WiFi Remote

I have a 42in Samsung TV … model UN43TU8000FXZA

I have a son that tends to leave the damn remote all over the house and/or stuck between cushions. I see in various places and types that there is or can be WiFi remotes.

I’m looking to make a web based, browser based remote so that when I have my laptop out and the son has again lost the remote I can use my laptop to change the channel as such.

I have some skills in programming, but I really stink at starting from scratch. How do I, where is a good source to begin creating a browser based remote ( ok … if it’s possible … having seen wifi remotes I’m sure it has to be some sort of TCP/IP web based technology )

Any help in pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.


I think you will find some solutions in GitHub
