This product saves people from having to spend 10k on 'solutions' from dinosaur HT companies like Crestron to get outdated giant brick remotes to control all their HT devices; usually on a equipment rack inside a closet. Using a tablet is the future of remotes. It's no wonder this device is consistently sold out because all the HT installers are gobbling them up.
On the downside, there were just a few situations where I lost blue-tooth synchronization and others where I had to bring my beacon back from sleep by touching the top button.
Overall, great product.
Please add haptic options so the IPAD and iphone vibration features can work when pressing a button. This is major missing feature and these IOS devices have this function built-in; might as well use them.
Please create the ability to temporarily remove the swipe un-lock from my IOS device if it went to sleep with DIJIT running. I hate having to unlock my device every time just to hit mute or change a channel. I should just have to touch the screen to bring it back to life and then push the GUI button.
Please add Playstation 3 support, the IOS device already has blue-tooth, this is major limitation; especially since I can control all my other consoles.
Please add an AC adapter option, this 'AA' requirement is not good considering how much time is spent watching TV and movies. Having blue-tooth running all the time can't be good. I would be surprised if I got the claimed 2 months battery life, which doesn't seem that long anyway. Let's not add to the landfill problem. I should be able to install this device in a rack and never think about it.Read more ›
Decent software that was intuitive
Good support for many types of devices
The Bluetooth is limiting since you can only pair with one device at a time.
After the device goes to sleep the wake up process was not smooth. I had to play with it to get it to reconnect.
IR output produced inconsistant results. Position is critical and in my case I had few options for location
This would be a terrific product if it was WiFi instead of Bluetooth and I would gladly pay more for that feature.
The idea is neat - use your iPhone to control your home entertainment center. Trouble is - it is very limited in what it can do. It has all the functionality of the basic universal remote control that you can buy for $15 at any retail store. So you are paying $70 to may your iPhone work like a $15 universal remote control. Not much value there, eh?
First - programming it is a pain. Rather than simply enter the product make and model it goes through a wizard that tries out a handful of per-programmed profiles - which produced limited and disappointing results. It choked on the heart of my system; my Denon receiver. Forget about Xbox, PS3, Apple TV or other media. You are stuck with the 'old school' devices only here. (TV, cable box, dvd)
I tried to teach it the commands for my devices - but it couldn't get past that my Denon receiver has both an 'on' and an 'off' button... and 'teaching' it the commands off the old remote was certainly frustrating.
I did like the interface with the program guide and Netflix. That is a promising feature. The only reason it gets an extra star.
The device runs on batteries and must constantly be 'recoupled' with your phone. Lame. I had planned on mounting it on the ceiling behind the viewing area so as to get the widest signal distribution - I can forget that now.
Oh, and if you aren't standing directly behind it then it won't read your bluetooth signal.
Overall this product grossly under-performs it's potential.Read more ›
So, onto my setup. I have a Samsung 46 inch LED TV, Sony PS3, Wii, Onkyo TSXR receiver, AppleTV, Sony Blu Ray player, WDTV Live player, and an HDMI switch box, all hooked in through the home theater receiver, so I only have 1 HDMI cable going to my flat screen TV because it's wall mounted. Everything is either plugged into individual inputs on my receiver or into the HDMI switch box.
Out of the box, the product only works with basic functions. I.e. when you add the Samsung TV, you're only going to be able to turn the TV on, turn the volume up and down, change channels, etc. However, this product has one key function, which is LEARN, that allows you to memorize all the other functions of your remotes. For example, on the Samsung TV, one key button left off is the SMART HUB button which launches the Samsung media center which has all your apps such as NetFlix. No biggie, I added this button in about 2 minutes.
My biggest gripe with the setup of remotes is rather then pick from models, i.e. Samsung 6900 TV, you pick "Samsung Remote 1" or "Samsung Remote 2", until you find the remote that turns your TV on and off.Read more ›
