Learn how to build an IR remote that could also be capable of controlling your entire home

We have a new project video for you all! In the video, we will show you how to build a very basic IR remote using the infrared service on the Quantum platform.

This project is just a stepping stone to the endless possibilities you can do with it. For me, I hate having to get up once I start a movie. But for some reason as soon as I get comfortable and start the movie, I realize there are some lights left on or I left the shades open and the sunlight is shining right onto the TV. With this IR remote, I could add some more buttons and build a true universal remote that I can customize to not only controls my TV but can also control my lights, motorized shades, and anything else I want.  Then I will truly never have to leave my couch once I've already settled. 

Check out our video to see how we built this project and show us what you end up building with it!
