SYNOPSIS

irsend [options] DIRECTIVE REMOTE CODE [CODE...]

DESCRIPTION

Asks the lircd daemon to send one or more CIR (Consumer Infra-Red) commands. This is intended for remote control of electronic devices such as TV boxes, HiFi sets, etc.

DIRECTIVE can be:


SEND_ONCE - send CODE [CODE ...] once SEND_START - start repeating CODE SEND_STOP - stop repeating CODE LIST - list configured remote items SET_TRANSMITTERS - set transmitters NUM [NUM ...] SIMULATE - simulate IR event

REMOTE is the name of a remote, as described in the lircd configuration file.

CODE is the name of a remote control key of REMOTE, as it appears in the lircd configuration file.

NUM is the transmitter number of the hardware device.

For the LIST DIRECTIVE, REMOTE and/or CODE can be empty:


LIST "" "" - list all configured remote names LIST REMOTE "" - list all codes of REMOTE LIST REMOTE CODE - list only CODE of REMOTE

The SIMULATE command only works if it has been explicitly enabled in lircd.
-h --help display usage summary
-v --version
  display version
-d --device
  use given lircd socket [/var/run/lirc/lircd]
-a --address=host[:port]
  connect to lircd at this address
-# --count=n
  send command n times

"irsend: could not connect to socket"
"irsend: Connection refused" (or "Permission denied").
