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) -- 08/05/14 -- 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.

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

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
