Smart Egg

A smart universal controller for IR devices for iOS & Android

Smart Egg is a smart universal controller able to control any infrared device from your mobile phone.

By syncing to its cloud database, a user has access to 5,500 remotes from companies such leading TV manufacturers such as Sony, Samsung, Toshiba and Philips via the SmartEgg app. In addition, it emits 250 different IR protocols. Besides TVs, it can also sync with your camera and act as remote shutter/timer. SmartEgg has other peripheral capabilities thrown in as well, such as temperature monitoring, smart air conditioner optimisation based on environmental conditions and auto mute when your phone rings. The Smart Egg is available for iOS as well as for Android mobile phones.

I've read more and more 'IOT' devices are not very secure so hackers are increasingly targeting them instead of Windows PCs, mostly they are not hacking them to control them, but to use them as nodes in their botnets. So how secure is Smart Egg and more importantly your server that it connects to?

Dear Ian,
Thank you very much for your message. As we developed the Smart Egg we also faced this question how to make the Smart Egg as secure as possible. Because of this threat we decided to equip the Smart Egg only with Bluetooth 4.0 instead of Wirless Lan. Only if the Smart Egg is connected with your mobile phone it is able to enter the internet to reach our servers. From itself it is not able to get active in the network which lowers the risk of getting missused by 3rd parties.
