As of 2015, some different TV changers, or TV remotes, include universal remotes such as the Logitech Harmony Ultimate universal remote, the Savant Remote and the Logitech Harmony 650 remote. The Logitech Harmony Smart Control remote, the Neeo remote and the Logitech Harmony Home Control remote are also different TV remote controls. Other TV remotes include remotes with slide-out or integrated keyboards for entering text or password, remotes with backlights and TV remote/speaker combinations such as the Sony SRS-LSR100.
Shoppers can also use remotes with touchpad technology or their smartphones as TV remotes. The Logitech Harmony Smart Control offers smartphone control and combines it with RF functionality. The Neeo remote is a universal remote that can control about 30,000 products, such as cable boxes, sound systems, speakers and light bulbs. The Neeo remote also features a touchscreen and communicates via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology.
Both the Savant Remote and the Logitech Harmony Ultimate universal remote also feature touchscreens. However, the Savant Remote offers a voice control option. The Sony SRS-LRS100 allows TV viewers to control their televisions without standing in front of the screen simultaneously while listening to TV shows. A wireless dongle allows this TV remote speaker to communicate to the TV from afar so that users can engage in other activities, such as completing house chores.
