Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security and home automation products since 1985, announced that their Smart Grid Solutions’ ZigBee® Smart Energy product line will now be distributed internationally by several key HAI distributors.
HAI HAN products allow utility customers to implement time of use rating structures, manage demand response by shedding load during peak demand events, and send common custom informational messages to the customer. HAI’s Omnistat2 Programmable Communicating Thermostat (PCT) is a flexible product designed for use by utility companies for Home Area Network (HAN) use in Smart Grid programs. It utilizes an easy to understand Multicolor Display that can change colors in response to utility related events. The PCT communicates with smart meters and can be used to display and control HAI’s other HAN products such as Load Control Modules (LCM) and can be controlled by the In Home Display (IHD).
HAI’s new international Smart Grid Solutions distribution is represented by Alloys, located in Australia (alloys.com.au), OMEIO International, located in Singapore (omeio.com), and KTI Limited, located in Canada (ktiltd.on.ca).
HAI ZigBee Smart Energy certified products include: 30A Wireless Load Control Module (HAI part number 73A00-3SH), 5A Wireless Load Control Module (73A00-4SH), In-Home Display (81A00-1WHSH), 15A Plug-In Load Control Module (89A00-1SH), Omnistat2 Single Stage Conventional & Heat Pump, White (RC-1000WHSH), and the Omnistat2 Multistage Universal with Humidity Control, White (RC-2000WHSH).
