HAI Adds to Philips ProntoScript Module Library with New Versions of Pronto Link in Italian and French

Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security and home automation products since 1985, announced today that Pronto Link, a ProntoScript integration module for the Philips TSU9400, TSU9600 and TSU9800 Pronto remotes, is now available in Italian and French language versions as a free download.

Pronto Link allows integration with Ethernet -enabled HAI Omni and Lumina family controllers and the Philips Pronto remotes. Current foreign language versions of HAI's Pronto Link software include Chinese, Russian, and Hebrew in addition to the English and English demo version.

HAI will demonstrate the new Italian and French versions, along with a Dutch language demo during its "Introduction to Home Automation" trainings to be held February 5, 2009 in conjunction with the ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) show in Amsterdam.

"HAI is expanding its International business in 2009 with a new business plan and products", explains HAI International Sales Director, Thomas Pickral Jr. "We will have Pronto Link versions coming out in many other languages including Arabic, Greek, German, Spanish and Dutch to name a few, as well as multi -language Touchscreens and software."

Pronto Link allows a homeowner to use a single remote to control his home theater; adjust lights, temperatures, and security settings; and control multi -room audio systems, such as the Hi -Fi by HAI system. Screens are preprogrammed in Pronto Link so an installer can easily merge the HAI functionality into a standard Pronto project. Pronto Link uses secure, encrypted Wi -Fi to exchange commands with the HAI controller.

Pronto Link is a free download from the ProntoScript for Philips Certified Installers portion of the Philips Pronto website, www.pronto.philips.com/prontoscript or at HAI's Knowledge Base support site. Login is required to download the file. A demo version of Pronto Link is available to simulate interaction with an HAI controller for sales purposes.

HAI products are available through a worldwide network of Distributors and installing dealers in over 80 countries. For more information on HAI's Pronto Link or HAI's free "Introduction to Home Automation" training classes to be held in Amsterdam, please visit www.homeauto.com or email marketing@homeauto.com.
