I'm wondering if anyone has an idea of how to do this or a better idea.?
I want to turn my Motorola Xoom in to a universal remote. My initial idea was to take a few Arduinos and turn them into IR/RF blasters that are connected to the home network either by WiFi/Ethernet. Each of these blasters would be considered zones. Then I'd have to build an android app which would send network packets to the appropriate blasters.
Does anyone have any good better ideas? Or even a good place to start?
Of course the blasters would either need to be programmable or contain a database of settings.
