CentraLite's Elegance system is designed for medium to large houses, while LiteJet, the newest addition to the family, is for homes under 2,500 square feet, apartments and condominiums.

September 23, 2004 Indianapolis - As Hurricane Ivan approached the Gulf Coast, CentraLite Systems, Inc. stormed CEDIA attendees with its family of affordable lighting control systems - EleganceTM and LiteJetTM. We are pleased to announce that we survived Ivan!

CentraLite's Elegance system is designed for medium to large houses, while LiteJet, the newest addition to the family, is for homes under 2,500 square feet, apartments and condominiums. Both systems offer convenient features that add charm and personality to every room in the home.

LiteJet provides the most affordable hard -wired lighting control system on the market today. It has all the features and functionality of systems designed for large luxury homes at a fraction of the cost. The system controls 24 lighting loads, and includes Touch Panel programming with LCD readout, choice of two keypad styles, over 500 dimming levels, 41 scenes, simple CAT5 wiring, and RS -232 ports for easy 3rd party integration. Optional features include key chain remote, fan speed control, low voltage output relays, custom engraving, and expandable to 48 loads. Finally, lighting control for everyone with LiteJet!

Elegance is a feature -rich system that controls up to 192 loads, over 2,000 dim levels, and unlimited scenes allowing the end -user to create the right mood and atmosphere for any occasion. The standard real -time astronomical clock has 64 timed events expandable to 256. You will never enter a dark house or run through turning lights off before leaving with the standard key chain remote. The Elegance system provides added security features such as Alarm Flash, Vacation Mode, and All On, and is designed to be a powerful, yet affordable, lighting control system. Easily incorporated into other home automation systems, Elegance is truly designed with the future in mind.

President and CEO James L. Busby commented that while Elegance targets larger homes, the LiteJet will bring lighting control to the masses. "Lighting control is no longer for the wealthy. Everyone can now enjoy the comfort and convenience of a feature -packed lighting control system."
