Infa-Red Remote Control

I have received a number of emails requesting schematics for infa-red remotes. So here is one. This remote transmits a tone using an infa-red LED. This tone is decoded by the receiver. Since the receiver only switches when it "hears" the tone, there are no accidental activations.

1. To adjust the circuit, hold down S1 while pointing LED1 at the receiver. Adjust R6 until you hear the relay click.
2. You can increase range by using a high output LED for LED1.
3. Bright light will stop the receiver from responding to the transmitter.
