Universal remotes are of no shortage in the market, but not many of them come close to the user-experience the Ray Super Remote wants to offer. This gadget is basically a high-tech device that could very well pass as a smartphone, but its main purpose is to give you control over all home appliances from one single location.
The Ray Super Remote is designed to be intuitive. Unlike conventions remote controls, this one doesn’t come with a horde of buttons. Instead, you’ll be treated to a touchscreen of 4.8-inches with 1120 x 480p resolution. What’s more, the display has been covered with durable glass which also has a fingerprint as well as scratch-resistant coating.
There are a few physical buttons onboard, just important ones like power, mute and volume controls. The Super Remote uses multiple mediums to take control over your home appliances. It packs infrared, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Zigbee protocols which allow it to get hooked up to set top boxes, gaming consoles, Roku, Apple TV, DVRs, HDTVs and a lot more.
A complete list of supported devices can be found on the company’s website. The Super Remote comes loaded with features which make discovering content a very convenient task. Additionally, Ray has partnered with content providers to enable many other capabilities. Lastly, setting it up is pretty simple as you’ll simply need to connect the remote to a Wi-Fi network, link to your TV provider and then hook the device up to your appliances.
