Armour Home Appointed as Exclusive UK Distributor of RedEye Universal Remotes for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad

ThinkFlood's Popular Home Control Products for Smartphones, MP3 Players and Other Web-Enabled Devices Now Available to Retailers and Custom Installers in the UK

WALTHAM, MA and HERTFORDSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) -  ThinkFlood (http://thinkflood.com/), maker of RedEye remotes for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, has announced the appointment of Armour Home (http://www.armourhome.co.uk/) as its exclusive UK distributor.

RedEye products allow the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad to be used as convenient universal remote controls, offering high-end functionality at a very affordable price. Users can operate any equipment controlled via infrared signals: televisions, set top boxes, DVD and Blu-ray players, home cinema receivers, game consoles and more.

Commenting on the appointment, ThinkFlood Vice President of Sales Phil Davis said: "With an outstanding reputation, and a customer list that includes leading custom installers as well and retailers like Argos, Asda, Comet, Harrods, John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and Tesco, our decision to appoint Armour Home as RedEye's exclusive UK distributor was the easiest we've ever made."

Glenn McClelland, Armour's Managing Director, added: "Everyone at Armour Home is very excited about the prospect of distributing these new RedEye models because they're so obviously brilliant, well thought out products, with absolutely huge market potential."

The RedEye application, which powers both RedEye products, is a free download from the App Store.

RedEye mini hardware is priced at £49.95 (including VAT). The mini simply plugs into the headphone socket of the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, and requires no batteries.

The original RedEye, with multiple user and multi-room ability, costs £199.90 (including VAT) and includes a charging dock, which connects to your home Wi-Fi network.

ThinkFlood's RedEye remote line will be launched at Armour Home's 2010 Road Shows (http://www.armourhome.co.uk/xhtml/misc/roadshow.htm). This year's tour (September 13-October 12) will visit Falkirk, Dublin, Bristol, Bishop's Stortford and Manchester.
