HOUSTON, July 17, 2007 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- Home Media Professionals' (www.homemediapros.com) customers report bottom line savings on their energy bill after installing basic components of home automation, and by taking control over their electricity usage pattern.

"Home Media Pro's installed INSTEON dimmers and timers linked to our computer, then configured our whole facility to work in tune with our activities," says Marina Amos, Vice President of Operations in Multi National Community Center of Houston. "We saved about 18 percent from the previous month's bill, a savings of approximately $320 dollars. It has been consistent now for several months."

By installing the INSTEON-enabled lighting automation controls from SmartLabs that replace current switches and outlets, customers are able to instruct the system to only turn on necessary lights and outlets that are in tune with family's current activity. Once the system is implemented, our customers report significant decrease in their electricity consumption. The same methodology is applied to other appliances such as Air Conditioning, Sprinkler System, Outside Lights and Pool Equipment. All combined saves hundreds of dollars in energy costs.

"Our customers enjoy the benefits of automated homes and experience real savings on their electric bills," says Steven Romero, Home Media Professionals Houston area Manager. "We are expanding to add more installation teams to handle overwhelming demand for home automation products."
