One Re­mote Con­trol to Rule Them All

SmartHouse - - CONTENTS - Writ­ten by Jon Bragg

Work­ing along­side the No Gap Wall Mount and Clear Cable Con­nec­tion, Sam­sung is mak­ing it sim­pler than ever to re­duce the clut­ter and con­fu­sion of typ­i­cal TV set­ups with the One Re­mote Con­trol.

Hid­den away from view, all your de­vices can be eas­ily con­trolled with the One Re­mote Con­trol. It au­to­mat­i­cally de­tects what de­vice is con­nected to each in­put on the Sam­sung One Con­nect box and re­names them to a use­ful ti­tle, for ex­am­ple ‘Blu-ray player’ in­stead of just HDMI1.

The One Re­mote Con­trol is sleekly de­signed with min­i­mal but­tons, and matches the smarts of the QLED TV range through fea­tures like voice con­trol. This al­lows TV chan­nels, vol­ume and a va­ri­ety of other func­tions to be changed with sim­ple speech com­mands.

Sam­sung haven’t com­pletely done away with but­tons though. Voice In­ter­ac­tion is ini­ti­ated through the mi­cro­phone-shape button, and the vol­ume and chan­nel chang­ing but­tons are both able to be ad­justed up and down.

Nav­i­ga­tion is made through the cir­cu­lar di­rec­tional pad and se­lect button in the cen­tre of the re­mote, as well as the re­turn and home-shaped Smart Hub button. Me­dia con­tent can also be con­trolled us­ing the play/pause button

Plenty of de­vices are com­pat­i­ble with the One Re­mote Con­trol, in­clud­ing Blu-ray play­ers and home the­atre sys­tems from mul­ti­ple man­u­fac­tur­ers, as well as game con­soles and stream­ing de­vices like Fetch TV and Google Chrome­cast.

Whether you want to turn on your home the­atre sys­tem, watch a Blu-ray movie, or stream a video on YouTube, the One Re­mote Con­trol does it all.
