Control4® Home Energy Manager Will Provide Consumers Access to Information When and How They Want It So They Can Better Manage Home Energy Consumption

SAN DIEGO, CA – February 3, 2009 – Control4 Corporation, a leader in affordable IP-based control and entertainment systems, today announced a new line of Home Energy Manager products that will use the Control4® Operating System to provide a platform for consumers to connect their home to the Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) being developed by the major utility companies worldwide. Control4 is among the first companies to announce a complete solution for the home area network. The Control4® platform will provide programmable thermostat control, load disconnect measurement and control, and allow consumers the flexibility to add lighting control, pool/spa control, sprinkler control, and other features to their control system. The Control4® Home Energy Manager platform will be available for demonstration at the 2009 DistribuTECH show in San Diego, California (booth #2238).

"The Home Energy Manager platform provides a huge market opportunity for Control4 that will leverage the great strides we’ve made in developing an affordable solution for the home that is easy to install, use, and maintain,” said Will West, Chief Executive Officer at Control4. "We expect increased participation in energy conservation programs by giving consumers more control over the energy management of their home by enabling them to determine when and how they access their home energy use information."

The Control4® Home Energy Manager will provide the utility industry with a practical, reliable and affordable platform for the home. Control4 is among the first companies to offer all of the critical pieces of technology for the home environment including a Home Area Network, an In-Home Display and a Smart Thermostat. The Control4® platform will let utility companies offer customers an intuitive interface that integrates usage analytics with software and hardware solutions for the home and that complements the utility’s load management software. Homeowners enjoy real-time information retrieval regarding their energy usage, greater energy savings and more control over their energy consumption.

The Control4® platform is based on standard technologies such as ZigBee, Wi-Fi and Ethernet to facilitate interoperability and integration between the Control4 platform and leading consumer electronic systems in the home, including temperature control, smart lighting, security, home theater, audio and video applications. The Control4 Home Energy Manager solutions will be deployed in a number of utility pilots in 2009. For additional information about Control4, visit
