No TV Remote? No Problem, Thanks To A New App

Isn’t it so annoying when you have to have multiple remotes for different purposes? It’s particularly annoying when you happen to misplace one down the back of the sofa. Well, thanks to a new app from the geniuses at Tekoia, it’s no longer a big deal. Now, you can use your smartphone to control your smart appliances.

The SURE Universal Remote has impressive infrared and WiFi features which allow you to control various devices around your connected home such as televisions, amplifiers and cable boxes. Not only that, but it also supports the streaming of pictures, music and video from your smartphone to your smart TV, including the LG and Samsung range of smart TV’s. It also integrates with streaming products such as Google Chromecast, Apple TV and Roku to bring pictures, video and music to non-smart TVs.

The app is brought to you by Tekoia, a provider of universal remote solutions for smart appliances. This intuitive app means that you can treat your TV as a smart TV even if it isn’t. The app can also be used as a keyboard to help you find your favourite programme and as a mouse to allow games to be played with a wave of their hand.

The CEO of Tekoia said of the app: “How often do you find yourself wasting time looking for remotes around the home? Or when you have found it how often does it need new batteries? We created SURE universal remote to solve this problem. The main reason people are adopting smart technology within their homes is because of how seamless and efficient it is. So why should they accept anything less with how they can control these appliances? SURE empowers users to control their smart appliances in a quick and easy way. Just the way it should be.”
