Can anyone recommend a good, but simple, IR sensor/blaster kit please. It's just to control an amp located inside a cupboard. I don't need a full universal remote set up, as it's really going to be just volume up/down.
Brunzy: PM sent
Given the the OP simply asked for a recommendation, why don’t you share your info here? Other people may be interested in this.
Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Not sure the state of their app. I control mine with homebridge/openHAB/home assistant
For this case, I really don't need an app or anything, just the ability to use a remote for an amp in a cupboard. It'll have a turntable feeding it for a lot of the time, so that's manual by definition. Then I just want to sit down on the couch with a scotch and only control the volume. The rest of the time it will be fed by Sonos, so I already have an app, wifi control etc for that.
I had a bit of a look and thought maybe something like this would be all I need:
But I don't have any experience with anything like this.
Our other lounge with TV, ATV, AV receiver etc has more app like needs, so I think we'll go for a Harmony Companion (the house is being renovated at the mo, so I'm figuring how things will work going forward after that).
