The Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA) awarded HAI with its Chairman's Pinnacle Award for Outstanding Company, recognizing HAI as the year's most innovative and progressive leader in the connected home sector.

The awards were chosen by an independent panel of industry judges from a wide roster of nominees, and announced at CABA's 2005 Connected@Home Conference & Expo.

"The award winners represented a brilliant group of professionals who have taken immense steps in furthering the industry," stated Ronald J. Zimmer, CABA President & CEO. "They each have listened to market demands and developed a wide array of technologies to deliver what can certainly be considered state -of -the -art products and services. These award winners were very difficult to narrow down, but all represent highly successful industry visionaries. This sends a strong message to our industry that the connected home is not only becoming a reality but a norm."

Jay McLellan, HAI President, replies: "HAI is honored to receive this recognition of our work over the last two decades. All of us at HAI are passionate about connected homes and growing the industry with great products and ideas."
