New System Brings Command of Intellicontrol® ICS Distributed Audio/Video System And Home Automation Together on Single Touchscreen Interface

MIAMI, FLORIDA - August 1, 2008 - Niles Audio Corporation, The First Name in Custom Installation®, today announced that the iRemote® TS, an easy -to -use system control remote with color touch screen, is now shipping. The iRemote TS is an elegant user interface for operating the award -winning IntelliControl® ICS whole house distributed audio/video system and automating sophisticated home theater systems. It employs reliable ZigBee® 2 -way wireless technology to provide users with all the necessary metadata to scan, select and play program material from menu -based digital sources, like iPods®, music servers, HD Radio™, XM® and Sirius® satellite radio, from their whole house audio/video system. It also integrates with Niles HT -MSU home theater main system unit to manage all components in a home theater system including television, home theater receiver and up to 14 additional sources like digital video recorders, DVD players and cable/satellite receivers with the single press of its touch screen interface. With the Niles iRemote TS, custom installation professionals can now offer their clients unified operation of virtually every audio/video component in their home from one elegant and intuitive user interface.

"The combination of the iRemote TS, HT -MSU and Intellicontrol ICS make a powerful addition to the integrators' tool kit," said Frank Sterns, president of Niles. "With the introduction of the iRemote TS, it is now possible for Intellicontrol ICS customers to control their entire distributed audio/video system and home theater from a single color touch screen remote. The result is a completely integrated audio/video and home theater control solution," added Sterns.

The iRemote TS controls the IntelliControl ICS system and the HT -MSU via reliable ZigBee radio commands. Additionally, it can control non -ZigBee equipped devices via infrared commands which it stores and transmits in sequence to local components such as flat panel televisions, lighting control systems, motorized shades, etc. While the iRemote TS performs complicated control tasks, it is simple to set up and install.

The system is quickly and easily configured using Niles' IntelliFile® 3 wizard -based software. During system configuration, the integrator answers a series of logical questions, after which the iRemote, IntelliControl ICS whole house system and the HT -MSU home theater main system unit are automatically configured.

The iRemote TS is now available through authorized Niles dealers at a MSRP of $1,299.95. Like all Niles products, the iRemote TS comes with Niles new Limited Lifetime Warranty.
