My iPhone as a Remote: Controlling the Universe One Device at a Time

image

I’ve been using my iPhone as a remote control for years now. I can set up my DVR from work if I’m going to miss my favorite TV shows, I can turn on the lights in my house (my wife loves when I decide to mess with her), I can start, lock and unlock my car and I can change the song coming through my jukebox from anywhere in the house. But, there are two new things that you can control remotely with an iPhone that I think are pretty interesting.

There are also some things that I wishI could control with my iPhone that they haven’t thought of yet.



Review: ThinkFlood's RedEye Mini

Well, I have had some time to try out this new RedEye Mini. What’s different about this than their original?  A lot. The original was more of a base station unit that was tied to one room. This new Mini is all about Portability and multi iDevice usage. You can keep it at home, or you can bring it on the go. You can use it in an iPad, an iPhone, or an iPod Touch. There are no restrictions, and as you can see from the pictures, it comes with a handy keychain case. Plus, this unit is more affordable and I think this added with the fact it is portable, makes it a better value.



It's Here: ThinkFlood's RedEye Mini!

Today's the day that the RedEye Mini is available for purchase. This is their new portable remote control plug in. Below is the press release that I thought I would share with you.



Review: ThinkFlood RedEye

I recently received the opportunity to review the RedEye remote control system. I want to say Thank You to ThinkFlood for sending me a review unit to borrow for this review. Many of you may be wondering what exactly is a RedEye? The RedEye is a system where you can turn your iPod Touch or iPhone into an infrared remote control. You can use this for media or other devices that use infrared signals. Please note for the interest of the review, I am conducting this test drive based on an average consumer.
