Remotely controlling Roku TV

Jump to solution

Hello, is there a way to control the TV remotely - like when I am not home?  My husband has dementia and is not able to go to proper channel to watch TV and I would like to be able to do this for him when I am not home.  I downloaded the app but I have to be on same network (basically at home) for it to work, which is useless for my purposes.

Please advise & Thanks!
