P&S LIGHTSENSE™ SETS THE MOOD FOR ANY ACTIVITY WITH SIMPLICITY

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (Feb. 19, 2008) - Pass & Seymour/Legrand (P&S), a leading manufacturer of electrical wiring devices and home systems, offers a new, sophisticated lighting control system without the hassle. P&S LightSense™ allows homeowners to control lights, select complete lighting scenes for any mood or activity, and operate ceiling fans and small appliances with the touch of a button - from anywhere in the house.

P&S LightSense includes a complete selection of dependable, Decorator style radio -frequency devices and matching hard -wired devices. Wall -mounted and wireless remote scene controllers enable users to choose from up to 15 scenes for a room or area - and up to 11 whole -house scenes. Scenes transition with smooth, elegant fades. The system also allows for instant full -on and full -off control of all lights in any scene. LightSense can manage lighting loads for up to 127 rooms and 1,023 devices, and it's easy to program and operate.

"Unlike other whole -house systems, LightSense makes sophisticated lighting simple, and it's surprisingly affordable," said Mike Piraino, market development manager for P&S. "The contemporary style enhances any décor, and the reliable radio -control operation doesn't require special wiring. This system offers unmatched convenience, safety and value for homeowners."

Power -failure memory restores preset lighting scenes after power outages. LightSense even includes an occupancy emulator option, recording the normal lighting usage throughout the home and playing it back while homeowners are away.

Installation is fast and easy with patented screw -pressure -plate back - and side -wiring.

P&S LightSense radio -frequency wireless devices include Dimmers, Switches, Fan Speed Controls, Master Controls, Plug -In Modules, an Occupancy Emulator, and Interface/Key Fob products. Matching hard -wired Dimmers, Controllers and Switches are also available. Colors include ivory, light almond, white and black.
