An App That Will Turn Your Mobile Device Into A Remote Control
A mobile company based on Texas has developed an application that will enable your mobile device to act as a remote control to operate your smart television, Apple TV, Thermostats, digital video recorder and many other devices that need an IP address to operate.
The Ube, as it had been termed, is able to connect with any object that has an Internet Protocol address. The application can also be connected to other electronic devices that do not operate through any IP address, with the help of smart plugs. These plugs are fitted with microprocessors and can be attached to any standard outlet of any electronic gadget. The Ube can even be used in a switch dimmer of multi-touch lights.
The application has been planned to be distributed free of cost, but the dimmer will be priced at about 60 US Dollar. Even the plug and the outlet has been planned to be priced at $55 each.
In addition to all these functions, the application is also reported to be able to record the amount of energy being consumed in your room and even suggest you remedies through which you will be able to reduce the power consumption.
The application is a giant leap of technical development that enables the mobile device to be used as a remote control device. Now you will be able to control almost any electronic device through your mobile phone itself. The application will also help you to register the reading of the temperature to which your thermostat is adjusted to, and even the name of the channel that is being played on your smart television.
