Cell Phone Controlled Home Appliance circuit

Circuit Description:

Ever Imagined controlling your home appliances using your cell phone. You can find a lot of circuits for this application. But they make use of Telephone. I modified the circuit and redesigned it to make it compatible with normal cell phone headphone. Just connect the your phone headphone jack to the phone and the connections to the circuit as shown in the circuit. The relays are connected using the resistor and transistor. Use ULN2803 to reduce the circuit size and increase the performance. The connections from the output of flip-flops has to be given to the inputs of the buffer and relays has to be connected to the buffer.

Normally the tip of the headset is connected to the circuit to the 0.1uF capacitor as shown in the circuit diagram. The ground pin of headphone is connected to the ground of the circuit.

Circuit Diagram:


When you press keys in your Phone, the other person will hear some tones with respect to keys pressed. This tones are based on the DTMF technology. Data is transmitted in terms of pair of tones. The receiver detects the valid pair and gives the appropriate BCD code as the output of the DTMF decoder IC.

Circuit for controlling 8 appliances using TV Remote

IR decoder Circuit:

The IR circuit can be used to switch devices using TV Remote. Normal circuits can switch only one device. But using this circuit, different devices can be controlled using same remote with different switches. In this circuit, we interfaced 8 devices. These devices are switched using remote keypad -1 to 8. AT89S52 microcontroller is used to control the inputs and outputs. TSOP 1738 (infrared receiver) is used to receive the infrared signals from TV Remote. ULN2803 (High voltage, high current) buffer is used to drive relays.

RF Controlled Home Appliance Circuit

Circuit Description:


This circuit consists of Transmitter and Receiver section. The circuit can be used to control home appliances within a range of 30 meters. In open area, you can expect a range of 100 meters. The circuit comprises HT12 Encoder and Decode IC's. HT12 Encoder is used in the transmitter (remote) circuit where as HT12E is used in receiver circuit. The Encode IC encodes the 4 bits of data and transmit it serially to to RF Transmitter module. These 433Mhz transmitter and receiver modules operate using ASK Modulation.

Computer Controlled Home Appliance circuit

you can control your home appliances very easily using this circuit. Use ULN2803 for controlling 8 devices. just connect pin-1 of parallel port connector to pin-1 of ULN2803. You will have 8 channels in ULN2803 and 9th pin is ground for that IC.

TV Remote controlled home appliance circuit

This is one of the popular EFY circuit. i build this one very easily. The circuit consists of very less components and simple in design.

Connect this circuit to any of your home appliances (lamp, fan, radio, etc) to make the appliance turn on/off from a TV, VCD or DVD remote control. The circuit cane activated from up to 10 metres. The 38kHz infrared (IR) rays generated by the remote control are received by IR receiver module TSOP1738 of the circuit. Pin 1 of TSOP1738 is connected to ground, pin 2 is connected to the power supply through resistor R5 and the output is taken from pin 3. The output signal is amplified by transistor T1 (BC558).

TV Remote controlled home appliance circuit with 555 timer

This is my first post and and this is the first circuit i made. There are many types of circuits for controlling home appliances using TV Remote. In fact I had confused a lot when I am a beginner searching for this type of circuits. The circuit here 555 timer IC to avoid fast switching. you can only switch the circuit after 3 seconds.
IR remote sensor IC TSOP 1738 is used for recieving the signal. Normally when no signal is falling on IC3 the output of it will be high.This makes Q1 OFF.When a signal of 38 KHz from the TV remote falls on the IC3 its output goes low.This makes Q1 conduct and a negative pulse is obtained at pin 2 of IC 1 NE 555.Due to this IC1 wired as a monostable multivibrator produces a 4 Sec long high signal at its out put.
