Xiaomi smartphones and tablets have their own customization layer and their own applications which only work on their devices. However, the Chinese giant also develops apps compatible with other Android devices, like Mi Remote controller.
This is an extremely useful tool that functions as a universal remote controller, both for TVs and for other kinds of appliances that you may have connected at home. As you might have guessed, it is not as simple as that. In order to be able to get it working with all kinds of appliances made by different brands, you will need a device that works as a central control unit, like a Mi Box or Mi TV decoder, and connect them all to the same Wi-Fi network.
If you have a Mi Box, for the installed application and for one or several compatible appliances, you'll be able to centralize its use directly from your smartphone and get the most out of the following features:
- It is compatible with all kinds of appliances: TVs, decoders, projectors, DVD players, cameras, etc.
- Brands with compatible appliances: Sony, LG, Samsung, Haier, Sharp, Micromax, etc.
- It includes a program guide in order to help you find out what shows are available to you and allows you to channel hop faster.
Technology can be wondrous at times, and is often applied to the small details of everyday life that we increasingly take for granted. Being able to control appliances in our own homes, when we are not even at home, is a good example of this.
