Infrared Remote Control

Above is the transmitter and the image below is the receiver:

To adjust the circuit, hold down S1 while pointing LED1 at the receiver. Adjust R6 until you hear the relay click.
You can increase range by using a high output LED for LED1.
Bright light will stop the receiver from responding to the transmitter.
