WinLIRC is a simple program for controlling infrared devices. By spending a few minutes setting up the application, you will be able to control your computer with an ordinary remote control using infrared signals. The only thing worth remembering is that for the PC to receive the remote control commands, an additional IR receiver must be installed. The device connects to the COM port and is configured in the program menu.

The WinLIRC installation also allows you to control other equipment with infrared signal control technology from a computer (e.g. stereo equipment).

This is a great program to be able to remotely control your devices. It's basically like using a remote control for your device - so so convenient esp when watching media. Even the IR receiver you attach to your device isn't unsightly, and is quite simple to install. Overall - a great product

I'm about to give you the best pro tip in your entire life. Get WinLIRC, buy an IR receiver, install on your work computer. Set it up so that when your receiver is facing away from your desk its getting IR from the indoor lighting, but when someone walks by, that reduces the amount of IR that it receives, then it switches my desktop back to my work program from reddit. Now it looks like I work at work.

Installing WinLRC is a breeze. Controlling all our infrared-enabled devices at home has been so much easier now as compared to before. You just need to install an IR receiver and you could connect all your IR devices to your computer. Highly recommended especially for your entertainment systems.

WinLIRC would be quite useful for someone who has a remote IR blaster attached to their laptop and wants to control their TV. Alternatively, this would be useful in a central hub device where you can can control lots of other IR enabled devices in the house.

It is a convenient for anybody and it is easy to use. It comes with frequent updates and additions that keeps current and running smoothly.

I love using WinLIRC for Windows because it's a program that that lets me manage the many infrared devices that I own. It works simply and efficiently so you have total control over those devices even when you're working remotely. Infrared devices can be more difficult to control remotely than typical ones but this program makes the job seem easy, even if you don't have much technical experience.
