Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security and home automation products since 1985, announced the development of a KNX Gateway, in addition to their own popular 220-240V lighting control system, Omni-Bus.
The HAI KNX Gateway, HAI Part Number 97A00-1, allows Ethernet-enabled Omni and Lumina controllers to communicate with and control KNX devices installed on the network. Lighting, temperature plus energy management, and motors (window coverings, shades, shutters, etc.) are among the many KNX devices that can be controlled from an HAI interface or automatically via controller programming.
Separately, HAI has seen great success with their 29-part Omni-Bus lighting control network. Designed for the 220-240V/50Hz International marketplace, the DIN Rail style HAI Omni-Bus Lighting Control Network provides hardwired and wireless solutions. The products are broken down into four segments: Core Products (Required), Load Control Modules, Switch Interfaces, and Accessories. Products are available for control of lighting loads, fans, motors, pumps, shades, shutters, and more.
HAI will discuss these and other products during nine different trainings at Integrated Systems Europe. Courses will be held in Room D401 by Jason Moyer, HAI’s European Manufacturer’s Representative, and Thomas Pickral Jr, HAI Business Development Manager, on February 2nd, 2012. Sessions include, “Introduction to Home Automation”, “HAI Installation Training”, “Programming Omni/Lumina Systems with PC Access”, “Home Area Networking for Smart Grids”, “HAI Omni-Bus Lighting Control”, “Designing/Installation of an Audio System”, “Selling Home Automation”, “HAI for Building Automation”, and “HAI New Products”.
HAI expects the KNX Gateway to be available in the 2nd Quarter of 2012. Omni-Bus products are available now.
“Providing the KNX Gateway is just another way HAI is dedicated to providing a complete, non-proprietary solution” explained Allison Read, HAI International Sales Manager. “Customers in the 220-240V market now have many options, including HAI’s popular Omni-Bus Lighting Control Network.”
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
