The SMPL TV Remote (SmplTec 55010) is an easy-to-use universal television remote for patients with Alzheimer's disease, patients who are partially sighted, and children. It can also be used in offices with waiting-room televisions and other work settings.

The SMPL Universal TV Remote is designed with an intuitive keypad. This keypad includes only the most essential buttons. Buttons included on this remote are a bright red power button, clearly marked channel-changing and volume buttons, and a gray mute button. Also included are five "favorite channel" buttons. These five buttons can each be programmed to change the channel to one of your loved one's favorite TV channels with just one press. All of the buttons on the SMPL TV Remote are oversized, tactile, and easy to read. The SMPL TV remote for Alzheimer's patients can help patients avoid the common confusion and frustration that accompanies the use of television remotes that have an excessive number of buttons. Because this product is easy to use, patients who use the SMPL remote tend to need less help from caregivers. The manufacturer states that this factor encourages patient independence and self-regard.

The SMPL TV Remote for Alzheimer's patients is designed to comfortably fit in the user's hand. It is also built to last with a durable ABS plastic casing. The battery cover is built to stay on the remote, so users should not have issues with it popping off and getting lost.

This remote is compatible with nearly every television and setup box on today's market. Setup for this remote is a simple, painless process. The SMPL TV Remote for Alzheimer's patients includes "Advanced Learning technology," which allows users to record signals just by pointing the patient's current television remotes at the SMPL remote. Programming buttons are hidden so accidental setting changes will not occur. A simple Phillips head screwdriver is all that is needed to access both the programming and battery compartments of the SMPL Universal TV Remote.

Can the SMPL Universal TV Remote Be Used for Both a Television and a DVD Player?

Yes, this is a possibility. This product’s Advanced Learning features allow the buttons to be programmed to the user’s preference. For example, a customer might choose to program the power, mute, and volume buttons for their intended functions and then program any of the five favorite channel buttons to control essential DVD functions, such as "play," "stop," and "pause."

Is the SMPL Universal TV Remote Compatible with Dish Network?

The SMPL remote can be used with Dish Network if the Dish Network receiver box can accept IR (infrared) commands, not just RF (radio frequency) commands. You can find out if your receiver receives IR commands by using your current remote. If you are able to use the remote without pointing it directly at the receiver (for example, by pointing the remote the opposite direction of the receiver or by using it from another room), your receiver accepts infrared commands. If you have to point the remote directly at the receiver for it to communicate with the receiver, your receiver only accepts radio commands. If this does not work, you may want to check your receiver's user manual or its setup menu to see if your receiver accepts both RF and IR commands. Some receivers accept both, so you may just need to change your receiver's settings for it to receive IR commands.
