I'm completely new to arduino. I want to control my light in the living room with my android device over arduino (with RedFly wifi shield). I've just written the code and it works perfect! I love this little arduino board
Now I have to "hack" the remote for the light. Here is a picture:
I googled around and found a lot of tutorials for hacking remotes. I have only a simple one - just a switch for "light on" and another for "light off". If I'm correct, I have to connect the power to the arduino (it also works with only 5 V, somebody else just did that, too) and then I have to "fake" the button click on the switch.
To fake that click, I can solder a cable on the left side of the switch. Then, in the arduino, I control it like a LED to turn on (give HIGH signal on the port).
Is that correct? I just want to understand it before I destroy 10 remotes ;-)
Thank you for your replies
