Have you ever tried to change the settings on a vibrator when your hands are covered in lube? How about when the toy is buzzing away inside you at an awkward angle? What if you can’t find the button you’re looking for as you approach orgasm?
Fiddly on-toy buttons can quickly ruin the mood.
However, thanks to the marvels of modern technology, there are many sex toys and vibrators that can be controlled via smartphone apps and dedicated remote controls. You can even get wearable vibrator panties for some naughty public fun!
Here we count down the 15 best remote control vibrators on the market!
Our Top 15 Picks
1. Lovense Lush 2 – Best Remote Controlled Vibrator Overall
- Very popular with camgirls (and boys)
- Great for a long distance relationship
- Infinite vibration patterns
The Lovense Lush 2 is one of the most popular vibrators with remote control capabilities.
First off, you can control it via the Lovense Remote app on your smartphone. With this app, you can control your own Lush or use Wi-Fi to have your partner control your vibrator in real-time from 1,000s of miles away.
Lovense’s G-spot vibrating egg is also compatible with camming sites like Chaturbate and Cam4, where it can be programmed to respond to people’s tips with different vibration strengths and durations. Some camboys even use it anally, though this isn’t recommended due to the lack of a flared base.
2. Lovense Nora Rabbit Vibrator – Remote Control Rabbit Vibrator
- Rotating head for G spot
- Blended orgasms
- Smartphone controlled
The Lovense Nora is an app-controlled rabbit vibrator that connects to the Lovense Remote app, allowing you to sit back and relax while controlling the vibrations with the swipe of your fingers.
Nora’s rotating tip massages your G-spot while the clitoris arm tickles you pink. The Nora can be synced up with the Lovense Max 2 (a male sex toy) so you can both enjoy remote control sex in unison.
That’ll heat up your video calls!
3. Lovense Ambi – Best Remote Control Bullet Vibrator
- 4 x more powerful than other bullets
- Broad or pinpointed stimulation

Though there isn’t a huge demand for app-controlled bullet vibrators, lots of people nonetheless love the Lovense Ambi. This uniquely designed sex toy has broad and “pinpointed” areas that allow for varied clitoral stimulation.
If you’re having a boring day, why not slip this bad boy into your panties and tease yourself in the line at Starbucks? That’s one way to (pumpkin) spice up your day!

It’s certainly a unique sex toy experience!
8. OhMiBod Esca 2 – Best For Partner Play

15. Vibease – Panty Vibrator With Audio Erotica
- Syncs up with audio erotica
- Vibease app control
- 3-hour battery life
The Vibease is more of a concept than a sex toy – it’s a small panty vibrator designed to tickle the clitoris that you use through the Vibease smartphone app. The app contains 100s of erotic audiobooks, all of which are synced up with the remote control vibrator.
In other words, when the story gets hot, the toy will start vibrating.
While you can use the Vibease without the audio erotica, the whole USP of this toy revolves around the storytelling. If you like to imagine when you masturbate, I’d highly recommend giving Vibease a try. It’s 100% waterproof, USB rechargeable, and comes with a brilliant 3-hour battery life!
Vibrators You Can Control From Your Phone
It’s very common for remote control vibrators to have smartphone apps these days, especially if they’re made by one of the larger adult toy manufacturers like Lovense or Vibease.
Here are some of the most popular vibrators you can control from your phone:
- Lovense Lush 2 – vibrating love egg
- Lovense Nora – rabbit vibrator
- Lovense Ambi – bullet vibrator
- Lovense Hush – vibrating butt plug
- OhMiBod Esca 2 – vibrating love egg
- Vibease – panty vibrator that syncs with erotic audiobooks
- We-Vibe Chorus – couples vibrator for sex
- We-Vibe Moxie – discreet panty vibrator with magnetic clip
Some sex toys, like those from Lovense, allow you to create new vibrations on their app, download other users’ custom vibration settings, sync the vibrator up with Spotify so it vibrates to the beat, and even set up vibrations that respond to sounds picked up by your smartphone’s mic.
Famously, Lovense and We-Vibe sex toys also allow long distance couples to control each other’s sex toys over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, helping partners to tease one another from 1,000s of miles away (or just while they’re at work!)
How do app-controlled vibrators work?
App-controlled vibrators use Bluetooth to communicate with a purpose-built app on your phone. Here’s how the process works, step by step:
- Download the vibrator app onto your smartphone
- Switch on the vibrator
- Find the vibrator name with your phone’s Bluetooth
- The toys will sync and become connected
- Open the app and you can now control the vibrator with your phone
If you’re using app-controlled sex toys alone, then distance won’t be an issue. However, if you want to let your partner control your orgasms, then they need to be within Bluetooth range.
Most of the time, Bluetooth signals get lost when you move around 20-40 feet away from the vibrator. So it might be fine to use in your bedroom or across a dinner table, but don’t go much further.
What about long-distance vibrators?
Some remote control vibrators are long-distance sex toys that can be used by long-distance couples or partners that have been separated by work and business trips.
If you’ve got a toy (like the Lovense Lush 2) that works in this way, the system is very similar, but Wi-Fi comes into the equation.
- Your smartphone is connected to your vibrator through Bluetooth and the app (as normal)
- Your partner registers with the vibrator app and adds you as a “friend”
- He/she asks for access to control your vibrator from their location
- As they submit commands on their app, the signal is broadcast to your app through Wi-Fi across the internet
- Your phone picks up these signals and transmits them via Bluetooth
- The vibrator responds to your partner’s commands in almost-real-time
I know it can be a little tricky to follow how these things work, but I hope that explanation helped!
How Do You Use a Remote Control Bullet?
If you’ve got a bullet vibrator or panty vibrator with its own dedicated remote, then there are some basic tips you need to follow before using the device. This is especially true if you want to use the device in public for discreet play.
- Make sure the bullet is clean, functional, and fully charged before use
- Be sure to put the bullet in standby mode, if there is one
- Test the volume of the vibrations before using it in public – it could be louder than expected!
- Use water-based lube if necessary
- Wear tight-fitting panties that won’t let the toy fall out
- Make sure you can control your orgasmic reactions!
- Familiarize yourself with the different vibration modes and settings
- Be sure to wear an outfit that won’t reveal the suspicious lump in your panties!
Hopefully these tips help you out!
