Satechi is a well-known brand on Amazon when it comes to quality products at affordable prices. Their latest release continues that trend by providing you an Apple-style Bluetooth remote to control all of your devices. This remote features two modes for different purposes: media and presentation.

Apple Smart Keyboard

With Bluetooth 4.1, the remote can control your devices from up to 33 feet away. It also has a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery and a USB-C port to keep it powered. Yes, we’re finally starting to see companies include USB-C on more than just phones and computers! This remote would be a great addition to any workflow where you’re away from your device yet still need to control it.

Media mode gives you complete playback control over the connected device. This is great if you have an iPad or other device sitting on a charger controlling the media for your home or business, but you want to be able to control playback functions without having an Apple Watch or something similar on you. Services like Spotify do offer this feature, but you still have to have another smart device in order to control the one playing. This gives you a fool-proof remote that can stay anywhere around, yet still help you control your media playback.

You can even control movie playback from your iPad, MacBook, or other smart devices. This means that with the Satechi Bluetooth remote, you can plug your laptop up to a TV and still fully control playback and volume without having to use a keyboard and mouse, as long as the program you’re using supports remote input.

The Satechi Bluetooth remote also features a presentation mode. This mode lets you easily walk around a room and still control your computer’s presentation application with no issues. It works with most applications, even PowerPoint and Keynote. With the Satechi Bluetooth remote you will be able to move forward and backward in your slideshows with ease.

The Satechi Bluetooth remote is available starting today for just $44.99 in silver, space gray, and gold. This remote is the perfect addition to a businessman’s briefcase or a store’s media arsenal. It’s also great if you just want to be able to use your computer for media playback and control it from your couch. See the below video for more information.
