Gefen Audio/Video Automation (GAVA) System Processor, Gefen EXT-GAVA


Control Your Home A/V and Lighting from your Mobile Device or Web Browser!

Gefen introduces its new GAVA Audio/Video Automation System- a new way to control your home. This new system works in conjunction with the Gefen PACS (Professional Automation Control System) and Mini-PACS hardware to control all key audio/video features in a home or commercial environment, as well as automation of lighting, temperature, window shades and more.

In a typical home entertainment scenario, users have multiple sources, such as Blu-ray players, Apple TV®, iTunes®, satellite or cable set-top boxes, and more, all connected in a system integrated with one or more displays. What makes the Gefen GAVA System unique, is its ability to control applications on a home or business network rather than on a stand-alone controller with dedicated cabling. This makes it ideal for retrofit or distributed systems. Not only that, the GAVA has the ability to connect over your network with Apple TV® 2 and computers (Mac or PC) running iTunes®, with display of Cover Art and song metadata.

The GAVA system is specifically designed to allow control through an interface that works with all smartphones and tablets today. It is optimized for the iPad®, iPod touch®, Android™ devices as well as other smarthphones and tablets.

GAVA is designed for quick installation- only a single cable is needed, and the Configuration Wizard allows a system to be installed and configured in less than half an hour!

How It Works
Connect the serial-controlled devices to the PACS RS-232 ports. Plug the IR emitters into the PACS and place the emitters close to the IR sensors of the A/V devices to be controlled. Connect trigger leads of various devices to the trigger outputs on the back panel. Connect the locking power supply to the PACS. Connect an Ethernet cable between the PACS and the local network.

Access the Web interface by typing in the correct IP address on your Web browser (default:, or by using Telnet. Configure the control interfaces (IR, RS-232, 12V DC triggers) via the Telnet/Web browser. Configure the Automation System to send commands to the PACS via IP.
