Ratings and Reviews
Exactly what I hoped for. It was pretty quick to set up, and easy. I was over the moon when it was able to recognize my ancient Sony amp, which I bought secondhand and never got a remote for, I can finally be my lazy self and control my stereo from my couch.
It easily found my Phillips smartbulbs, Xbox, and tv as well.
It didn’t seem to have anything PlayStation-wise besides the PS2, so that was disappointing, but I remain hopeful since it’s still in its early days, not to mention I don’t have much use for a remote for my PlayStation.
My only true complaints, and reason for 4 stars instead of 5, is,
1. that I, like most people, have most of my “remote-able” equipment located directly under my tv. This causes problems for the “Point Mode” where you point the remote at the device you want to control because it isn’t quite precise enough to recognize the different things under the tv. This was somewhat remedied by creating locations slightly off from their actual location, but still is a bit finicky.
2. The remote should have a “display all” menu option for viewing the different devices you have connected. The “carousel” interface is a bit cumbersome when you have so many bulbs and devices connected.
Beyond that, it’s awesome!!
(It’s important to note that the remote is still in its infancy and therefore not at its full power yet. Buyer beware of this when considering!)
Best smart remote setup ever
I’ve been programming smart remotes for over 20 years. Anyone that has ever used buggy laggy proprietary software to do it (I’m looking at you Sony and Logitech) where every minor change needs you to go back to your computer (usually only windows apps) and have tons of usb connectivity issues will appreciate how truly easy this remote is to setup!
Also the company pushes constant update fixing items and adding features. Again not something the other companies do!
I live this product and have 3 in different rooms and feel this is hands down the best remote on the market. I was a backer on Kickstarter and would do it all over again!
Sure there is room for improvement and they are working on it! I’d love the ability to control out of site IR devices via a hub or something but I’m willing to run IR repeater systems just to use the remote it’s that good!
This is what I’ve been looking for for years
Smart Remote is a great product, it finally allowed me to get my whole family being able to enjoy my complex setup at home.
