About AMOTE Pro - LIRC Client

Important! This app needs a running LIRC server on a Windows or Linux system and you will probably also need special hardware for sending the infrared commands. I would recommend using the Irdroid Wifi system that works out the box with AMOTE (find it here or built your own system using a Raspberry Pi and a simple DIY transmitter like this one

AMOTE Pro is a client for LIRC (the Linux Infrared Remote Control). Connect an infrared transmitter/blaster to your server running LIRC, create or download a remote control configuration file from And you are ready to build your own network based Universal Remote control out of your tablet or phone.

Hi, the app is workig very fine and you can customize nearly everything to your needs for your lirc remote. The only thing that could be better is the widget. Herr you can customize almost nothing and only set 4 buttons.

by Z####:

Very nice application - has very big potential. I hope developer will keep working on it.

I've tried 2 other Android LIRC clients, this is the easiest to set-up and the most powerful. I'm using this to control my Raspberry Pi IR transmitter and it works very well and reliably. Great support from the developer too!

by ####:

Intuitive, elegant and just plain works. If you need an LIRC client app get this. If you don't know what that means, do a little research and then get this.
