FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 28, 2006


Bedford, NH - A new version of the award winning HomeSeer Home Automation Software was released today by HomeSeer Technologies LLC. HomeSeer 2.1 builds on the power and flexibility of 2.0 (released last year) and offers even greater reliability. The new version is the first software of its kind written entirely in Microsoft's .NET 2.0 framework. It is the only program of its type to offer remote internet -based voice recognition, text -to -speech and audio capabilities. HomeSeer 2.1 is designed to integrate and control lighting, appliances, security, HVAC, home theater and other common home systems.

HomeSeer 2.1 may be easily installed by any homeowner and then controlled using voice, telephone, touchscreens, wall controllers, handheld remotes and even PocketPCs or PDAs. As with version 2.0, HomeSeer 2.1 also supports ASP.NET, which allows users to easily create their own control interfaces. The web interface also supports screen readers, offering accessibility for those who are sight -impaired.

"Home 'Control' and 'Automation' are often considered to be the same thing." states Mark Colegrove, sales director for HomeSeer, "However, most other systems offer little more than centralized 'manual' control of the home. HomeSeer starts with centralized control but then adds true automation to the equation!"

HomeSeer 2.1 supports many popular automation technologies and companies such as
Z -Wave, INSTEON, UPB, Lutron (HomeWorks and RadioRA), Leviton, Intermatic, HAI, DSC and hundreds more. Additional support for professional -grade distributed audio systems from Russound and hardwired lighting systems from Centralite and Vantage is planned for later this year.

A professional version of the software, designed for installers and integrators, is also available. Contact HomeSeer for details.

HomeSeer 2.1 is shipping now.
