DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., Feb. 6, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Companies,
Inc. (OTCQB:CAPC), a leader in the design and manufacture of specialty power
failure lighting solutions and innovator of consumer safety and security
products for the Hospitality, Retail and Institutional channels, announced
today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Capstone Lighting Technologies, LLC,
has been assigned the power failure technology patent application filed on
January 3, 2014, by inventors Neil Singer, PhD, Ken Pasch, PhD and John
Granada, from AC Kinetics and Stewart Wallach, CEO of Capstone Companies
Inc.

The proprietary technical attributes of the technology enables unique power
failure detection, switch controlled properties, as well as thermal
protection.Notably, it is applicable for a broad variety of lighting fixture
configurations.With this innovation Capstone plans to expand its product line
into a larger and more diverse offering of stylish indoor and outdoor lighting
fixtures, which combine day-to-day lighting solutions with the safety of power
failure lighting capabilities.It can be incorporated into almost any lighting
fixture design including standard bulb socket adapters, ceiling can lights,
track and counter lighting, lamps, chandeliers and other indoor and outdoor
lighting fixtures.

Stewart Wallach, Chief Executive Officer of Capstone, commented, "Today is
another important milestone for Capstone and represents the culmination of
over 14 months of collaboration with AC Kinetics.With this groundbreaking
technological innovation, Capstone is capable of providing seamless,
integrated power failure lighting solutions while maintaining the design and
style of the primary lighting fixtures.Imagine your power going out, but the
lights functioning throughout your home just as they would when power is
available."

When power failure occurs it activates the technology's power failure lighting
solution. Lights using the technology can be operated on an as needed
basis.This feature enables the user to conserve their power failure resources
providing lighting solutions capable of spanning long periods of extended
power outages.

By incorporating a thermal overload safety protection, the proprietary
technology can be used in applications with insulated lighting fixtures
including ceiling cans or small closets.

In closing Mr. Wallach noted, "We believe this is a unique solution which we
expect to assume a lead role in the power failure lighting industry. We are
now capable of providing the safety of power failure lighting solutions
without compromising the style and design of an interior or exterior space."

Capstone expects to debut the initial products incorporating this
groundbreaking power failure lighting technology ahead of the 2014 Hardware
Show in Las Vegas, NV on May 6, 2014.
