How to Use Your Smartphone as a Universal Remote Control For All Your Appliances

This
is one of the beauties of having a smart device, using your smart device to do
incredible things. This time, you are going to see how to turn your smartphone
into a universal remote that can control your TV set, DVD, AC and any other
appliances.

Peel
Smart Remote
app allows you to use your phone or tablet as an advanced TV
remote control. It can control multiple TV’s, DVD, or any gadget that requires
the use of remote control including your AC’. This app is already installed on
Samsung Galaxy S6 and S7 and must people never even bother to open it because
they don’t know what it does.

PeelSmart Remote lets you use the infrared pinger on the top of your phone to send
signals to your TV. You can turn on your TV, change channels, and change input
– all from your phone without ever touching your remote.
That
becomes even more useful when you’re somewhere like a gym and need to change
the channel on a common TV. At the very least you can use it to troll your
friends by changing their TV screens without the remote.
Requirements
Your
smartphone phone must have IR blaster (Infrared blaster)

  1. I doubt if it will ever work on Tecno CAmon c9 because it doesn't have infrared. It works well on Samsung, HTC and some other smartphones… including Xiaomi

  2. I ve been using this for a long time on my Gionee M5 marathon and it's so cool, since my dstv remote not working my phone has been my remote control, it controls everything
