I added an IR LED to the build to be able to send IR sequences. For example to get to the sleep mode on my TV you have to press Menu, Click down 4 times, select, move right 3 times to select 30 minutes and press menu 2 to close. To stream line this i added that sequence to a single button and the Attiny executes the command. Other sequences i have added are AppleTV Netflix selector, which sends the proper sequence to get to my NetFlix account and brings me right o my recently watched or My list sections in NetFlix.
- In this version I have added a few capacitors due to the pulsing of the IR LED interfering with sending RF commands
- Added IR LED
- Moved IR codes to top so that changing codes is done in one place

The Delay needed for the RF module is very short but the code that I use is making the delay longer. Adding some compopnenants to smooth voltage when sending the signal seems to improve the delay and recovery time when the signal is received by the Attiny.
- Removed delay time in status LED blinking
- Need to add the use of interrupts in code if a signal is received while processing another signal to be executed later

Some of the IR controlled devices I have are in a different room. Ive been sketching a way to use the RF from the main Beacon to communicate with a small IR Attiny85 node that would translate an RF signal into an IR code and transmit it.
