A remote control is a hand-held device for controlling mechanisms across a varied distance, predating voice-command technology.

Jonathan Archer used to fly model spaceships by remote control with his father. (ENT: "Broken Bow", "Similitude")

In the revised final draft script of "Broken Bow", the remote control used in conjunction with Archer's remote controlled model spaceship is described as "a small control unit." [1]

In 2152, Malcolm Reed used a remote control to detonate, from the bridge of Enterprise NX-01, an explosive device near a group of plasma canisters aboard an automated repair station. (ENT: "Dead Stop")

In the final draft script of "Dead Stop", this type of remote control is referred to as "a small hand-held detonator."

In 2270, an Orion lieutenant offered to rig a remote control device to detonate dilithium explosives on an asteroid's surface. The captain declined, saying he wanted to see the look on Kirk's face when he informed him of their mutual demise. (TAS: "The Pirates of Orion")

In 2376, B'Elanna Torres gave a television with a remote control to Tom Paris as a gift. Although she attempted to give the TV set a 1950s authenticity, remote controls were not available with TV sets until the early-1960s. (VOY: "Memorial")

Both Doctor McCoy (2269) and Ensign Nog (2374) operated neural stimulators by remote control to give motion to mindless bodies. (TOS: "Spock's Brain"; DS9: "The Magnificent Ferengi")
