App also provides media streaming to Smart TVs and expanded support for thousands of IR appliances.

Tekoia, a provider of smart universal remote solutions for digital media, smart appliances and the Internet of Things (IoT), launched today the new version of SureMote - Smart Universal Remote app. The new version of SureMote enables users to control a group of smart appliances with a single button. Now, anyone with an Android phone using a built-in IR blaster can enjoy an elegant, one-device substitute to the multiple hardware remotes scattered around their living rooms.

SureMote allows users to simply and rapidly organize several multi-media devices into "systems" - groups of appliances that can be operated simultaneously from the same app, using both Infrared and WiFi connections. With a few clicks, a user can create a system including a variety of appliances such as a smart TV, Blu-ray player and receiver. This becomes a media system, which can be turned on or off with just one button.

The new version of SureMote also has an improved IR database of thousands of devices from the United States, Europe and Asia Pacific, providing global appliance coverage. In addition, SureMote now controls smart WiFi appliances with support for LG Smart TV

SureMote also features a completely new viewing experience for personal photos, by streaming photos from the user smartphone to LG SmartTV, providing far superior picture enjoyment. With this new release, SureMote becomes the only universal remote to offer support for legacy IR appliances, smart WiFi appliances, and media streaming in a single app.

"By creating a way for users to very simply organize appliances into one system and control it with one button, we are reaching the holy grail for remote controls - literally the one-button remote. People want ease of use, not the endless frustration that comes with juggling multiple remotes and lots of confusing buttons," said Viktor Ariel, CEO of Tekoia. "Now, SureMote delivers a user experience which is elegant and intuitive. As we move from smart TVs to all the smart appliances in the home, ease of use is essential."

SureMote is completely free and supported by graphical mobile advertising, which does not interfere with operation of the remote. In addition, Tekoia observes a strict privacy policy and does not collect private user information beyond appliance usage data. No user sign-in is required.

SureMote Smart Universal Remote works on the latest Android devices with a built-in IR blaster such as Samsung Galaxy phones, tablets and phablets, LG G3, and HTC One smartphones. Today SureMote works with LG Smart TVs. Support for additional smart TVs and media streamers is coming by the end of 2014.

SureMote features summary:

1. Great user experience
2. One-button control for a system of appliances
3. Simultaneous IR and WiFi connections to multiple appliances
4. Easy addition of new appliances
5. Digital picture streaming from SureMote to a smart TV
