Sevenhugs’ smart universal remote is getting a cheaper sibling, with the Smart Remote U trimming $100 from the price but still keeping the touchscreen interface.
The addition to the range also sees the original model renamed as the Sevenhugs Smart Remote X, two years after it made a splash on Kickstarter.
Back then, the promise was straightforward.
Sevenhugs’ answer was to bypass jumping between menus and instead allow you to control a device simply by pointing the remote at it.
$299.99 to be exact, for which Sevenhugs says the remote could boast support for more than 650,000 different devices, across WiFi, Bluetooth, and infrared.
A single remote can handle up to 80 devices, 20 of which can be IR.
