Waltham, MA and Raleigh, NC - June 15, 2010 - ThinkFlood (http://thinkflood.com/), maker of RedEye remotes for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, and 21st Century Distributing (http://www.21stcenturydist.com/), the leading AV electronics and custom installation supplier for North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Tennessee, today announced a strategic distribution partnership to address consumer and reseller demand for RedEye remotes in the US.


ThinkFlood selected 21st Century Distributing as a regional distributor for RedEye remotes because the company is committed to providing superior customer service, high -quality products, and competitive pricing to all of its installers, integrators and dealers.

RedEye products turn the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad into neworked universal remotes that offer high -end functionality at an affordable price. Using an Apple iDevice instead of a traditional remote, RedEye and RedEye mini users can operate anything controlled by infrared: TVs, DVRs, cable and satellite receivers, DVD and Blu - ray players, game consoles, stereos, and more.

"ThinkFlood's networked universal remotes -RedEye remotes -represent a fundamental shift in how we control our home electronics," said Donald Vicini, President of 21st Century Distributing. "We're witnessing a move away from dedicated remote control hardware and a move towards Internet connectivity. This is the future, and we're pleased to share it with our dealers."

"21st Century Distributing has strong, longstanding relationships with dealers and custom installers across the southeast," said Adam Shapiro, ThinkFlood Founder and Vice President of Operations. "We can't wait to show 21st Century's network of dealers and installers how they can expand their customer base by offering truly affordable, high -performance home control."

ELK Products -C1M1 Dual-Path Alarm Communicators with Remote Services

C1M1 offers a truly significant reduction in transmission time in comparison to other communicators that rely on dial capture or data bus decoding. This can result in quicker response time to emergency situations which could save lives and assets. By providing both IP and cellular pathways, C1M1 provides the reliability installers are looking for in an alarm communicator. C1M1 eliminates port forwarding and extra fees for remote access. Installers can remotely upload/download programming changes to M1 controls over IP or cellular using ElkRP2. Consumers can control the M1 remotely via the free ElkLink mobile app and web portal, as well as eKeypad and M1 Touch Pro apps. Other IP-based software and interface partners can connect to the M1 control over the local network through C1M1. C1M1 also provides email/text notifications for arm, disarm, and alarm events. ELK-C1M14GSM supports GSM (AT&T/T-Mobile) networks and ELK-C1M1CDMA supports CDMA (Verizon) networks.
