Texas based Ube has released a new iPhone and Android app that can control over 200 IP based smart home appliances. The new app according to Ube will supplement and in some case replace the other control devices, such as smart TVs, set top boxes, AV receivers, DVD players, thermostats, garage door openers and more.

Ube communicates with IP enabled devices directly from the smart phone using a standard Wi-Fi router to send commands when the user is at home or over any wireless internet connection when away from home using the Ube Cloud. To extend consumer control into systems that lack an IP connection, the company unveiled three key IP enabled devices. These include an IP based smart dimmer, smart wall outlet and smart plug.
"With Ube, anyone can control systems and devices in their home using a Smartphone, a Wi-Fi Router and the Cloud. Lights, TVs, Set Top Boxes, Thermostats and much more become easily accessible. Ube is the essence of disruptive technology and we're incredibly excited to collaborate with DEMO to unveil our technology and first products", said Utz Baldwin, Co-Founder and CEO of Ube.
