ThinkFlood and Wave Electronics Partner to Sell RedEye Remotes for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch in South-Central US

WALTHAM, MA and HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - April 27, 2010) -  ThinkFlood (http://thinkflood.com/), maker of RedEye remotes for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, and WAVE Electronics (http://www.wave-electronics.com/), the leading custom installation supplier for Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi, today announced a strategic distribution partnership to address consumer and reseller demand for RedEye remotes in the US.

WAVE Electronics is the first US distributor of ThinkFlood's RedEye remotes, products that turn the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch into networked universal remotes, offering 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 signals -- TVs, DVRs, cable and satellite receivers, DVD and Blu-ray players, game consoles, stereos, and more.

WAVE is one of the largest, fastest growing independent consumer electronics distributors in the US, offering 8,000 SKUs from over 150 A/V and custom installation manufacturers.

"Last week we set up a RedEye remote at WAVE's new facility in Houston," said Gary Wermuth, President of WAVE Electronics. "During that hour while we were configuring the RedEye system in our showroom, we sold six RedEye units to dealers who stopped by for other business. It was incredible!"

"WAVE is a one-stop shop with five, large distribution centers, and top notch services for independent CI dealers, like model homes and showrooms for sales presentations, product training, and dealer financing," said ThinkFlood founder and Vice President of Operations Adam Shapiro. "We think this is a great opportunity to work together in opening a new category of home control in the south-central US." 

Wave Electronics offers products from Aprilaire, ELAN Home Systems, Jamo, JVC, Middle Atlantic, Mitsubishi, NuVo, OmniMount, Onkyo, Panasonic, Pioneer, Polk Audio, RedEye, Samsung, Sony, TiVo, Tripp Lite, Ultralink, VITEK, Xantech, and more. 

RedEye remotes will be on exhibit at the grand opening of Wave Electronics' new super facility in Houston on May 19. For more information about the event, visit http://www.wave-electronics.com/.
