What it is: A universal remote for all smart products
Why it's important: It makes it incredibly simple to manage all of your connected devices.
Theoretically, smart home products exist to make our lives better or more convenient. However, getting them all to do what you want without fumbling around on your phone can be a royal pain in the ass, since many are only controllable via their own app. That's the beauty of this Sevenhugs universal remote, which instantly takes over control of any smart device it's pointed at. Sporting a dynamic touchscreen rather than tactile buttons, it automatically shifts to the control style relevant to whatever you're pointing at, whether it's a NEST thermostat, Philips Hue lightbulb, Sonos speaker, NEST camera, August smart lock, smart TV, or any number of other connected devices you might have at home.
