Aeroh One, Hackable IR Remote to Add Internet Automation to Remote-Controlled Devices

A hackable IR remote board that can turn any remote-controlled device into an internet-connected device.

Mountain View-based startup Aeroh has taken to Crowd Supply to launch its new Aeroh One, a hackable IR remote for adding Internet automation to remote-controlled gadget with support for services like Alexa, Siri, Google Assistant, and IFTTT.

Aeroh One can be easily mounted on top of the existing infrared remote receiver of your equipment thanks to its compact footprint. The company also provides a wide range of mounting options that you can either order or 3D models you can freely download to print yourself.

How does it work?

Aeroh One can be attached to your old tower fan TV while you can continue to use your existing old OEM remote.

Simply stated, Aeroh One has an infrared remote receiver in the front, and can proxy the signals that it receives. It is programmed to emit remote signals based on what your equipment can understand. With this infrared remote receiver, you can also record custom IR signals and program the Aeroh One to work with new equipment.

In the words of Shiv Deepak Muddada, founder and CEO of Aeroh, "With Aeroh One, make your smart home smarter, without breaking the bank!"

Compatible apps and services

You can use the Aeroh One's mobile app or easily integrate Aeroh One into your Alexa, Google Assistant, Siri, or IFTTT system.

What's more, you can use your phone to remotely control your device manually. Furthermore, you can set up automated triggers based on time of the day, weather, geolocations, and many more via IFTTT. You could even give unique names to your appliances to operate with voice commands with your voice assistant of choice.

Features and specifications

Aeroh One's WiFi module is designed around the ESP32-­C3­-MINI-­1 by Espressif, while its infrared LED driver is based on a Microchip ATtiny167. For its infrared receiver, Aeroh One uses a Vishay TSMP77000TT that supports 20 kHz to 60 kHz IR signals with all data formats and the infrared emitter employs a Kingbright AA3528F3S, a 940nm infrared emitter with a 120° viewing angle.

The Aeroh One has its IR repeater in the default mode and able to record, reply and save signals (commands) over mobile app.


This project's design files, firmware code, and mobile apps are open source and available on GitHub.

You can sign up on its Crowd Supply page to be notified when the campaign goes live.
