternative keyboard to control the Prog software. You will require the Control Prog as the transmitter with a specialised cable to link with the computer.

To setup the Control Prog, you use your existing remote control to train infrared signals into the Prog. If your Prog is connected to your computer, programming and functions can be setup and changed from the computer screen.
