New Orleans, LA – February 7, 2007

HAI, the leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985, is now offering their award-winning Internet access and control software Snap-Link for the Ultra Mobile PC platform putting wireless home control in the palm of your hand.

Snap-Link is software on a USB flash drive that plugs into any Windows(TM) computer (Windows 98SE(TM) or higher – including Vista(TM)). Snap-Link communicates through an encrypted Ethernet connection directly to a HAI home control system. It gives homeowners the ability to monitor and control lighting, security, temperatures, webcams, whole home audio, and more. Snap-Link is secure, very easy to use, requires no installation and no dedicated PC or server at the home. With the new enhancements Snap-Link can now be used on an Ultra Mobile PC anywhere in the home as a wireless touch screen.

"Snap-Link is a very convenient and versatile interface for homeowners and therefore a powerful selling tool for builders trying to differentiate themselves from the competition," explains HAI President Jay McLellan. "With the new enhancements a homeowner can plug Snap-Link into a handheld device such as the Ultra Mobile PC and have touchscreen access on a fully functioning PC that can be carried around the house."
