Base on different remote IR codesets this remote control will render the required button dynamically for every different brand and model.
You would need to do some setup to get the universal remote controller works with your device. Firstly, you need to choose the device type and the brand of your remote control then a list of model will be shown on the right. Choose the model and test with your machines.

This is a free application but it comes with advertisements and some of the features are limited to PRO version only such as the air con features. If you don't like to see the advertisement you can upgrade it to PRO version with one time purchase to remove the ads.
NOTE: Many people has given me 1 star just because they can't find their device in the list. I will try my best to add those missing remote but please understand that I do not own all remote control in the world.
I've received many complaints that previous codes that were working are missing since version 2.0x. The main reason I remove those codes is to reduce file size. Due to many demand, I've decided to put those code back in version 2.11. Please note that I've merged some of the duplicated codes, therefore, some model name might note be same with your device but it may works.

Some other green screen counterparts don't fill the entire screen, leaving the notification bar or (on tablets with no buttons) the navigation bars visible. Full screen allows you to film any android device in such away that its make, model and operating system are anonymous.
Additionally, track the motion of any screen with up to 5 configurable motion tracking points, change the display color to anything, adjust screen brightness to suit the lighting conditions and lock the orientation all within the app.
Another great feature takes the post production work out of it. If you are unclear, or not sure how to replace the green screen of your mobile device in post production, there is no need to. Simply load the image/logo/video that you want to display onto the devices hard drive and display it for filming within the app. That way no advanced editing is required, and you can simply edit in a simple editor like iMovie or Windows Movie Maker. NOTE: Be sure to match the video resolution with your devices for best results. You can find your devices resolution by going to: "Mobile Green Screen > Start Here> (Sliding Menu) > App Details". Great for app/game designers with all their promotional graphics, ready to be shown in action.

This enables turning all the appliances in one “system” on and off with one click. For example you can have one SureMote “System” for your living room which replaces your existing Smart TV remote, cable box remote and AV receiver remote. One click will turn all of these appliances on or off.
Our custom systems cannot include both WiFi and IR appliances.
