"My children love The Weemote because it is the easiest way for them to
watch TV. With this controller I know I can leave the room unattended and know they are watching good TV programs. Thanks" - Tina McFall
DESIGNED FOR YOUR KIDSEach favorite channel has it's own unique shape
and color. The Weemote also features a "safe channel surfing button" when pressed, only goes to the channels you have programmed. When using both a TV and a set-top box, one single power button turns on both devices and sets everything up for reliable operation. With only nine user buttons, the Weemote offers a true, clutter free environment for young children.
EASY TO SETUP
We also made the Weemote easy to program and setup. A typical setup using the Weemote with a cable ready TV takes about five minutes. Select the channels and program in your TV or Set-Top code and your ready to go. Step by step instructions as well as a Quick-start guide come with each unit. You can download and print the manuals by going to our Customer Support Page.
MOST TV's AND SET-TOP BOXES ARE SUPPORTED
The Weemote has an extensive library of remote control codes to support all major brand televisions and Set-Top boxes. We refer to Set-Top boxes as cable boxes normally used when subscribed to a premium cable service or satellite boxes such as those provided by DirecTV,
Primestar, Dish Network, etc. With the current digital Set-Top boxes supporting hundreds of channels, you can truly appreciate the Weemote's ability to provide a select group of appropriate channels for your children. All Set-Top box configurations must be connected to the television using a standard antenna connection with the TV set to channel 3 or 4.
See the System Requirements section on our customer support page if you would
like further information on what systems the Weemote supports.
DESIGNED FOR PARENTS
The weemote features a parental program area that normally is secured and hidden from the child. This child friendly design exposes only the controls that they need to use, unlike standard remote controls
that provide too many buttons for young children to operate. Both the parental setup area and battery compartment are secured by screws. The Weemote uses two AAA batteries (not included) and uses very low power electronics for long battery life. Even in a low battery state, the Weemote can retain it's configuration for months. You can even replace the batteries and still be assured that your configuration is safe (within five hours).

- The home channel option may not work in certain entertainment systems.
The home channel feature ensures that when the TV is turned on that the TV will be changed to first safe-programmed channel in the Weemote, i.e. the green #1 button.
- The volume option allows you to turn the volume control off in the Weemote, allowing you to set the desired volume level by the adult remote or front panel of the TV and/or Set-Top device.
- The channel up/down option is useful for children who are disabled and can
get easily confused between operating the dedicated channel buttons and channel up/down control.
- DIRECTV BRAND RECEIVERS
We have discovered a code compatibility issue with the latest series of DirecTV branded Satellite Receivers. Specific units involved are the DirecTV branded models D10, DVR80, DTC210 and HR10250. Currently, all product code version weemote's will not work with these devices. Please note that
this notice only involves the latest model DirecTV branded Satellite Receivers. Older models or those with a brand name printed on them like RCA, Philips, Samsung, etc. are not affected.
- IR vs. RF
Some Satellite Set-Top receivers use RF/UHF radio signaling between the remote control and the Set-Top receiver. This allows a user to roam virtually
anywhere in their house, or point the remote in any direction and change channels. It also allows the Set-Top receiver to be hidden from view, i.e. behind a cabinet. If you are able to change channels on your Set-Top receiver from anywhere in your house and you notice a small antenna attached to your Set-Top receiver, then your unit is set to operate the Remote Control over radio frequency (RF/UHF) signals.
The Weemote uses standard Infrared Signaling (IR) to communicate with TV's
and Set-Top boxes. This signaling is also referred to as IR Remote Control. Most systems use IR communication between the Remote Control and the Satellite Set-Top receiver. IR communication requires that you point your remote directly at your Satellite Receiver and that you are within 15-30 feet of the unit.
If your system uses radio frequency (RF/UHF) signaling and has no MENU option for IR communication, then the Weemote will not work with your
Satellite Set-Top receiver. Two identified models using RF remote control is the Echostar Model 4000 receiver and the DirecTV D10 HD receiver using the RC-24 style remote control.
