PC SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT KIT

ControlThink Enables Widespread Z -Wave PC Software Development

UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ - November 09, 2005 - Today, Zensys and ControlThink announce the availability of ControlThink's new Z -Wave PC Software Development Kit, the only object -oriented SDK designed for Z -Wave PC software development. This product makes it simple for all PC software developers to integrate Z -Wave technology into their applications - -and to create fully interoperable software that is compliant to the Z -Wave wireless home automation standard.

"ControlThink just made life easier for PC software developers. Their new SDK visibly reduces the effort in writing Z -Wave PC applications by providing a fully object -oriented interface to Z -Wave," said Niels Thybo Johansen, Zensys CTO. "With the ControlThink PC SDK, developers can turn on a light with just one single line of code."

The ControlThink PC SDK consists of the new Intermatic USB Z -Wave controller and the ControlThink Z -Wave programming library for Microsoft .NET -based languages (including C# and VB.NET). It is also available for other platforms. The programming library assures the generation of fully compliant Z -Wave commands and thus largely reduces the Z -Wave Certification effort for developers.

The SDK supports all types of Z -Wave devices including lighting, climate control, garage doors, drapes, security, and many others.

"This new programming library is a powerful tool that allows PC software developers to just plug Z -Wave support into their products," said Mark Walters, Director of Business Development, Leviton Manufacturing and Chairman of the Z -Wave Alliance's Developers' Forum. "This opens new vistas for the home control industry by enabling widespread integration of Z -Wave technology into PC -based applications."

Support, free minor updates, and a developer community are available at www.controlthink.com. The SDK is available for pre -order and download from www.tech -home.com, starting at the introductory price of $49. A complete Z -Wave starter package including the full SDK, the USB gateway, a master controller and two dimming plug -in lamp modules is available at the introductory price of $129.
