What is IR Blaster?

An Infrared Blaster or IR Blaster is a device or component that acts as a remote and is used to control remote enabled devices such as TVs, DVD player, AC, Set Top Box etc. So if your Smartphone has got IR Blaster then you control virtually any electronic device that can be operated by a remote.

IR (Infrared) LED

An IR Blaster or IR Transmitter emulates the functionality of remote for any device. IR Blaster works by emitting an infrared signal or infrared light to the device and then controlling it various functions. The infrared light is emitted by small LED and it is invisible to naked eye. This infrared signal or light contains a particular infrared code in form of pattern for each device and its functions, so that the receiving device can recognize it and then operate accordingly. For example LG and Samsung TVs infrared codes will be different and also for its various functions like volume, power on/off etc. Therefore if your Smartphone is having an IR Blaster then it can act as Universal Remote. There are also some good applications for IR Blaster that can convert your Smartphone as a Universal Remote.

What is an External IR Blaster?

An external blaster is a add-on device that can be attached to your android smartphone and turning it into a Universal remote. There are two types of external IR blasters, one plug into the 3.5mm audio port of your phone and other one in the micro-USB port of your smartphone and it only works if your smartphone supports OTG (On-the-Go).

External IR blasters are not that successful and they do not work on every smartphone. They need special IR Blaster software of their own for their working. Also the range of these external IR blasters is not good. I advice you to not to buy these external IR blasters as you might be wasting your money on them.
