Control your devices

Smart Remote lets you to control your favorite devices in several different ways:

  • Point Mode

  • Manual Selection Mode

  • Scenes and one-touch automation

  • Groups

Point Mode:

  • When you point Smart Remote at different devices and locations in your Smart Zone (the room where your Room Sensors are installed), Smart Remote automatically displays the right controls.

  • Point Mode gives you the ability to set locations in your Smart Zone for devices, services, scenes, and groups. When you point at a location that’s been created, Smart Remote automatically display controls for the item you located there.

  • When you point Smart Remote at two or more devices or items that are located near one another (less than 20 inches (.5m) from each other), a carousel will appear at the top of Smart Remote that allows you to swipe to select which device you want to control.

  • When you exit the area of your Smart Zone (the room where your Room Sensors are installed), Smart Remote will automatically disable Point Mode and enter Manual Selection Mode by swiping to select which device you want to control in Smart Remote’s carousel.

  • If you ever want to exit Point Mode and manually select which devices you want to control, just swipe down on the arrow at the top of the screen. The arrow will disappear and a line will appear below the carousel to indicate that you are in Manual Selection Mode. To exit Manual Selection Mode and enter Point Mode, just swipe the line up to the top of the screen until the line disappears and an arrow icon appears at the top of the screen.

  • Please refer to our articles on How to activate Point Mode and How to create locations to set this up.

Manual Selection Mode:

  • Use this mode to manually select which device you want to control by swiping in Smart Remote’s carousel.

  • This is the only mode available when you take Smart Remote outside of your Smart Zone (the room where your Room Sensors are installed).

  • To exit Point Mode and enter Manual Selection Mode, just swipe down on the arrow at the top of the screen. The arrow will disappear and a line will appear below the carousel to indicate that you are in Manual Selection Mode. To exit Manual Selection Mode and enter Point Mode, just swipe down on the arrow at the top of the screen until a line appears below the carousel. The arrow will disappear from the top of the screen.

Scenes and one-touch automation:

  • A/V Scenes: You can create A/V Scenes to control multiple A/V devices simultaneously or a sequence of actions involving one or more A/V devices with a single button. For example, you can create an A/V scene called “Watch Apple TV” that turns on your TV and A/V receiver, selects the right inputs, displays the Apple TV controls on Smart Remote, and also dims your lights by adding a Home Scene.

  • Home Scenes: You can create Home Scenes to control multiple smart home devices simultaneously with a single button. For example, you can create a Home scene called “Good Night” that turns off your speakers and your lights all at once.

Groups:

  • You can group lights together to control multiple lights simultaneously. For example, you can create a group called “Living Room” that controls all the lights in your living room.
