Amsterdam, NL and Jacksonville, OR, USA - January 31, 2012 - (Integrated Systems Europe - Booths #2A70/3 and 11H78; Booth #5T98) Global Cache, the leading independent manufacturer of IP and WiFi connectivity products for the control and automation market, and Opus, a leading British designer and manufacturer of multi-room entertainment and home control systems, announced today they have signed a Value Added Reseller (VAR) agreement allowing Opus to integrate and sell Global Cache products as part of their total audio/video solution.


Global Cache's award-winning products connect almost any electrical device to a WiFi and IP network so it can be controlled, automated, and maintained by network-based software.

Global Cach� products are enabling devices that are designed to work with other standards based products.

Opus has been at the forefront of multi-room entertainment solutions for many years and has been installed in thousands of the world's most prestigious properties and landmark developments. Opus understands that multi-room entertainment is often just one aspect of customers' smart-home solutions. Products also integrate lighting and other complementary technologies into its multi-award winning portfolio of home automation solutions.

"We're excited that Opus is integrating our connectivity products into their control solutions," said Robin Ford, Global Cache VP of Business Development. "Opus is currently providing solutions for single family homes, as well as the largest developments in Dubai. We're pleased that they've chosen to integrate our devices to extend the reach of their excellent control products."

"With Global Cache devices, extended control of AV equipment and automation devices is achieved much more simply and with less disruption to the home owner," said Steven Simpson, Opus GCC Regional Manager. "Installers now have far greater flexibility and retro fit potential, whilst offering excellent value and a new level of control options to end users. Global Cache offer a range of products, which provide control solutions for a host of installation scenarios when running a cable is simply not an option."
