So I setup IR codes for my Lasko Fan with (IR remote.)
At first I didn't think it was working at all but then I thought maybe the signal is weak.
I have to have the puck less then 1.25 feet(0.33 meters) from the fan for it to work.
When I take it out of the case I can get about 2 feet.
Can I boast the signal the IR puts out on the PUCK.JS
If you're on 1v92 I don't think there's too much you can do. That firmware should have increased the IR output power as much as it can already. It's odd because when I was trying it with a normal IR receiver I was getting almost 2m with the new firmware I think.
You could try it with the silicone case off? That could make a big difference. If that helps then you could potentially put a small hole in the case above the IR diode.
There's also aiming to think about - with the case off, I seem to recall it emits to around 60 degrees - so if the Puck was on it's back you'd get far worse range than if it was pointing at your fan.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
