To help homeowners simplify the number of remotes that come with a home entertainment system, there's Pronto, a smart phone remote.

Rather than offering another universal remote to clutter up your home, with the use of Seamless Bluetooth Smart technology, Pronto transforms an iPhone or iPad into a TV remote control. As well as being able to control the TV, DVD and other entertainment equipment through the app, Pronto is a guide to all your favorite shows, reminding you when to tune in and suggesting what to watch next.

In terms of setup, Bluetooth and 360-degree infrared detection makes it easy to connect electronic devices. Since you most likely have your phone on you at all times, there's a lot less of a chance of ever losing the TV remote.
