    Can more than one Beacon be used in a household. e.g. one for the living room and a second for the bedroom.

  • Dave Delaney

    Yes, you just need to pair it with your device to use it. Hope this helps.

    I want to use the beacon with two different iPhones . In your previous posts you say that it remembers paired devices . So would I be right to assume if my wife was using through her iPhone then turns her bluetooth off and I turned my iPhone on (previously paired) I could now use the device? Thanks for your time .

  • Dave Delaney

    Yes, that’s correct. Thanks Paul.

    Thanks for the comment. A wall mount is certainly something to consider in a possible future iteration. I’m glad you’re putting Beacon to good use.

    My entertainment system incorporates two satellite receivers from the same manufacturer, side by side on the shelf. Each has a matching remote. Can I set up the app to recognize each one and control them individually?

    Hi, I really want to purchase one but living in the UK I want to know if it works with Sky+ HD. Most reviews seem to suggest it won’t. Please let me know if this is the case? Thanks!

    Still nothing for PS3?

  • Dave Delaney

    It is not compatible with international channel guides. However, it will still work as a universal remote control.

    Just wanted to update you that the iPad app is coming soon. 

  • Dave Delaney

    If both remotes are identical and the IR signal is the same. I don’t imagine this will work. 

  • Rsemrau

    Somehow the two satellite units know one remote from the other. Does the Beacon not discriminate in the same way? Does it not learn codes from remote controls?

    Hi Dave – 2 questions – will Beacon work thru glass doors, and any updates for the ps3?

  • Dave Delaney

    Yes, Beacon work via IR. So, it should work through glass.

    If you have an IR adapter for your PS3, then Beacon should work. Out of the box, PS3 only supports control via BlueTooth, which will not work with Beacon.

    Hope this helps.

  • Dave Delaney

    Yes, if the codes are different for each remote, it should work fine. Thanks.

    I’d love the product but I want it to be able to work on the PS3… Is there anyway to do so?

  • Dave Delaney

    It should work with an IR adapter.

  • Rob

    Any word on an update to control boxee box?
