Hey guys, I'm pretty new to programming and the hardware of Arduino, but I have a little project in mind that should be fairly easy, and a good place to start learning.
I bought one of these (link below) for about $15 the other day, and thought how cool it would be to take one of the remotes and hook it up to an Arduino to be able to initially control from my PC, but then hopefully be able to control it from my smart phone as well. The idea is just to use the arduino board to simulate one of the three buttons being pressed and that's it. I'm just not sure how I'd go about doing that, would I need some sort of micro relay or are there boards available that have exactly what I need already? I want to hopefully buy a cheap, small board as it will be dedicated to this project and probably wont ever have a new home on another project.
Hopefully that all makes sense, I'm just seeking advice on how I should go about doing this in the easiest way, as well as possible parts and what arduino would be right for me.
