Bluetooth remote control

The Bluetooth HID (Human Interface Device) profile is built on the USB (Universal Serial Bus) HID standard. Bluetooth mouse devices, keyboards and other devices for computer remote control can be developed using this standard.

Through the Bluetooth Specification, Human Interface Device (HID) Profile v1.0, a mobile phone can act as a HID device. When connected to a computer, the mobile phone acts like a combined keyboard and mouse. By assigning a combination of computer keyboard key presses to keys on the mobile phone keypad, the mobile phone can be used as a remote control device for computer applications.
