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 chose this remote because it’s small, very simple, and low-cost.
With this cheap infrared controller, you can easily make remote control projects such as the Arduino IR Remote receiver thanks to the open-hardware community, there are also some IR libraries such the joshuajnoble IR library for you to make everything in your house to be remote-control.
This mini infrared wireless remote control kit consists of ultra-thin infrared remote control and 38KHz infrared receiver module. This mini slim infrared remote control has 20 function keys. Its transmit distances up to 8 meters. Ideal for handling a variety of equipment indoors.
IR receiver module can receive standard 38KHz modulation remote control signal. You can decode the remote control signal using the Arduino. You can design a variety of remote control robots and interactive works.
Note: The unit does not come with a coin cell battery.
