TitleWhy isn't my Savant Remote or Blaster controlling my devices from more than a few feet away?
Full Description
If your Savant Remote or Savant Blaster does not seem to be able to control your devices from more than a few feet away (after they've been properly installed), there are several possible steps to take to try to improve IR control range.
 
  1. Verify that the Savant Host and Remote Base are both plugged in and receiving power. For Blasters, verify that the batteries are correctly installed.
  2. Verify that the the status LEDs on each Savant device are solid green. 
  3. Ensure that the devices in question have a clear line-of-sight with the corresponding Blaster or Remote Base.
  4. Ensure that all plastic film wrapping has been removed from the Blaster, Host, and Remote Base. If the plastic is not removed, it will prevent proper IR control.
