Remote controls equipment via Wi-Fi, IR, RF
Conspin has unveiled the Andi-One, a universal remote control based on Google's Android OS. The device resembles a typical smartphone, offering a 3.5-inch 320x480 touchscreen that handles the control UI or Android apps. Users can configure up to 50 devices, with remote signals communicated via infrared, radio frequency or Wi-Fi.
Controls up to 20 electronic devices
PowerA has introduced the latest product in its line of iPhone accessories, a universal remote case. The case is paired with the company’s corresponding iPhone application, enabling users to control multiple electronic devices via infrared (IR). The software is capable of storing profiles for up to 20 different remotes, with a variety of potential functions such as playback or volume. Users can also combine buttons from multiple devices under one interface.
Thinkflood has announced an app for the iPhone and iPod touch that works with the company's RedEye, remote control system. When used in conjunction with the RedEye hub, the app allows users to control televisions, DVRs, game systems, and other home-entertainment devices with their iPhone or iPod touch. The software communicates with the hub using Wi-Fi and does not require line-of-sight to work. RedEye receives the iPhone’s command and uses infrared signals to control the designated devices.

Sporting a two-inch color LCD screen and soft, backlit buttons, the Digital R50 can control the functions of 18 home theater system components by copying the codes of their associated infrared remotes.
