New Orleans, LA - September 14th, 2010

HAI Intercom with No Extra Cost for Existing OmniTouch 5.7e Touchscreen Owners, Free with Purchase of New OmniTouch 5.7e Touchscreen

HAI will demonstrate the Intercom at CEDIA to be held in Atlanta, GA, September 23 -26, 2010, in Booth 4046. An HAI New Products seminar will be held on 9/24 from 2:00 - 3:00 in Room 1408 of the Georgia World Congress Center.

Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security and home automation products since 1985, announced that VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) intercom is being added to the OmniTouch 5.7e Touchscreens and is expected to be available in October. Intercom functionality for OmniTouch 10pe Portable Touchscreens and OmniTouchPro interface software for third -party Windows Touchscreens is expected to be available in Q4 2010.

The VoIP Intercom is point -to -point from one OmniTouch 5.7e Touchscreen to another. Existing homeowners with OmniTouch 5.7e Touchscreens can add Touchscreen -to -Touchscreen intercom functionality with a free firmware update. New OmniTouch 5.7e Touchscreens will ship with this attribute.

Dealers can associate supported surveillance cameras with any intercom station, allowing homeowners to both speak with and see their guest. The intercom features manual accept/reject options, but also possesses the ability to auto -answer. To ensure privacy, the intercom features a do -not -disturb mode.

Local settings at each OmniTouch 5.7e control intercom volume levels (for both voice levels and ring levels) as well as privacy options (auto -answer, do not disturb, and mute). The screen will notify the homeowner where the message originated (front door, guest bedroom, etc).

"HAI is pleased to implement VoIP intercom in the OmniTouch 5.7e," explained HAI President, Jay McLellan. "This additional product feature has an impressive response time and a clear image when integrated with a camera."

HAI products are available through a worldwide network of Distributors and installing Dealers in over 80 countries. For more information, please visit HAI's website, www.homeauto.com or email marketing@homeauto.com.
