Remote Control

One of the problems of having a range of different electronic gadgets is they all come with different controllers. An entire industry has now been created to help us deal with all the remote controls our devices have introduced into our lives. So tune in here to learn about different programmable and universal remote controls.

 

Pronto Peel is a universal IR TV remote control

by Edwin

When it comes to remote controls, you can be sure that the modern home has a whole lot of those. After all, with the sheer number of devices that are in the living room itself, not to mention even our fans and lights being controlled digitally these days, keeping track of those remotes can be quite a pain and hassle. Which is why a universal remote control would be pretty handy, but Pronto has decided to narrow down the fields further with the $49.99 Pronto Peel, a universal IR TV remote control specially meant for iOS devices.

In other words, with the Pronto Peel, your iOS-powered device gets all the more versatile, as it can now control up to 8 different IR devices with your iPhone alone. The free app (but of course!) will be compatible with devices running iOS 7 or above, and the Peel base unit’s IR blaster emits signals in a 360° radius, which means it is a whole lot more flexible than having to point at a specific device. It will rely on Bluetooth Smart (LE) to connect to the Peel base unit, boasting of a wireless range of 80 feet. It has an average battery life of a year with the quartet of AA batteries powering it.

The Triggertrap turns your phone into a DSLR shutter remote

TriggerTrap

When you want to take photos with a DSLR camera and don’t have an entire crew to help you, it’s time to invest in accessories. This means devices such as flashes or stabilizers like a tripod, but for shots where you are part of the picture you’ll need a shutter remote to snap the image. There’s normally a ten second timer to take images, which you can do a lot with let me tell you, but it would be nice if you could set up and snap the image once rather than leaving it all up to how quickly you can move.

Nerf Terradrone

Do you ever wish your kids were combat ready so they can take down an evil government at the drop of a hat? Hopefully that is never the case, but kids do love to shoot the crap out of each other with Nerf guns, and I don’t blame them because it’s fun! While we’ve come a long way in the development of foam weaponry, do you ever get worried that we might be going too far?

Ray Super Remote plays nice with Nest Learning Thermostat now

by Edwin

ray-super-remoteRay Enterprises happens to be a next generation consumer technology company, and they have rightfully made an announcement that is on par with their company’s stature – that is, their Ray Super Remote being able to function with the Nest Learning Thermostat in order to provide Ray customers with control of their homes, and this control will go beyond the living room to boot. Ray happens to be an intuitive, touchscreen universal remote that looks and feels like a smartphone, and yet is full well capable of controlling thousands of devices, while providing recommendations on what to watch on TV. The remote would play nice with the Nest Thermostat as well via a new app developed by Ray, which was exclusively created for the remote itself.

The NOTTI Smart Mood Light is a visual smartphone notification system

NOTTI Smart Light

When you want to get work done, you should keep your phone as far away from you as possible. All of your social media hubs, friends and family that are ripe and ready for conversation, and new game apps for you to download will suck away every spare minute you have. No seriously, I just picked up my phone and lost five minutes while writing this.

The MokaCam wants to be the GoPro Killer

by Caitlyn

We love taking photos, videos, panoramas and more, but sometimes our phones aren’t exactly quick on the draw. The quality and speed of our phones is only so great, but on the opposing side, getting a good quality camera means not being able to upload everything as quickly. Everyone has heard of GoPro, and while it’s great and all, you have a specific period of time to record before needing to recharge. It is pretty top-tier though, and you don’t normally come across contenders that can pull a new trick out of the hat while keeping the same level of quality and convenience.

survivor-play-remoteSlightly more than a week ago, we brought you word that there is a spanking new generation of Apple TV that is ready and waiting to cater to the masses as the never ending quest for entertainment in the living room continues.
