HAI will demonstrate the Cellular Communication Center and additional HAI products in Booth 743 at the CEDIA EXPO in Atlanta, Georgia on September 11-13, 2009.
New Orleans, LA - HAI (Home Automation, Inc.), leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985, announced today that it is shipping the Cellular Communications Center (C3).
The C3 (HAI part number 70A00-1) connects with all standard burglar or fire alarm panels, including HAI controllers, to emulate the phone line signal if there is not one present. The C3 dials out using a cellular network to communicate with a central monitoring station for security panels. It also allows telephone calls to be made or received over the Cellular network using a land line telephone in the home. The central station can call the homeowner for verification in the event of an alarm.
"The C3 provides another opportunity for added protection," explains Jay McLellan, HAI President. "It allows for installation in remote areas where no phone lines are available, or backup if a main phone line is cut or otherwise inactive."
The C3 will ship with an included backup battery and antenna. It requires a GSM SIM card and cellular service.
