Thinkflood announced the availability of the RedEye personal remote control for iPhone and iPod touch.  The RedEye universial remote control is easy to use, and set up is simple; from it you can control virtually any home entertainment device from any room in your home (see video below).

You can download the RedEye application free of charge from the iTunes App. Store. You place the RedEye base station in the same room as the appliances you want to control.  The RedEye base station communicates wirelessly with your TVs, DVRs, stereos and game console, all done from your iPhone and iPod.

Key Features of the RedEye Remote Control

  • For only $188, RedEye offers benefits that were previously available only in full home automation systems and high-end universal remotes.  Systems that offer similar levels of control require professional installation, technical know-how, or an entire day of frustration. The RedEye base station also doubles as a charging dock.
  • Instead of having one remote for every device -- or even an oversized universal remote with too many buttons -- RedEye customers only need to handle an iPhone or iPod touch.
  • RedEye supports multiple rooms, controllers, and users simultaneously. It controls a virtually unlimited number of devices and can store a virtually unlimited number of commands, far exceeding competitive product offerings.
  • RedEye offers activity-based control, meaning users can program RedEye to execute a series of commands with only one touch. Additionally, only the buttons appropriate to the activity appear on the screen.
  • RedEye users can customize the way they control their equipment with touchscreen buttons, Apple's Multi-Touch gestures, and accelerometer controls. For example swiping two fingers down the screen can reduce volume and flicking the iPhone forward can change the channel.
