San Diego – Satechi today announced the availability of its Universal Remote dongle and RemoteBean app that allow any iOS device to be used as a universal remote control for any IR component.
The plug-and-play dongle connects to the iOS device’s 3.5mm jack. Once plugged in, users download the free RemoteBean app, enter the activation code and program all multimedia electronics in the room on the iPhone or iPad. The user-friendly app guides users through each room in the house to customize any device that comes with a remote control.
The app contains a database of all major manufacturers and thousands of products, the company said. If a device is not in the database already, users can teach the app to control the devices via a learning function.
The Satechi Universal Remote dongle is available for an introductory price of $24.99 at Satechi.net and Amazon.com. The RemoteBean app is available free on iTunes.
