It is true that there are already many mobiles that include an infrared port with which we can enjoy this functionality. But what about the rest?
Well, luckily, there is on the market a universal adapter That will allow us use mobile as remote control for tv or any other device. In addition, we do not have to worry if the brand of our television is not included in the database, since it has the learning function so we will be able to configure any remote control.
It is the Kiwik adapter, and as you can see in the image, it is connected to the headphone jack, so it is not only compatible with Androidit can also be used with iPhones and iPads.
This adapter has an internal lithium battery that can be charged with any micro USB cable and will easily last us half a year with each charge.
For the adapter to work, you need to install the app KSmart.
From there we can configure different areas, for example the living room, the kitchen, the bedroom… and in each of these areas we can configure different remote controls. This is very useful if we have several devices in the room since we can create a personalized remote control by putting them all together.
The application itself brings a fairly complete database that includes the main manufacturers along with the main models. But if you can’t find your specific model, you don’t have to worry, since, as I mentioned before, this device has a learning function, so we can create our own design and add the buttons one by one following the process you can see in the video.
It is true that something slow can be done, but once finished it will be recorded and we will not have to repeat it, being able to use the mobile as remote control.
As you can see, it is a very interesting accessory, especially for its price, since it does not reach 10 dollars including shipping to any part of the world.
