Review: One For All Smart Zapper

Do You Always Lose The Remote?

Without fail, every single day, I lose the remote control! It drives me mad and I can never quite understand where it goes! There is a solution though and it is possibly the best idea I have ever seen!

One for All smart zapper

The One For All Smart Zapper allows you to use your phone as the remote control, so no more looking for the remote as let’s be honest, we all have our mobiles stuck in our hands at all times!

All you have to do is download the app and link it up to the zapper. The device needs to be within view of the tv as it works just like a remote with infrared. However, your phone will talk to the bridge via bluetooth so doesn’t have to be exactly in line. You can also use the zapper itself to change channels as it has buttons on the top- so should you lose your phone you can still use the device!

The app is so easy to use, when you want to change the channel you choose the 3 dotted lines button and it takes you to this screen- the keypad to type in a specific channel.

You can of course change the channel and adjust the volume, just like a normal remote.

All For One RemoteMy favourite feature though, is the fact you can look at the tv guide! How handy is that? You can browse the current listings and click on one to switch the channel.

All For One Remote TV guideThe listings aren’t specific to your tv so you will have channels that may not be available for your package but as long as you know which channels you have that isn’t an issue.

The app is available on the App Store and Google Play and the device itself is £34.99 so would make a great gift for any gadget lover! The great thing is it isn’t specific to televisions either, you can add sound systems, dvd players and multiple devices around your home- perfect!

Do you lose your remote all of the time too?

    What a brilliant idea! We’re very strict that we have to put remotes back where they came from.

    Hi! this app is perfect for me and my hubby since our twins tend to hide and we can’t find it. Thanks for the information 🙂
