Description: This project lets you know about Infrared. The LED connected on pin 13 of Arduino toggles each time a remote button is pressed. It should work with normal TV/VCD remote.Before you make this project, I strongly recommend you to make a basic remote tester with some basic electronic components. This is the fundamental circuit for controlling your home appliances.
For controlling home appliances operating at 220V, you need to connect a relay in place of LED. HOW TO USE A RELAY?
For this project you need to download IR remote library from this link: http://www.arcfn.com/2009/08/multi-protocol-infrared-remote-library.html.
OR download the zipped file directly: http://arcfn.com/files/IRremote.zip
After you make this project, you can try one more project: Infrared and PWM experiment
