LIRC is the piece of software that decodes the IR signal signals received from your remote and that encodes and sends the IR signal to your devices. It has only a command line interface (CLI) but in the d-diot image you can find a nice web interface (lirc_web) that makes your life easier. Of course LIRC and lirc_web are integrated in Home Assistant.

The IR receiver (TSOP4838) and the IR blaster, a 3W 940nm IR LED, are integrated in the d-diot board.

See the following guides to known more.
