DeviceLab Launches Video Showing Use of IR Dongle, Wifi or Bluetooth in Android and Apple iOS Phones to Control Home CE Devices

  (August 25, 2011)

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) August 25, 2011

DeviceLab ( has released a video ( ) illustrating the use of an IR dongle, wifi or Bluetooth in Android and Apple iOS phones to control Home CE Devices. A bridge board converts Wifi/Bluetooth commands to IR codes which control the IR-based CE devices.

The newly released video shows Nexus-One Android phone, iPhone, and iPad2, together with the "bridge" PCB, and demonstrates the following points:

  •     In the previous video the user had created a Macro (to control his Samsung TV and Panasonic DVD player using an iPhone + IR dongle). But what if the user has an iPad or Android phone which doesnt have a compatible docking connector? This video (Video 2) shows how to copy the previously created Macro to an iPad2, and use built-in Wifi/Bluetooth features to control the home CE devices. It should be noted that without an IR dongle, iPad and Android need a bridge to convert their Wifi or Bluetooth commands to IR signals to control CE devices. This bridge is the PCB (printed circuit board) shown on the right side of this video. By touching the Macro Samsung TV_PanDVD" on the phone's UI, a red light blinks on the PCB's IR LED to transmit the IR code to control the TV and the DVDplayer.
