Sevenhugs Unveils Smart Remote at CES 2016

The World's First Contextual Remote Control on Display at CES Unveiled and Sands, Booth 80637

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jan 4, 2016) - Sevenhugs, a French startup that designs and markets smart home technology products and services, is excited to introduce the Smart Remote, the world's first contextual remote control, at CES 2016.

Utilizing indoor localization technology and featuring a dynamic adaptation of display and control, the universal, family-friendly device allows users to interact with any smart device in the home by simply pointing and clicking -- avoiding the multi-step process involved with nearly all smart home apps and management options on the market. With an open SDK, the list of items and services compatible with the Smart Remote is endless, providing users with a personalized experience.

Featuring patent pending technology, the Smart Remote is currently compatible with Philips Hue lights, Sonos speakers and Nest Learning Thermostat. The Smart Remote comes with 3 connected sockets to allow the remote to locate itself within the home space and a charging base, which can be mounted on the wall or placed on a table. Easy to use and intuitive, the Smart Remote provides a unique and natural experience, accessible to all family members.

"By 2019, the smart home market is expected to reach $28 billion, with more than 69 million homes connected worldwide," said Simon Tchedikian, CEO & Cofounder, Sevenhugs. "Yet, the smart home technology fragmentation remains an obstacle with every connected object needing to be controlled by a dedicated smartphone application or a remote control. With the Smart Remote, you only need one solution to control everything in your home with just one touch."

The Smart Remote is currently in development. It will be available for pre-order in Q1 2016 and shipping in September 2016. For more information about the Smart Remote, visit See the Smart Remote in action here.

The Smart Remote will be displayed at CES Unveiled on January 4, 2016 and at CES 2016 from January 6-9, 2016 at Tech West - Sands Expo - Level 1 - Booth 80637.
