If you have too many remote controls—and if you have more than one, you have too many—then the Sevenhugs smart remote control might just be the thing for you. It’s the next generation of remote controllers with a touch-screen that switches based on the direction the remote is pointed. Point it at a Nest thermostat, you get temperature controls. Point it at Sonos speakers, you get volume control. The secret is in three monitors places throughout your house that with triangulate the location of the remote and all your wireless devices allowing the remote to know what it’s pointing at, when. This requires some training, but the convenience of a truly universal remote is worth it.
