About this project
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.

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!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
What if the device is not within that list? Can you share full list of the devices that are compatible as a lot of my home electronics are kind of old?
Yes, Aico SmartEgg has self-learning capability to adapt an old or new device that's not in the list as long as the device recognizes infrared signals! The full list has already been shared with all of you in our AICO app on iOS and Android apps. Download for free, login, and then click on "+Remote" at the top left corner of the screen. You'll then be able to find devices categorized such as "TV", "Aircon", "DVD" in each category. Go to iOS or Android app store today to download our app once you receive your SmartEgg.
If I have ordered the two pack but I want four, can I just double my pledge amount? What about 6? 8?
Yes, you can just double your pledge amount for 4. and triple your pledge for 7, and the same math for 7, 8, 9... Thank you so much for your support :-).
What is the progress to manufacturing? The delivery of Feb '16 will be delayed with all the R&D and add-on features? Seems to me the Feb '16 estimate delivery is unrealistic.
The products are ready for packaging. I have a done product sitting right in front of me right now. Thus the estimated delivery time is completely realistic. We hope that you will order enough SmartEggs (tons of them) to make our manufacture sweat.
Security is important. It's not a news anymore that households IoT smart fridges and even kettles became the entry points where hackers hack into home devices. By using bluetooth we eliminated most of vulnerabilities.
Colors other than white would come at the cost of effective range and angle of SmartEgg. Thus, at this time we offer only white.
