Review of the Peel Universal Remote Control

Traditional remote controls are not very convenient anymore because the number of channels and features is constantly growing. Programming your favorite channels and watch lists is complicated with traditional remote controls, and it can be a real pain to juggle multiple remotes just to get everything turned on. That is where The Peel Universal Remote Control comes into play. It is a combination of an app (only available on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad) and a Wi-Fi to IR converter. The Peel Universal Remote Control promises a very easy setup and a better way to navigate programs.

Attractive and Convenient

The hardware behind the Peel Universal Remote Control consists of two parts: the Peel and the Peel cable. The Peel is an attractive and uniquely designed pear-shaped remote control. The Peel cable has a power adapter on one end and an Ethernet jack on the other. Once you plug in the Peel cable to an AC outlet and Ethernet, the Peel remote will receive commands you send wirelessly from your iPhone or iPod touch, convert them into IR signals, and send them to your TV or home theater.

Let us have a byte of the Peel fruit and look inside. You can open the Peel remote by unscrewing the yellow part from the black part. This gives you access to the C battery as well as a unique product ID, which you will need to use when you set up the device. The fact that the remote uses a single C battery is very convenient; just keep a few C batteries on hand at home and you will not have to worry about running out of juice.
