The Best Hisense Compatible Remotes

When you think about Smart TVs, Chinese TV manufacturer Hisense doesn’t necessarily come to mind immediately.

best remotes for hisenseSamsung, Sony, TCL-Roku, LG, Insignia, Vizio—are the brands that are top of mind for most consumers when it comes to smart TV brands.

But think again. Hisense is gaining on the competition, especially among avid streaming media viewers.

In fact, a recent article published in Consumer Reports explains how Hisense is gaining ground in the high-end TV market.

A slightly older article published in Variety Magazine talks about how six million of the company’s avid TV users stream over 200 minutes of video every day. Now that’s a whole lotta streaming going on!

But it’s hard to stream the latest season of Stranger Things, if you lose your remote. Perhaps even worse, having to use two, three, or even four remotes just to get your entertainment experience going can be downright annoying.

In this article, I cover the five best remotes for Hisense TVs.  Two of these will let you replace the Hisense factory remotes, and three of them are universal remotes that will let you consolidate multiple remotes down to one.

#1 – Best Overall: Sofabaton X1

Sofabaton X1: best remotes for hisenseThe Sofabaton X1 is also compatible with all Hisense Smart TVs. It also includes the Sofbaton Hub which controls your Bluetooth and infrared (IR) devices over radio frequency (RF) waves.

The remote itself is streamlined and features an LCD display panel that lets you control custom Activities you can create, like “Watch TV” or “Play Game.” When an activity is selected, the Hub goes to work and fires up all of the required devices for that activity. Very cool.

Here’s what my X1 looked like before I set up my custom Activities:

My Sofabaton X1

The X1 will let you control up to a whopping 40 devices, and the battery life is nothing short of amazing at 60 days on a single charge. Yes, you heard that right, 60 days, not hours. It also can control some smart home devices like lights and blinds, and it even works with Alexa and Google for voice control.

#2 – Premium Pick: Harmony Elite

Next on my list of the best of the best remotes for Hisense TVs is the granddaddy of universal remote controls, the Logitech Harmony Elite. Despite Logitech’s shocking announcement that they will no longer be making Harmony remotes, the Harmony Elite is still one of the best universal remote controls you can buy today.

That is if you can find one. Here’s my Harmony Elite in need of a recharge as I have been using the X1:

My Harmony Elite

You get most of the functionality of what the X1 provides, plus a beautiful color touchscreen remote that gives you swipe and tab abilities, haptic feedback, and customizable touchscreen buttons for activities.

The Elite is limited to controlling up to 15 home theater devices, but it will control your smart devices too. All Harmony remotes are compatible with Logitech’s database of 275,000 devices from some 5,000 brands.  Some setup is required, and it can be a bit challenging. You will need to set this up using both your PC and a smartphone option.

You can read my full review of the Harmony Elite here.

Please note: Prices of the Logitech Harmony have gone UP dramatically since Logitech announced it is sunsetting the Harmony line, making this a great time to buy this remote.

BroadLink RM4 Mini IR

Next on my list of the best remotes for Hisense TVs isn’t really a remote at all. It’s the Broadlink RM4 Pro hub and app.

In addition to controlling your Hisense TV via your smartphone or your voice, Broadlink RM4 Pro provides a simple and affordable way to achieve home automation. This device can automate older devices and appliances and can be controlled with your phone or voice assistants, Amazon Alexa or Google Home. It’s pretty much anything with an existing remote control that can be added to the app and controlled via your phone or voice assistant.

Want to automate your ceiling fan or cheesy remote-controlled fireplace?  (Don’t worry I have one too.)  Broadlink can be just a ticket. The only requirement is that the device can be controlled via a remote.  It will also work with smart home devices such as Phillips Hue Lighting and Sonos smart speakers.

Best of all, you can program activities like Movie Night.

Say what?

When you press the Movie Night button on your smartphone, the hub goes to work and fires up all required devices. This might include turning on the TV and soundbar, tuning to Netflix, and dimming your Phillips Hue smart bulbs. The intuitive phone app lets you swipe and tap to control channels, watch movies, and more.

The drawbacks to using Broadlink are that it takes a while to set up, and it needs to have a line of sight (LOS) to the devices to work properly.  Also, if you prefer a physical remote to guide your binge-watching spree, this is not the solution for that.

Still, this is a great option if you don’t need a physical remote and don’t mind controlling your TV with your phone.

#4 – OEM Replacement: Hisense Remote

hisense smart tv remote replacement

Further down the food chain is this super highly rated and equally affordable replacement remote:  the HiSense EN-33922A TV Remote Control. This is not a universal remote but rather a replacement remote that won’t control your smart home devices or anything other than your Hisense TV, for that matter.

But it will work right out of the box with the Hisense TV models listed below.

  • LHD32K366WUS
  • LTDN40K366NWUS
  • LTDN40K366WUS
  • LTDN50K366GWUS
  • LTDN50K610GW
  • LTDN55K610GW

What is most interesting to me is that the customers who own this remote actually like it. This really is not typical for remotes that ship with the TV.  There is a prominent button for Netflix, which surely is a fan favorite with Hisense’s streaming media fan club.

HiSense EN-33922A TV Remote Control
  • Brand new HISENSE Smart Internet TV REMOTE CONTROL! Original new

#5 – Hisense Roku TV: GEC Remote

Last on my list of best remotes for Hisense TVs is this little fella from GEC.

If you own a Hisense Roku TV and just want to replace the remote, then this replacement remote will do the job nicely.

That is, of course, if all you want to do is replace a lost remote. It won’t let you consolidate multiple remotes down to one, and it definitely won’t let you control your smart home stuff or work with Alexa. But, it will let you control your Hisense Smart Roku TVs on the cheap, cheap, cheap.

You just install two new AA batteries to get you in business. Buttons include Netflix, Sling, Hulu, and, oddly NOW or Google Play.
