Step 1: Components Needed:

IR Transmitter Circuit:

* IC 555
* 9VDC battery with connector
* Capacitors 100uF, 0.01uF, 1nF
* Resistors 1K, 20K, 470
* Push Button

IR Receiver Circuit:

* TSOP1738
* IC4017
* Capacitor 1uF
* Resistors 1K, 10K, 100K
* Transistors BC547, BC557
* Diode 1N4007
* 6Volts DC Relay
* 9V DC Battery with connector

Step 2: Making the Remote:

Make the Remote circuit and connect it with the 9 volt battery

Step 3: Testing Our Remote:

I've already made a transmitter circuit with connected with an LED. So I've tested it with that.

Step 4: Making the Receiver Circuit:

Make the circuit as detailed in the circuit above.

Step 5: Connect It With Relay and Bulb

Connect the 6V Relay with the circuit. And connect a bulb with the relay and 220V AC power supply.

Step 6: Now It's Ready:

Now our remote and transmitter circuits are ready. Switch on the Remote and see the bulb glowing. Press the button again to switch the bulb off.

    This looked like an easy and useful project. I was just about to give a favorable vote when I noticed the schematic for the receiver. Yipes!
