Irdroid Macro Remote

Irdroid Macro Remote

Irdroid Macro Remote

The Irdroid Macro Remote is a infrared remote control client (LIRC Client) for Android, that will allow you to create infrared macro sequences or group infrared commands.The application is perfect for automating infrared remote control task such as turning on the lights via infrared, executing a sequence of IR commands in a click of a button. With this app you can automate your TV, STB, DVB Audio and many other infrared controlled equipment. The application requires a fully setup and operational LIRC daemon (for Linux) or Winlirc (for Windows). The application is specially designed to work with the Irdroid WIFI infrared remote control modules. If you want to access the full benefits that the app provide, you may consider purchasing a Irdroid WIFI module from

App features:

– Create Infrared Remote control macro sequences
– Standard support for LIRC and Winlirc
– A database with more than 2000 supported remote (needs a configured LIRC daemon)
– Add macro shortcuts to home screen for ease of access
– Infrared Automation via infrared macro sequences
– Execute a macro directly from the list of macros by tapping on the macro
– Execute a macro via tapping on its home screen shortcut

Sample usage:

– Adjust the picture settings automatically on your TV via infrared macro sequence
– Set the sleep timeout of your TV
– Turn on all your TV’s and set the STB to your favourite channel
– Turn on your STB, switch to your favourite channel and select equalizer preset
– Turn on/off LED IR controlled lighting adjust colors etc.

Application usage:

The application allows you to setup custom Infrared remote control sequences/macros, from the app main screen tap on Add in order to add new Macro. Enter the name of your new macro and tap on SAVE. In order to add command sequences to your new macro long click on the newly created macro and select “Edit Macro” a new screen will pop up and you can use the Add button to add custom commands to your newly created macro. To execute a macro just tap on the macro name. After you create your new macro you may create a custom shortcut to the macro by long tapping on the macro name from the list of macros. Tap on Shortcut and a new shortcut to your macro will be added to the home screen. Executing a macro from a shortcut is a matter of just tapping on the shortcut.

The application is open source, licensed under GNU GPL v2.0 . You are free to distribute, modify and use for commercial purposes. You can read more about this application by visiting .

Before rating this app please make sure that you have a fully operational LIRC server running, the app will not work (will not show a list of remotes if there is no server to connect to)

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.

Introducing Irdroid – Wifi

Irdroid v3 (wifi)

Irdroid v3 (wifi)

Irdroid wifi a.k.a. Irdroid version 3 is a state of the art universal remote control, that turns your Android device into a fully functional infrared remote control for your IR equipment. The third version of Irdroid consist of a small Linux device with Ethernet port a wifi interface and a USB interface. It has router functionality so that you can connect via Ethernet and get a wifi 802.11n & Infrared functionality thanks to the Irdroid USB transceiver dongle, which connects to the Irdroid wifi device.

The Irdroid wifi device has the latest version of LIRC, running and listening for remote clients @ 8765. The device has its own 1800 mAH battery which keeps the device running for up to 4 hours. This functionality combines the mobility of Irdroid v1.0 and the comfort of using wifi to control your infrared enabled devices.


  • Universal IR remote control for Android
  • Extended remote control range (10+ meters )
  • Compatibility with many LIRC clients for Android & windows/Linux
  • Wide operating angle (no need to point the device to the TV )
  • KISS design (Keep it simple)
  • Home automation via IR controllable devices.
  • Wifi 802.11n 150mbps Router
  • 1800maH power bank
  • Open source software & *hardware

Irdroid wifi device features:

  • LIRC 0.9+
  • LIRC conf files downloadable via simple web interface
  • Wifi 802.11n router
  • Open source software
  • Slim & slick design

Irdroid USB IR dongle device features:

  • USB infrared transceiver
  • Compatibility with USB IRTOY drivers
  • Extended remote control range
  • Plug and Play (Uses USB ACM serial drivers)
  • Receive & transmit functionalities
  • 940nm wavelength @ 38khz
  • 3 powerful IR led to increase the TX range
  • Small PCB design & a slick transparent enclosure

How it works?

The Irdroid wifi, together with the Irdroid USB IR dongle would allow you to have a wifi to IR remote control functionality for you Android device. The Irdroid USB IR Dongle has to be connected to the Irdroid wifi USB port. The Irdroid wifi device can be switched on and it will automatically recognize the Irdroid USB IR Dongle, load the drivers for it and you will be able to connect to Irdroid Wi-Fi’s SSID “Irdroid”.

The Irdroid wifi can function as a router together with its IR functionality, the only thing that has to be done is to connect an Ethernet cable to Irdroid Wifi (by default it obtains IP addresses via DHCP) then you have a fully functional wireless internet router with an infrared functionality. You just need to connect to an SSID “Irdroid”. There are just two things in addition that you need to do – to select and configure an LIRC client and download it via Google Play, and to select your LIRC conf files for your target devices.

LIRC clients for Android

  • Amote
  • Lirc-client

Normally the above lirc clients would require you to setup a lirc server to connect to. For Irdroid wifi the settings are:

Server name:              Irdroid

Server IP:         

Server Port:                8765



The Lirc conf files are available for download via a simple web user interface which will allow you to add a remote via a single click from the list of supported remotes in the database.The remote downloader interface is web based and very simple for use. For downloading lirc conf files the Irdroid wifi has to be connected via an Ethernet cable to the Internet. The Irdroid wifi module software / operating system is open source. It is based on openwrt with lirc preinstalled in the firmware and usb acm driver that support Irdroid USB IR dongle. All the Irdroid’s wifi software will be available for download from the Irdroid’s website download section. The Irdroid USB IR dongle is based on DP USB IR TOY with modifications to extend the Infrared remote control range and to fit into a slick USB Dongle enclosure.

We have designed the Irdroid USB IR dongle with 3 powerful infrared LEDs in order to increase the infrared transmit power and to widen the transmit angle, so that you don’t need to point the device to the IR equipment that you need to control.

Irdroid USB IR Dongle

The Irdroid USB IR Dongle is a usb to infrared transceiver module. You can both send & receive infrared remote control codes with it. You can use it with Irdroid wifi & or with LIRC/Winlirc for Windows / Linux. With the Irdroid USB IR Dongle you can simply scan your remote codes in case your remote is not in the LIRC database of supported remotes. The device is based on DP USB IRTOY, with hardware modifications to allow an extended remote control range and a wider operating angle (you don’t need to point it to your IR equipment).

The Irdroid wifi and the Irdroid USB IR transceiver are to be released mid November 2013 and the approximate price for the two modules would be around $70
