Greetings. Thank you for your expertise.

My system consists of a Defender 21006, 8 channel, with a hand held IR (Infrared?) remote. The surveillance system has never been wired/connected to the Internet.

Could my DVR be manipulated by an IR device (Blaster)? Currently experiencing resentments with the neighbors.

If I were to open up the DVR case and cut the wires to the internal IR eye, would this effect operation of the DVR? The Defender has an input for a mouse so I would still be

able to control my system.

Thank you for your time.

While we do not Support third-party hardware such as your Defender Recorder I can tell you that any device that has IR and accepts signals from an IR Remote is susceptible to this device that you mentioned as its simply a universal remote that tries different codes, you can basically do the same with a universal remote and set it to program mode and press the next code button which is usually the up arrow and this would either raise the volume or turn off the device you are programing it to , its not considered a hack its simply a small toy. Disconnecting the IR would do the trick, but cutting the IR may well void your warranty with its manufacturer or location that you purchased it with, it shouldn't interfere with normal operation, it will just impede you from using an IR remote.
