Infrared Remote Control with Microcontroller
Posted on Sunday, October 6, 2013   •   Category: Remote Control


This little project will demonstrate how you can use NEC IR protocol based TV, DVD or VCR remote control to control you home appliances like fan bulb or virtually anything. There are lots of projects out there to accomplish this task but i have to write my own code because of too many requests on IR infrared Remote Control Relay Board with PIC12F675 Microcontroller. There are a number of consumer Infrared protocols out there and they have been used for every single purpose possible, like PDA laptops and other consumer appliances. RC-5 & RC-6 by Phillips, RCA are few examples of consumer IR protocols.


IR Remote Control Extender
Posted on Thursday, May 2, 2013   •   Category: Remote Control


If you want control the DVD or TV/AV system that located in your living room via the remote control when you sleeping in your Bedroom. this IR extender will achieve this for you. Basically, it works as a repeater that moves the IR signal to a different location. This is an improved IR remote control extender circuit. It has high noise immunity, is resistant to ambient and reflected light and has an increased range from remote control to the extender circuit of about 7 meters. It should work with any domestic apparatus that use 36-38kHz for the IR carrier frequency.


8 Channel IR Remote Control
Posted on Sunday, May 8, 2011   •   Category: Remote Control


This IR remote control that you can use to control other devices or circuits up to 8 devices. The control codes are sent in RC5 format modulated to about 38 kHz carrier frequency.The IR transmitter powered by the CR2016 which is a 3V button Cells Battery CR2016.To extend the life of the battery this is done by putting the CPU into SLEEP mode for most of the time and wake-up only when a key is pressed. PIC16F630 is the heart of the transmitter used to send IR command to receiver.It also generate 38KHz carrier frequency.The CR2016 is 3V battery which is supply for the circuit. When any key not pressed the CPU work in SLEEP mode to reduce baterry power consumption and wake-up only when any key pressed. To wake-up the CPU from SLEEP mode the CPU use interrupt on change feature which interrupted when the state on PORTA change then the program execution after an interrupt is at the interrupt vector, if the global interrupt is not enabled, the program starts executing the first line of code right after the SLEEP instruction.In the interrupt service routine the software will scan the key that pressed and send IR command appropriate with key pressed.


8 Channel RF Remote Control
Posted on Saturday, May 7, 2011   •   Category: Remote Control


This is a 8 channel RF remote control project. The transmitter powered by 5V.the RF module I used had long start-up and power down period after receiving a high pulse. To counter all of this I kept the receiver in constant standby mode, but sending a information all the time. That way the noise is flooded out, and the receiver will always respond. I had been trying all sorts of error detection methods and different ways of encoding the bytes, when I just gave up. Since the link is so noisy I decided to cut out all of the error detection methods and just make it accept anything it receives, and see what happened from there. But what do you know, it worked!


RF Control for Home Appliance
Posted on Monday, May 2, 2011   •   Category: Remote Control


This circuit consists of Transmitter and Receiver section. The circuit can be used to control home appliances within a range of 30 meters. In open area, you can expect a range of 100 meters. The circuit comprises HT12 Encoder and Decode IC's. HT12 Encoder is used in the transmitter (remote) circuit where as HT12E is used in receiver circuit. The Encode IC encodes the 4 bits of data and transmit it serially to to RF Transmitter module. These 433Mhz transmitter and receiver modules operate using ASK Modulation.


Light RF Remote Control
Posted on Sunday, May 1, 2011   •   Category: Remote Control


This is another remote control for my RF light switch. Pretty much the same as before but on a smaller PCB. Also ended up putting it in an old Maxim sample box. I found a couple of button nubs in my junk box so decided to go with those. Even so I had to raise the buttons with pieces of rubber. A piece of tape keeps the buttons from falling out when the box is opened and also adds some tolerance for misalignment.


Simple IR Remote Receiver with Decoder
Posted on Saturday, April 30, 2011   •   Category: Remote Control


The function of the device is very simple. Any IR remote than can be programmed to use the Sony protocol will work. The module outputs the device code (TV/VCR/DVD/AUX) and the button pressed, so the device can be used on as many different projects as your remote has devices (usually four). The numeric keys output the number of the key (0 outputs a 0, etc.). The function keys all output unique numbers. Note that not all buttons are available depending on which device you have selected. The VCR setting seems to use most of the keys on the remote. Also note that the first key pressed after the device is powered up does not output what it should. All subsequent numbers are correct. Luckily, all of the numbers so generated make a number different than any of the key codes, so it doesn't cause any problem. This could even be used to let the device know if it has just been powered up or rebooted. I have no idea why it does this.


RF Remote Control Light Switch
Posted on Sunday, April 10, 2011   •   Category: Remote Control


This is a remote controllable light switch that comes with an RF remote. The only light switch is across the room from my PC and it's a pretty large room. (The building's basically a 1-room apartment) so this works out great with the remote. Of course since I'm using the remote to cut the lights when I go to bed I'm basically using the remote from two places which brings with it the unavoidable annoyance of the remote being in the wrong place all the time. Which means I have to get up and look for it which is effectively as much of an annoyance as it was meant to solve. So I wanted a second controller that would basically be a stationary switch by my bed so I could leave the portable remote around the desk.


4-CH RF Remote Control
Posted on Friday, March 25, 2011   •   Category: Remote Control


Having the ability to control various appliances inside or outside of your house wirelessly is a huge convenience, and can make your life much easier and fun. RF remote control provides long range of up to 200m / 650ft and it works even through the walls. You can control many low voltage gadgets including motors, RC cars, robotic devices, amplifiers or 110V/220V appliances through relays such as lights, fans, AC systems, home appliances, garage doors, security systems, motor-driven curtains, motorized window blinds, door locks, sprinklers, motorized projection screens and anything else you can think of. 4-CH RF remote control is used to turn ON / OFF four different devices independently. Any of the four outputs can be configured to work independently in either toggle or momentary mode. Outputs are buffered by BC549 NPN transistors and can drive low voltage devices directly such us motors or be connected to either 5V or 12V relays to control appliances that use 110V / 220V mains voltage or any voltage of your choice. Multiple remote systems can be used independently to control more than four appliances in the same location by changing the address code on 433MHz receiver and remote. It is also possible to use several remotes to control the same appliance such as garage door.


2 Channel RF AVR Remote Control
Posted on Monday, March 21, 2011   •   Category: Remote Control


There are lot of remote controls like infrared, RF, SMS (like my other circuit) and more. The basic small-range remote controls are 2, Infrared and RF (Radio Frequency). One of the weaks of Infrared is that the signal can not pass the walls. So, if you want to control your garage door, the only way is to use some RF remote control. The circuit (transmitter and receiver) use few components and ordinary (I love few component circuits) . Its easy to build it because you don't have to tune-up any coil or variable capacitor. The RF modules are fix to work in 418MHz area.


Infra Red Vision System for a Toy Cars
Posted on Monday, November 15, 2010   •   Category: Remote Control


This is the project of infrared vision system for a toy car. It will project 2 modulated IR beams ahead and detect any reflection of these beams on any obstacle ahead of the car. The circuit will then invert the car's motor for a given time thus changing the direction of advance as it goes in reverse. No special control for steering is necessary as the car has the front wheels' shaft in an eccentric support: when going forward it auto aligns itself, when running backwards the shaft turns and the car describes a curve.

RC5 Infrared Remote Control Receiver for Media Centers
Posted on Tuesday, April 13, 2010   •   Category: Remote Control


RC5 Infrared Remote Control Receiver for Media Centers A few time ago I decided to create a media center box to replace my DVD player, satellite receiver, VCR and my kid's Play Station 2 , to one device. So, I made a core 2 duo processor system that actually replaced with succeed, all my electronic devices. The only thing that was missing was a remote control to switch On/Off my Media Center. After I searched on the net to buy a complete remote control system, I saw that the price was a little bit high (about 90 euros). I checked my stuff to find my old 7-in-one remote control that I had bought 2 years ago and I started to build my own remote control receiver circuit.
