Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), the leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985, announced today that HAI Lighting Control Products are now shipping with Gen III UPB features and California Title 24 compliance.
HAI’s popular powerline carrier based product line, HAI Lighting Control, has received another round of enhancements to meet the needs of home and business installations in 2012 and beyond. HAI Gen III UPB includes improvements to the core UPB technology and better tolerance for power frequency variations and interruptions in the dimmers. Gen III dimmer and non-dimming switches allow the user to configure the device as dimming or non-dimming in the field locally at the switch using the rocker. Dimmer and non-dimming switches now feature an automatic timeout so that the light automatically turns off and an optimized TRIAC drive. Gen III UPB is compatible with all previous generations of UPB products.
Additionally, several HAI Lighting Control products are now Title 24 Compliant, joining HAI’s Omni and Lumina home control systems. Title 24 is an energy code designed to decrease energy consumption through the regulation of approved lighting control devices. The following devices are now shipping as Title 24 Compliant: 35A00-1 (600W UPB Dimmer Switch), 35A00-1CFL (500W CFL UPB Dimmer Switch), 35A00-3 (600W UPB Non-Dimming Switch), 40A00-1 (15A Relay Switch), 55A00-1 (1000W UPB Dimmer Switch), 55A00-2 (1500W UPB Dimmer Switch), and the 55A00-3 (2400W UPB Dimmer Switch).
