Remotey© and the Future of Retail

Remotey© Control

Remotey© Control uses WebSockets to turn any mobile phone into a remote control. This means people can use their phones to interact with almost anything. 

As much as we love apps, Remotey© is 100% web browser-based meaning there’s no need for people to download anything to interact.  

Given the global uptake of QR codes,  this web-based controller is a game-changer when it comes to retail and activations. Remotey© has the ability to remove the need for touchscreens and physical buttons while still delivering engaging interactive experiences.

Accessories Configurator

Shoppers can use their phones to browse on-screen catalogues. The large screen format, coupled with rich content makes this a rewarding in-store experience for the shopper. As shoppers take themselves through the experience the retailer can learn about their wants and needs. Cookies placed on the shopper’s personal device allow us to continue the in-store journey on social media and other places online. 


Remotey© gives shoppers control of the digital screens in the same way as a console controller. This type of in-store activation is perfect for entertaining customers as they wait. The beauty of using Remotey© to facilitate this type of interactive gaming is the retailer doesn’t need dedicated screens just for gaming. Remotey© can turn any screen or projection into a gaming station and back again at the tap of a button.

Again because the customer is using their personal device to interact with the retailer can acquire a lot of data. We can also place helpful cookies on their device which allows us to continue to have meaningful conversations with the shopper later on.

Smart Home Builder

As the promise of tech products integrating with each other becomes more appealing, it’s also getting harder for shoppers to wrap their heads around which products will suit their needs. A Remotey controlled Smart Home Builder for example will help make this path to purchase a lot easier by helping shoppers curate the best products and configurations to match their needs.

Plan Builder

Similar to the Smart Home Builder, putting together the right product plan can be confusing. Using Remotey© and any in-store screen, shoppers can configure the best plan to suit their needs. As with all our suggestions, we recommend that the in-store experience feels remarkably different from the online equivalent. The reason for this is we need the in-store experience to delight and offer something new. By doing this we will learn new things and gain the potential to create further, meaningful conversations with our customers down the road.

After Hour Experiences

Remotey© gives stores the opportunity to turn any and all window displays into 24-hour interactive portals. Using traditional technology like storefront touch screens or foils is incredibly expensive. Using Remotey© means retailers can activate their storefronts at a fraction of the cost. As with all experiences using Remotey©, this opportunity will open up many avenues to delight, deliver and learn from customers. 

Large Scale Interactive Experiences

Remotey© is capable of controlling a lot more than just screens. The same web browser tool can be used to activate large-scale projections, remote activations, or any other interactive experience. Each time we create an experience for customers we create an opportunity to serve, learn, and continue conversations in order to deliver goods and services people want.  

A hand-in-hand path to purchase

Together is better

By creating and delivering outstanding content that takes retailers and shoppers on a journey together, everyone wins. Shoppers walk away from the experience having learned, explored, and connected with their new product. While at the same time, the retail store gains insight into the shopper’s offline world. This symbiotic relationship is key to how retail talks with customers from now on.
