Have you ever needed an easy and effective way to activate electronics from across the room? Infrared remotes are still the cheapest way to wirelessly control a device. We have designed the remote in this kit to be small, very simple, and low-cost. For the majority of the projects we build, we don't need 34 buttons, we only 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 IR remote control, a couple of 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!
Note: Due to the requirements of shipping the batteries in this kit, orders may take longer to process and therefore do not qualify for same-day shipping. Additionally, these batteries can not be shipped via Ground or Economy methods to Alaska or Hawaii. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.

I bought this product to control a little two-wheel smart car rover that I built. It works well. The infrared receiver is attached to the rover with carpet tape and detects a signal from the remote easily as long as the remote is anywhere within line-of-sight. The rover is autonomous so I use the remote primarily to start and stop the rover. I like the remote's simplicity.
