Create an AV Scene

Here we will show you what an AV Scene can do and how to set it up.

Control a group of AV devices

Example: Turn on your TV and media player and switch to the right AV input—all with a single button.

 


Combine controls for multiple AV devices on one screen

Example: Browse content on your media player and adjust volume through your AV receiver on one unified control screen.

 


Add control of smart home devices to an AV Scene

Example: Dim the lights and stop the music when you start a “Watch Movie” scene.

 

 


Important note about controlling infrared devices

When activating an AV Scene, all infrared-controlled devices need to be visible by Smart Remote’s infrared transmitter. 

 


Easily fix an AV Scene that is not working properly

If a device is not responding to your commands or is out of sync with other devices (e.g. TV turns off when everything else turns on), swipe left to access a screen to fix the state of that device. 


Here is how to create an AV Scene:

Part I: Create an AV Scene using the app

Steps

  1. Make sure your phone is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as Smart Remote

  2. Launch the Smart Remote app and go to the "AV Scenes" tab

  3. Select “Create an AV Scene”

  4. Enter a name for the AV Scene you want to create

  5. If desired, you can change the icon for your AV Scene by tapping the icon next to the name you entered

  6. Continue creating your scene by selecting the AV devices you want to control and selecting answers to these questions in the app:

    1. Which display would you like to use?

    2. Which input/source would you like to use?

    3. Is your source connected via an A/V receiver?

    4. Which device do you use to control sound?

  7. You also have the option to add Home Scenes to add control of smart home devices to an AV Scene when your AV Scene is turned on and off:

    1. When your AV Scene is turned ON do:

    2. When your AV Scene is turned OFF do:

  8. Press “Save” and read the information displayed in the app

Part II: Record the AV Scene using Smart Remote

Steps

  1. To finish creating your AV Scene, follow the instructions on Smart Remote.

  2. The first thing you will be asked to do is press the power button on Smart Remote to turn on all the devices you added to the AV Scene. Make sure you point Smart Remote at any infrared (IR) devices you have in the scene and that there is a direct line of sight between Smart Remote and each IR device.

  3. Make sure all your devices are powered on. If not, press the power button to turn on the device or devices that are not turned on. When you verify that all the devices in the AV Scene are on, press “Everything is ON”.

  4. Select the right inputs for each of your devices by pressing the right and left arrows next to the name of each device. When all your devices have the right input, you should see and/or hear input/source device you selected.  When this happens, press “Inputs are OK”.

  5. Smart Remote has now recorded all the required input settings to activate your AV Scene and your AV Scene has been successfully added. Press “finish” to exit.

You now have access to your AV Scene in Smart Remote’s carousel. To create a location for your AV Scene list in Point Mode, long press on the AV Scene list in the carousel and follow the on-screen instructions.
