Infrared Keychain Remote Control
Cost: $3.95 each
Description: Have you ever needed a cheap way to activate something from across the room? Infrared remotes are still the cheapest way to wirelessly control a device. We chose this remote because it's small, very simple, and low-cost. For the majority of the projects we build, we don't need 34 buttons, we need one or two. This is the smallest IR remote control we could find.
The remote does control volume, power, and mute on most of the IR equipment in our office. Unfortunately we can't guarantee that it will work with your 1995 Pioneer 5-disc CD player though. Rather, we are carrying this remote to work with many of the more common IR receiver ICs.
Check the pictures, we tore one apart so you can see what's on the inside.
Note: The unit comes with a coin cell battery.
Note: It's come to our attention that on some (if not most) models of TV, the channel buttons on this remote will act opposite to the way they're marked. Channel up changes the channel down and vice versa. If you're using this remote with your own embedded application, this shouldn't affect anything.
