Meet the AnyMote: an innovative solution that turns your smartphone into a universal remote, allowing you to control your TV, computer, sound system, and more. It gives you control over infrared controllable electronics like your TV. This Bluetooth 4.0 device is pretty easy to use too. Just put it in a place where it has direct line of sight to the equipment you want to control. Launch its companion app on your phone or tablet, wait for the app to find the device, type in your information, and you are set.
The developers are planning to introduce and iPhone/iPad version of the app in the future. What’s neat about AnyMote Home is that you can create macros and automate things.
