    PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- iControl Networks, a leading
 provider of Web-based solutions to monitor and control your home and
 business, today announced its participation in the "House of Innovation," a
 home built by Sunset and Popular Science magazines in the
 technology-friendly Bay Area that will showcase the future of home building
 and home products.
     "The iControl solution is an obvious choice for the House of Innovation
 because of its compelling value to homeowners," said Shannon Thompson, Home
 Programs Director at Sunset. "Most people don't know that do-it-yourself
 Web- based services that provide 24/7 insight into your home and business
 are available now, affordable and are very easy to use."
     "We view iControl's service as truly ground-breaking," added Popular
 Science editor in chief Mark Jannot. "Beyond monitoring your home and
 business, iControl's service can also be used for property management, real
 estate sales and energy management."
     iControl's secure online service dramatically improves one's lifestyle
 by providing an entirely new way to see, know and respond remotely to one's
 "life assets" -- their family, home and business -- from anywhere at
 anytime. Every user has a personal portal that they access through a Web
 browser on a PC, PDA or cell phone to configure and manage their iControl
 service from anywhere in the world. Through cameras, sensors and other
 devices placed around a home or business, users can get information about
 alarms, view or take pictures, and receive email or text messages when
 devices are triggered.
     "Whether you want to keep an eye on your summer home or know that your
 child got home safely from school, iControl's service improves its users'
 quality of life by providing a new level of information and control," said
 Reza Raji, President and CEO of iControl Networks.
