So, when you open Peel Remote on your phone, if your phone doesn’t support IR, it would show you a pop-up box with a message that you need to connect both the devices to the same WiFi in order use this remote. But if your phone supports IR then it would enable you to select the device.
Connect Peel Remote to the devices with IR
So, here we would first get to know how to connect Peel Remote app to the devices with IR. If you see Let’s Gop button, it means your phone supports IR and you need to tap on that button.
Now, you have to select a device to which you need to connect the Peel Remote app. It would ask you to select a TV brand from the given ones but if you want to connect to other devices, simply scroll down and tap on the Add Other Device option.
It would provide you other devices to choose from.
Here I selected the TV option and then chose the TV brand. Then it took me to another page where it asked me to tap on the power button in order to check if the TV is responding to the remote.
You need to do this step until your TV responds to the Peel remote app. If it works, tap on the Yes button and if it doesn’t, select No, it would again let you check the button.
After that, you need to choose the TV service provider from the given list. Simple choose it and finish the process. This way you can connect other devices too.
I also tried to connect my set-up box to Peel remote and it connected successfully.

So, make sure that both the devices (your phone and the other device to which you wanna connect the Peel Remote) are connected with the WiFi. After that, it will scan the device and then you can follow the rest of the process just like the above one and connect as many devices as you want.
