HDAnywhere will unveil a hand-held, system-unifying remote control that can specified into any HDA installation, at ISE 2023.

The uControl Remote will control all the devices connected to an HDA system, creating a unified home AV experience. The brand says it will be more affordable and customisable than comparable solutions.

The new zapper features an intuitively placed button layout and an OLED information screen. When picked up from its charging mat, it’s always ready to go, thanks to wireless charging and instant-on.

The uControl Remote uses both Wi-Fi and IR to power on and control all the audio-visual technology in a room, as well as third-party systems, including Rako, Hue, Lutron, GUDE, BluOS, and Shelly.

This wand features 44 buttons, including a number pad, navigation wheel, volume and channel up or down, and play/pause. All have an dedicated button, including guide and information, plus the essential red, green, yellow and blue buttons. uControl favourites macro buttons mean a single press can trigger a quick action, routine, sequence or scene.

Setup is a guided step-by-step process within the uControl App, powered by the HDA Cloud. Once assigned to a zone, the uControl Remote can locate and control the technology in that space. Additional levels of customisation are possible as required. Integrators might want to assign sequences to buttons, long press actions, secondary functions and so on. The uControl Remote is compatible with all HDA MHUB systems with uControl (that’s from 2016 onwards).

The uControl remote has been in development for four years, says HDA’s founder Chris Pinder. “We have created a game-changing companion remote control that opens up mid-market business opportunities for installers and improves the user experience of every HDA system.”

Final pricing and pre-order info for the uControl Remote will be announced closer to launch.
