To get the blaster running you might need to create a new systemd
service according to [1]. The options here corresponds to the blaster
part of hardware.conf. When configured, you should be able to use
irsend(1) using the configured /dev/lircX device.

That is, if the blaster is a separate piece of hardware on it's own
/dev/lircX interface. Otherwise you should be able to use irsend using
your already running service and it's /dev/lircX port.
