Sevenhugs introduced the Smart Remote, the world’s first contextual remote control, at CES 2016.
Utilizing indoor localization technology and featuring a dynamic adaptation of display and control, the universal, family-friendly device allows users to interact with any smart device in the home by simply pointing and clicking – avoiding the multi-step process involved with nearly all smart home apps and management options on the market.
With an open SDK, the list of items and services compatible with the Smart Remote is endless. For instance, it is currently compatible with Philips Hue lights, Sonos speakers and Nest Learning Thermostat. It comes with 3 connected sockets to allow the remote to locate itself within the home space and a charging base, which can be mounted on the wall or placed on a table.
The Smart Remote is currently in development. It will be available for pre-order in Q1 2016 and shipping in September 2016.
