`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.
