DIY Hacks & How To’s: TV Remote Controlled Electronics



With an infrared sensor and an Arduino, you can program your TV remote to control all sorts of things. Jason Smith shows you how in this episode of DIY Hacks & How To’s.

    I got one fo 26 bucks for you less its a or called a red board from spark fun not the kit  but what part in the libare do you download im lossed

    well, that is a good idea but i dont want to put my arduino in that box and never ever can do other stuff with it. Is there an other methode to use that Ir signal?

    Wait. 
    Can you catch fire with wrong relays?

  7. Hunter Mire September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    Has someone rewritten the code so i can hook a 6 channel relay bored up to the Arduino and have different buttons on the ir remote toggle different relays? Please help I can't figure out how to write the code!!

    Really a cooffe maker

    works with any tv remote?

  12. Franco Valor September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    UNIVERSAL CONTROL! (°-° )

  13. imchi September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    An Arduino is much too expensive too control just one device with it. Can the IRemote control more?

    Waste of an Arduino. You could definitely compact the project and just use an ATTINY of some sort. However, it's an extremely cool application and a great tutorial on how to do it. I just was there were more feasible projects with circuits like this.

    If im too lazy to get up and turn on my lamp which just takes a couple seconds, you think im gonna do all this? lol

  16. becky granger September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    um i cant do this

    WHO?   Deuteronomy 32:27-30
    Was it you that worked your way out of that problem: your skill, wisdom, experience? Are you patting yourself on the back for your; determination, boldness, and perseverance; that beat the odds and won through the battle? If you were honest with yourself you would admit it couldn’t be you at all. Jesus was there, Jesus did care for you.

    This sounds really easy. . . Thanks…..LOL

  19. Neueregel September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    lots of circuitry though

  20. Alex Tec September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    Nice !!

  21. DENNIS ADAMS DAKARAOKE September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    can you modify this to do multiple functions? 1 button turns on light another button plays sound  etc

  22. A7MAD September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    If I build this I would be super lazy

  23. R Murphy September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    Could've been done better.

    If you guy's are looking to do this with a computer setup- grab a 5.25" bay cover, and cut out the necessary sockets for the project. And house with the project box. Run the cables outside via the watercooling grommets out the back. I like it this way instead of having a box sitting by me. (Note: My Arduino is on top of my DVD writer/reader)

    I would feel save doing this in Germany, because we have Residual-current devices. Is there such protection in the US?

  26. Rhetorical Question September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    I will tell why I will not do this because an ardiuno costs 50 bucks and I am not going to pay that money to remote control a light when you can buy electric remote outlet control for under ten bucks .

    WAT

  28. mike dejong September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    could this work with say a cell phone that has an ir blaster

  29. Welstiel w September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    god forbid that you get up and walk to turn something on lmao great vid tho 😉

  30. TripingPC September 25, 2017 at 10:24 pm

    And you want to set more buttons on one arduino and is there a raspi version of this?
