ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL - August 17, 2005 - Digital Innovations is offering inventors of consumer electronics accessories and peripherals the opportunity to take their products to the worldwide market by sponsoring the first annual D.O.C. Awards for Design, Originality, and Creativity. The competition's $25,000 worth of prizes include the opportunity for an exclusive worldwide licensing agreement with Digital Innovations, cash awards, and an all -expenses paid trip to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Winners will be announced at the show on January 5, 2006.

Eligible products are accessories and peripherals that improve or extend the functionality of audio, video, gaming, mobile, computer, photo imaging, or personal security products. Entries should be tangible, beneficial, unique, and oriented to consumers. Entries will be judged on their innovation and originality, ability to enhance or optimize users' lives, and manufacturability and marketability.

"Cash prizes are always an incentive, but most inventors are really motivated by the dream of taking their concept to market. This competition offers both," said Rick Mazursky, CEO of Digital Innovations. "Given our established relationships with retailers like Best Buy and Circuit City, the right product may not only gain wide distribution but also earn substantial royalties that can help fund the winner's next invention."

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
