Can a Bolt be programmed to react to infrared from something other than another Bolt?

A Sphero Bolt can be programmed to react to the infrared signal from another Bolt. Has anyone been able to get a Bolt to react to an infrared signal from a source from something other than a another Bolt? I have a DJI Robomaster S1 and would like to program a Sphero Bolt to react to the infrared signal emitted by the Robomaster canon. Any tips on where to begin?

Yes, theoretically. I got the IR specs from engineering, but they use the standard IR protocols (you can use your search engine of choice to find them). I built an IR interface on a Raspberry Pi Proto-Hat to talk to the Bolt, but I never got around to programming it. In theory it should work.
