Flipper Zero can interact with devices that use infrared light for sending commands, such as TVs, air conditioners, multimedia systems, etc. With its built-in Infrared module, Flipper Zero can learn and save infrared remotes and use its own universal remotes to control other devices.
You can access the Infrared application from the Main Menu. In the application, you can use universal remotes to control other devices, learn new remotes, and manage saved remotes.
- Universal Remotes — iterates over a dictionary of known protocols and sends the same command for all known manufacturers. The dictionary is stored on the microSD card. This is also known as a brute force attack. Because Flipper Zero iterates over an entire dictionary, the process of sending signals takes few seconds.
- Learn New Remotes — reads and saves signals from infrared remotes. Each button of a remote is saved separately.
- Saved Remotes — lists saved remotes, which can be edited and played back.
Flipper Zero has a built-in Infrared module consisting of an IR light transparent plastic window, three transmitting infrared LEDs, and a TSOP-75338TR infrared receiver.
