We are delighted to announce that our industry leading AnalysIR application now includes support for Flipper Zero. Features include capturing signals into AnalysIR over Serial USB via the CLI, Manually importing of single and bulk signals in Flipper Zero Format, manually exporting of Infrared signals into Flipper Zero format for control of the target device. This update greatly enhances the capability of Flipper Zeros devices who also have a registered copy of AnalysIR.
Getting the AnalysIR Update
Existing owners of AnalysIR (All Editions) can request the updated version by emailing your support contact using your registration email address. New owners of AnalysIR will be sent the updated version after Registration. When using with AnalysIR, users can reverse engineer signals, convert to a wide range of industry formats and auto-correct IR signal timings using our signal ‘Clean’ feature.
LearnIR vs Flipper Zero
As existing users will know LearnIR is far superior and better value for IR dedicated tasks compared to the Flipper Zero. Similarly all of our IR modules and shields use higher quality components and features than are available on the Flipper Zero. We would also like to thank all of our users who tested this support update with their own devices.

We are excited to announce the immediate Availability of LearnIR Version 2. LearnIR has been out of stock for many months due to the global chip shortage. We have been able to redo the PCB to take advantage of the TQFP footprint (available at only a small premium) vs the QFN footprint (unavailable or very expensive). LearnIR is now positioned as the most advanced Infrared learner for remote control available worldwide and comes at a fraction of the price of its closest competitors. LearnIR V2 is a major upgrade to the previous version with greatly improved firmware and an optional enclosure. It comes with the companion LearnIR Windows application which has also seen some improvements over the previous version. Our new and unique FUZZY Clean technology is included for the first time. The clear enclosure is in a compact and portable thumb-drive form factor and can be attached to a key-ring, lanyard or similar. LearnIR Version 2 also feature an improved micro-controller which allows for future updates and upgrades. Check out the Product Datasheet here. Like all of our Modules is also supported by our flagship application AnalysIR.

We are excited to announce our newest product KontroLIR – the first Arduino compatible IR remote control. Users can now design their very own Infrared remote to work exactly how they want. The possibilities are unlimited. Customize the fully featured firmware within the Arduino IDE to your own needs or just add your own signals to the pre-configured 5 device/225+ buttons. Sketches are uploaded over Serial USB I/F from the Arduino IDE – just like any other sketch. KontroLIR features an ATmega328PB, a high power emitter, an indicator LED and is powered by 2xAAA alkaline batteries. Low power operation is already implemented with ~1uAmp idle current for long battery life. Available options include IR Receiver, IR Learner, 16 to 256KBytes I2c EEPROM and a serial USB adapter for uploading your sketch from the IDE. KontroLIR supports IRremote, IRLIB and is tightly integrated with our own AnalysIR Application.
Following the release of our highly popular A.IR Shield Nano, we have received numerous requests about using the module with platforms other than Windows. Because the module uses a standard Serial USB interface for communicating, experienced users can easily integrate it into any other platform. To assist other users we have now released an A.IR Shield Nano Python Script. Continue reading A.IR Shield Nano Python Script – Raspberry Pi (RPi)→
We received our ESP8266 NodeMCU several months ago it has been difficult to find a working example of Hardware PWM to generate crisp Infrared carrier signals. Most posts we have read suggest that there is no PWM readily available on any of the supported platforms. As we have already shown with Arduinos and the Particle Photon we figured it would be possible to use a spare UART pin on the ESP8266 NodeMCU to achieve our goal. After some initial success we encountered some watchdog timeouts/resets and it seemed like the uPWM hack would not be possible on the ESP8266 Node MCU platform. For a few weeks we ‘parked’ the effort and today we decided to try again with all of the latest and updated firmware available from the ESP8266 community via the Arduino IDE. This time we were successful and the ESP8266 NodeMCU Backdoor uPWM Hack for IR signals using works!
A few months ago a new user to AnalysIR, from Canada, asked us to assist in adding ESP8266 NodeMCU Infrared decoding over WiFi into AnalysIR. We set about making some upgrades to AnalysIR for this and in double quick time he had AnalysIR accepting IR signals from the ESP8266 over WiFi. He stressed the ease of use of the support within the Arduino IDE for ESP8266 devices and he wasn’t kidding. This motivated us to go and order an ESP8266 for US$3.60 including shipping from Aliexpress. Just the other day the NodeMCU arrived, presumably delayed somewhat by the extended XMAS holidays & celebrations, in this part of the world. So we set about porting our existing firmware for Arduino & Photon over to the new device.
The final member of our first MakeIR series of devices & kits is the A.IR Shield Photon. This shield works out of the box with AnalysIR and is essentially plug & play, with additional prototyping options. The shield plugs into a (Particle) Photon with headers or pin-compatible clone. Although designed specifically for AnalysIR, users can also upload any sketches that run on the Photon for Infrared remote control projects by customising the included firmware. A.IR Shield Photon is built with only the highest quality IR components available and boasts dual Infrared emitters with configurable IR Power. The supplied firmware supports hardware PWM for sending IR signals.
We have provided a link below to the preliminary product data sheet and would welcome feedback on additional, nice to have or missing features, if any. Please read the data sheet for a more detailed description of the A.IR Photon shield.
Since we received our Photon several months ago it has been difficult to find a working example of Hardware PWM on the Photon. Initially, we ported our softPWM approach to the Photon, which is excellent. However, we figured it must be possible to use at least one of the spare UARTs on the Photon to achieve our goal. So first we started prototyping on the Arduino and quickly got a working example with some limitations – only 40 kHz and 33 kHz carrier frequencies were possible with the UART without delving into the registers a bit more. Then we moved the code over to the Photon, leveraging our previous softPWM examples, upgraded with the Arduino code – EUREKA! The Backdoor uPWM Hack on Photon for Infrared signals.
