RTI Offers Two-Way Driver for Denon HEOS Audio Systems

New Driver Allows Intuitive Control of Denon HEOS Multi-Room Audio Systems Directly From RTI Interfaces

SHAKOPEE, Minn. - Feb. 3, 2015 - Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced the availability of a new two-way driver for use with the Denon HEOS family of products. Free of charge to RTI dealers, the driver provides integrators and end users with an incredibly powerful solution for browsing online streaming or local music as well as adjusting audio settings on up to 16 media players from a single page of an RTI user interface.


Developed by RTI, the two-way driver for Denon HEOS allows installers to implement the new solution easily without any licensing or instance expenses, resulting in a powerful, cost-effective innovation for today's multi-room audio installations. With control of up to 16 media players on a single screen, the driver readily scales to fit the scope of larger-sized installations. Further advantages include a large selection of streaming music services with full browsing capabilities, music player grouping on-the-fly, and the ability to listen to external audio sources such as smartphones, tablets, or a PC music library on any player.

"Consumers are increasingly looking to take advantage of streaming music in every room of their homes," said Scott Kelley, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. "To help our dealers meet this demand, we worked closely with the Denon team to develop a robust two-way driver that integrates the incredible Denon HEOS audio system into the RTI control platform. We are extremely happy to provide our dealer base with this simple, convenient solution for incorporating multi-room audio into our home automation systems."

"RTI's powerful solutions easily integrate our HEOS audio system into the greater automation ecosystem," said Paul Belanger, product manager, Denon. "Supporting full browsing for today's streaming music services, the new two-way driver provides our mutual customers with a seamless listening experience available in any area of the house. We are pleased to collaborate with RTI on developing this innovation."

The two-way driver for Denon HEOS is available now on RTI's website at www.rticorp.com in the Driver Store.

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.
