Too Many Remote Controls
Do you have too many remote controls in your home? It happens. Each component has its own remote. Or, even its own app. And, that adds up to clutter and inconvenience. You’ve been there. It’s Friday night you sit down to watch a movie which requires shuffling among several remotes. So inconvenient, since turning each component on, and making sure it is set up right can eat into your movie time. And, fumbling around for the right remote in the dark is just annoying. Then there is the inevitability of one of your remotes slipping down the side of the couch.
The reality is, there are so many devices to control in our homes nowadays. In fact, most people have at least four. And, the more you have, gaming consoles, speakers, sound systems, streaming media players, smart locks, lighting and so on, the more remotes you have. In short, it’s complicated — almost too complicated. The good news is there’s a cure for this all-too common issue: A universal remote. But, keep in mind, not every universal remote is the same.
How to Choose a Universal Remote Control
Just like there are too many remote controls for your media center right now, there are also many factors to consider when choosing the right universal remote solution. Finding the best universal remote really depends on your situation. With so many different universal remotes to choose from, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. Whether you need it to control a few things like your TV, sound bar and cable box. Or, you want to control several things like your home theater gear plus lights, shades and door locks is a matter of choice. For this reason, we offer some insight below on some important things to consider.
Things to Consider When Buying a Universal Remote:
- How many devices you would like to operate (four or more)?
- Which brands do you have at home (compatibility)?
- Which features are important to you (smart control)?
The best universal remote solutions extend beyond your home entertainment system, controlling things like lights, window shades, and temperature.
