Hello!


Welcome back to another chapter of "TECH DISCOVERY"


About TECH DISCOVERY In this series, we create some posts on technological stuff and apart from that we would like to take your suggestions, idea and reviews about any topic (bounded by tech). We hope you would like this new concept of technical talk show.


Let's Start!

An infrared sensor or (IR Blaster) is a gadget that accepts some sort of input from your remote and "blasts" it via infrared to the IR-compatible device you're trying to control or a device that emulates an infared remote control to autonomously control that is only by a remote key presses. Such as IR Blaster allow  VCRs and DVRs are common devices used for recording purposes. Mostlly, users operate devices with a remote-controlled product.
                                                    maxresdefault.jpg

IR blaster acts as an infrared remote control, or remotely operated control device, that communicates with other devices via infrared signals. Infrared signals are made up of infrared light, or electromagnetic radiation. IR blasters use infrared LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, to emit infrared radiation. This radiation is focused via a plastic lens into a narrow beam, which directs the signals IR blasters are often used to enable recording devices like DVRs to switch channels via common tuner devices like satellite receivers and cable boxes. This saves time form the service.The IR operates so much faster than terminals and it is a economical way to this fast moving world.But The distance matter because the distance is limited within a area, there is also a limit on the number of remotes(Phones) that can be attched to a single Host, eg:TV, AC.

This allows the recorder device to select the appropriate channel before recording. IR blasters are also used to extend infrared signals to equipment or devices that are behind closed doors.

We’ve reviewed some TVs that have terrible IR sensors on them: Pressing a button on the remote will not do anything unless it is pointed directly at the sensor. There are no (appropriate) words for this kind of frustration.

This brings us to an additional benefit of using an IR blaster: It can extend the range of your remote, and it can overcome obstacles. Since this device is pumping out a stronger signal than your TV or cable box, you can sit at a comfortable distance away from your electronics and still change the channel, plus the signal will go through certain walls.
Cable box blocked by a stack of Blu-rays? Not a problem at all now.Here is the solution.

This is how infrared sensor or (IR Blaster) works and you can control any infrared supported devices by your phone miui makes our life more easy..


All Mi & Redmi phones comes with inbuild infrared sensor and you can use it via Mi remote.


Do you use IR Blaster and understand how it works?
