Using FLIRC with Amazon devices for use with uControl

Some devices no longer have built in IR receivers to to enable them to be used with the uControl app you can add a third party device called FLIRC.

This connects to a source device via USB and turns IR codes into control commands the source device recognises.

The FLIRC device can be found here –

If you are using this with a firestick you will also need an OTG cable like this –


    Install the flirc software on your computer, and install this profile into the FLIRC – Fire TV

    Connect the OTG cable to the Firestick, then the FLIRC then the power.

Next locate the IR transmitter from you HDANYWHERE device on or near to the FLIRC.

Once this is done you can install the FireTV(FLIRC) IR pack and control your Amazon device with uControl.
