How to Control the GPIO on a Raspberry Pi with an IR Remote @Raspberrypi #piday #Raspberrypi

Here’s a great tutorial from marks-space.com showing how to control the GPIO on a Raspberry Pi with Adafruit’s IR Remote.

Normally a remote would be used to control a TV card or XMBC, however they also provide a good interface to control the GPIO on a Raspberry Pi.

Adafruit has a Mini Remote and IR sensor which are perfect for this.

In this example we will use the remote to control a number of LEDs connected to some GPIOs on a Raspberry Pi…

Mini Remote Control: This little remote control would be handy for controlling a robot or other project from across the room. It has 21 buttons and a layout we thought was handy: directional buttons and number entry buttons. The remote uses the NEC encoding type and sends data codes 0 thru 26 (it skips #3, #7, #11, #15, #19 and #23) to address #0. You can use this to control something that is expecting NEC codes or you can pair this with our IR remote receiver sensor. Read More.
