Smart Remote FAQ


What is included with Smart Remote?

Smart Remote comes with one Smart Remote, one Charging Base and power adapter, and three (3) Room Sensors (AA batteries included). You will also need to download the free Smart Remote app available for iOS and Android devices.

How do you setup and install Smart Remote?

To setup and install Smart Remote, you will need to connect Smart Remote to your Wi-Fi network, use the Smart Remote app to add your devices, install three Room Sensors on your walls via damage-free removable adhesive, and then use Smart Remote to set the location of each device you want to control.

How do Room Sensors need to be installed?

Here are the Room Sensor installation requirements: 1) Place each Room Sensor in direct line of sight with the Charging Base and the other Room Sensors. 2) Place each Room Sensor at least 6 feet (2m) above the floor. They can be placed at different heights. 3) Place each Room Sensor on a different vertical wall in the same room. 4) Place Room Sensors as far apart from each other as possible, but not more than 50 feet (15m) from one another.

How does Smart Remote know which device I am pointing at?

Smart Remote is the world’s first consumer electronic product that combines an indoor positioning system and motion tracking sensors. Each kit includes three Room Sensors that work together with the Charging Base to create a 3D map of your room. When you add a device, you have the option to tell the system where each device is physically located. You simply hold Smart Remote directly in front of a device and press locate. We then use the position and orientation information from sensors in Smart Remote to determine where it is pointing and what it is pointing at.

How does Smart Remote control devices that are located next to each other?

When you point Smart Remote at a cluster of devices, a carousel will appear at the top of Smart Remote that allows you to swipe to select which device you want to control. You can also create Scenes using the Smart Remote app to control multiple devices with a single button (e.g. turn on your TV, streaming media player, and A/V receiver and select the right input).

I used Affirm to purchase my Smart Remote

A refund on an Affirm order is identical to a credit card refund. It may be processed directly through Sevenhugs or via the Affirm dashboard. For a partial refund, Affirm will first credit the final monthly bill of your loan. If the refund amount is higher than the final monthly bill amount, Affirm will apply the remainder of the refund to the preceding month, and so on. All other payment amounts will not change from the original terms.
