About Us

MissingRemote is a home for “smart” technology products and news. Historically our primary focus has been connected home, home theater, and networking. Like it, or not, the world is getting blanketed with computers and sensors (i.e. the bits that make things smart). We love it (most of the time) so we’ve recently branched out to cover other areas where “smart” products are enhancing the user experience like fitness.
