Intermatic Makes Finding the Perfect Holiday Gift Simple and Fun

HomeSettings Gadgets Offer Convenience, Security and Safety

Spring Grove, IL - (August 10, 2005) - Buying the perfect holiday gift for friends, family and loved ones can become a challenge, but Intermatic can ease the way with their new wireless HomeSettings home control products. Made with Zensys Z -Wave technology, HomeSettings modules are great for the do -it -yourself consumer looking for dependable, sophisticated home controls without the high price tag.

Intermatic HomeSettings products use Zensys Z -Wave technology to give consumers an easy approach to home controls. If a signal from the remote control to the device cannot directly be received, each product is embedded with a powerful Z -Wave chip that allows signals to bounce from one device to another in order to provide the most efficient working path. A starter kit, which includes a master remote control and two lamp modules, can be purchased for less than $100.

"This holiday season, we want to help consumers find the ultimate holiday present," says Art Noparstak, a home protection and controls expert with Intermatic Inc. and a board member of the non -profit Burglary Prevention Council ( "Whether customers want the convenience of dimming their lights from the comfort of their couch or the security benefits of arriving home to a well -lit property without leaving lights on all day and wasting electricity, Intermatic HomeSettings is a high -performing system that is affordable, incredibly fun and easy -to -install."
