I guess it’s the equivalent of having a virtual version of it. It actually would be nice for someone like me because I can “push a button” on a minimote by voice on a tablet when I can’t physically push the actual button.
But I still don’t understand making a composite device out of something that only has one button. But maybe it just makes the other logic consistent.
Regardless, whether it’s a composite device or not, it’s still has to work.
