Smart Remote Control

Is your remote control collection getting out of control? With a television, cable box, Blu-ray player, and stereo, not only does each remote take up space, but making them work to turn on the right devices and set the right inputs can be very frustrating! You might consider buying a fancy programmable remote control, but they can be expensive and sometimes dont offer the control or interface you want. This smart remote control project will show you how to build a device that can send and receive remote control codes from a web page. You can program exactly the functionality that you need from any smart phone or computer! This project uses the Arduino Yn, which is a special Arduino thats perfect for network-connected devices. The Yn has two processors, one of which runs the Linux operating system and can connect to wired or wireless networks. The second processor is the same as the one used in the Arduino Leonardo. It therefore has great compatibility with Arduino libraries and hardware.”
