zapperZapper Can Give You Total Control Of The Situation..

Are you fed up with juggling remote controls whilst trying to relax on the sofa?

Or, even worse, struggling to find them?

Then you may be interested in the One For All Smart Zapper.

This little gizmo sits on your coffee table and connects up, via Bluetooth, with an App on an Android or Apple smartphone or tablet, to all of your remote controlled devices at once.

It makes the individual controllers redundant.

It is designed to control 16 devices at once, which is a bit over the top, enough for anyone’s needs and beyond, surely.

The App is claimed to be able to download the controls for up to 325,000 different devices from over 6,800 brands and put them at your fingertips via visual dashboard on the touchscreen.

What is more, when using a TV, the App also integrates with seven days of information, including pictures of the programme, movie and cast, from the Electronics Programme Guide (EPG). It also allows you to switch channels directly from the EPG within the App.

The real versatility of the Smart Zapper, though, comes in the multiple actions it can perform at the press of a single touchscreen button.

Just as an example, if you press ‘Watch Movie’ in the App, it would turn on both your TV and your DVD player, switch to the correct HDMI ports, and then start rolling a film from a disc.

Then, when you need to use your phone or tablet for something else, the Smart Zapper has its own set of buttons for basic functions such as changing channels or volume, pausing and playing.
