Welcome to the IguanaWorks Support and Documentation Project

Here you will find technical information regarding the IguanaWorks USB IR Transceiver and Serial IR Transceiver in additional to basic information about ordering and shipping. If you are having a problem with your IR Transceiver, you can either contact us or you create a support ticket (you must register first).

As with all IguanaWorks software, the software and firmware are open, according to our license terms. Our Subversion software repository is available here for browsing or checkout.

The IguanaWorks USB IR Transceiver is a simple USB device that can communicate with most home electronics and remote controls via infrared (IR). The transceiver can both send and receive IR codes, and is fully compatible with LIRC under Linux and WinLIRC under windows. Unlike serial devices, the USB transceiver does not require a kernel module, and multiple transceivers can be in use at the same time. Each transceiver can transmit on up to 4 independent channels (dual socket version only). The transmitter is high-power compared to most serial devices, with a range of 10 ft. We support LIRC and WinLIRC. Basic overview and purchasing information available here.
