Universal remote control

In almost every living room today there are numerous electronic devices: televisions, Blu-ray players, DVD players, sound bars, game consoles, AV receivers and more. Each device usually comes with a remote control. For ease of use, a universal remote control provides a reliable remedy.

Remote Control Compatibility

Check the compatibility of the remote control

The purpose of a universal remote control is the elegant, smart and reliable control of all end devices in the home. It makes life easier and technology more convenient.

In order to introduce this convenience into your living room at home, you first have to make sure that the remote is first checked for compatibility with the devices – only then is it possible! A quick check is very easy and does not take long.

Connecting you Universal Remote to your TV

Setting up a universal remote control is child’s play. All you need is the 4-digit TV code that corresponds to the TV. Once you’ve found the code, simply enter it on the remote and the two devices pair.

If you can’t find your code, don’t worry. There is a second possibility. Simply start the automatic manufacturer search where the device searches for the code from a ready-made database on its own. With most remote controls, this can be done with the code 0000. Otherwise, the device’s instruction manual will help.

Our universal remote recommendations

A remote control is a smart All-In-One solution.

Essence 4 by One For All

Not only TVs can be controlled, but also DVD or Blu-ray players.


Universal Remote by Hama

If the Essence 4 is not for you and you still like to stay cheap, we have another recommendation for you. Hama’s 8-in-1 Universal Remote for Smart TVs even supports up to eight devices simultaneously. And the price is still very low!

However, you should check here exactly which devices you want to control. The list of compatible devices is unfortunately somewhat smaller than that of the Essence 4.

The price doesn’t matter and the use should be as easy as never before? Then Logitech has the right universal remote control for you – the Logitech Harmony 950.

This powerful remote control features a touch screen display to complement the control buttons. The manufacturer guarantees that over 270,000 devices are compatible and can replace up to 15 remote controls. A real luxury product for the demanding user.
