DAVIDSON, N.C. -- April 3, 2013

Ingersoll Rand (NYSE:IR), a world leader in creating and sustaining safe,
comfortable and efficient environments, is offering home automation technology
including the Nexia^TM Home Intelligence System to the 20 international teams
participating in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2013, October

more insight into total energy used in their house projects and allow them to
make better decisions in achieving maximum efficiency.

Having a simple, easy to use system that controls and monitors the home
environment, including temperature and comfort settings, is an important
element in effectively managing energy usage. The system allows users to link
all of the security features and energy sources in a home and interact and
adjust those sources from wherever at their convenience. The smart-home
technology is completely wireless and can be managed via smart phones, tablets
and computers from any location with internet access.

“We are excited to expand our current sponsorship with the Department of
Energy and provide additional technology to the university competitors in this
year’s Solar Decathlon,” said Gary Michel, Senior Vice President, Ingersoll
Rand and President, Ingersoll Rand Residential Solutions. “While the
competition allows university contestants to demonstrate their experimental
and leading edge concepts, it is also important to communicate that practical
and affordable technology is readily available to help today’s home-owners
achieve significant energy efficiency.”

Incorporating the Nexia Home Intelligence System into their house designs,
allows participants to leverage the latest wireless technology to control
locks, lighting, thermostat controls, cameras, blind and window covering
controls, energy management solutions, and solar production measurement. The
primary controls and locks are manufactured by Schlage and Trane. Nexia serves
as an open platform to connected devices to allow complete home control
management and remote connectivity.

Ingersoll Rand is also making available its Trane Energy Management Solution
(TEMS) to help measure circuit level energy consumption and renewable (solar)
production. All data and measurement is displayed in a simple and easy to read
user interface. This will provide insight for the teams and help them educate
visitors on energy use and costs – an important component of the competition.

Four Teams Become Early Adopters

To date, four teams have committed to using the Nexia Home Intelligence
platform in their Solar Decathlon 2013 entry:

1. Arizona State University & The University of New Mexico

2. Team Ontario (Queen's University, Carleton University, and Algonquin
College)

3. The University of North Carolina at Charlotte

4. West Virginia University

Teams who are still interested in receiving technology support are encouraged
