Sideclick: Streamline Your Streaming Experience

Why Sideclick?  

None of the popular streaming remotes have the ability to power on and off your TV or control volume. A 2nd or sometimes 3rd remote is always needed.  

Sideclick is a universal remote attachment that snaps onto your streaming remote, allowing you to control the basic functions of your TV and your streaming device all-in-one.

Sideclick is available in Black or Silver and compatible with the following streaming devices. Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Google Nexus Player, and Apple TV.

REWARDS

Features

The following animation demonstrates how the same Sideclick can be snapped onto multiple streaming remotes using different adapter clips.  This is beneficial because if you decide to upgrade or change your streaming device, you can still use your Sideclick, you just need a new adapter clip for your new streaming remote.  

From Amazon Fire TV Stick to Google Nexus Player:

Available Adapter Clips

Roku - All 2014 and 2015 Models Supported

 Apple TV

 Amazon Fire TV Stick

 Amazon Fire TV

 Google Nexus Player

How Sideclick works

Sideclick uses infrared learning technology to program each button. Programming is as easy as pointing your device's remote at Sideclick and pressing a few buttons. The entire process takes less than a minute.

Any device using IR technology can be programmed as a button on Sideclick. So say you want to use the POWER button to power on and off your TV but you want to program Sideclick's volume controls to work your sound bar or reciever, you can easily do so. 

If you don't need the channel up/down option, you could program the up arrow to be your MENU option and the down arrow to MUTE. We give you 8 buttons, program them however you want. 

Each Sideclick model takes 2 AAA batteries.

A streaming accessory for everyone  

Having Sideclick attached to your streaming remote makes navigating the TV easy for anyone. Especially kids, grandparents, and guests.

About the Creator

Sideclick was invented and designed by mechanical engineer, Brett Epstein. Brett has always had a passion for product design and has over 10 years of engineering design experience ranging from consumer products to jet engines. Brett's family recently cut the cord, eliminated their cable provider, and purchased a Roku. While Brett loved the device and the sleekness of the remote, he hated the fact that in order to sit down and watch TV, he needed 2 remotes in his hand: one to control the Roku and one to control the volume. After some research, he realized that this basic functionality was lacking in all streaming TV devices and he knew that if he could design something for each of the top selling streaming devices, it would become a must-have accessory for streamers.

The first Sideclick Prototype

Work in Progress

Also on the Sideclick team is Brett's wife, Jenn, handling everything from customer service, social media, and marketing. Daughters, Brenna and Lily, serve as quality control testers. 

Risks and challenges

We have working prototypes that are the right shape, feel, and fit, however additional detailed design work needs to be done to make each design more suitable for high volume plastic injection-molding. We are aligning ourselves with the best resources and Brett's 10+ years in mechanical engineering have him extremely well equipped for manufacturing sourcing and trouble-shooting. The good news is that this product does not involve any ground breaking technology that you will be waiting around for us to perfect.

We take our schedule commitments very seriously and we have attempted to plan for any contingency, but sometimes problems are unforseen and out of our control causing delays. We promise you that we will provide excellent communication in the form of updates.
