How about Salling Clicker:


Use a WiFi phone or PDA to control your Mac or PC. The range of operation
will vary depending on your phone/PDA, but the range your talking about
seems doable. See their Forums for reports on devices that don't play well.

As far as gettting it to talk to Rev, my guess is it's doable. Not sure
about the PC options, but for Macs there a bunch of AppleScript examples:


The examples of how to simulate arrow clicks would suggest that receiving
'arrowKey' messages in Rev would be possible.
