The Volume Remote iOS app provides remote control of the volume of your MacOS (OS-X) computer. You mute the sound. You can also remotely put your computer to sleep.
Great when listening to music or watching a movie on your computer. The Volume Remote app can be used from any room in your house, or the convenience of your arm chair. The app uses your wireless network so it doesn't suffer the drawbacks of infra-red controllers.
Free companion software must be installed onto your OS-X computer. Download the JazzRemoteServer package and open it on the computer you wish to control. It installs the server software and a System Preference Panel to control the server. (This server software is the same software used with the EyeTV Remote app. It only needs to be installed once).
You must also purchase and install the Volume Remote App from the iTunes store.
Should you have issues with any part of the process, please contact us and we will be happy to assist. You might also like to check the Remote Server Setup page to assist with troubleshooting.
Volume Remote does not collect or transmit any personal or usage information to any party.
The installer package bundles a number of files together, each with their own version. To simplify matters the installer package has been given a version number also, which is the number on the downloaded file, as listed below. When a new installer version is provided, only some of the components may have changed.
You can view the Jazz Remote Server server software version, and the version of the Preference Pane from within the Jazz Remote Preference Pane. The versions belonging to other server components are not so readily visible.
The following are installer package versions (show more)
Latest (v1.2.0) includes new code in preparation for future iOS remote software, and notarization required for Catalina (MacOS 10.15).
The package updates Jazz Remote Server to version 1.3.0. In coming iOS versions, this enhancement will provide more regular updates when the iOS device is idle. It should also improve battery performance through reduced network activity.
The update maintains compatibility with older iOS remote versions, but future iOS versions will require this package in order to be updated while idle.
