Could be the pluck IR emiter too weak?

  • Hi,

    I'd like to control my IR cheap bulb with Puck.js, the bulb works fine, it can be controlled with the remote.

    The problem is the Puck.js, I can see some IR light when I trigger the code. I tryed different codes some recorded by myself some from internet (quite similar), I tried different buttons, red, blue, on, off... I tried to put the puck quite close.

    Is perhaps Puck.jsjust weak? I'm doing something wrong?

  • I did try to imitate the TV remote and it doesnt work. Perhaps I should build an arduino IR receptor to debug what is Puk.js sending?

  • Is your firmware up to date on the Puck? I know some earlier Puck.js v2 firmwares had some issues where I think they had the drive polarity wrong
