Infrared Control is an amazing affordable technique to control, in this course you will learn how to use it effectively

After Taking this course:

What you’ll learn

  • No more getting up from the couch to change settings or turn things on/off.
  • Control up to 15 devices with just one remote.
  • Works from anywhere in the room.
  • Make your own Arduino Infrared Remote controlled Application.
  • Read Infraraed Signals from any remote Control that you have inside your house and get the code for each button easily.

This course will help you implement infrared remote control to turn anything around you on and off with and without a microcontroller.

One of the most common forms of wireless communication is infrared. This course discusses IR control in detail and explains in a step-by-step manner how to use any remote control to control devices (On and Off) by using a Simple IR Reciever.

In this course, I will show you how to build a simple infrared-controlled device using a microcontroller.

What you will learn:

  • We will first explore the physics of infrared radiation, how it can be detected by a phototransistor, and what happens when it is interrupted.
  • In infrared radiation detection methods, we will also explore infrared control with and without a microcontroller.
  • What are the benefits of infrared control with a microcontroller?
  • We will then explore the Arduino library and library functions to create infrared light and detect an interruption of that light.
  • Compare and contrast this to other methods for controlling infrared devices such as passive infrared
  • Finally, we will create a circuit without a Microcontroller to receive the IR Signal and turn a device on and off using a really

The use of infrared control is not the only way to control infrared devices. There are many types of infrared sensors, some of which work without any need for a microcontroller. We will compare and contrast these two methods in order to better understand which one would be more appropriate for your project.
