The Grove Infrared Emitter is used to transmit infrared signals through an infrared LED, whilst the Infrared receiver is used to receive the signals on the other side.
An infrared LED is like any other LED, with its colour centred around 940nm. We can use the emitter not only to transmit data or commands but also to emulate remotes to control your home appliance using an Arduino or similar development board.
The Infrared Emitter can transmit signals reliable up to 10 meters. Beyond 10 meters, the receiver may not send consistent signals.
