Summer Deadliest Time of Year for Teen Drivers; Cyber Tracker Can Offer Peace of Mind for Parents

GPS Device Can Monitor Teen Drivers' Speed, Alert Parents

ASHEVILLE, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 5, 2006 -- Homeland Integrated Security Systems (OTC: HISC) is encouraging parents of teenage drivers to use the latest GPS technology such as its GPS Cyber Tracker to ensure the safety of young drivers. Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for teens and young adults. More than 5,000 young people die every year in car crashes and thousands more are injured. Drivers who are 16 years old are more than 20 times as likely to have a crash as are other drivers. State and local laws, safe driving programs, and driver's education classes all help keep teens safe on the roads. Parents can also play an important role in keeping young drivers safe.

Summer months are often the most dangerous. For example, California authorities say more teen drivers will be killed in car crashes between May and August than any other time of the year. Officials cite a number of factors, including overconfident driving and speed.

The Cyber Tracker lets parents of teen drivers know how fast they are driving, know where they are and provide a means of communications if they see their teen driving dangerously.

The Cyber Tracker is currently the only portable, low cost device that supports Push to Talk, tracking and computer functions without utilizing a cellular phone. The Cyber Tracker's convenient rugged design (5" x 5" x 1") makes it applicable in a variety of situations where it is necessary to know the exact location of a person or object.

For parents of teen drivers, that means they can constantly monitor their teens' location, speed and can also see everywhere they have been over several days. If they see something that concerns them, the Push to Talk feature allows them to talk to the teen.

"One of the biggest fears of parents of teen drivers is that their son or daughter may be speeding, or in an area where they shouldn't be," said Frank Moody, CEO of Homeland Integrated Security Systems. "The Cyber Tracker gives the parents peace of mind, as well as a way to communicate with their teen driver if they are concerned or see excessive speeds."

With the geo-fencing technology, parents can designate areas that are restricted or off limits. If a vehicle carrying the device enters those areas, a notification is sent to the parents' desktop computer or PDA device. Push to talk technology enables parents to be in voice contact with the driver at any time.
