Android-Application to provide GUI to control IR appliance. Smart phone will contact a python-server on 9$ CHIP computer (it could be Raspberry-PI or any computer that runs python).

A python server that lsitens to Smart Phones and translates these text based commands to IR-codes based on model to ESP8266 MCU.

ESP82266 MCU to send IR control commands to IR appliance and ESP8226 also listens for HTTP-calls from a python-server for IR-commands
