Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates generally to the wireless remote control devices and more particularly to a protection device for a wireless remote control device.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • As the world has become more technologically advanced, our reliance on wireless technology has increased while our reliance on mechanical devices such as knobs, dials, and switches has become less prevalent. In fact, wireless technology has become so common place that these once necessary manual devices and operations have almost been made obsolete by replacing many of these operations with the push of a button on a wireless remote control device. As such, the operation of these push button remote control devices have replaced many inconvenient manual operations, such as turning a television dial, operating a stereo or VCR and/or turning an automobile key to start or unlock a vehicle.
  • Wireless remote control devices have been around for years and have been used to control many different types of devices, including televisions, stereos, VCR's, DVD players and even answering the telephone. As such, almost every home in the United States includes at least one remote control device of some kind. As expected, this wireless technology would not be confined only to living spaces and has thus become prevalent in many other industries, such as the automotive industry. For example, keyless entry remote control devices and remote control car starters have become common options in a wide variety of automobiles allowing the owner of the vehicle to open and/or start his or her automobile quickly, easily, and remotely. Opening an automobile door without fumbling around with a key, along with having that automobile started and ready to operate upon arrival, is not only a desirable convenience, but in many cases may also be a matter of security. This is because in high crime areas the longer a person takes to retrieve his/her keys and unlock their car may increase their risk of being assaulted and/or robbed. As such, standing around in a dark parking lot in a crime ridden area fumbling for keys is quite undesirable.
  • However, the need for keyless entry remote control devices and remote car starters to travel with the car and its operator made it necessary that the remote control devices also be more compact and portable than their entertainment appliance counterparts. As such, this need for portability resulted in these remote control devices being characteristically compact in size and key-ring attachable. Unfortunately however, as convenient and compact as key-ring attachable remote control devices are, they do have some drawbacks. First, key-rings are typically home to a plurality of hard metal keys. As such, any keys and remote control devices that are attached to the key-ring may be jostled against each other and the other contents of a pocket or pocketbook while a person moves about, possibly causing damage to the push buttons on the remote control device. Additionally, these key rings and their attachments may be thrown and/or dropped, exposing the attached remote control devices to all kinds of blunt trauma and impact. As its size typically leaves the remote control device ill-equipped to handle the type of abuse the key ring may be subjected to the possibility of damage to the remote control device is increased.
  • Additionally, the jostling of the remote control device may have implications far beyond just physically damaging the remote control device. For example, as the remote control device is disposed within a pants' pocket or a pocketbook, the remote control device buttons may be accidentally engaged by the items being bumped up against the remote control device. This is undesirable because if the button(s) of a remote control device are accidentally engaged, the automobile may become unlocked or started without the owners intent and/or knowledge, possibly leading to theft of the vehicle or its' contents and/or depletion of the vehicle's entire fuel supply.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • A remote control protection device is provided and includes a device housing, wherein the device housing includes a housing front associated with a housing rear via a housing base to define a housing cavity for containing a wireless remote control device having at least one actuation device for wirelessly communicating with a remote device, wherein when the wireless remote control device is disposed within the housing cavity, the at least one actuation device is disposed adjacent to the device housing
  • A remote control protection device is provided and includes a device housing, wherein the device housing includes a housing rear portion, a housing side portion and a housing front portion defining a housing cavity for containing a wireless remote control device having an actuation device, wherein the housing front portion is movably associated with the device housing to be configurable between a closed configuration and an open configuration, and wherein when the wireless remote control device is disposed within the housing cavity and the housing front portion is configured into the closed configuration, the housing front portion is disposed adjacent the actuation device and when the wireless remote control device is disposed within the housing cavity and the housing front portion is configured into the open configuration, the housing front portion is disposed away from the actuation device.
