Project Feasability (Remote controlled candle on/off)

Hello, I am new to the community and have heard about the capabilities of Arduino and wondering about the feasability of igniting or distinguishing a candle with a remote switch. If possible, what equipment would I need to make this a reality?
Thanks readers! :slight_smile:

The main question is what mechanisms would you use to ignite and extinguish the candle - this is not a question about Arduino. Once you have figured that part out, it may well be something that can be controlled by an Arduino but you won't know until you have decided what 'it' is.

H, Infrared Phototransistor as Flame Detector would be one part.

10 cents: http://yourduino.com/sunshop2/index.php?l=product_detail&p=209 That's the EASY part :roll_eyes:
