HAI will demonstrate the new Pronto Link languages in Booth 728 at the Expo Seguridad in Mexico City, Mexico, April 21 -23, 2009.

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 Latin American Spanish, Portuguese and German 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 editions of HAI's Pronto Link software include Italian, French, Chinese, Russian, and Hebrew in addition to the English and English demo version.

HAI will demonstrate the new Latin American Spanish and Portuguese versions during its "Introduction to Home Automation" Spanish language trainings to be held April 24th, 2009 in conjunction with the Expo Seguridad show in Mexico City, Mexico. Additionally, HAI will be demonstrating the new language versions of Pronto Link and its' award -winning security products at Expo Seguridad in Booth 728, April 21 -23, 2009.

"HAI is happy to be releasing these additional languages in conjunction with Expo Seguridad", explains HAI Mexico, Central America & South America Sales Manager, Jeram Correa. "This really helps our International dealers who desire language -specific HAI interfaces. The Pronto Link additions show our continued support for the international market."

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 so an installer can easily merge the HAI functionality into a standard ProntoScript 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.
