CHANHASSEN, MN - February 15, 2004 - Installers of custom home entertainment systems outside of the United States recently gained some high -tech options for simplifying control of complex home theaters. Remote Technologies Inc. (RTI), an award -winning producer of whole -house electronic control systems, signed agreements with distributors of home technology in Canada and Switzerland. RTI selected Canadian distributor Sound Developments and Swiss distributor Arocom to deliver its universal remotes and control accessories to installers creating sophisticated systems such as home theaters, whole -house music & video, automated lighting, and more.




"RTI is proud to offer its line of home entertainment system control technology to custom installers in Canada and Switzerland," said Pete Baker, director of sales and marketing at RTI. "RTI products give installers the flexibility to build systems with virtually any high -end audio & video components they choose, and to make controlling the entire system a breeze. We think dealers and their customers are going to be thrilled with the performance and value that our remote and complete control systems provide."



Remote Technologies Inc. has focused on bringing custom installers innovative control solutions for electronic entertainment systems since 1992.

RTI also produces a full line of accessories, such as a remote signal processor, and power - & signal -sensing modules that extend a single remote control's coverage to nearly every system throughout a home.



RTI's newest developments include innovations such as the K4 in -wall control touchpanel.

The company's T3 Universal System Controller is the newest handheld remote that combines a large 3.5" touchscreen with a balanced set of programmable hard buttons that make it completely customizable for any homeowner's preferences. And taking the advanced control concept to completely new depths, RTI now makes its capabilities available in pools, jacuzzis, and decks with the U1 Underwater Controller.
