First, you have to verify that the transmitter send out signal at which frequency (you can check this by calculating central frequency of LM567, refer to LM567 datasheet).

Because, received signal is week so that, after detect the signal, we have to amplify it, then the LM567 do this task, if the main frequency of the signal is the same as the central frequency of LM567, then the output pin is grounded (or high, I don't remeber), this causes the relay be on or off.

The above is the main idea of your circuit. You can simulate it using Circuit Maker or some similar softwares.

Any question?

Apologies to Semiconductor, but his English was a little confusing :?

As he already mentioned, the incoming signal needs to be a modulated IR signal, at the same frequency the PLL is tuned to.

The first IC is a simple non-inverting amplifier, amplifying the incoming signal by about 100 times - this increases the range greatly.

The second IC is a PLL tone detector, it looks for a specific frequency on it's input pin, when it finds this frequency it switches it's output - so it's important that it's tuned to the correct frequency, the variable resistor is to trim the centre frequency for maximum range.

The circuit is a simple IR remote receiver, you can buy ready made 3 pin IC's which do this, tuned to about 38KHz, commonly used in almost everything with IR remote control.
