Arduino IR Remote identification
Download IR remote library from the following link
Unzip the download.Rename it as IRremote and put it in arduino’s libraries folder.
To detect the remote
Set up a TSOP sensor like the above schematic…
Load the example code from File -> Examples -> IRremote -> IRrecvDemo then click the “Upload” button.Click the “Serial Monitor” button to bring up a window that will allow us to see the codes being returned to us by the Arduino. Start mashing buttons and you should see a lot of numbers scroll by like in the image below.
The ones that start off with FF and then have numbers or letters are the codes we are after. A FFFFFFFF is a continuation code and the 0 on its own line is a read error.
