IR Receiver Wireling

AST1008

Whisker Kickstarter Item


Note: This item is currently only available on Kickstarter, it will be for sale on our site after the Kickstarter is complete and rewards have been fulfilled



DESCRIPTION

This Wireling lets you receive Infrared signals in the 38 kHz range, standard for most TV and appliance remotes. This sensor demodulates the 38 kHz carrier frequency and outputs only the High-Low signals, making it easily integrable with existing Arduino libraries. Well documented and easy to use IR protocols include the Sony, Sharp and NEC protocols, often included in Arduino IR Libraries.
