Since everything is done on a cell phone nowadays, Griffin is making life even easier with the Beacon Universal Remote that allows the user to control devices from the palm of the hand.

The Beacon Universal Remote is basically a bridge between a smartphone and every other multimedia device that’s in the home. It depends on both the hardware itself and an app to fully operate. The first step is to sync the mobile with the hardware wirelessly with Bluetooth. Once that’s complete, IR signals will be sent from the phone towards the home theater system to activate the controls. So whether it’s the TV or a media player, the Beacon will control everything via smartphone.

The Beacon Universal Remote is compatible for Android and iOS systems.
