This is a retired product, but fear not as there is a newer, better version available: RTL-11761
Replacement: None. We're currently sourcing a new IR remote, in the mean time this kit has been discontinued. This page is for reference only.
Description: Have you ever needed a cheap way to activate something from across the room? Infrared is still the cheapest way to wirelessly control a device. This kit includes everything you need to start playing around with IR control for your Arduino.
This kit includes a keychain 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!
Note: It's come to our attention that on some (if not most) models of TV, the channel buttons on this remote will act opposite to the way they're marked. Channel up changes the channel down and vice versa. If you're using this remote with your own embedded application, this shouldn't affect anything.
