Description & Features+

Your entertainment system expects a remote control to speak to it via infrared signals. Your iOS device speaks Bluetooth. Beacon acts as a bridge between them.

Imagine being able to control your TV or stereo using your always-handy iPhone. Or your iPod touch. Or your iPad.

Beacon pairs with your iOS device via Bluetooth and works with Dijit's Universal Remote App to put complete control of your home entertainment center in the palm of your hand. There are no bulky cases or dongles, no wires or cables. Control your home entertainment system using the Universal Remote App on your Multi-Touch display.

Setup is quick and easy. The Dijit app uses a library of constantly updated device codes to simplify setup for your TV, set-top box, sound system, media players and more. There's even an integrated learning feature for components not yet included in Dijit's library.

Bluetooth pairing is simple and puts you just a few taps away from using Dijit's intuitive Program Guide and your touchscreen-based device to change channels, volumes, input, set your DVR, and more.

Ratings & Reviews+

Beacon Remote Control is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Nice looking product and good quality manufacturing. But it doesnt meet expectations when it comes to do the job, ie use the iPad/iPhone/iPodtouch as remote control to control the cable and TV. First of, my Cable Box remote was not in their database, so I chose a generic one and started the teaching process!. Easy, their step-by-step explanations are very clear (good job here). But the darn thingy it will get all the instructions and it will go to the next step, but when the process was finished and I tried it on my Scientific Atlanta (this is the Comcast box here in south FL), well the buttons were all wrong. I repeated the process several times (maybe 5 or 6) but without success. I had exactly the same problem with the TV remote. I could have called support, but what the heck, ... no time for that. I'll try the L5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beacon is an AMAZING device. I can't believe how great this device works. I honestly think I would be lost without it. I can connect so many devices into it using my ipod touch. I wish I would of bought the one for android products since I own more of those, but for the price of this versus a universal remote I think this would be a great choice!
