Gear4 UnityRemote


Simple to set up. Highly Configurable. Doesn't need line-of-sight between iPhone or iPod Touch and home theater devices

Somewhat sluggish button presses

Gear4 UnityRemote review


The Gear4 UnityRemote is a smart solution to a very common problem -- too many remotes. This little widget, with the help of an iPhone or iPod touch, will simplify your home-entertainment system.

Works brilliantly ; Easy to set up ; One of the best universal options we've seen

Price is a touch high ; Requires an iPod touch or iPhone ; No Android support

On the face of it, £100 seems like a pretty high price to pay for the Gear4 UnityRemote, especially when you have to supply the remote itself in an iPod touch or iPhone.

Simply to use and set up, this slick little accessory is perfect for those after form and function

Easy to set up ; intuitive in use ; not too pricey ; supports command chains and gestures

Won’t charge your iPod or iPhone ; there are cheaper rivals
