You're Doing It All Wrong
The one-time tech purchase that will make your life easierWatching TV shouldn't be such a hassle. Sharon Profis offers a solution to remote control clutter on "You're Doing It All Wrong."
[MUSIC] If you're always looking for remotes, just so you can watch a movie or TV show, you're doing it all wrong. With every new home theater purchase comes an accompanying remote. One for your audio system, your TV, your streaming box, and on, and on. You probably know where this is going. What you need is a universal remote. This way you can put all of those remotes away in a drawer once and for all and deal with just one remote. There are a lot to choose from. You have the simple varieties that look like a regular remote that can be programmed to control multiple devices. Usually through punching in a code for each device. And then you have the more advanced variety. Our favorite is Logitech's Harmony home control. This ones unique because it also let's you turn your phone into a remote control. Plus, it uses RS that gives you more flexibility than infrared, and you can even use it to control some smart home devices. Including the Phillips Hue light bulb. Not only can a universal remote help you get rid of clutter, it can also give you some bonus features that will make your life even easier. And, now you're doing it right.
