New Orleans, LA
HAI, the leading manufacturer of integrated
security and automation products since 1985, has announced the addition of two
new sensors to its award-winning product line, an indoor/outdoor temperature
sensor and an indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity sensor.
The temperature only sensor differs from HAI's
currently available sensor in two key areas. The first is the attractive beige
case, which is suitable for indoor décor, and the second is the internal
circuitry that is coated to resist moisture and features a new, high accuracy
sensor that doesn't need calibration. The sensor hooks up to any unused zone on
an HAI Omni family controller and can be used for sensing and controlling
temperatures in attics, garages, greenhouses, basements, wine coolers, etc. It
can also report over and under temperature and freeze conditions.
The temperature and humidity
sensor includes all of the features of the temperature only sensor plus adds an
electronic humidity sensor, reporting 0 to 100 percent relative humidity. High
and low limits can be set for taking action (i.e. turning on the bathroom vent
fan, running a/c in de-humidification mode, turning on humidifier in heating
mode, etc.) or reporting high or low humidity conditions in homes, greenhouses,
wine coolers, humidors, etc. Controlling humidity is particularly helpful in
combating the growth of mold in vulnerable areas of the home, such as bathrooms,
basements, attics, etc.
"As most people are now
aware, humidity can cause a variety of problems," explains HAI President Jay
McLellan. "HAI has responded by introducing this new sensor in an effort to
monitor and control humidity."
Both of the new sensors are
currently available for shipping and are compatible with all three of HAI's
award-winning Omni family integrated security and home automation controllers.
All HAI products are
sold through a worldwide network of Distribution Partners and installed by over
1000 dealers. For more information on HAI products, please visit
