Video: Using Arduino & Sensors to Debug an Old Remote

Now that I’ve got my video recording setup mostly assembled, it’s time to start testing things out! In this quick pilot video I use an Arduino paired with an IR sensor to get curious and see if an old remote is still generating a signal. And if it is generating a signal, what does it look like?

Some take-aways I have from this video is:

  • The process was pretty quick. Full disclosure this was my second take, but even still, the process was easy.
  • I could use improved lighting
  • When in “selfie mode,” I spend too much time looking at the monitor and not the camera.
  • The go-pro quality is sort of low in zoom mode.
  • The sound quality was good.
  • Transitions could be smoother – just need practice.
