Handheld electronic device. The remote is the only portable interface for a kino, and can control video recording toggle as well as the device's movement. It also functions as a portable dial-home device, and is necessary for dialing the Stargate from the surface of a planet (since there are no dial-home devices paired with Destiny-type Stargates).

If on a mission with an away team, the remote keeps an accurate countdown of time before Destiny departs from the Stargate network. It also lists the addresses of all gates that are in range of the current planet, as well as the address of Destiny when it is in range, updated in real time.
