1. A system for integrating infrared remote controls of home appliances, comprising:
a smart electronic device having an operating system to perform an application program, wherein the application program displays an user interface and stores multiple infrared remote control codes for respectively controlling multiple home appliances, wherein each infrared remote control code corresponds to a control command inputted from the user interface and the smart electronic device outputs a corresponding infrared remote control code;
a transmission device connected to the smart electronic device and having:
an infrared receiver connected to the first microprocessor and receiving the corresponding infrared remote control code;
a first microprocessor serving to convert the corresponding infrared remote control code into a wireless control signal; and
a first wireless transmission module connected to the first microprocessor and transmitting the wireless control signal; and
multiple conversion devices mounted on the respective home appliances, each conversion device having:
a second wireless transmission module wirelessly connected to the first wireless transmission module and receiving the wireless control signal;
a second microprocessor connected to the second wireless transmission module and converting the wireless control signal into the corresponding infrared remote control code; and
an infrared transmitter connected to the second microprocessor and transmitting the corresponding infrared remote control code to a corresponding home appliance.
