Two remotes- two computers?

Now that i’m finally getting around to setting up my devices, I have a question. If I have two remotes, and I want each one to be set up differently, then each one has to be connected to a different mac/ipad? If I connect both to my ipad then they will just be clones?

Right now any remote connected to a single computer/phone will control the same actions on that computer/phone. In other words, two remotes connected to one machine will both perform the same actions. I have plans to expand that but it doesn’t seem to be much of a need as of yet.
