					Taylor Morrison's Interactive Home™ Brings Connected Living Home to
Cailfornia Homebuyers

The Interactive Home™ system debuted October 1 in the southern California
market with the addition of Elan devices for select homes. The optional
system makes it easy for California homebuyers to control multiple
devices in their home - TVs, thermostats and door locks with a user
interface that’s simple to use, yet flexible enough to control the most
complicated electronic gadgets.

Irvine, CA, October 19, 2012 -- Taylor Morrison is delivering the
simplicity, safety and elegance of connected home automation to southern
California homebuyers and setting the standard for what homebuyers will
demand from builders in the future.

The Interactive Home™ system debuted October 1 in the southern California
market with the addition of Elan devices for select homes. The optional
system makes it easy for California homebuyers to control multiple
devices in their home - TVs, thermostats and door locks with a user
interface that’s simple to use, yet flexible enough to control the most
complicated electronic gadgets.

The available options and true customization of the Elan system allow
homebuyers to create connected living experiences that match and reflect
their lifestyles.

“The average California homebuyer wants their home to be as connected as
their everyday life is,” said Phil Bodem, division president for Taylor
Morrison Southern California. “But as the number of devices we own
increases, the need to have an intelligent interface to control all of
our smart devices grows. Our Interactive Home™ system allows homeowners
to walk through their front door completely in control.”

Taylor Morrison CEO and President Sheryl Palmer said the company has been
working to integrate home automation into its product lines for some time
now and pointed to how real world technology is now making the ideas
Taylor Morrison helped introduce with the Innoventions Dream Home exhibit
located in Disneyland® Park a reality for today’s homebuyers.

“Smartphones, tablet PCs and the increased capabilities of the Internet
started these conversations with our homebuyers and we responded with the
Interactive Home™ system,” she said.

The flexibility of the Interactive Home™ means homeowners can monitor the
front door of their Taylor Morrison home from a laptop. They can browse
movies from their smart phone, then select and start the film from their
phone.

Even energy efficiency is easy with the Interactive Home™. The Elan
system allows thermostats to be controlled remotely, allowing a homeowner
to fine tune their home’s climate from the office or a smart phone.
In addition, controls can be set to illuminate walkways at night, send
emails when the garage door is left open - even turn everything off and
lock the house with one touch of a button by the bedside.

“Homebuyers have been waiting for their devices and homes to merge and
provide the level of connectivity that has been promised for so long,”
Bodem said. “With the Interactive Home™ system, that day has finally
arrived.”
