As more of the devices in our lives gain Wi-Fi and smartphone connectivity, the need for a more unified remote will continue to grow. While voice control is great for some, many search for a more discrete way to interact with their smart devices. This is where the Turn Touch remote shines, which provides four programmable buttons wrapped in an elegant wooden case. From setting the lighting with your favorite scene, to making sure the temperature is just right, Turn Touch hopes to provide a solution for controlling the gadgets in your life.

Turn Touch currently sports a companion app which supports iPhone, Mac and other smartphones. The remote can be currently backed on Kickstarter at the Early Bird price of $69 and has already earned over half of its funding goal with 29 days to go.

Turn Touch is a four button remote control carved out of solid wood. Get instant control of your devices and your home. With only four buttons, your Turn Touch connects you to apps, lights, speakers, and more.

There’s never been a remote quite like this:

  • Extraordinary design: This isn’t yet another plastic remote. Turn Touch is carved from solid wood and worked to a show-stopping, textured finish.
  • Always ready: Turn Touch is always on, always connected, and always ready to take your breath away. Never fiddle with pairing buttons, disconnected devices, or syncing procedures.
  • Built to last: Not only will your Turn Touch stand up to drops and shock— its entire circuit board can be inexpensively replaced with newer, future wireless tech. You also won’t have to buy a new remote every time Apple comes out with a new phone.
  • Well connected: Right now, Turn Touch is ready to connect with over two dozen apps and integrations. And this is just the first version. Over time, there’s no telling what you’ll be able to control.
