Summary

In this chapter, we took a look at a kernel driver to manage an infrared device. Then, we saw how to use the userspace tools from the LIRC project to receive the messages from the remote controller, and then to turn them into specific Linux input events. This allowed us to manage some devices connected with our BeagleBone Black.

In the next chapter, we'll discover how to manage a wireless device to manage a wall plug and to monitor the power consumption of the device connected to it by using a common communication system for the home automation, that is, the Z-Wave protocol.
