IR Trans

Component Type: Actuator (Subcategory: Home Control)

This component sends transmission commands to an infrared-transmitter. The different commands can be selected by the different events. The commands must be programmed into the IR-transmitter, before this component can be used. Furthermore, commands can also be sent to this component's input port ("action").

Action String example: The action string starts with "@IRTRANS:" and contains the remote control name and the command name. For example, if the IR-Transmitter is programmed with a database called "LG-TV" and the desired command is called "TvOn", the action string to play the IR-code is "@IRTRANS: snd LG-TV,TvOn".

Using the event based option, the property "prestring" is set to "snd LG-TV", and at property "send1" is set to "TvOn".
