Pros:
- IR sensor works like a charm. - Trim regulator lets you adjust relay closing time. - Can be used with plenty varieties of voltages and powers, from simple AAA to powerful Lead-Acid batteries. - Separated sensor PCB gives you more flexibility when placing the sensor.
Cons:
- No range/sensibility regulator. - Relay makes a loud "click" when triggered.
Other:
I'll upload some photos soon.
Bottomline:
I wanted to build an IR controlled 12V led light and I first tried with sku.139624 but I had no means of making it close a relay with its low output. Someone told me to fix my problem with a transistor, but since I don't have much knowledge of electronics he suggested me to buy this module with included relay. And, man, this is EXACTLY what I was looking for.
