DevKit

IR control module for Arduino, ESP8266, WeMos D1, ESP32, RaspberryPi.

Add IR blaster to your next project.

Our development kits are made for hobbyists and amateurs who don't want to mess with soldering and do not want to learn the details of encoding and decoding IR signals.

Starter module supports UART communication. You can use development boards like Arduino, ESP8266 WeMos D1, ESP32, RaspberryPi, STM32 Discovery to communicate with the IR controller module.

Maker module combines our Starter module with a widely popular Wemos D1 Mini board (ESP32/ESP8266). This module was specially designed to control using Amazon Alexa or Google Home via Sinric Pro. In addition, you can connect a BME280 or BME680 to read the temperature and humidity as well.

About 98% of devices that are available on the market can be used for learning and controlling with this module. Including TV's, air conditioning units (supports long IR codes), audio & VCD players , projectors, fans and many more.

Compatibility

Supports Windows/Mac, Raspberry Pi, ESP32, ESP8266, STM32 MCU Discovery development boards or any device with UART interface

starter module

Any development board that uses a microcontroller with a 5V output is sufficient. ESP8266 WeMos D1 mini is one of those boards.

Step 1: Wiring

Wire up your development board according to the diagram shown.

Step 2: Learning IR

Now you are ready to start the learning mode. To start the learning mode send the E0 to the module via UART interface, the built-in LED indicator will turn blue. Now press any button on the remote to record. Module will decode the button's IR signal and send it back via the UART interface.

Python Arduino Documentation

Step 3: Transmitting IR

Once you have decoded an IR signal, it is easy to send it back. Send E3 followed by the IR code you decode earlier. The built-in LED indicator will blink once to indicate send success.
