Every household with a TV has a minimum of 2 remote controls, one for the TV and one for the set top box; add one each for the sound system, the Blu-Ray Player, the AC and the list is just endless. At a time when we keep on fiddling and fighting over remote controls, there is a solution to manage it all without much fuss about it — enter into the scene Peel Universal Smart Remote App.
Now picture this, if you were able to control all your devices just with a tap on your phone, wouldn’t it be just wonderful?
What exactly is Peel Smart Remote?

Does your phone not have an infrared blaster? No need to worry. For phones without the IR hardware, Peel uses WiFi to discover and control devices. You can connect to the smart devices in the same WiFi network such as TVs, music systems and streaming players, ACs and Cameras, and control them right from your phone.
The app even lets you customize the interface according to your needs and requirements. If you think you are used to the regular remote control, you are in luck as Peel offers the interface which is the exact replica of your device’s remote — one of the many thousands of devices that it is compatible with.
