Does the remote for Roku Express+ use blutooth?

I hate IR remotes, so does Roku Express+ use blutooth?  I tend to keep Roku devices out of sight.

Re: Does the remote for Roku Express+ use blutooth?

No it doesn't use Bluetooth, but it isn't IR either. It uses Wifi-Direct, so its signal will pass through walls. Of course this is current express+, earlier models came with an IR remote, but could be paired to a separately bought wifi remote.
