Infa-Red Remote Control

I have received a number of emails requesting schematics for infa-red remotes. So here is one. This remote transmits a tone using an infa-red LED. This tone is decoded by the receiver. Since the receiver only switches when it "hears" the tone, there are no accidental activations.

Notes:

1. To adjust the circuit, hold down S1 while pointing LED1 at the receiver. Adjust R6 until you hear the relay click.

2. You can increase range by using a high output LED for LED1.

3. Bright light will stop the receiver from responding to the transmitter.
