Is RTI Changing Name to Pro Control?



Through some excellent investigative work, RemoteCentral.com proprieter Daniel Tonks speculates that Remote Technologies Inc. (RTI) is changing its name to Pro Control.

He notes that RTI, a leading provider of universal remote controls for professional installation, is exhibiting at CES 2010. We already knew that.

What we didn't know is that the company is exhibiting in a booth called Pro Control. That's the name of a company that shares the same Shakopee, Minn., address as RTI and the same booth number of RTI.

The CES site lists the exhibitor:

Pro Control

5775 12th Avenue East
Suite 180
Shakopee, MN 55379
United States
Booth: South 2 25213

Company Overview:
Pro Control is an affordable new remote control brand for the professional integrator including handhelds, processors and intuitive software. Offering rock-solid reliability and advanced features like feedback from iPods, A/V receivers, HVAC and lighting; this line is perfect for any home theater.

I would be surprised if RTI changed its name. Perhaps this is a new product line? An entry-level brand?

Nice scoop, Daniel!

It’s not quite a name change. RTI just issued a press release announcing its “new division” called Pro Control.
