In electronics, to operate an electronic device wirelessly from a distance, a remote control

used as a component of electronic device. A remote control can be used to operate devices
such as a television set, DVD player, or other home appliance, from a short distance. A

controls are commonly consumer infrared devices which send digitally-coded pulses of
infrared radiation to control functions such as power, volume, tuning, temperature set point,

for these devices are usually small wireless handheld objects such as television channel, track
number, and volume. For many devices, the controlled device itself has only a handful of
essential primary controls while the remote control contains all the function controls. The
remote control code, and thus the required remote control device, is usually specific to a
product line, but there are universal remotes, which emulate the remote control made for most
major brand devices.

In the 2000s, remote control has continually evolved and advanced to include Bluetooth
connectivity, motion sensor-enabled capabilities and voice control.
