Which IR Emitter component to use with Photon?

I’m trying to build an IFTTT to IR module to control my entertainment system using Amazon Echo/Alexa.

I’m trying to figure out which IR component I need to use to control a bunch of devices (projector, amplifier, Apple TV and HDMI switch).

Can I get any off the shelf components? Can I just repurpuse something like this Logitech IR Mini Blaster?

If not what do I need to assemble on the Photon in order to transmit IR codes for these devices?

Appreciate the help.

If not, they’ve got very good resources on how to use (your own) I with the photon. Have a look.
