Background/Objectives: In day-to-day customs we come across miscellaneous gadgets for instance television, set-top box, home theater, air conditioner, DVD player and many more remote operated devices for our comfort and contentment. Using non-identical gadgets means using different kinds of remote controls which not only makes disconcert but also difficult to conserve. A Smart IR device will control all the IR enabled devices like television, home theater, DVD player using android and iOS applications. Methods/Statistical Analysis: To design a device that will control all the IR devices which encompass learning module and operational module. Learning module, a new IR remote bit pattern is learned and stored in the device itself and operational side deals with the android and iOS applications, i.e., the mobile application will communicate with Smart IR device and the Smart IR device control the gadgets like television, set-top box, home theater, air conditioner. Findings: As the advancements in the embedded systems and internet-of-things some special hardware is required to design a Smart IR device for controlling the IR based home appliances and this way of implementation leads to low power and cost-effective home automation device.
