Hi, Looking for some feedback on a new Pro-sumer remote control design.
SmartRemote is a client to Allonis's myServer 6 automation controller. Can be used concurrently with any browser based device to connect to same controller. ie: iPhone, Android phone, tablets, PCs, Samsung refrigerators, etc.
We will launch it initially in a Kickstarter. Packages of SmartRemote and myServer 6 hardware / software / device licenses.
Some initial feedback has been received on AVSForum that we have implemented and it was suggested that we also post on RemoteCentral for more feedback.
The Kickstarter is expected to launch in a month or so and myServer 6 will then be available right after the close of the campaign. SmartRemote production units will be ordered with all feedback considered at the close of the campaign with delivery a couple months later.
myServer 6 can integrate with many other automation platforms via NodeRed, custom APIs, MQTT etc. which then exposes SmartRemote for usage with other systems.
All buttons and user interfaces are completely customizable for function and touchscreen look and function using the myDesigner 6 drag and drop application.
Local Voice services (no Internet or Big Brother required) will be available shortly after launch with optional cloud based integrations later.
Pricing will be "more than Harmony, less than custom automation system remotes". Tell us your thoughts.
I haven't told you too much as looking for your feedback on "the perfect remote control".
Here is a pic of an existing real SmartRemote managing a HEOS player. Sonos is similar (just one of many examples). The hard buttons are photoshop as we are looking for your feedback before building them in hardware.
