Intelligent Living Corp. Automates Eco-Friendly Showcase Home and Expands Presence in Pacific Northwest

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - August 10, 2007) - Intelligent Living Corp. (OTCBB: EGDI) (formerly Elgrande International, Inc.) announced today that the Company ("ILC") has completed the system design, equipment layouts and installation of structured wiring for a comprehensive digital-home project located in the San Juan Island community of Friday Harbor, Washington State's premier vacation destination ( The architecturally designed home utilizes insulated concrete form construction to achieve a highly energy efficient building envelope with extreme longevity and structural integrity.

The automation system incorporates integrated security, monitoring and access control systems, lighting controls, and distributed multi-source audio/video (A/V) linked to a high definition home theater system. The design includes smart lighting switches controlled by motion sensors for automatic security, video surveillance cameras integrated to the A/V system and one-touch panels for the control of lighting, audio/video sources, security and access. The audio/video distribution system will utilize Microsoft's Vista™ operating system running on ILC's NextG media PC.

Michael Holloran, Chief Executive Officer of ILC, commented, "The home utilizes a design forward construction technique that results in a very energy efficient and eco-friendly structure. The owner, who is also the distributor of the building system in the Pacific Northwest, wanted reliable state-of-the-art control and installation techniques that highlighted and complemented the building's construction. The concrete exterior walls and floors precluded the use of conventional wiring systems. We utilized a hot wire cutting system to imbed the control cables into the high density foam insulation that clads and insulates the exterior walls. This gave us unrestricted access and the opportunity to cost effectively run the 6,000+ feet of signal and control wiring required for the design level of automation. The design builds on and extends our success using Microsoft technology to control A/V applications and remote security and monitoring. The system uses Microsoft's Vista™ operating system on our NextG PC platform."

ILC has ongoing contracts and relationships with a number of builders, primarily those developing high-end condominiums and gated communities, and established associations with industry-leading technology partners.
