VooMote ONE universal iPhone remote
The iPhone or iPod Touch is always the best candidate to be used as an universal remote to control your TV, home theater and other appliances in your home. Here comes the VooMote ONE, which is just another accessory that turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into a universal remote.
The VooMote ONE is a product of a German company, Zero1.tv. It’s a sled type dock that accommodates any generations of iPhone or iPod Touch and adds IR functionality to let you remotely control any IR compatible devices or appliances. The hardware needs to be used with a free application to turn your iPhone or iPod Touch into a universal remote to control 98% of existing devices such as TVs, DVDs, Stereos etc.
The VooMote ONE has the ability to learn IR codes, to allow it to control the remaining 2% of devices. Having the VooMote ONE attached to your iPhone still allows you to use the iPhone in an upright position, so you’ll be able to receive and make calls. But the downside is it adds too much bulkiness to the bottom part of the iPhone.
