TV/DVD Remote Decode Using Arduino and Vs1838b IR Receiver and Using It in Home Automation
Home appliances like TV/DVD remote’s have always been a spare at home whenever we replace it with a new one. these unused materials as spares can always be used in different projects and home automation techniques like remote based home automation(controlling functions of fan, bulb, tubelight).
IR Receiver is a device that uses infrared portion of electromagnet spectrum for wireless communication. IR Receiver has three pins
In this blog we are going to learn to decode any IR remote using Arduino and universal IR Receiver(vs1838b) and further we will learn to make remote operated gigs like TV Remote controlled home automation stuffs and much more.
Components required for the project are -:

Step 1: Making Connections/ Schematics
Make connections according to the schematics. Connect the signal pin of the IR receiver to pin no.12 of Arduino Uno. Download schematic from here
Step 2: Decoding the IR Remote
There are some libraries that are required to downloaded to decode the remote. You can download libraries from here Click here to download libraries.
There are few steps to be followed after downloading the libraries -:
- Download the libraries and save it on desktop with the name “Remote Decode”.
- Open the folder and you will find another folder within with the name as “IR Fold
