Description: Have you ever needed a cheap way to activate something from across the room? Infrared remotes are still the cheapest way to wirelessly control a device. We have designed the remote to be small, very simple, and low-cost. For the majority of the projects we build, we don’t need 34 buttons, we need one or two. It makes more sense to provide you with a cheap and easy to use remote.
Our infrared remote control offers buttons for four directions, power, select, and three optional use buttons (labled “A,” “B,” and “C”). Unfortunately we can’t guarantee that it will work with your Stuart Hughes' PrestigeHD Supreme Rose Edition though. Rather, we are carrying this remote to work with many of the more common IR receiver ICs.
This kit includes an infrared remote control, a couple infrared receivers, some resistors, and even some IR LEDs. Using this kit, you can control your Arduino with the included remote control, or use the receiver and LEDs to communicate from one board to another. You can even use your own remote control, or use the kit to control your TV or stereo!

Interesting kit giving simple low-cost experience of IR remote control.
I was looking into new methods for remote control of a project I’m working on, and this was exactly what I needed. Extremely simple to use, with tutorials galore on using each part in different combinations. I highly recommend it.
Excellent kit with easy examples that explain all the concepts you need to expand to much more complex things.
I used this product for a high school homework, and it just works great. It is not anything extraordinary or extremely complex, but it definitely delivers. I recommend it for people who already have a little bit of experience programming with arduino, because you'llbe able to understand what is going on with these components and take full advantage of them. But even if you have no experience programming whatsoever, you’ll be able to have fun with this product and definitely learn a lot.
