It was a hot, really hot, really very hot summer in 2012 in place where I used to live. I bought some cheap fan, though it was quite powerful, but there were two major drawbacks for me:
- No remote control
- No timer for scheduling switching off, let say at night. And I did not want it to make noise a whole night.
In the last article I reviewed the remote control based on the RC5 protocol, here I’m going to describe how I added it to my audio-amplifier.
Have to say, unlike usually, I did not meet any issues with this, so just describing the process.
It is time to put my hands on the IR protocol.
The goal: To study IR protocol and gain the skills to work with it
Tools: a microcontroller PIC16f877A, an IR receiver TSOP1736(1738), devboard
