Primer Tutorials for Arduino IR Remote Cloning and Keyboard Simulation

Hackaday

We’ve featured loads of IR Arduino projects and they are all exciting and unique. The projects spring from a specific need or problem where a custom infrared remote control is the solution. [Rick’s] double feature we’re sharing in this article is no exception, but what is interesting and different about [Rick’s] projects is his careful and deliberate tutorial delivery on how to copy infrared remote codes, store the codes with a flavor of Arduino and then either transmit or receive the codes to control devices.

In the case of his space heater an Arduino was used to record and later retransmit the “power on” IR code to the heater before he awakes on a cold morning. This way his room is toasty warm before he has to climb out from under the covers, which has the added benefit of saving the cost of running the heater all night. Brilliant idea…

  1. Thanks for this fascinating little tutorial!

      no problem, I actually built this and had a little trouble using IR LEDs from a tv remote due to them pulling more power than usual, so I couldnt get it to transmit back out. It was easily fixed by using a darlington pair npn transistor to boost it up for the LED, then it worked fine.
