Smart home remote controls: The compact gadgets are so practical
A smart home remote control provides unprecedented convenience in your smart home. With the right module, you can control the devices in your smart home at the touch of a button, saving you many steps in your daily routine. Some models can even be used in conjunction with a smartphone app and voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. Another practical feature is that smart home remote controls are battery-powered and thus work completely independently of the power grid. There is no need for complex wiring prior to commissioning.
Which Smart Home remote controls are available at Berrybase?
At Berrybase, you're sure to find exactly the smart home remote you need for your automated network. High-quality products like the Xiaomi Mi Wireless Switch Button, the McPower Comfort wireless remote, the Homematic IP remote, and the Shelly Button1 are perfect if you want to remotely control any smart home devices from a specific manufacturer via WLAN. With the Aqara Wireless Mini Switch, a remote control for a ZigBee network is also available. In addition, there is one or the other universal solution. Other products like the Nuki Fob or the Homematic IP Starter Set Access, on the other hand, are explicitly designed for controlling your house or apartment door. If you have equipped your door with a smart door lock, you can easily use the remote control to open, close and lock it. This alternative is ideal for children, seniors or household members who do not own a smartphone.
What should you consider when buying?
Before you order a smart home remote control online, you should definitely find out whether the product you have chosen is compatible with the other modules of your smart home system at all. Only a few remote controls are universal and can therefore be used across manufacturers. In addition, you should check in advance whether the respective remote control was only designed for certain Smart Home devices or whether the product even has multiple channels. In the latter case, two or more devices can be controlled with one remote control. The configuration is usually done via the manufacturer's own app. The maximum range that the respective product can reach is also significant - especially if you live in a particularly spacious apartment or in a building with thick walls. The corresponding information can be found in the product description.
