You do not need active mobile service, but you will need internet access to set PUCK up. After it is setup, PUCK communicates with the phone via Bluetooth, so internet access is no longer needed.
PUCK can be setup with multiple phones, but the current version only allows 1 phone/tablet to connect while the app is open. As soon as you navigate away from the app, another phone can pair with PUCK.

PUCK is a very simple device and the main components are a Bluetooth Low-Energy radio and an infrared emitter. It is a one-way communication device, meaning that the phone app sends a signal to the PUCK but receives nothing in return (other than the standard acknowledgment that the code has been received from the app to the Bluetooth radio).
PUCK is powered from a replaceable 2032 coin cell battery. It ships with an Energizer battery that lasts between 6 months and a year under regular usage, but is easily replaceable.
Yes! The IR emitter on PUCK is offset to the side so it will not cover the IR sensor on the TV (if atttached directly to your TV).
No. The target device must be able to be controlled by an IR remote. Currently, PUCK only communicates with devices using infrared, and communicates with the phone using Bluetooth Low-Energy.
