HOME AUTOMATION INC (HAI) ADDS LUXUL WIRELESS AS CONNECTIVITY PARTNER

Luxul's Pro -WAV Solutions Enhance Performance of OmniTouch Portable Touchscreen and Other Wireless Devices inside an HAI automated home

New Orleans, LA - September 11, 2009 - Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security and home automation products since 1985, announced a technical Connectivity Partnership with Luxul Wireless, manufacturer of Pro -WAVTM high performance wireless connectivity solutions for whole home wireless network coverage. Pro -WAV products are designed to efficiently extend the coverage area and improve overall network performance in large homes, enabling a single access point to provide complete "whole home" 802.11 Wi -Fi coverage.

"The Connectivity Partnership between Luxul Wireless and HAI helps deliver significant advantages in terms of the range and connectivity of mobile devices on a wireless network," explains HAI Director of Technical Services, Scott Dudoussat. "With Pro -WAV, a single access point can now provide seamless wireless coverage in situations that previously required 3 or 4 access points."

Using Luxul's high -performance Pro -WAV solutions, HAI dealers and integrators can now easily extend the wireless network by up to 400%, while maintaining high data rates. This allows for the delivery of whole -home Wi -Fi coverage using a single wireless access point (WAP) in installations where traditionally an average of 3 or more WAPs has been required. A single WAP can provide network access for the entire home, garage, outbuildings, and even the yard, without the hassle and expense of adding more access points. This allows for considerable savings in equipment and installation time, while also providing significant technical and functional benefits. Extending the reach of a single access point enables HAI home automation wireless network devices to roam through the entire home seamlessly. Luxul's Pro -WAV is ideal for use with HAI's OmniTouch 10p Portable Touchscreen, Philips Pronto remote controls, and other mobile devices running Snap -Link, Snap -Link Mobile, and WL3.
Luxul Wireless Pro -WAV products are engineered and packaged for ease -of -implementation and integration, making them virtually maintenance free. Pro -WAV solutions implement patented digital signal boosting technologies along with an advanced circular polarization signal technology called Clear -WAVTM. Together, these technologies deliver increased signal penetration, range and clarity ─ easily outperforming traditional signal technologies.

"Pro -WAV delivers a nice complement to the HAI line of wireless network devices," said Jeffrey Curtis, president of Luxul Wireless. "Our mutual customers will be well served by the Connectivity Partnership. We're excited to be working with HAI to integrate Luxul technologies."

HAI products are available through a worldwide network of distributors and installing dealers in over 80 countries. For more information on HAI, please visit www.homeauto.com or email marketing@homeauto.com.
