Best Universal Remote
Smartphones and tablets can control anything and everything these days, which is pretty awesome.
The Internet of Things craze means most items in your home can be connected to the internet, and practically anything that can be connected to the internet can be controlled by iOS or Android.
You have to find the right app, wait for it to open, and then you re using up battery life unnecessarily.
Maybe you should snag the Logitech Harmony Home Companion / Home Control instead.
It can control up to eight devices in your home, and it s on sale on Amazon fro just $129.99 through Saturday, May 28.
