IR remote control is the most common way to control home appliances nowadays. Each legacy device is controlled with their own remote controller, and it is not standardized yet. Although it is possible to handle multiple devices with a integrated remote controller, not all the devices and command sets are supported. There are also limitations in expandability especially when new or special command sets are required. In this paper, a efficient zigbee bridge which transforms a command set sent via

When a new command is sent, the bridge learn the new code. When a existing code is sent, the bridge dispatches applicable IR command to the appliance. With this approach, it is possible to obtain expandability and flexibility for new commands, and increase the communication efficiency up to 56.8 times. 키워드 지그비 브릿지, 레거시 기기, 통합 리모컨, 학습 리모컨
