Intelligent Living Corp. Completes State-of-the-Art Smart-Home Project

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - July 9, 2007) - Elgrande International (OTCBB: EGDI) announced today that the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Intelligent Living Corp. (ILC) (www.intelligent-living.us), recently completed a comprehensive smart-home project in a $4 million designer residence located on prime Lake Okanagan waterfront property in Summerland south central British Columbia. The home is owned by one of the principals of Avenue Communities, a leading multi-unit developer in Greater Phoenix with over 3,500 units in development. The home is the lead property of a planned multi-unit development that includes 200 condominium units and 60 town homes.

The system includes integrated lighting and security features with multi-point video surveillance, high-end home theater components and a Russound distributed audio video system delivering six sources into 10 independently controlled zones including 2 home theaters. The project uses Stealth Acoustics invisible speakers to deliver theater-quality sound without any visible openings or components. The system is controlled through multiple HAI touch panels located throughout the home and includes secured remote access and control through wireless PDA or Internet-enabled PCs. The $140,000 project included system architecture design, coordination of architectural features with the project architect and owner, structured wiring, equipment supply and installation, commissioning, and training.

Murat Erbatur, Chief Operating Officer of Elgrande International, commented, "This was a challenging project that required marrying functional requirements and physical components into the design of the home to achieve an architectural statement. From the concept stage forward smart-home features were key elements of the design. We had to create a system that offers un-compromising quality, integration and design forward aesthetics. The result is a showcase presentation that delivers leading edge performance and functionality. We expect that the design features pioneered in this project will carry forward into the upscale condominium and town home projects currently underway."

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.
