Albuquerque, NM, February 9th 2004 - Lennar Homes (NYSE: LEN), a Top 5 Homebuilder in the US, has chosen to standardize the empower System by Smart Systems Technologies in its subsidiary Greystone Homes subdivision, Platinum at Robinson Ranch, in the Los Angeles metro area.


`Greystone Homes understands the importance of integrating technology into their popular `Everything`s Included` program,` states Brian Cuda, President of Cuda Electronics, Inc., `the benefits delivered by the empower System allow us to take standard feature technologies and conveniences in a new home to the next level.`

`Everything`s Included` by the Lennar Family of Builders is a simple concept. It is a process, which enables Lennar to provide homeowners with the best possible features included as a standard at the best possible price. Lennar researches what homeowners desire most and include these features as standard items, offering greater purchasing power without charging the homeowner more for a host of optional items.

The empower System offers three key benefits to homeowners over other non -integrated home technologies: Safety, Energy & Lifestyle. Safety features include a built -in security system, reactive lighting control, automatic deactivation of appliances, and immediate shut down of the ventilation system in the event of a fire. Energy features include monitoring and management capabilities that allow homeowners to make informed decisions, budget utility usage and save money. Lifestyle benefits relate to comfort, control and convenience; including mood and entertainment lighting control, remote access to the system, audio control and custom scenes.
