HAI's OmniLT Automation Controller Chosen as Standard Equipment for Land Tejas's Legends Ranch Community in Houston, Texas

HAI, the leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985, has announced that its OmniLT integrated security and automation controller has been mandated as standard equipment in all Legends Ranch Community homes by Texas developer, Land Tejas.

Responding to the needs of today`s homeowner, Land Tejas has introduced master -planned communities with villages, lakes and guard -gated neighborhoods, each with its own recreational facilities and advanced in -home technologies. Legends Ranch is a 450 -acre Canyon Gate® community located north of Houston. Construction of the 1,000 Legends Ranch homes began in the summer of 2003 by such builders as Brighton Homes, First Texas Homes, Legacy Homes, and Pulte Homes and will be priced from the low $100,000 range.

`At Land Tejas, we`ve always been 'thinking ahead' by installing structured wiring and networking in all our new homes," explains Al Brende, Land Tejas's co -founder and principal. "HAI`s security and automation systems are a perfect fit for our customers so we used our volume buying power to get the best home automation installed at the best price for our buyers.`
