Check out the promotional video below to learn more about the latest addition to the range in the form of the IR Universal Smart Hub.
Since the first release of the the IR Universal Remote application it has required an Android device with a built in IR blaster to work. The only way to support devices without an IR Blaster was to build an external unit with an IR blaster built in. Thus the IR Universal Smart Hub was created. As an added bonus the IR Universal Smart Hub doesn’t require a phone or any apps to work. It is an IoT based solution that allows control from any device that has web capabilities and is connected to the same network. Control the hub from your phone, computer, or maybe even your fridge if it has web capabilities.
IR Universal Remote is an Android application I released back in 2013. The application allows users to control TVs, Cable Boxes, Radios, Air Conditioners, Fans and more from their Android phone or tablet. How to Send IR Codes? The IR Universal Database has over 500,000 unique individual infrared codes. There are thousands of supported devices already available. By using the IR Universal Remote app or website you will be able to access and send any of the 500,000 IR codes using the IR Universal Smart Hub.
