Fios TV Voice Remote
The new Fios TV® Voice Remote is a much smaller, sleeker and more advanced remote than many. It offers voice commands and even has a "find my Fios TV Voice Remote" feature in case it ever gets misplaced. It's convenient, intuitive and mostly--it's just fun to use.
The Fios TV Voice Remote is designed specifically for Verizon's latest model Fios TV One and only one Fios TV Voice Remote can be paired to each box.
Voice Remote Features
Find my Fios TV Voice Remote
If you misplace your Fios TV Voice Remote, press the power button on the Fios TV One twice. The Fios TV Voice Remote that’s paired with that Fios TV One will start making a beeping sound. When you find the Fios TV Voice Remote, press any button on the Fios TV Voice Remote to silence the beeping.
There is a sensor on the back of your Fios TV Voice Remote that activates the Fios TV Voice Remote light when it detects motion—making it easier for you to see the Fios TV Voice Remote in the dark.
Wireless Bluetooth connection
The Fios TV Voice Remote connects with your Fios TV One via a wireless Bluetooth connection so it will still work if your Fios TV One is hidden in a cabinet or other non-metal enclosure—as long as it’s not farther than 25 feet away.
Note: if your Fios TV One is enclosed, please make sure it gets adequate ventilation to prevent overheating.
