mobile it to touch the contact beneath it and complete the
PC "volume up" circuit on the circuit board. The
integrated circuit detects this. The integrated circuit
sends the binary "volume up" command to the LED
web at the front of the remote.
The LED sends out a series of light pulses

command. An IR remote control (the transmitter)
sends out pulses of infrared light that represent
specific binary codes. These binary codes correspond
to commands, such as Power On/Off and Volume
Up. The IR receiver in the TV, stereo or other device
decodes the pulses of light into the binary data (ones
and zeroes) that the device's microprocessor can
understand. The microprocessor then carries out the

VII. Conclusion
The conclusion of Remote controlling PC
with Smartphone (Android mobile) Inputs from
remote place with internet project is Smart phone and
tablet universal remote software is usually highly
customizable. As with traditional universal remotes
some are programmed using the handset
(phone/tablet) itself and others are programmed
using a computer. remote control features, you can
finally clean up your coffee table and put your extra
remotes away in a drawer somewhere. Now your
phone (or tablet) is your remote. At last your whole
family (and even guests) will be able to figure out how
to control all the different devices and inputs you have
in the living room. A customizable remote control
interface, where you decide exactly which buttons
appear when you want them to. The dominant remote-
control technology in home-theater applications is
infrared (IR). Infrared light is also known as plain-old
"heat." The basic premise at work in an IR remote
control is the use of light to carry signals between a
remote control and the device it's directing.
