I have a tubular motor for roller blinds. Do not have the remote to activate it.
Will it be possible to power it and maybe somehow use an old Tv remote to control it.
Yes, you can do that, but you need to add something to control the motor and attach an IR receiver to receive the signals from the remote control.
For example: motor->microcontroller->IR-receiver that receives signals from a remote to control the motor.
Here’s a project that might help: https://randomnerdtutorials.com/arduino-ir-remote-control/
Instead of an arduino, you can use an ESP32, ESP8266 or any other microcontroller.
Let me know if you need further help.
Thanks for your reply. The unit is a Somfy Brand and already has a built in microcontroller and IR receiver.
Since I the original hand remote was lost, I want to know if its possible to decode the IR signal and use a replacement generic hand remote.
Anyway, I will check out the project you linked. It may help be understand the problem better.
