Wireless controlled lightdimmer using PIC12F629

The meaning from this design is to build it in -i.e. a shaded lamp- and to switch this lamp on and off the normal way, just like it was switched before the dimmer was build in, then you could by exception dimming the lamp more or less with your TV remote control. When you switch the power on there will follow a soft-start till the lamp burns at the previously adjusted dim level. With the '0' button in TV mo ...

NETWORK EQUIPMENT RESETTER using PIC16F628

Introduction This program is a network power resetter. It controls a solid-state-relay that is in series with 110VAC that supplies power to a satellite internet receiver, various routers, etc. Once every 24 hours it drops power for 10 seconds to allow the receiver and routers to start clean, something that seems to be necessary to keep receivers and routers from "losing themselves" after running too long! F ...

Build your own Wireless Network detector using PIC12F629

What This Is This project is for a small electronic unit that allows the user to sense the presence and relative signal strength of wireless hotspots. It can be worn as a pendant or carried in a pocket. It is "always on" and communicates the presence and signal strength of an in-range hotspot by way of sequences of pulses - like a heartbeat you can feel. The stronger and faster the "heartbeat", the stronger ...

Power Pic RGB with Infrared remote control using PIC12F675

Power Pic RGB with Infrared remote controlis a circuit that generates colors using a RGB LED and can be controlled using any infrared remote controller capable compatible with the Sony® Sirc code. This circuit is the third evolution of Pic RGB project [1] in which the goal was to control a RGB LED and randomly generate colors. This time the goal is to use a remote control to change the colors, either by cho ...

Wifi robot vehicle controlled by PIC16F628A

Introduction Wifi Robot: A remote control car that can be driven over the internet or with a laptop wirelessly from up to 500m away. It has a live-feed network camera so that it can be driven without line of sight and a horn so that you can honk at people. A while ago I discovered the Linksys WRT54GL router. It's very hacker-friendly in that it runs Linux and some of the hardware has been reverse engineered ...

IR Remote Control Repeater using PIC12F629

This circuit receives the signal from a IR remote control, like those used to control your TV or DVD player and allows the signal to be repeated in another location.   To get a 40Khz carrier requires an output to be toggled on and off 40,000 times a second, which means the code needs to execute in 1,000,000/40,000 instruction cycles; this gives a very tight 25 instructions in which to do the job. Fortunatel ...
