Sit back, dim the lights, turn up the heating and put on your favorite film...all with one app.
Homes are getting more connected, with thermostats and locks already linked to the internet in some homes. Now, one U.S. start-up is looking to take advantage of this growing trend with an app that lets you control your whole home from your smartphone.
Peel - which was founded in 2009 and last year received $50 million of funding from Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba - hopes its app can become the remote control for the home.
"In the connected environment, you have to launch one app to turn off the light, one to control the heating, one to check the water sprinklers," Thiru Arunachalam, co-founder and CEO of Peel, told CNBC at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
"I don't know if consumers want a siloed life like that."
