I am working on a project where I need to control RGB light fixture with Arduino. This Chinese fixture doesn't have DMX, it uses remote control only. My goal is to be able to switch the light on; turn red; start fade(breathe). So I thought that by obtaining IR codes from the remote and sending these with Arduino would be the easy way to go. However Arduino can not read anything from this remote. But I can read fine from my Samsung remote.
So my question is: can I use any kind of remote or the ones with listed protocols(NEC, Sony, Samsung etc) only.
I use similar part and the code from this tutorial:
const byte IR_RECEIVE_PIN = 4;
Serial.println("IR receive test");
unsigned long keycode = IrReceiver.decodedIRData.command;
if ((IrReceiver.decodedIRData.flags & IRDATA_FLAGS_IS_REPEAT))
