iPhone Based Remote Controls Video Review

iPhone Based Remote Controls Video Review

Audioholics GoFundMe:

This is a weird review. If you look at this table you’ll see an assortment of remote controls. It may not look like remote controls, but just trust me for now. So for this video, we’re not reviewing a product per se, but more of a genre. Let me tell you first how it came about. There are a myriad of iPhone-based remote controls on the market right now. We don’t have all of them here, but we’ve sampled quite a few and we’ve formed more than a few opinions on the topic. I wanted to do this video because, well, the remote control market is a mess right now. Most companies don’t quite get it. And the range of “not getting it” goes from “could use a little work” to “completely clueless”. With that said, let’s review the types of remotes… Because there are really only three: IR-based, Bluetooth-based and WiFi-based. Now all of these remotes ultimately convert some kind of signal into the IR or infrared signals that all of our AV equipment expects to see. That’s what your standard remote control puts out. Since everything is built for IR, a good remote has to eventually end up there. A good remote also combines the 4 to 6 remote controls you may have lying around the living room into a single cohesive piece of software.

    Bluetooth 4.0 addresses the power consumption issues, but that said, they had to gimp its range and bandwidth some. Wifi looks to be the clear winner here. Can't wait to see more videos from you guys, come on step it up some!

    Realy, the future is directly WiFi connected AV boxes. It doesn't get better than my Android Phone app directly connected to my TV and controlling it without any extra equipment. All the products shown on this video are redundant.
