    yes for sure. You need an IR sender also known as IR led. Thanks to light spectrum generated by this led (infra red) information are sent to the receiver. :-) http://www.futureelectronics.com/en/optoelectronic...

    All Remotes Into Your Smartphone

    This solution works via internet. you can be (as said in the tutorial) everywhere in the world and control your device. Regarding board see my comment above..... Please consider that you need some experience in coding and DIY project to create this... Isn't a super entry level project :-)

    yes that is ok. Is the version 2 of node MCU. Please select NodeMCU 1.0 in Arduino IDE board selector.

    Hi Gokahn,sorry but I think you have coding problem. Please copy/paste all code but honestly you need to be experienced a little bit in coding if you want run this project.... Code reflect your needs and your Blynk set up.

    this is strictly connected to where the device are.. please consider 3 facts: - IR sensor is connected NodeMcu via dupont jumper ( 20 cm long) - IR sensor have "to see" the IR receiver on tv/dvd/...- you need access to electricity to empowering the Nodemcu board.

    Ordinary TV. Tv isn't connected to internet. You need an Internet connection with WIFI to send instruction from your smartphone to the NodeMCU (the board I used for this project).Best

    there is a problem in your coding:{if ( param.asInt() && pinValueV0 == 1 ){this part of the code works well if you are making a "double check".Basically this code is ok if you have a menu selector and a button where you have to check booth value. In your case you got a simple button not 2 you have just to make an if clausole where you check the pinValue. if == 1 then send the ir code.

    Ciao Gökhan,please use the samsung coding sys. It's much more easy that send raw code. Regarding the appropriate code you have to use the 0x version:0xB24D3FC0. Regarding the button on your App: 1) it have to be in push mode not switch. If you use switch you change status to the button like light in your house:1 click light ON1 click light OFFwhat you need is the push mode. Signal is sent ONLY if button is pressed like in your TV remote. The signal is sent only is the button is pressed not always. 2) regarding button: honestly I think is better go with 2 botton in you case.1 button for ON purpose1 button for OFF purposeMay I see app user the user interface and not just the button status?Regarding led: the one I see in the picture is fine; please double check the side. Long leg go i...

    Hi, I made some update to the tutorial giving a deep explanation on every step. Just a question on your code: is your remote not covered by any protocol like NEC/SAMSUNG or others? I see that you are pushing raw code that is the worst scenario. Did you tried to send just code directly from the board to the air conditioner first (you can use the serial monitor on the Arduino IDE). I think is easier first testing if the air conditioner is responding to the IR sent instead of set all the environment.

    Hi Gökhan,you are right... I will update the instructionable with code description and examples... hoping to be more clear. That said the code is based on my specific needs; everybody have to adapt it to their own device

    honestly is something I never toke in consideration.On product prospective is something can be build. This feature is superinteresting if you want move on production level where you need to keep thinkssimple for your user. Please consider that this project was developed per myown home and not on commercial level.If you like my project please supporting me voting itin Microcontroller contest (you have to click on top right Vote! icon)Thankyou.Contest will close at May 1st 2017.

    Yes, you can easily control also air conditioner because they usually use infra red remote. The procedure is exactly the same.If you like my project please supporting me voting it in Microcontroller contest (you have to click on top right Vote! icon) Thankyou.Contest will close at May 1st 2017.
