HAI INTRODUCES HAI LIGHTING CONTROL (HLC)
HLC allows everyone to enjoy the benefits of a sophisticated lighting control
system at an affordable price.
Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security
and home automation products, is making affordable, modular lighting control
possible. HAI Lighting Control (HLC) “smart” switches and
room controllers let you easily set elegant lighting scenes for each room,
without the use of complicated software programs. The HLC product line replaces
standard “on/off” lighting switches, and gives you the option of saving specific
lighting configurations or “scenes” according to time of day or occasion.
HLC gives you limitless options for both security and aesthetic lighting in the
home. For instance: set warm and comfortable moods for dining, movies or entertaining;
create a soft light pathway to the bathroom or kitchen at night; turn all indoor and/or
outdoor lights on or off from a central location; coordinate landscaping lights for
drama and beauty; or schedule indoor and outdoor lighting for a lived-in look when away.
HAI’s products take home lighting from a necessity that’s easily taken for
granted to a luxury home accessory that makes life more beautiful.
Lighting control can enhance the enjoyment and value of your home, add security
for peace of mind, and decrease costs on your energy bill. With HLC you can
experience all of the benefits of a sophisticated lighting control system easily
and affordably. “We created HLC to provide consumers with a budget-friendly
option for a lighting control system that offered all the amenities and options that
they could want,” said Jay McLellan, President and founder of HAI. “HLC lets anyone
add the elegance of controlled lighting to their home”.
HAI’s HLC Product Line includes:
- Dimmers and Switches: Replace traditional light switches with ones
that have attractive, back-lit buttons putting lighting control at your finger tips.
- Scene Switch: Control all lights in a room or area. Lights may be turned on,
off, dimmed, brightened, and set to four different scenes which is as simple as
pressing the scene button on the Scene Switch 5 times.
- House Status Switch: The master lighting control that shows the status for up to
eight rooms. If any light is on in an integrated room, that button is illuminated.
Pressing the House Status Switch button will turn all of the lights in that room on or off.
HAI’s HLC line is a less expensive alternative to a full scale lighting control
system – a perfect solution for those that are looking to automate their home
lighting without having to pay extra money for the bells and whistles that make a
full-scale system more expensive.
All HLC products are extremely easy to install – no modifications to the home are
required, and an electrician can have a house wired and ready to go
within one working day. These plug and play products are an easy way to
add a touch of class to any home – and for those remodeling, the retrofit install
means it’s an opportune time to talk to your contractor about these easy add-ons.
All HAI Lighting Control Products are UL-Listed and use Universal Powerline Bus (UPB) –
a digital communications standard for lighting and home control that ensures superior
reliability. For more information, including technical specifications, please visit
