More things connected to the Internet equals more things you can control remotely. Unfortunately, that also means more apps dedicated to all your stuff. The Sevenhugs Smart Remote looks to remove your phone from the equation altogether by giving you context-sensitive controls over everything in your house. Using a system of plug-in beacons, the remote automatically knows where it is and what you're pointing it at, displaying the right controls for the job on the fly. That means you need only one remote to control your TV, lighting, thermostat, music, and more, while your phone stays happily in your pocket.
