When you integrate several devices with Peel remote control, you may think it will require tapping separately to control devices individually. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Peel lets you create custom remote combinations for multiple devices, allowing you to group controls for them and operate all of them simultaneously. Home assistance has just got more intelligent with Peel.
You can now talk to your devices.

This technology is especially beneficial for TV users since it not only accepts vocal commands to control devices but also understands the hints and cues in the command. For example, you can only tell it the star cast or any other key details of a movie and the app can show you the result.
Voice technology makes Peel home assistance even more effective. Once you start using it, you may not want to go back to the way you control your appliances at present.
