PROTECT YOUR HOME AGAINST WINTER CHILL: SAVE ENERGY, INCREASE COMFORT, ENHANCE SECURITY

 PROTECT YOUR HOME AGAINST WINTER CHILL:
 SAVE ENERGY, INCREASE COMFORT, ENHANCE SECURITY
 MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- As temperatures fall and the days grow shorter, there's an easy way to keep your home comfortable, secure and energy efficient. Installing a home automation system will put home control at your fingertips and provide peace of mind as winter approaches.
 With the TotalHome system from Honeywell, you won't have to come home to a cold, dark house. TotalHome will greet you with a well-lit, comfortable home and create an indoor environment that matches your lifestyle. The system controls a home's temperature, security system, lights and appliances -- all at the touch of a button.
 For instance, when leaving for work, the home owner simply selects the "AT WORK" mode that automatically adjusts the temperature to save energy, turns on lights for a "lived-in" look, shuts off appliances for safety, and arms the security system. By controlling temperature, lights and appliances, TotalHome provides energy savings of up to 30 percent. The system can even be enhanced to guard against freezing pipes.
 Along with falling temperatures and shorter days, winter brings an increase in home burglaries. According to FBI Uniform Crime Reports, home break-ins peak in December as homes are filled with holiday gifts or are left empty by winter vacationers. Electronic alarm systems, such as the security component in TotalHome, provide the best defense and the strongest overall protection against burglars.
 With TotalHome, you can rest assured that your family and possessions are safe whether you're at home or away. To enhance security when the home is empty, TotalHome creates a "lived-in" look by turning on and off lights and appliances randomly. And TotalHome systems are monitored 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by trained professionals.
 TotalHome combines control of home functions into one, easy-to-use system that can be accessed remotely from a touch-tone phone. Each system is totally customized, programmed and installed for the homeowner at an affordable price. A typical installation in a new or existing home -- including temperature control, 10 points of security control, and 10 points of lighting or appliance control -- costs $4,000.
