/24-7PressRelease/ - WESTFORD, MA, March 14, 2006 - Cutting Edge Systems Corporation, a leading provider of home automation solutions in Massachusetts, today announced the introduction of HomePort Suite, an affordable, residential music and lighting control system developed to enhance the value of luxury homes that measure up to 5,000 square feet. These new products were engineered specifically to assist builders in differentiating the features built into their homes.
Included in HomePort Suite is a new version of the acclaimed HomePort Technology Software that enables control of the music and lighting in a home from any web browser on the home network. In addition to standard functionality, such as turning the system on or changing a radio station, HomePort allows users to easily create scenes that incorporate both music and lighting features to work in concert with each other. Scenes can be initiated from wall mounted touch panels around the house or scheduled to start automatically at a pre-selected time on a daily or weekly basis.
The HomePort Suite package includes a high quality music system for 4 rooms, AM/FM and XM radio plus an auxiliary input, two 4.5" color touchscreens, 2 music keypads, 12 controlled lighting dimmers or switches, HomePort Software and wiring for 2 additional rooms of music. The standard package is expandable with a number of options including adding rooms of music, control devices and an iPod dock that is fully integrated with the system.
A very economical starter package dubbed HomePort Solo offers a single zone of music and 4 lighting loads that can be expanded to a full HomePort Suite package by the homeowner at a later date.
The development process for this product has taken into account over a decade of feedback from homeowners, architects and builders regarding how they want to use and control lights and music in their homes.
