Former Apple Computer and National Semiconductor CEO Helps Shape Future of Company 

March 30, 2006

IRVINE, Calif. -  Exceptional Innovation, makers of Life|ware, hardware-friendly home control software, today announced all Insteon™-enabled products are now compatible with a Life|Ware home control solution. Insteon is the wireless home control technology developed by SmartLabs Inc. the world’s leading authority in home automation and control. 

“Making Insteon products compatible with Life|ware makes perfect sense,” said Mike Seamons, Exceptional Innovation’s Vice President of Marketing. “They’re very popular with our dealers and provide another great option for a Life|ware whole-home control solution.” 

Life|ware is seamlessly integrated into Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. Using the same Media Center remote they use to access and enjoy their music, movies and photographs, a Life|ware user can now easily control their entire Insteon home control system – including lighting, security, comfort control, consumer electronics, appliances and safety sensors from all manufacturers integrating the Insteon technology. Life|ware integration includes all Insteon products from SmartLabs Design including SwitchLinc, KeypadLinc, SignaLinc, LampLinc ApplianceLinc and ControLinc as well as its ICON line of dimmers and switches. 

"We are continuing to drive Insteon home automation and control into the digital home,” said Rajeev Kapur, president of SmartLabs Inc. "By partnering with Life|ware, we can now offer any company looking for a way to manage home control via the Media Center an elegant solution."

“Life|ware brings a rich control experience together with digital entertainment in a compelling way, and we’re pleased to have Insteon products be part of that experience,” said Seamons. 

Life|ware leverages Web Services for Devices standards to be hardware-neutral, an approach that allows dealers to offer their customers more choices among available systems, and gives them the flexibility to create unique new offerings to expand their business.
