Excellent IR remote control
My frield bought one for his iPad to replace his aging Pronto remote control. I have an iTouch so I bought one to replace the use of 10 remoter controls. It is very easy to configure and it can learn any remote control buttons if needed - just as well as the default deos not have cover my Krell amplifier RC and my Sony AV model. It is easier to use (sensitive) than my Humax RC as pressing a button on the iTouch gives an instant response whereas my Humax RC does not seem to be as responsive and very often I have to press it a few times on the Humax RC. The "favourites" is a very good feature as I can configure all the buttons required for watching TV or DVD all in one screen so it makes it easier for my wife. The only downside is becasue I am using iTouch and the battery capacity of the iTouch does not last long, I have to charge the iTouch everyday. I can turn the iTouch autolock on but if I do and I want to change the volume or pause the film I have to unlock the iTouch first. I'm not sure it is a bug of the iTouch or the IR RC. If I have to unlock the iTouch first and use the IR RC button, it does not seem to work unless I click the iTouch menu button to show the menu again, then click on the IR RC software again to go back in. Alternatively I can turn autolock off completely to avoid the problem but it does use up the battery quickly. I think it is more suitable for iPad or iPhone which have a larger battery capacity.

Description

Fed up of having a table full of remotes? Put them away, plug in the NewKinetix Rē and control the devices in your home.

The Rē Remote and Remote control app combine to turn your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch into a universal remote control that works in any room of your home. Away from home, the Rē and your iPhone give you the power to mute the loud TV nobody is watching, or change channels in the break room when the office remote is lost. There are no limits to the number of locations that you can use your Rē. There is no need for WiFi, simply plug in your Rē to your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and personalize control of your AV entertainment everywhere.

NewKinetix Universal Remote Control for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

Setups for Every Room

At home, the Rē gives you the ability to duplicate every remote in every room. You can setup the Rē in minutes and have every individual remote instantly available at your finger tips. But more than that, you can build Activity Remotes that orchestrate your AV equipment to work together to personalize each viewing or listening activity.

Share your Settings

You can use the popular BUMP app, which is incorporated into the Rē app to transfer part or all of your personalized Rē setup from one iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to another. You can also email setup information, so if you learn or customize a device, it's easy to share with other users. You can also use email to backup your settings.

Built-in Upgradeable IR Database

The Rē Accessory contains an extensive IR database for most brands and types of AV equipment, including PS3 compatibility. Unlike learning-only remotes, it can even replace a lost or broken remote. With IR Codes on Demand™ NetKinetix can add new devices to the database at any time based on customer requests or if a popular device becomes available that requires a new IR code set. 

Activity Based User Interface

The Rē creates a specialized remote control for each entertainment activity you want to control. Activity Remotes are automatically set up to allow you instant access to the right device buttons for watching TV, a DVD movie, or listening to a CD. If you need a special button from a device remote, it's a touch away, or if you use that function often, you can make a copy of the button in your Activity.

Powerful IR Transmitter

The Rē Accessory's IR transmitter has been optimized for intensity and beam width for maximum range of use. The transmitter is positioned for comfortable use and optimum display visibility on your phone or iPod. The Rē also compensates for the varied IR signal demands by integrating device and button specific IR timing control for delay and transmit time, providing the ability to handle demanding applications with differing IR signal timing.

Unlimited Macro Capability

You can create macros (button playback sequences) on Rē Activity Remotes that simplify using your home theater. Create one button to play a command sequence that turns on the TV, receiver, and cable box power and then selects the right AV inputs and outputs to automate your “Watch TV” activity. Set it up once, and you don’t have to remember where all those cables are plugged. Macros are not limited in number, number of steps, buttons or commands that can be used.

Customizable Remote Views

The Rē application provides user customization of every remote layout. You can choose button images and create the best button layout for your use of each remote. You can easily rename, add, delete and move buttons. You can also assign unique skin colors to devices and activities to easily distinguish between them or add selected background images for aesthetic enhancements.

Unlimited Favourite Lists

You can organize your favorite channels into Favorites Lists like “Sports” or “Movies” for instant access. Tap the network icon and instantly the change channel without entering the digits or using the menu. You can have Favorites for any Activity, so you can create radio stations presets and CD play lists. You can also copy and paste favorites from Room to Room.

Learns new keys and devices

IR code learning is included in the Rē to augment the IR database. You may find an unsupported button or a device brand or type that you may need to learn. It’s easy with the Rē.

Reviews

Chip Chick says, "Compared to other iPhone remote control devices we tested recently, the Rē came in heads and shoulders above the rest in terms of ease of use and functionality.” To read the full review, click here.

SvenOnTech gives the Rē 4 out of 5 stars saying, "You can finally take control of all remote controls in one place with the Rē. Finally be able to view a DVD from your home theater with just one button press while the Rē powers and sets everything up for you.” To read the full review, click here.
