This circuits consist of two parts, the first part will transmit a signal, and the second part will detect that signal and trigger a relay.To adjust the circuit, hold down S1 while pointing LED1 at the receiver. Adjust R6 until you hear the relay click. You can increase range by using a high output LED for LED1. Bright light will stop the receiver from responding to the transmitter.
You can use the designed PCBs to build the circuit simply:
