What is an Infrared Emitter?
An infrared emitter, or IR emitter, is a source of light energy in the infrared spectrum. It is a light emitting diode (LED) that is used in order to transmit infrared signals from a remote control.
If you're interested in home automation, these IR receivers and transmitter will solve a lot of your problems working with arduino, raspberry pi, etc.You could use these guys to build universal remotes that control all the devices in your home too!
