IntelliNet Controls Launches Enhanced AquaPad

Wireless web portal provides power and access for award-winning RS3000

CEDIA EXPO, Indianapolis, IN, September 5, 2003 - IntelliNet Controls, a leading innovator of multi -room audio distribution systems, today announced the addition of an important new product for their IP -based system - - the IntelliNet Controls enhanced (ICe) AquaPad. The ICe AquaPad is a wireless color touch screen that utilizes proprietary software technology to deliver all the power of the web, wherever the user happens to be. Along with control of the company's award -winning RS3000 system, the ICe AquaPad also delivers the potential for web access and web email, making it an exceptional product compared to comparable system control devices.

The ICe AquaPad provides a wireless portal to the world all with the simplicity of touch screen control. When used with the RS3000, ICe customized software allows the AquaPad to display all of the RS3000 controls in a sleek and intuitive visual environment. The IP -based controls of the RS3000 are always readily available on the ICe AquaPad, allowing the user to conveniently control their entertainment sources. While enjoying all the breadth of information content that the web offers, a single click can return the user to the RS3000 controls.

According to Michael Stein, Vice President of Engineering and Product Development for IntelliNet Controls, "Our new AquaPad provides the end -user all the power of the world wide web with the convenience of a touch screen, from virtually anywhere they like. The key to its outstanding performance lies in our proprietary ICe software which we have named IC enhanced." Mr. Stein, the creator of the company's patented technology, went on to add, "When the ICe AquaPad is used in conjunction with our RS3000, the two deliver a powerful combination unsurpassed by any other web enabled device anywhere near its price point."

At $1749 (MSRP), far less than dedicated "system" touch screens, the end -user now gets a wireless touch screen that controls the RS3000 and can integrate browser -based security systems, lighting controllers, HVAC systems and of course allows the user to surf the web too. The ICe AquaPad is a rugged yet lightweight design with a high -resolution 8.4" color touch screen that is supplied with its own charging display cradle. The new ICe AquaPad is another modular link in the IntelliNet Controls system chain and the perfect complement to the innovative RS3000 system.

The IC enhanced Aqua Pad is available now to order and will be shipping in September 2003.
The product will be supplied with the company's proprietary ICe software, state of the art Mozilla™ Firebird web browser, 802.11b networking card and charging cradle all for a MSRP of $1749. As with all IntelliNet Controls products, the ICe AquaPad is available exclusively through approved IntelliNet Controls Dealer Partners. The ICe AquaPad will be featured, along with the complete IntelliNet Controls RS3000 system, at the CEDIA Expo September 5 -7 in booth # 403 at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.
