Homeland Integrated Security Systems Signs Distribution Agreement With HACO Payment Systems to Target Credit Card Processing Industry

ASHEVILLE, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 26, 2006 -- Homeland Integrated Security Systems, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HISC) is pleased to announce that the Company has signed a distribution agreement with HACO Payment Systems. HACO will be an authorized dealer of the Cyber Tracker, which will target the credit card payment processing industry. HACO is a registered merchant services provider of Visa® and MasterCard® for NOVA Information Systems, Inc. and US Bank.

HACO Payment Systems (www.hacopaymentsystems.com) has helped identify an additional market for the Cyber Tracker by utilizing the Internet Protocol features of the Cyber Tracker's Ethernet port. By simply connecting the Cyber Tracker using a crossover cable to a VeriFone Omni 3750IP credit card terminal, a merchant can process credit card transactions using wireless communications technology. In this setup, the Cyber Tracker acts as a communications gateway and the terminal's communications software connects to the processor's host computer in the same manner as if it were connected to DSL. This setup competes with existing products in the market place that have wireless data communications built into the terminal, however none of these wireless terminals offer GPS tracking. The other benefits are that the Omni 3750IP has a telephone line backup. This allows a merchant to use the terminal in a traditional retail environment and also in a mobile or trade show environment where telephone lines are not available.

The merchants that would benefit from the Cyber Tracker and Omni 3750IP package are: antique and art dealers that have retail stores and attend shows, building material that deliver to the job site, mechanic tool vendors, landscaping services, plumbing, heating and cooling contractors and any merchant that offers card services at a customer's site. The additional benefit of the Cyber Tracker to larger companies with fleets of vehicles is the ability for the dispatcher to track where their vehicles are in addition to the driver's ability to accept credit cards as a form of payment at the time of delivery.

"This is one of many machine to machine applications that are available to be used with the Cyber Tracker. Homeland Integrated Security Systems and HACO successfully completed an initial test of the Cyber Tracker and the Omni 3750IP with an auction house merchant who needed wireless processing for an off site auction in Belle Mead Tennessee the weekend of May 20th," stated Ian Riley, Chief Technical Officer of Homeland Integrated Security Systems, Inc.
