IR Control Kit Retail

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 retail 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!

Note: Due to the requirements of shipping the battery in this kit, orders may take longer to process and therefore do not qualify for same-day shipping. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

IR Control Kit Retail Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Programming

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.

2 Programming

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.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

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.

2 Electrical Prototyping

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.

    Is there a IRremote library available for the ATtiny85? Sure would be nice!

  • Jake0313 / about 11 years ago / 1

    I just got this in the mail, and when I try to upload the example code onto my Arduino Uno, I get this error 'IRRECV' does not name a type. How can I fix this? Thanks!

    • James0110 / about 11 years ago / 1

      The example code refrences the 'IRremote' library. A link is provided in the comment section of the code or you can go here

    Where's the link to the OEM kit?

Very nice IR Remote Control

I like this little remote control. It worked well right away with the downloaded software. I installed it on an Arduino UNO R3 then setup the included parts on a temporary breadboard. Worked on the first try. I would give it five stars if I could put my own overlay on the remote with my own button names. I gave 4 stars but the title shows 5 .

Influence With Motor

Me and my friends set up this kit with a motor and a relay, and because of the frequency the remote operating, this remote was not working once the motor was turned on.
