The Power Of Many

Here is the Bill Of Materials just to buy the parts for 10 IRDs.

That's about $5 per IRD not assembled.  If we factor in the cost of assembly, KS fees, and shipping, the only way to make the numbers work is by making lots and lots of IRDs; about 1000 assembled IR Detectors will do the trick!

Risks and challenges

Common risks are out of stock components, trade wars with China and other unknown factors that will cause delays in product delivery. To overcome these issues we would have to spec alternate components, source from different countries, and deal with the unknowns.
