Introduction: Be Lazy With TV Remote

I am too lazy to do a walk just to switch on/off any electrical appliance. So, here is my Genie, a TV remote.

This project is used to switch the electrical appliances remotely using TV remote. It uses philips RC5 protocol based remote. The micro controller used is of Atmel i.e. at89c2051 of 8051 type. I have used triacs instead of relays to switch the AC appliance due to the reason of switching speed of circuit.

Step 1: Parts Needed

  • Dotted PCB
  • 12-0-12 step down transformer
  • 1N4007 diode
  • LM7805 5V voltage regulator
  • 1000uf electrolytic capacitorat
  • 89c2051 microcontroller
  • 20dip IC base
  • 11.0592 MHz crystal
  • debounce switch
  • 10uf electrolytic capacitor
  • 33pf ceramic capacitor
  • 8.2k resistor
  • red leds
  • 1738/1838T/2238 IR receiver modules ( Use any of these, just check the pins carefully )
  • BC547 NPN transistor
  • BT136 triacs
  • soldering iron
  • soldering wire
  • 1K resistors
  • RC5 protocol TV remote
  • 8051 programmer
  • some wires and jumpers

Step 2: Circuit Diagram

Here is the complete circuit diagram for project. I have also added eagle schematic file.

Step 3: Working on Dotted PCB

Place all the components on dotted PCB according to circuit diagram. Steps shown in images.

Step 4: Assembly Code for 8051 Microcontroller

Compile this asm file using any 8051 assembler program. I have used this ASEM-51 assebler. It creates .hex file, which we need to upload to the microcontroller using 8051 programmer. I have used "Top win Universal Programmer" . Check it here Top win Products. It can be interfaced with so many microcontrollers,eeproms etc.

Step 5: Final Touch

I have given some final touch to the project using some chart paper and marker.
