Beyond Your Smart TV, Universal Remotes And Apps Can Control Your Whole Smart Home
Universal remote apps can replace your regular remotes. This means that you can now use your smartphone as a remote instead.
They can stand in for several different remotes at once. You can choose the remote you want from the app…
…and use it to communicate with your TV. These apps can also control the various IoT devices in your home. The universal remote apps work with a built-in IR blaster, Bluetooth, or Wi-Fi connectivity. For those who need a bridge, they can use the IR-WiFi converter. This hub-like device will help you translate the signals and communicate efficiently.
In most cases, these remote apps are free. Sometimes, you might have to purchase a physical remote, such as Amazon’s Echo Dot or Echo. If you use the apps and wish to get rid of the advertisements, you can pay for an upgrade.
Amazon Alexa, SmartThings Mobile, and Google Home are the popular options. Other options include AnyMote Smart Universal Remote, SURE Universal Remote, and Universal TV Remote by WaveSpark.
AnyMote makes use of both IR and Wi-Fi tech to control devices and it is available for both iOS and Android devices. SURE Universal Remote is available in Google Play Store and can help you control almost every connected device you have in your home. Unified Remote and Yatse are other reliable universal remote apps.
