Created by Sidekick the Beep allows you to quickly locate your lost remote control takes the form of a protective silicon sleeve that slips over your remote. Using a remote button you can trigger a sounding alarm to alert you to the location of your remote control. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more.
Early bird pledges are available from $14 or roughly £11 and worldwide shipping is expected to take place during November 2019. Currently Beep is available for the Roku and Amazon Fire TV remote controls but will be made available for other devices in the future if the crowdfunding campaign is a success.
Once you have fitted your remote control inside the sleeve simply place the button near your armchair, couch or bed to easily trigger the alert when the remote is lost.
