Sideclick is a slim universal remote attachment for streaming devices. A perfect accessory for cordcutters and streamers needing a simple universal remote to control your TV's basic functions and your streaming device all-in-on. Sideclick can be programmed over multiple devices (TV, sound bar, receiver, blu-ray) using IR learning technology. Great for kids, allowing them to access their streaming apps quicker and easier. Sideclick's clip-on design attaches in a snap and allows you to utilize your streaming remote's voice search feature which is lost in other universal remote options.
Sideclick snaps onto your existing streaming remote, allowing you to control the basic functions of your TV and your streaming device all-in-one. As cordcutters, we developed Sideclick because we needed a simple solution to juggling multiple remotes when streaming.
Sideclick attaches in a snap and makes accessing streaming apps quicker and easier, especially for kids. Sideclick uses IR learning technology to program 8 buttons of your choice over multiple devices in just minutes. No fumbling with source codes or having to connect the remote to your computer. Just point and program.

If you decide to upgrade or change your streaming device, you can still use your Sideclick. You just need a new adapter clip for the new streaming remote. No reprogramming necessary.

Describe your product in 3 words.
Simple Streaming Solution
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Having grown frustrated at the price of our monthly cable bill our family became cordcutters. We started researching streaming devices and decided on a Roku device. We loved the simplicity of the remote but hated how we were always searching for a different remote to power ON/OFF the TV and a third remote to control the volume on our Sound Bar. Brett, a mechanical engineer and product designer, sketched the idea for Sideclick and used a 3D printer to create the first prototype. Given the positive feedback we received from family and friends and the overall trend in streaming device sales, we decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign to gauge interest. We loved the collaborative atmosphere that crowdfunding provided and with the help of over 2,600 Backers, Sideclick became a reality.
