The dream of an affordable, truly universal remote looks like it is finally coming true. Blumoohooks up to more than 225,000 A/V components, letting you control your equipment from your smartphone. Right now,it’s also 34% off.
The sleekly-designed Blumoo works by talking to your phone via Bluetooth on behalf of your speakers, home theatre, TV, satellite, and so on. Setup is very straightfoward, and it has a range of 150 feet, but it is intelligent, too.
When you select each A/V component via Blumoo‘s app, you only get controls that are relevant to that piece of equipment. The best example is the TV guide, which shows you a schedule that is customised to your service, zip code, and preferences. The app also supports streaming from the likes of YouTube and Spotify to your Hi-Fi or sound system, and new options are being added all the time via updates.
