RF Remote

by jonesflyer42 on Mon Jan 26, 2009 9:00 pm

Hi,
I've searched the boards and can't find anything on if I'd be able to intergrate a RF remote into my Arduino's capibilities. Basically I want to load my light pattern schetch and place the board on my motorcycle and with each press of the button of the remote (basically a car's key fob) have the next LED lighting pattern active, press it again the next pattern activates and so on. I've seen videos of other members doing different light patterns with each press of a hard wired button, but never with a remote. I've tried to research on how to make a RF transmitter and reciever that might possibly work and the easiest thing I can find really is for a garage door opener using DIP switches that allows 256 combinations. Problem with this is I can't find any how to's or examples of how to make one, only them trying to sell me one and I'm not even sure if it'd work for my application. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated....thanks.
