Controls up to 20 electronic devices
PowerA has introduced the latest product in its line of iPhone accessories, a universal remote case. The case is paired with the company’s corresponding iPhone application, enabling users to control multiple electronic devices via infrared (IR). The software is capable of storing profiles for up to 20 different remotes, with a variety of potential functions such as playback or volume. Users can also combine buttons from multiple devices under one interface.
The case consists of three different parts, with the top section covering the majority of the iPhone’s back and side surfaces. The bottom piece completes the protective guard, while the third component integrates the infrared transmitter. In order to control a device, users simply open a new profile within the app and sync the transmitter.
The remote case is expected to be available soon from Apple’s website for $60, while the iPhone app can be downloaded from the App Store for free.
