SmartEgg: The Elegant, Simple Universal Remote

$110,540

We love home electronics that make our life comfortable, but we dislike having a remote come with every appliance. Learning how to use each remote device separately is a hassle, and every remote drains battery power even when not in use. It isn't convenient or environmentally friendly to have so many remote controls at home, so let's replace them with one.

We believe that in the future home remote control devices will be integrated in one piece, smart and affordable!

We designed a truly universal remote controller in the past 18 months, that is able to:

  • Cover thousands of remote with a secure cloud database
  • Have a friendly graphic interface supporting one-hand operation, the same way you use a TV remote
  • Allow users to remove unwanted keys, regroup, reorder, and combine any keys from any remote and control multiple devices by a single click
  • Have an internal timer to switch electronics on/off timely even when you are not in the house
  • Have self-learning capability to adapt to old or new devices, and interact with devices if certain conditions meet. i.e. mute the TV if my phone rings
  • Support iBeacon technology that tracks and sensors the presence of owner to trigger the scene automatically
  • Consume less energy that makes the battery last over 12 months

SmartEgg is able to control any infrared devices from your mobile phones via Bluetooth.

Truly Universal with Unity Database

SmartEgg is backed with dynamic cloud database that already contains over 5500 remote controllers and 125,000 IR codes, and it keeps growing each day. It is able to emit more than 250 different IR protocols. With its high sensitive IR receiver and self-learning capability, you can use it for any vintage or brand new devices even if you are ‘lucky’ enough not finding one in our database.

Customizable by Creating Your Own Scene

We understand that devices in your home (i.e. home theater) often work together. As SmartEgg stores all control keys of your home appliances, you can now combine any keys from any controllers to create your own scenes. Turn on TV and DVD, Switch to DVD Input, Eject DVD and Play, all these tedious steps can be completed in just one tap.

Move to Control Your Home Electronics

Thanks to the latest Bluetooth 4.0 beacon technology, SmartEgg can track your mobile movement and position in your home. You can now trigger your scene by just walking into the desired range of the SmartEgg, up to 50m far at 0.1m accuracy. So you can take controls without awakening the phone.

Add a Timer to All Your Electronics

SmartEgg knows your time and keeps your home electronics working on schedule. You can now set a daily timer to transform your bedroom TV into morning alarm, or make sure all the devices and lights are off every night after office hour, or set the thermostat on one hour early before you home. You can put a single control key into timer or a running scene into timer.


Portable to Fit All Occasions

We have collected numerous controllers including those for the cameras. You can now remote control your camera via SmartEgg. Just remember always to bring your egg out along with your camera!

Wider Angle Reach Further Distance

We custom made our Infrared emitter and adjusted to ensure it will cover  a wide angle and reach up to 10m distance. the Bluetooth ranges further at 50m in open space or 20m indoor.

Easy to Use, Your Grandma Can Do It

Adding a new remote is as easy as learning ABC. You only need to choose the device type and brand. We have our smart algorithms to match the remote for you even if the model of the electronics is unknown.

Risks and challenges

Due to the fragmentation of Android devices from different hardware brands, we are working hard to make SmartEgg work with all major Android devices in the current market. However, we are working towards there, and expect to be ready for Android by February 2016. Also, our iOS app is already live and works well!
