In this article I will do my best to answer the question which universal remote controls work with the Firestick.

Some of you have written to me to say that other information on these remote controls, ahem, is a little missing (or even completely inaccurate). And we can’t let that happen.

The best universal remote controls that work with Firestick:

  1. Premium selection : Elite of Harmony
  2. Best price: Harmony companion
  3. Replacement of the budget : External voices from the Amazon
  4. The best alternative to Harmony: Sofabaton U1
  5. Remote control/keyboard combination : WeChip W2 Pro
  6. The best mini keyboard: Phosmon Mini
  7. The best Sidecar remote control: Box

This stick burns.

Controller According to a recent report by Grand View Research, the global smart TV market has exceeded $13.8 billion and is expected to continue to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.2% until 2025.

Yeah, you read that right, it’s 13.8 billion. Wow, that’s a lot of money for such a little stick. LOL.

Although it is difficult to say what share of this market Amazon has with Firestick, Amazon announced earlier this year that its Fire TV platform had exceeded the 40 million user mark. Spain has about 46 million inhabitants, Argentina 45 million and Ukraine 43 million.

It is therefore more likely that Amazons will dominate this market to a significant extent. Firestick leads the electronics category on Amazon.com and is still the sales leader throughout the Amazon range.

If you’ve been here, you’re probably already a proud owner of a Firestick, so I won’t bore you with stories about the benefits of ownership.

1. Premium selection: Harmony Elite

Which universal remote controls work with Firestick?

Harmony Elite is the top of the line when it comes to Harmony remotes and remotes in general, at least on the consumer side. The most interesting feature is the color LCD screen that allows you to start activities such as watching a movie, listening to music or going out with someone.

It’s a bit difficult to set up, but once you do, everything works perfectly. For example, Watch a Movie can automatically turn on the TV, switch the input to Firestick, turn on the soundbar, AV receiver and surround sound system, and even dim the lights and change their colour.

The Harmony Elite is mine and I love it. It’s not cheap, but the biggest advantage is that you can get rid of all your other remotes, including the Firestick remote control. And you can use it to check everything you’ve got. This includes both smart home appliances and home cinema systems.  It even works with Alexa and Google for voice control. You can check the price on Amazon here or read my full review of Harmony Elite here.

for

  • A brightly coloured LCD screen will impress your friends
  • The activity makes it possible to switch on multiple devices at the same time.
  • Customizable hard keys
  • Haptic feedback – vibrates
  • All keys are backlit
  • Alex and the Google Voice Assistant
  • Often there is a revised version available (this is the version I bought).

Other

  • It’s expensive.
  • They can’t do them fast enough, they often fail.

This is the best universal remote control you can buy. Period. A beautiful color LCD touch screen, haptic feedback, one-touch activities, Alexa and Google support and smartphone applications for the whole family. It’s the only remote that controls them all.

2. Best value: Harmony Companion

Which universal remote controls work with Firestick?

The next on my list of universal remotes that work with the Firestick is Harmony Companion.

In a recent study comparing the Elite of the Harmony and the Companion of the Harmony, I called the Companion the Elite of the Poor. It’s probably not fair when it comes to Firestick, for two reasons. On the one hand, it’s not as cheap as some of the other budget options on my list. Second, it’s a great remote control, but it doesn’t have the elite LCD touchscreen or support so many devices.

The fact that it has most of the characteristics of the elite. This includes programmable buttons for the same activities I mentioned above. It also manages your smart home technology and home entertainment equipment (up to eight), including Firestick and virtually any other streaming service.  It also allows you to control your TV with your voice via Alexa and Google Assistant (and Apple Homekit / Siri to a lesser extent).

for

  • Intelligent home and home cinema control
  • Consolidation of up to eight home cinema remote controls (unlimited number of smart devices)
  • Actions give you full control over multiple devices and the order in which they are turned on.
  • Alexa and Google’s Voice Assistant
  • The control units behind the cabinets
  • Smart Home application turns smartphones and tablets into customizable remote controls for the whole family

Other

  • The installation is automated, but takes some time.
  • No LCD screen is as cool as that of the Elite.
  • Customers complain about problems with the repaired model
  • It’s cheaper than Elite, but still expensive if you only want to check the Firestick.

This remote control receives generally positive reviews from technical reviewers and customers. Here’s one from my friend Robb Sutton.

Harmony Companion offers the same advantages as Harmony Elite, but without the colour LCD screen and with the ability to combine eight remotes instead of fifteen.

3. Budget Replacement: AmazonVoice remote control

Which universal remote control works with Firestick The Amazon Alexa remote control is next on my list of universal remote controls that work with Firestick.

Let me start by saying that there are still several generations of this remote area on the Amazon.  So you want to make sure you choose a Firestick compatible version.

The remote controls on 2. Fire TV Stick Lite, Fire TV Stick 2020 release, Fire TV Stick (2nd generation), Fire TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube (2nd generation), Fire TV Cube (1st generation), and Amazon Fire TV (3rd generation, suspended design). Not compatible with Amazon Fire TV (1st and 2nd generation), Fire TV Stick (1st generation) and Amazon Fire TV Smart TV Edition.

It adds volume for power, volume and mute, so you don’t have to switch between remotes. You can also use it for basic comments from Alexa, for example. For example, checking the weather, playing music, getting sports scores, watching live videos and checking certain smart home devices.

for

  • Profitable
  • Suitable OEM replacement for existing Firestick remote control
  • Supports the most common Alexa orders
  • Firestick voice search to find your favorite content (e.g. Alexa to find science fiction movies).
  • 2 AAA batteries included

Other

  • Compatible with Fire Stick 2. Generation, but NOT with Fire Stick 2.
  • Not compatible with all televisions
  • Some customers complain that the installation instructions are confusing.
  • Cannot check other inputs
  • It is difficult to remove the battery cover.

4. Alternative Harmony: Sofabaton U1

Which universal remotes work with Firestick If it can’t go wrong with Harmony, there is a cheaper newcomer with its own fan base.  The Sofabaton is an LCD remote that offers many of the same functions as the Harmony, but is much more than just a device.

The device is easy to set up because it learns what to do by pointing to the remote control for other devices. Highlights include an OLED display with a flywheel for easy device sharing, motion activation to conserve battery power, and macro buttons to control multiple devices simultaneously, such as on the Harmony.

As for the Firestick universal remote controls, these are a decent budgetary option.

for

  • Cheaper than Harmony Hub-based remotes.
  • OLED display
  • The company claims to be compatible with more than 500,000 devices from more than 6,000 brands.
  • Macros at the touch of a button
  • One year warranty
  • Elevator to wake up the option

Other

  • Can only be paired with one Bluetooth device at a time (e.g. only with Firestick).
  • The color of the LCD monitor is not as good as that of the Elite and may be brighter.
  • No voice or keyboard control
  • Macros do not allow you to change the input.
  • Does not support Wi-Fi devices such as. B. the Roku Stick.
  • Consumers complain about low RI over long distances
  • Customers report problems with Roku and Fire TV Interaction

5. Board of Directors Demonstration suit: WeChip W2

Which universal remote controls work with Firestick OK, although this remote control requires a hack to use with Firestick, I just had to record it here. Let me start with the robbery. An On-The-Go (OTG) adapter cable is required to use the Firestick [Amazonelink]. Indeed, you need to connect the USB stick to use the remote control. You can get Amazon’s remote and adapter for a fraction of the price of Harmony remotes here.

There are two very cool things about this remote control. On one side there are simple but standard remote controls and on the other side a full Qwerty keyboard. This can be useful not only for finding content on the Firestick, but also for surfing YouTube and other content.  The second nice thing is that it works like an air console. That means you literally swing it in the air like a magic wand and it does something. Very Harry Potter.

for

  • Remote control, air remote and control panel in one device
  • Long battery life, which lasts for weeks after a single charge
  • Budgetary approach
  • Ideal for seniors and children
  • Protection function against loss of alarm when dongle button is pressed

Other

  • Not compatible with all smart TVs
  • Does not integrate with Alexa or Google.
  • Keys are not illuminated
  • The voice-activated remote control is not compatible
  • USB connection required (for Firestick this means you need an OTG cable)
  • Several people have reported problems with non-reactive volume control when using the Firestick.
  • No home button

WeChip W2 Pro 2.4G Wireless remote control keyboard with light for Android/PC/Smart TV/Projector All-in-One PC box

  • Connecting and playing and voice input : Simply connect the USB receiver to the device you want to operate and use it without modification. When you press the voice button and speak into the microphone, it automatically searches for the desired TV programme or APP, very convenient especially for the elderly and children (most Samsung/Sony/LG/TCL/Roku Smart TVs may not be compatible).
  • Illuminated keyboard : The touch is matte, the texture is achieved by laser technology, an extra layer of rubber around the pneumatic remote control so that it lies well in the hand and does not slip, and the magnification of the buttons and the pneumatic remote control to make it more comfortable and easier to use. New backlight makes it easier to read the keys in the dark
  • Alarm clocks: If you can’t remember where the remote control is placed, press the button on the USB receiver and the built-in alarm bell will be activated. If you find the sound source, you can easily find your remote control, which will save you a lot of money when you buy a new one. (If you want to stop the alarm earlier, press the button on the USB receiver and the alarm will be stopped).

6. Phosmon Mini

Which universal remote controls work with the Firestick Although it’s not a universal remote control in itself, it’s a great little keyboard that allows you to control the Firestick like a champion.

So if you need a gaming keyboard to navigate through Firestick, Fosmon is a great and super affordable way to get around. At least one YouTuber I know (AtReef) called it a life-changing product. I agree. I now have two remote controls on my coffee table. This remote-controlled keyboard and the Harmony Elite.  I had seven remote controls to control my home theater.

I use my Fosmon Mini mainly for YouTube, but it also works very well for searching other streaming services, including Firestick.

for

  • Mini keyboard and trackpad with all functions
  • Lies well in the hand
  • Ideal for PC home cinema
  • Can be connected to both the PC and the Firestick.
  • You can use the trackpad and the arrow keys to navigate through the Firestick.

7. Sidecar remote control: Page click on

Which universal remote controls work with Firestick Finally, the innovative clip remote control is on my list of universal remote controls that work with Firestick.

If you’re just looking for extra functionality for your existing Fire TV remote, the Sideclick Universal Remote is worth watching. Installation is easy if you have the original remote controls you want to replace. Otherwise, don’t buy it; you can’t install it without the existing remote control. More importantly, it allows you to control a number of other devices from one location.

If you are constantly messing around with a TV remote control, a Firestick remote control and a Sounbar remote control, this may be a good solution for you.

for

  • Cost effective accessories for existing fire alarm control panels
  • Increases functionality
  • Can control most TVs, Fire TV, soundbar and Blu-ray with a single remote control.
  • Learn about an existing remote control
  • Customizable buttons for your devices

Other

  • Requires the original remote control(s) for installation.
  • Separate batteries required
  • No support for activities
  • No keyboard
  • Few customers have complained about breaking clips after limited use.
  • There is no left-handed model; the company recommends to mount it upside down.
