IR Blaster & Learning Remote - Project Day

We'll be using any of Raspberry pi, Arduino or ESP8266 to drive some infra-red LEDs and infra-red detectors to build a infra-red transmitter and receiver.

This will allow you to learn remote control commands and reuse them, and to control your own infra-red devices.

What to bring?

If you want to build your own remote alongside us, which will be much more fun, then here's a list of parts you might want to collect together.

  • Laptop
  • One or some of Raspberry pi, Arduino or ESP8266(in a form factor that's easy to connect LEDs)
  • IR LEDs
  • IR receivers
  • Resistors for the above components as required
