Irdroid WIFI Developer’s API

Irdroid WIFI

Irdroid WIFI

If you are Developer, and you are interested in integrating Irdroid WIFI with your application, you can find the Details below for the API of Irdroid WIFI/ LIRC:

The Irdroid WIFI module has a LIRC daemon listening fo incoming connections on TCP port 8765 , when a connection is established, the following statements / commands are available:

Available Commands:

  • LIST  – list all configured remote names
  • LISTREMOTE  list all codes of REMOTE
  • SEND_ONCE – send CODE [CODE …] once
  • SEND_START – start repeating CODE
  • SEND_STOP – stop repeating CODE

Basically in order to communicate with the LIRCD daemon that runs on Irdroid WIFI you need to establish a TCP/IP socket connection to host:

  • host:
  • port: 8765

After the connection is established you may start sending the above mentioned commands for querying the server and or for Start /Stop sending remote codes.

Below is an example in JAVA called LIRC Client which will save you a lot of time and you can simply add it in you Android APP and start communicating with Irdroid WIFI straight forward.

Irdroid WiFI APP tests

We have tested Irdroid v3.0 WiFi with Amote ( Amote ) , Lirc client for Android ( Lirc-client ) . Both apps provide the same functionalities, custom button layouts, custom IR macros definition, loading remotes from the Lirc server, button repeat, slide through remote screens, image icons, naming of custom buttons etc. Below are some screenshots from our tests.

The tests were carried out using Samsung Galaxy SII + running Android 4.1.2

App test results:

[table class=”table-condensed”]
App,Custom Layout,Macros,slide,auto repeat, widget, settings, Paid
Lirc client,Yes,Yes,Yes,Yes,No, Yes,No

The two apps tested has similar functionalities, options and settings. The Amote app has two versions paid one and a free version which is the same as the paid version ,there are however ads. The amote app provides very clear and simple user interface, the icons are in white color on black background which reduces the battery usage significantly. Amote also have a widget with custom configurable buttons.

The Lirc-client is a free ads free application, it also provide a clean user interface , custom configurable IR macros, button layouts, it does not have a widget, but it has more shiny colorful buttons .

Its up to you to select which app will fit your needs, our personal choise is Amote Pro.

Irdroid USB IR Tranceiver Introduction

The USB IR dongle is a USB infrared tranceiver module. It has both transmit and receive infrared functionalities all in one unit.

Irdroid USB IR Transceiver v1.0In Stock / Price : $52  $37

The device has 3 powerful infrared LEDs which increases the IR transmit power and widens the transmit angle ( no need to point the device to the target equipment to be controlled). The Device is designed to get its power via the USB / no external power supply is needed . The module has a embedded infrared receiver module for capturing infrared signals @ 38khz frequency (most standard IR remotes work @ 38khz).


  • 3 High power IR leds for superb transmit range
  • Infrared Remote Control Decoder
  • Capture and replay Infrared signals
  • USB connection to the host system
  • Supported in LIRC and Winlirc
  • Open source software and hardware
  • compatibility with USB IR Toy drivers for linux & Windows
  • slick transparent USB enclosure

This module works with Winlirc, Lirc and it is part of the Irdroid Wifi unit . The module is powered by the USB bus (5V). The module transmit circuit includes 3 powerful infrared LEDs connected in series. The current flowing through the diodes is constant 100mA. The optical amplifiacation is based on the sum of the optical transmit power mW/Sr of all the three diodes. By using this technique we have increased the transmit range and the transmit angles (this means that the module does not have to be pointed towards the target equipment).

The pic 18F2550 microcontroller is a USB enabled device which is responsible for the transmitter / receiver part of the module, the PC / host communication is via CDC-ACM serial commands. The three infrared diodes are specially positioned one next to other in order to amplify the IR signal and to extend the transmission range. The Infrared receiver IC is located on the PCB bottom side. The Infrared receiver unit is very sensitive and allows adequate IR receiving from a distance of 15 meters.
