Article by Vertex Security & Technology
Electronic House Expo ORLANDO, Fla. – March 29, 2006 – The INSTEON Alliance announced today that SUPERNA has joined its growing association of companies adopting the INSTEON wireless home control technology. The INSTEON Alliance consists of more than 700 member companies and developers that are implementing the INSTEON wireless home control technology that leverages the powerline into their consumer electronics devices.
SUPERNA is the first home automation company to fully leverage standard IP home networks, enabling consumers to connect new or legacy electronic devices to their home computer network for delivery of digital audio/visual content, lighting and HVAC control to any room in the house. SUPERNA’s desktop software provides easy configuration, management and personalized interface generation. Its easy-to-use ConfigNet software will support the INSTEON protocol enabling users to create and manage a stand-alone INSTEON network, or have INSTEON products part of its full home control and automation solution.
“Companies such as SUPERNA are seeing the inherent benefits of affordability, reliability and simplicity in our home networking protocol,” says Ken Fairbanks, vice president of sales and business development at SmartLabs Inc., the innovators of INSTEON. “We are pleased that so many companies are integrating INSTEON to make any electronic device part of the home network.”
“We are very excited about joining the INSTEON Alliance. At SUPERNA, we are fully committed to supporting affordable standards-based products which bring more freedom of choice to the customer and will result in broader adoption of home technologies,” says Oded Vardi, SUPERNA’s COO.
The INSTEON Alliance will be hosting its inaugural INSTEON Development and Technology Conference on May 2, 2006 in Santa Clara, Calif. For more information about the INSTEON Alliance and its conference, please visit http://www.insteon.net.

INSTEON delivers a dual-mesh (wireless and powerline) networking technology optimized for home management and control. Simple, affordable and reliable, INSTEON links together core home systems such as lighting, security, comfort control, consumer electronics, appliances and safety sensors for remote monitoring and control. All INSTEON devices are peers, meaning any device can transmit, receive and repeat other messages without requiring a master controller or complex routing software. Adding more devices makes an INSTEON network more powerful by virtue of a simple protocol for communication retransmissions and retries.
