be a connected home platform that consumers can install and manage themselves. The system is powered by the company's OpenHome software platform and is offered as a smart home solution for broadband service providers.

Touchstone provides home monitoring, comfort control, appliance and home automation, and energy management. Because it can be assembled and installed by the end-user, it eliminates the need for a professionally trained technician.

The system will be initially deployed across the United States by Comcast as Xfinity Home Control.

The system allows homeowners to:
* See what's happening in their homes with live and event-driven video capture via in-home cameras.
* Remotely control and manage homes, with the ability to turn on/off lights and appliances and adjust thermostats via the web or mobile applications.
* Customize their systems by scheduling personalized, automated alerts.

"Consumers are becoming more comfortable with connected devices, so a self-installable, smart home product and Cloud platform is a natural extension to the interactive home security solutions we are deploying today," said Jim Johnson, executive vice president and general manager of iControl's Austin Division. "This is a product that can be sold on store shelves or shipped to homes, and can be easily upgraded to a professionally monitored security solution, which will ultimately increase consumer access to the next generation smart home."
