What is a Remote Control?
A remote control is a component of an electronic gadget/device used to control or operate wirelessly a machine or apparatus from a distance by means of infrared or radio signal/waves from a distance. Many best ceiling fans too are operated with remote control.
Why Remote Control?
With a fan remote control, one is allowed to operate with convenience devices that are out of reach for direct operation control. Remote control devices send out digitally coded pulses/waves of infrared radiations or radio signal so as to control functions/features such as
- Temperature set points
- Fan speed
- Other features used to operate electronic devices.
Many home electronic devices contain just a handful essential control features while a fan remote control contain an array of almost all control features. Most recent technology has improved remote control to include Bluetooth connectivity, voice control features and motion control connectivity.
Remote controls are designed to operate a specific device that its configured to match with but with improved technology, we have universal remote controls that can operate more than one device.
