IR-2-serial is a low-priced infrared receiver for controlling the PC with a standard remote control. Once connected it is recognised as a series interface (connected to COM1, COM2..) and requires no additional power supply. After the installation of free or shareware programs (see small selection on this site) a PC under MSDOS, Windows 95, 98, NT4, 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Linux operating systems can be controlled with an I.R. remote control.
A release is now available which supports Via Epia and notebook mainboards. You are asked when ordering which version you require. This module is available with and without housing!
IR-2-usb works with the USB-interface of your PC. It is connected to the USB-port with a standard USB A/B cable. A small USB driver must be installed (available for download on this site). After the installation of free or shareware programs (see small selection on this site) a PC under MSDOS, Windows 95, 98, NT4, 2000, XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Linux operating systems can be controlled with an I.R. remote control. This module is available with and without housing.
Using a standard remote control like the one that came with your video recorder, TV, HiFi etc you can control many of your PC's functions. You can emulate any mouse or keyboard operations including Ctrl and Shift key presses, start and close applications or send emails at the touch of a button on your remote control.
Examples for applications are:
After purchase only a short learning phase is necessary, you'll soon be operating your PC by remote control.
- Multimedia Presentations (eg. Powerpoint).
- Remote Control of TV or radio cards.
- Read and scroll through large documents.
- Simple operation of multimedia programs like MP3 Players, video Players or DVD players.
- and much more....
The module has its own microcontroller, which is responsible for
the decoding of the IR-signals thus no CPU load develops..
I guarantee that the module has the assured characteristics. Should a module be delivered defective or fail within two years I will replace that module free of charge.
