Nowadays, more and more smart devices penetrate into our homes, and remote controls are used to control them. Many companies and developers are striving to create universal devices that can control several electronic devices at once, from an air conditioner to a refrigerator and a microwave. The most optimal solution is to use the smartphones that almost every person now has as a remote control. VigoRise has developed a unique Universal IR Remote device that turns a smartphone into a universal remote control. The principle of operation of the gadget is quite simple. The device communicates with the smartphone using Wi-Fi and converts the received command into the infrared range. At the same time, the device supports working with the voice assistant Alexa, which allows you to control home appliances using voice commands.Universal IR Remote optimizes controls, which facilitates the user’s work. Also, the device can be controlled remotely, which allows you to give a command to home assistants while outside the home. VigoRise’s device supports about 50 thousand devices. Moreover, this list is constantly expanding. The cost of such a device is only $ 17. The low price and wide range of functions will allow Universal IR Remote to easily conquer the market, since the closest competitor with similar functions of Logitech Harmony costs about $ 100.
