Blumoo Universal Remote HomeBase
Combine All Remote Controls Into a Single Device
Replace your entire collection of home theater and audio system remotes with the Blumoo Universal Remote HomeBase. This simple device turns your smartphone or tablet into the ultimate universal remote by combining controls for all your A/V components (such as your TV, cable box, DVR player, XBox, etc.) into a single mobile app. Blumoo also allows you to stream music from your mobile device to a stereo system via Bluetooth. The app even lets you create custom buttons (iOS only), so you can press just one button for a string of commands that used to require multiple button presses!
- Translates Bluetooth to IR to control A/V equipment
- Works with over 250,000 IR controlled devices
- One Blumoo works with an entire room
- Share remotes with anyone in your home
- Adds Bluetooth music streaming to any stereo
- Free mobile app for Apple Watch, iOS, and Android
How It Works
The 3-inch tall Blumoo HomeBase unit functions in two key ways. For one, it's a Bluetooth receiver. When paired with a Bluetooth enabled mobile device, the HomeBase can receive commands from the app and optionally stream audio. Audio is routed to your audio component (amplifier, stereo system, etc.) with the included audio cable.
Secondly, the Blumoo HomeBase serves as an IR blaster to control your audio/video components. When you download the app to your mobile device, a database of IR codes will download with it. This allows you to select and store the correct IR code for each IR controlled component you want to include in the app. Once you add a device to your app, you can create buttons for the specific controls you want, including custom buttons (iOS only) that combine multiple commands.
Upon receiving a Bluetooth command from the app, the Blumoo HomeBase converts your command into the correct IR signal(s) for the corresponding A/V component(s). The IR signal is then blasted throughout the room, bouncing off any surface and back to your A/V component's IR receiver. This lets you turn your mobile device into a universal remote for all the IR controlled components in the room, without direct line of sight with each IR receiver.

- Requires an Apple or Android device with Bluetooth.
- Custom buttons for multiple commands are created through "macros", which are currently only available for iOS devices. Macros for Android are coming soon.
- IR components to be controlled must be in the same room as the Blumoo HomeBase to receive IR commands. To control components in additional rooms, set up an additional Blumoo HomeBase or the Blumoo Dual IR Extender (both sold separately).
- Blumoo HomeBase is not a Bluetooth transmitter. It only receives Bluetooth signals and cannot send them. Streaming music is received via Bluetooth, then sent to the stereo over the included audio cable.
