CHINA, TAIWAN: The SureMote smartphone universal remote app – the first designed to be both easy to use and fully customizable right from the phone was announced at Computex.

SureMote from Tekoia controls smart media streaming devices and legacy appliances using either WiFi or the phone’s infrared capability, all from the app. The SureMote Computex demo highlights the LG SmartTV and media streaming capability as well as controlling legacy appliances, such as the iRobot Roomba vacuum.

A typical family has four old remotes which are hard to use, non-standard and only control a limited number of devices each. Considering that remote control devices were first introduced by Nikola Tesla in 1898, these devices have not made much progress in more than a century. Developing a universal remote app that is easy to use, hard to lose and works with WiFi and infrared has been a surprisingly hard problem.

Today, with the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), the SureMote smartphone universal remote app is poised to control almost everything in your house starting with legacy IR appliances as well the new generation of WiFi-driven smart appliances. Using proprietary technology developed by Tekoia, SureMote runs on Android devices and is a platform for development of additional Smart Living functions needed for the IoT.
