Seeeduino plays a mailman role in this project. We added an infrared receiver on it, so that Seeeduino can get the command message from the remote. We added a bluetooth module on it, so that Seeeduino can talk with the Android panel we used here. And at last we added a infrared emitter so that Seeeduino is capable of sending IR commands. Besides, to run up all these electricity consumers, we prepared a Lipo rider to handle the battery. You can find how all these devices look like on the first picture and the principle diagram on the second picture.
The whole process can be divided into 3 steps. They are:
Pair the Android device to the serial bluetooth on Seeeduino.
Aim the conditioner remote at the infrared receiver on Seeeduino. Press the target key on the remote, for example ON/OFF button, then the Android panel knows how to repeat the command.
Now aim the infrared emitter to the conditioner, press "send" button on the screen. The conditioner should be turned on or off.
