 Smartphone App to Control Everything in Your Home

A single smartphone application controls any system in your home that has a wireless connection. The systems include media boxes like Apple TV and Tivo, smart TVs, thermostats, garage door openers and anything else connected to the internet.

For electronics that are without built-in smarts, Ube makes smart plugs fitted with microprocessors that can be plugged into standard outlets, as well as a multi-touch light switch dimmer.

Ube connects to any device that has an IP address, New Scientist reported.

The Ube app can give information about what temperature the thermostat is currently set to or what channel the TV is on.

The outlets and app can also collect information about how much energy each device, room or system is using, and sends push notifications to offer suggestions on how you can cut energy consumption.

The app will be free, while the dimmer will retail for 60 dollars and the outlet and plug for 55 dollars each.

The device, which won the People's Choice Award, was launched this week at the DEMO conference in Santa Clara, California.
