How to start with remote control ?

Posted on
  • I would like to control my Espruino with one of those cheap remote controls(used for TV etc.).
    Is there any experience with that, or a good startingpoint ?
    There is something available on Arduino, but my knowledge is poor on that.
    BTW, thats why I love Espruino, Javascript is much nicer, at least for me.

  • JumJum,
    Here you can find a tutorial using an infrared remote control with espruino.
    And here is an interesting document from Vishay about the basics of infrared communication.

  • Hello tickTock,
    thanks a lot.
    Already got it working.
    Great and easy to follow introduction.

  • Great! Did you end up using the module or did you write your own?

  • I used the tutorial mainly to have a first starting point.
    Which is assign code to button pressed.
    Its a small keyboard having numbers, arrows and an ok button only.
    Plan is to use it for my garden to direct something like a waterpistol.
    For that 2 servos will be used. One day next summer, it will be up and running, thats the plan.
