Q. Why can’t I download SURE Universal Remote?
A. Your smartphone or tablet may be missing an IR Blaster, which our app needs to work with traditional IR remotes. We do support select IR gateways, which you can buy at Amazon to have full functionality. Learn more here. If you would like to use the app for your smart WiFi devices please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can send you the apk.
Q. Why do I need an IR Gateway?
A. Your smartphone or tablet must be missing an IR Blaster, or it is not compatible with the app. Your phone needs IR, or an IR Gateway, to work with our traditional IR remotes. In the meantime, you can use the app for your smart WiFi devices. You can learn more about the IR Gateways here.
Q. Why doesn’t my TV turn on?
A. Each TV has multiple models. During the setup you must run each test by testing the on/off button. Once the TV turns on click “Accept”. Full instructions are here.
Q. Why can’t I change the channels on my TV?
A. After you have added your TV to the SURE Universal Remote, you must then add your Set-Top or Cable Box. Once you have done this you will be able to change channels. You can also add multiple devices to the same “System” in order to turn them on and off together. Find instructions here.
Q. Do I need internet to use SURE Universal Remote?
A. When you first add your IR device you need to be connected to the internet to access all of the available remotes from the SURE cloud. After you save the remote you will no longer need internet to access it. You will need internet to use smart WiFi remotes.
