New release: HVAC IR Remote Module for Arduino / Raspberry PiMay 22, 2013

IR Remote
IR Remote is a small shield that allows you to record any infrared command sent by a remote control and resend it from the Internet. It works connected to Arduino and Raspberry Pi, and let us to control any HVAC system including heating,ventilationair-conditioning and thermostats from the Cloud.

We offer 6 different wireless interfaces to connect Arduino and Raspberry Pi to the Internet: WiFi, 3G, GPRS, Bluetooth and 802.15.4 / ZigBee.

With IR Remote you can easily control our home HVAC system from a laptop, a webserver or even from your smartphone. The shield is compatible with both Arduino and Raspberry Pi so you can choose your favourite platform to automate your home.

You can find a detailed Tutorial to know how to use IR Remote Module with your favourite HVAC devices, as well as a demonstration video to show a basic example of what it can do.

Note: If you are interested in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)M2M and the Internet of Things (IoT) projects check our new open source sensor platformWaspmote which counts with more than 60 sensors available to use and a low consumption mode of just 0.07uA to ensure years of battery life.

    We have used your project in our lab for the "recupero dati da server" and wanted to inform you that the problems rised by some users on your tutorial with high probability, could be related with the dimension of the array.
    The suggestion is to increase it from 100 to 200. This change will fix many modern remotes (and not only modern). During our tests we were using the remote of an Panasonic plasma tv and of an Samsung air conditioner and both were shooting round about 150 lines (couples of values ON and OFF).
    Only with the array enlarged enough, we have been able to turn the TV ON and to change the TV channels.
