HAI, the leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since
1985, has released Version 2.15 controller firmware for its Omni and Lumina home
HAIís award-winning OmniPro II and Lumina Pro home control systems now offer
support for audio systems from NuVo, Xantech, Speakercraft, and
Proficient. The NuVo
Grand Concerto, Essentia, and Simplese; Xantech MRC-88; Speakercraft MZC; and
Proficient M4 and M6 audio systems have been added to HAIís audio connectivity list,
joining the NuVo Concerto, Russound CAM, CAV, CAA-66, and CAS44 audio systems.
The Hi-Fi by HAI audio system from HAI can connect to any of HAIís home control
When connected to an OmniPro II or Lumina Pro, the audio system can be integrated
with any other automated system in the house such as security, lighting control, or energy
management. For example, music can be programmed to come on automatically when
the door is opened. The integration is so seamless that the keypad from the audio system
is displayed on the HAI OmniTouch Touchscreen and over the Internet with Snap-Link
exactly as is would on the original keypad from the whole home audio system.
The new firmware also includes a number of additional enhancements to the
automation capabilities of all of the Omni Family and Lumina Family controllers. These
include support for the CentraLite StarLite lighting system, the ability to blink UPB lights
at varying blink rates, raise/lower temperature settings a fixed number of degrees from
their current settings, temporarily change the light level of a light then return to the
previous setting, and control the action of the LED and beeper when displaying a
message on a console or Touchscreen. It is now possible to programmatically control the
beeper and enable/disable the beeper on a console or Touchscreen. One can also easily
enable or disable the beeper locally at each console.
