I’m using a IR-D15A (http://www.rentron.com/remote_control/IR-D15A.htm) in conjunction with an Arduino board to interact with an existing device. The IR-D15A is basically a ir decoder for sony tvs - so I will be using a Sony remote.
The existing device I’m interacting with has momentary push buttons that I would like to trigger based upon output from the ir-d15a. Is there a way that I can put transistors between the ir-d15a and the contacts of the push buttons to trigger them based on ir? Is there an easier way to do this?
For this particular portion of the circuit, the arduino is completely bypassed - but if there are easier ways that would involve the arduino, I’m all for them!
Thanks in advance for the input
