IRremote ESP8266 Library

This library enables you to send and receive infra-red signals on an ESP8266 using Arduino framework (

This library is based on Ken Shirriff's work (

Mark Szabo has updated the IRsend class to work on ESP8266 and Sebastien Warin the receiving & decoding part (IRrecv class).

Seb's notes : I also changed the pulse parameters for Samsung, update the Panasonic and Samsung decoders and remove the SANYO decoders. The IR decoder was successfully tested with Panasonic and Samsung remote controls.
