A universal remote is a remote control that can be programmed to operate various brands of one or more types of consumer electronics devices. Low-end universal remotes are restricted by their manufacturer in the number of devices that they can control. Mid- and high-end universal remotes offer the possibility for a user to program in new control codes to the remote. Several remotes sold with electronic devices include universal remote capabilities, which allow them to control other devices beyond the one that they came with. For example, a DVD remote may be programmed to operate various brands of televisions. The first universal remote was introduced on May 30, 1985 by Philips under the Magnavox brand name.

Wal-Mart Germany was the first company to introduce Durabrand with a lineup in consumer electronics.
