USB Connected IR transceiver with keyboard emulation.
The Promixis PIR-1 is a USB connected IR (Infra Red) receiver and transmitter. It is designed to allow you to control consumer electronics around you. This includes TVs, DVD players, Stereos and projectors but is most definitely not limited to this. The transmitter supports the industry standard CCF-raw format. The PIR-1 has built-in high-power IR emitters and one connector in the back for a Xantech style IR transmitter that can be plugged directly on the device you wish to control.
Learning new codes
If you can't find the IR code to your device in our library you can learn the IR code much like you do with universal remotes. Simply hold the remote you wish to emulate in front of the PIR-1 and press and hold the button. After about 5 seconds the PIR-1 will report the IR code.
Wakeup PC from Standby
The PIR-1 allows you to program 2 remote control buttons that will wake up the PC from standby mode.
The PIR-1 also has a keyboard emulation mode. This allows you to plug buttons into the unit that will act like regular keyboard buttons. This can be of great use for people with disabilities that need a way to hook up larger buttons, head paddles or other assistive technologies to interface with the computer. This is especially useful in combination with scanning software like PEAC.
Control your computer with a remote
The PIR-1 in combination with Girder 5 also allows you to control your computer with almost any IR remote control you have. You can control your power point slideshow, your media player or almost any other software with any IR remote.
The PIR-1 comes with a detachable 3 foot USB cable. This allows you to pick the correct length cable for your purpose.
The PIR-1 is also available in a Development version. This version has an internal header exposing 8 digital io lines plus VCC and GND. This allows you to connect some additional hardware internally. From inside Girder you can then control these lines using lua. Either setting them to inputs or outputs.
