Set Up HAI IP Devices and Customize Touchscreens
Automation Studio is the set up tool for the IP devices in a
HAI home automation installation. It is required to set up HAI customizable OmniTouch
Touchscreens and HAI Home Theater Extenders (HTXs).
Automation Studio is designed for use by trained professional installers and
includes an Online Learning Center to facilitate self support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Automate any Room!
With Automation Studio, a customizable OmniTouch Touchscreen, and the HAI Home Theater Extender (HTX) you
may automate any room, whether it is a home theater, corporate boardroom, or a school's
You can set up one button on the Touchscreen to close the curtains/shades, lower a screen, and
turn on the appropriate A/V equipment.
When you add an HAI home control system to this set up, you can add control of the room's
lighting, temperatures, and more to the same button on the Touchscreen or via the TV.
Customizing IP Touchscreens
customizable OmniTouch Touchscreens are IP-based devices that are
shipped with HAI's latest Touchscreen software, called HAI
However, Automation Studio gives
you complete control of the look, feel, and function of the Touchscreen. A
more vivid, user-friendly graphic interface can be developed based on the homeowner's
lifestyle and interests through the use of Automation Studio.
Customizations can include adding your dealer logo and contact information or customizing
screens to suit each individual room. You may add a floor plan graphic to the
Touchscreen interface, and set up buttons that will open specific websites.
Automation Studio provides a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor that allows
you to create Touchscreen pages in a drag-and-drop environment, and see exactly how the page
will look without having to first download the design to a Touchscreen. You use
Automation Studio's built-in Simulator to test your Touchscreen designs.
Setting up Other IP Devices
Automation Studio is required to set up the IP or analog surveillance cameras that you wish to view on your customizable Touchscreen, and to configure HAI's
HAI Home Theater Extenders (HTXs).
The HAI HTX works with an HAI customizable Touchscreen, such as the portable OmniTouch 10p, to control your home theater equipment. The HAI HTX has a built-in IR library with the IR codes for over 300,000 devices and has the ability to learn new IR codes.

Automation Studio Support
Automation Studio is a very complex program. Accordingly, HAI has developed an
Online Learning Center
containing videos on how to use the program, documents such as the
"Introduction to Automation Studio" and the
"HAI Graphics Primer", to help provide a basic understanding of how the program works and
basic design concepts for the graphics that you wish to use in your Touchscreen interface.
The HAI Forum has an Automation Studio Section for users to post their questions and
obtain technical support. All current users of the HAI Forum have automatic access
to this Automation Studio Section. If you don't currently have access to the HAI Forum, you
may obtain this access when you register your copy of Automation Studio.
