SHAKOPEE, MN -June 18, 2008 -Remote Technologies Inc, the leading control systems manufacturer, announced today the release of the new XP -8 Advanced Control Processor. The XP -8 is a high -end remote control processor for automating the operation of electronic systems in homes and office buildings.

"The XP -8 is simply an amazing product offering the user an unprecedented level of control over all the electronic systems and components in their homes," said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "In keeping with RTI's Committed to Custom™ initiative, the XP -8 gives installers limitless programming options, and through an Internet connection, the XP -8 can even be programmed or updated from any off -site computer by the custom installer or by RTI's technical support department."

The XP -8 Remote Control Processor interfaces seamlessly with all RTI remote controls and touch panels, acting as the "brain" behind the expanded RTI control system. Features include an abundance of basic control ports such as infrared, contact closures and power sensors, in addition to providing advanced control interface options such as two -way RS -232, USB and Ethernet interfaces. Internet connectivity allows the convenience of off -site monitoring and control of all systems, lights and security devices.

Its amazingly broad array of control ports and switches includes 2 USB ports, 8 multi -purpose I/O ports, 8 two -way RS -232 ports, 8 sense inputs and one RS -485 communication port for future expansion, as well as 11 front panel buttons for universal control.
