FLIPPER UNIVERSAL REMOTE REVIEW: A BIG BUTTON REMOTE CONTROL IDEAL FOR THE ELDERLY

Below is a nice review a blog writer did on Flipper. Enjoy!

In this article, we provide a Flipper universal remote review. Flipper is a bug button universal remote that is ideal for seniors and the elderly.

It was at a late hour about a month ago that the dreaded call came.

“Timothy, I can’t figure out how to get the damn cable to go on again.”

Yes, again, and again, and again .

Don’t get me wrong, I love my mom, but she is probably the least technical person on the planet.

THIS IS YOUR DADDY’S REMOTE

If I had a silver dollar for every time I got that call, I’d be rich! At least until recently.

Why?

I purchased the Flipper Universal Remote Control for my senior parents.

Since then?

Crickets! Ah, the sweet sound of silence.

At least on the remote control front.

And so our Flipper universal remote review begins.

SHAME ON YOU CABLE AND TV MANUFACTURERS

Why TV and cable companies require anyone, let alone seniors, to have multiple remotes to watch television is beyond me.

I mean, it’s not like seniors are looking to control smart home devices or hook up elaborate audio systems to their entertainment centers.

They just want to watch Judge Judy, Wheel of Fortune, Law and Order, and maybe a little MSNBC from time to time.

Sound familiar?

If so, the Flipper Universal Remote control could very well be worth a look for your family.

FEATURES

The best thing about this remote from a features perspective is—there aren’t many!

This is great news for my mom and yours truly as well.

The remote itself is made of plastic and is super lightweight.

Big buttons are used to control the channel up and down and volume up and down. There is also a mute button on the main panel, which comes in handy when my near-deaf stepdad wants to get in on the conversation.

The remote requires two triple-A [AA] batteries that are not included.

A panel on the bottom half of the remote opens to reveal a keypad allow for specific channel selection and programming of devices.

The Flipper is designed to control two devices, and two devices only. These are your TV and Cable [or Satellite] box.
