Smart Remote will continue to grow and get better based on your feedback and we’ll be continuously releasing new features and improvements. Here’s a quick summary of what Smart Remote supports today and what we’ll be working on next.

 

Compatible Wi-Fi devices and services today:

Media players (Roku, Kodi), smart lights (Philips Hue, LIFX, TP-Link), smart plugs (WeMo, TP-Link), Sonos speakers (only supports single speaker control; speaker group control and access to playlists/favorites are in development) and Spotify (only supports Wi-fi speakers compatible with Spotify Connect like Amazon Echo and Bose; the Sonos API does not currently support Spotify Connect; Bluetooth speakers are not supported).

 

Compatible with over 650,000 infrared-controllable devices today:

TVs, media players, set-top boxes, game consoles, AV devices, speakers and more. We support almost any IR device on the planet, but if you own an infrared-controllable device that isn’t in our database, no worries, you can teach Smart Remote to control any infrared device on the planet via infrared learning.

 

Main features available today:

  • AV Scenes: Control a group of AV devices together (turn on multiple AV devices simultaneously, switch to the right inputs, and combine relevant controls on one screen)

  • Home Scenes: Automate control of your smart home with a single button (e.g. dim your living room lights and start playing some music)

  • Light Groups: Group lights together and control multiple lights simultaneously

  • Point Mode: Locate devices, AV Scenes, and light groups for use in Point Mode

  • Multiple Smart Remote management: Add all your Smart Remotes to one single home so they all share the same setup, or create multiple homes so that each Smart Remote has its own setup.

  • Reorder and hide items in Smart Remote’s carousel or Smart Home list.

 

Beta features available today:

  • Ability to customize controls and screen layout (available for iOS; Android coming in November)

  • Ability to teach Smart Remote new buttons using IR learning

  • Spotify Connect (available for iOS and Android)

 

Priority features and integrations that we’ll be developing and launching in the coming months:

  • List all AV Scenes in one single menu on Smart Remote (similar to Home Scenes)

  • Apple TV via Bluetooth

  • Amazon Fire TV via Bluetooth

  • Sonos compatibility with speaker groups and playlist/favorites access

  • Alexa voice control for Smart Remote Home Scenes

  • WeMo & Lutron Switches

 

Smart home hubs and platforms to be launched in 2019:

  • Apple HomeKit

  • Samsung SmartThings Hub

  • Wink Hub

  • Insteon Hub

  • IFTTT

 

We hope you enjoy your Smart Remote experience and look forward to hearing from you!

  • Hi,

    Smart Remote is a great experience! 

    You say nothing about your API. Is-it this version? https://github.com/sevenhugs/smart-remote-sdk

    Thanks,

    • Pascal D Thank you for your feedback.

      This version of the SDK isn't actually up to date. A new SDK has been developed and it should be available soon. We will make sure to keep you posted as soon as it is available to customers.
