The new Blumoo controller claims it will be able to control virtually any of your A/V devices. It comes with a seperate IR connector that enables control of a given device via your mobile phone through the Blumoo app. It also features extra touches like allowing you to enter your zip code and get area-specific TV guides.
Flyover Innovations™, LLC, an innovator in consumer electronics made simple, today announced its new Blumoo™ audio controller. Simple to install and easy to use, Blumoo provides the convenience of combined wireless music control and streaming from mobile devices to existing home stereo equipment.
Showcasing a sleek minimal design and premium features, Blumoo integrates a powerful infrared transmitter that connects to any home stereo receiver, powered speakers or whole-home audio systems via a standard 3.5mm jack or RCA connection. Blumoo establishes a wireless Bluetooth connection from the transmitter to the user's mobile device that has the Blumoo app (for iOS or Android) installed.
With the Blumoo app installed, the mobile device gains full control of the stereo system, even from outdoors or other rooms throughout the house. The Blumoo app provides a simple interface to access media directories and online streaming music. The smartphone or tablet becomes the only required remote control for the system, enabling easy-to-use controls and streaming.
"Our customers have already made investments in their existing stereo equipment, and Blumoo makes it effortless to upgrade with combined remote control and streaming functionality," said Jason Carman, CEO of Flyover Innovations. "We set out to design simple wireless music control that's easy for anyone to set up and use on their favorite mobile device from anywhere in their home. With Blumoo, there's no more tethering your mobile device to a docking station or having to keep track of various remotes."
Flyover Innovations plans to initiate a Kickstarter campaign for Blumoo in Spring 2013. The company has its manufacturers and supply chain in place, and is working toward general availability for Blumoo in Fall 2013.
