Chapter 8. Controlling Infrared Devices Using IR Remote

Most consumer electronic devices come with a handheld remote control that allows you to wirelessly control the device from a short distance. Remote controls produce digitally encoded IR pulse streams for button-presses, such as Power, Volume, Channel, Temperature, and so on. However, can we extend the control distance between the device and the remote control? Yes we can; by using Arduino IoT in conjunction with a few electronic components. This chapter explains how you can incrementally build an Internet-controlled infrared remote control with Arduino.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • How to build a simple infrared receiver and decode values for each remote control key ...
