Universal Remote, Home Theater Remote Controls & Home Automation ReviewsInformation

A man's castle may be his home but he can't rule supreme without a well programmed home theater remote control. Today's remote controls range from the non-backlit junk that comes in the box along with your components to well done, affordable universal remote controls that cost only a few hundred dollars. Today, many of these remotes can be easily programmed by the end user via the Internet with pre-packaged settings for thousands of the most popular Home Theater electronics. For bigger systems and more elaborate home automation systems comes RS-232, wireless Internet controlled touchpad-based remote system from brands like Crestron. The overall theme of all home theater remotes from $199 to $5,000 is that a remote is only as good as the remote programmer. Below find a comprehensive list of home theater remote controllers, control devices and much more from the best brands including Logitech, Pronto, Crestron and so many more.
