Waltham, MA and Simi Valley, CA - June 2, 2010 - ThinkFlood (, maker of RedEye remotes for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, and Volutone Distributing Company (, the leading home electronics supplier for California, Nevada and Hawaii, today announced a strategic distribution partnership to address consumer and reseller demand for RedEye remotes in the US.

ThinkFlood selected Volutone as a regional distributor for RedEye remotes because it has more than 3,000 integrators, custom installers and dealers across the western United States -and because the company is known for its focus on what's new, cutting edge, and how to use and apply it.

RedEye products turn the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch into networked 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.

"People are looking for ways to integrate the multitude of electronics we have all come to depend on," said Trevor Hansen, CEO of Volutone Distributing Company. "The timing is perfect for the arrival of ThinkFlood's RedEye remotes -beyond the obvious cool factor, utilizing an iPhone is a simple and economical way to control your A/V system."

"As networked products like RedEye become the standard for home control, integrators naturally have a lot of questions about how everything fits together," said ThinkFlood founder and Vice President of Operations Adam Shapiro. "Thankfully Volutone is industry -renowned for product training seminars and a commitment to continuing education for dealers. There's a reason they've been in business for more than 100 years."
