The SkipJam Handheld RF Remote Control and SkipJam In-Wall Touch Panel models iWTP57, iWTP104, iWTP150 integrate with the SkipJam iMedia system, letting users control all devices in their home from any convenient location. The SkipJam RF Remote Control also integrates telephony and paging into the system, providing on-screen caller ID, voice recording, paging and voice messaging.

With SkipJam’s controllers, parents can pause their kids’ video and tell them to come to dinner through the TV speaker … without ever leaving the kitchen. They can automatically mute or lower the volume of all stereos when a phone call comes in, and see who’s calling right on their remote or on their TV or PC screen.

“We’re very excited about the possibilities opened by our remote control system,” said Michael Spilo, CEO of SkipJam. “Having your telephone, media list and remote control in one place is a tremendous leap in convenience and functionality.”

Using the SkipJam iMedia Controllers, users can pick which music to listen to and control any of their home devices without having to be near a TV or computer screen.

The SkipJam iMedia RF Remote Control lets users:
• Control any device in the home
• Make and receive phone calls on the remote
