How Peel Smart Remote Saved my Life Last Night


This happened just last night. I was in bed, sleeping peacefully and it was very late; must have been around 3:00 am. That is when it happened. I woke up with a bad dream and was lying cold out there and the powers conspired such that I could not find the AC remote anywhere! All I wanted to do was turn that stupid AC off.

This happened just last night. I was in bed, sleeping peacefully and it was very late; must have been around 3:00 am. That is when it happened. I woke up with a bad dream and was lying cold out there and the powers conspired such that I could not find the AC remote anywhere!

All I wanted to do was turn that stupid AC off. Thankfully I knew where I keep my phone every night. I just picked that, opened the Peel app and turned the forsaken air conditioner off!

This is something that happened with a lot of people. And that is why, today, I'm writing about the Peel app and how you can use it better, especially to operate your AC.

What is Peel Smart Remote?


Peel Smart Remote is an Android app that can transform your smartphone into an even smarter remote control. Using the Infrared hardware on your phone or with the WiFi network, you can control many devices that are controlled by a remote - TVs, STBs, ACs, streaming devices, smart lights and the list is endless.

Not just that, I even get to connect to my regional TV service provider and see the entire schedule for the day or the week. I never miss my favourite shows this way.

How can you operate an AC with Peel?


When you download Peel Smart Remote on your Android smartphone, you will be able to connect the remote with the available devices. Now, you can either choose to connect it through the infrared hardware (if your mobile phone has an IR blaster) or you can connect it through the WiFi network if your AC is WiFi enabled. If you don't have either, you can even get yourself a small WiFi device for your AC.

You can follow below steps to add your AC as one of the devices:
  1. On the remote section of the app, tap on the plus icon (+).
  2. Select Air Conditioner from the list of devices you want to add.
  3. Follow prompts to set up.

Once you complete the initial setup, you will be able to control your AC at any time and from any place (for WiFi users connected to the same WiFi network).

You can even connect multiple ACs or other devices and name them accordingly. The user interface lets you swipe through the devices that you have connected with great ease. I have connected the TV in my room, my AC, the music system and also the set-top box to the Peel app.

How to add multiple rooms?


With the Peel app, you can even create multiple rooms and add devices based on the room. This especially helps when you want to increase the
To do so, you can follow the following steps:
  1. Launch the app.
  2. Go to App Settings
  3. Select Rooms and Remotes.

Under Rooms, select Add Room and simply name it as you like. You can add as many rooms as you like.

I have been using Peel since college days. I used to have a lot of fun lowering or increasing the room temperature in my lecture halls, during the boring classes. Not only that, there have been so many times that I have given a slight scare to my mother while she watched television.

Why use Peel and not the native device apps?


There came a time when for every new device I purchased, it came with an app to control the device. At first, I was so excited about it. This even made me uninstall Peel Smart Remote. But gradually when I had way too many apps and a different app for every other device, I decided it was time to switch back to Peel. I installed Peel Universal Remote again and have been using it continuously since.

Peel is an amazing app and I would definitely recommend this to digitally transform your home, that too for free!
