Tekoia Launches SureMote -- Smart Universal Remote Control App for Infrared (IR) Multimedia Appliances

First Mobile App That Lets Users Easily Control Complex Multimedia Systems Including Multiple Appliances With Just One Click

RAMAT GAN, ISRAEL--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2014) - Tekoia, provider of remote control solutions for the Internet of Things, announced today the launch of SureMote, an innovative smartphone universal remote control app for digital media systems. SureMote is the first app that gives smartphone users a simple way to define and control complex multimedia systems, which are groups of multiple IR and smart appliances, such as media streamers, TVs, DVD players, and more.

SureMote replaces inconvenient hardware remotes with one simple, intuitive app that runs on leading Android smartphones with a built-in IR Blaster. SureMote includes an extensive database of IR appliances that gives users the power to control most leading media devices immediately. In addition to legacy appliances, SureMote can be used with smart appliances such as Apple TV and the iRobot Roomba vacuum.

"With SureMote we are solving one of the biggest headaches that people experience today -- having to deal with 3 or 4 different remotes just to watch a movie," says Viktor Ariel, Tekoia CEO. "We are very pleased to release SureMote and to share the convenience of one truly easy, customizable remote control for media systems with our customers."

The newest version of SureMote follows the design principle of "Do Not Make Me Think," creating a smartphone remote app that is intuitive and consistent. It enables control of complex multimedia systems, which are groups of appliances, through a unique and proprietary hierarchical paradigm. All SureMote setup is performed directly on the smartphone without the need for an external computer.

Currently, SureMote is available on Google Play for Samsung Galaxy S4/S5/Note and HTC One smartphones.

This version features:

  • Novel hierarchical systems for controlling groups of appliances
  • Simple and intuitive user interface
  • Extensive database of IR appliances
  • Simple test codes for appliance selection
