— Recently various consumer electronic devices can be controlled by remote controls. Usually home appliances such as TV, radio, Blu-ray players, home theater, air conditioner, and room lighting come with remote controls that are used to select items and change status. As a result, users need to get familiar with the different features and the operations of many remote controls. For some manufacturers, they want to build these remote controls into one dongle with smartphone. In this paper, we develop remote control dongle to connect smartphones. Signals generated by the application are converted to the PCM signals through the earphone jack of smartphone. In addition we develop user-friendly mobile apps as an interface to users.
