Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security and home automation products since 1985, announced that VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) intercom is being added to the OmniTouch Pro, HAI Part Number 1131. Additionally, a new 6-License Software Bundle, HAI Part Number 1131X6, is being added as an economical solution to projects with multiple third-party Touchscreens.
HAI’s OmniTouch Pro provides HAI interfaces on third-party Windows Touchscreens. The VoIP Intercom is point-to-point from one Touchscreen to another, with the ability to communicate between HAI IP Touchscreens and third-party Touchscreens. Dealers can associate supported surveillance cameras with any intercom station, allowing homeowners to both speak with and see their guest. The intercom features manual accept/reject options, but also possesses the ability to auto-answer. To ensure privacy, the intercom features a do-not-disturb mode.
Local settings at each OmniTouch Pro Touchscreen (and each OmniTouch 5.7e) control intercom volume levels (for both voice levels and ring levels) as well as privacy options (auto-answer, do not disturb, and mute). The screen will notify the homeowner where the message originated (front door, guest bedroom, etc).
OmniTouch Pro is available in eight different languages. In addition to the upcoming 6-license bundle, HAI currently offers a 3-license bundle (HAI Part Number 1131X3) for three different third-party Touchscreen installations. The VoIP functionality and the 1131X6 Bundle are expected to be available in the 2nd Quarter of 2012.
“Our customers will be thrilled with the addition of the VoIP functionality to the OmniTouch Pro software, as well as the new bundle to reduce installation costs” explained Allison Read, HAI International Sales Manager. “Home and business owners may use their favorite Windows tablet to see and speak with someone at the gate, in addition to activating lighting, and either opening the gate or notifying authorities.”
HAI products are available through a worldwide network of Distributors and installing Dealers in over 80 countries. For more information on HAI, please visit www.homeauto.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org
