I'm looking for a library to decode RAW IR signals from an IR sensor (looks like a black LED, two legged) rather than an IR module (3 legged, rated for a particular frequency - such as 38kHz).
Is there a library that supports IR sensors?
A picture of the two possibilities can be seen here
EDIT: This isn't a duplicate of my previous post, it is related to the same project however.
On my previous question I asked what could be the cause. I've found out what it is - frequency. My previous IR detector was an IR module and not an IR sensor. The difference could be seen here
IRremote (already recommended) - but to save you some time, use the IRRecvDump example to grab the raw codes you need for sendRaw(). They need to be averaged out across 10-20 reads. I log the output to a file, and use a perl script to do it for me, since it is painful to type this into a calculator a million times. The resistor you connect to the sensor affects its sensitivity - I used 330ohm, and have ~10 metres range from a 3V3 remote inside, 4-5 metres outside in sunlight. I would give you the script, but it's on my desktop. Let me know if you need it - or just use python, which is so popular nowadays (indent-or-fail... feh. what about people who don't like setting up the tab-space continuum, and don't have fancy editors...mumblemumble)
Edit: my raw codes absolutely needed to be averaged out, or they were useless. Any negative values in the array can just be made positive, don't fret.
