Introduction: Arduino - Control Your LEDs With TV or IR Remote

In this tutorial we will learn how to control our LEDs with using TV or IR remote.

After this tutorial, you can control everything with your TV or IR remote.

Step 1: Required Hardware

Step 2: Connection Infrared (IR)

Infrared (IR) controls are often used in most electronic devices.

The 38 kHz infrared receiver we use in the project demodulates the signal it receives and sends the button code to the Arduino. We can use with this receiver as long as different brand and model remote controls have 38 kHz carrier signal. The receiver has 3 pins. These are GND - VCC - Signal respectively.

Step 3: Find Hex Code

First we must find the hex codes of the buttons of remote controller.

This way you can use another remote control instead of the included in the kit. So if you have only receiver, you can use any TV remote control. We will use the IRrecvDump example code.

Step 4: Get the IR Library

Download IR library - https://goo.gl/INTfWC

Uncompress the ZIP or RAR file onto your desktop

Place the folder into your arduinosketchfolder/libraries folder

Rename the uncompressed folder IRremote

Step 5: Connection

We use 220 ohm resistor for the LEDs

Step 6: Source Code
