4 Unique Ways to Never Lose Your Remote Again

Going crazy always searching for the remote? Never lose your remote again with these 4 new and unique ways to keep track of it.

It’s happened again. You’ve lost the TV remote and haven’t a clue where it could be. You’ve searched the couch cushions, the toy box, even the kitchen fridge, but no such luck. This is the third time this week and you’re fed up. And it doesn’t help that you have a toddler and a dog running around taking things and hiding them. You spend the next twenty minutes tearing your house apart until you finally find the remote, and vow never to lose it again. Yet, that promise never sticks. Until now. If you live in a family where the TV remote gets lost all the time, here at Tekoia we’ve found four unique ways so you never lose the remote again. Pay special attention to number four; it’s the handiest and most unique option available right now. So, let’s get to it.

1. Stick Your Remote Next to Your TV

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxEba6o3g1E Velcro® has a handy video showing you a hack so that you don’t misplace your remote ever again. No longer do you have to worry if your child lost the TV remote. If you find a spot that’s out of reach from little hands, it’ll be a cinch to grab the remote when you come home from work. If you’re worried about having the remote clash with your décor, you can always find a spot hidden or tucked away so that no one sees it. A great spot is behind the TV.

2. Use a Locator

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvDRGpe-Ps0 The EasyFinder is a two-way remote locator. It uses a Bluetooth transmitter that allows you to swap out a battery for the EasyFinder battery. Simply use their app to find where your remote is. The app emits a beeping noise when you get closer to your remote. For some families this may come in handy but for others, having to keep track of even more batteries might be a bit too much to handle. In either case, kids will enjoy using this system and parents can rest assured that the TV remote will always be just one beep away. Note: The EasyFinder is a crowdfunded invention that has met its funding goals and should be coming to market soon.

3. Turn Your Remote Into a Pillow

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H84tNtUaqfs What? Yes, you heard that right. Turn your TV remote into a pillow. It does involve some DIY assistance – plus sewing – and a few wires to connect the buttons and extend them so you can use them on the pillow. This project can be done as a family, or on your own. Kids love to explore and take things apart and what dad doesn’t like it either? When the pillow remote is all said and done, it may look a tad silly, but it’s functional and comfortable too!

4. Use the SURE Universal Remote App

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQxzzKvju_8 Of course we just had to also include our SURE Universal app in this list of unique ways to never lose your remote! By far the most advanced, modern and easiest way to never lose your remote again is to use our app. All you need is an Android phone with an IR blaster and you’re good to go. Our app even works to control other IoT devices and appliances like your air conditioner, your iRobot, your Phillips Hue lighting, media streamers like your Roku, and much more. It’s easy to set up and within minutes you’re in business. And by the way, do you know anyone who casually loses his or her smartphone? If so, they’ve got bigger problems!

Never Lose Your Remote Again

Whether you want to try a Velcro® hack or a fancy Bluetooth battery, people will do almost anything to keep track of their TV remote. And while a DIY TV pillow might do the trick, in the long run it’s just not that functional. So opt for our SURE Universal remote app instead. Not only will you never misplace your TV remote again, but you’ll also never have to worry about replacing batteries that seem to die at the worst times possible! A win-win.
