Insteon Included in Best Buy Home Automation Bundle

The lighting control firm's products will be part of a home automation package on offer from the big-box retailer.

Las Vegas, NV–SmartLabs’ INSTEON-enabled lighting control system has been selected for the Best Buy ConnectedLife.Home entertainment and home automation solution recently unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show 2007.

The ConnectedLife.Home package available from Best Buy For Business includes a Hewlett-Packard z560 Digital Entertainment Center, Life|ware digital entertainment and automation software from Exceptional Innovation, an XBox 360, and the INSTEON lighting control system. Other home automation components in the package include security cameras and a thermostat controller.

“This is really the first time that home automation and entertainment have been offered in a ‘box’ by a major retailer,” said Ken Fairbanks, vice president of business development at SmartLabs. “Putting this package together with Best Buy For Business, HP, and Exceptional Innovation is significant for us both from a product standpoint and in terms of market validation of the INSTEON home control networking technology.”

“The INSTEON lighting system is ideal for the ConnectedLife.Home package,” continued Fairbanks. “The exciting thing is that once the system is in, an INSTEON network has been established. A consumer can simply add more INSTEON-enabled products from a variety of manufacturers to enhance the value, comfort and safety of the home.”
