At ShowStoppers last night, I took a quick peek at L5’s iPhone universal remote control. The package consists of an IR transmitter/receiver with Apple dock connector and custom app, turning your iPhone into an AV remote. The app’s graphics are a bit old-school, but not offensive, and there appears to be tons of flexibility in terms of customization – various default remote types, room profiles, swipe to switch. Unlike a Harmony solution, there is no master cloud-based database of AV devices. Each remote button must be manually programmed/mapped, by pointing the iPhone+L5 at the remote you want to mirror. The L5 lands next month at a reasonably priced $50.
