New Orleans, LA
HAI, the leading manufacturer of home control systems since 1985, announced
today that it will be supporting multi-room audio systems by both Nuvo and
Russound via its top of the line OmniPro II home control system and OmniTouch
touchscreen interface providing integration of home automation and audio
The support of Nuvo's Concerto and Russound's CAV 6.6 audio systems will
be demonstrated at HAI's booth and at the NextGen 05 Demonstration Home
during CES with product shipping at the end of January, 2005. Upgrade chips
will be available for OmniPro II and OmniTouch products currently in use.
The OmniPro II is HAI's sixth generation controller and debuted
at the CES show in 2001. It includes UL-Listed security, HVAC and
lighting control for energy management, and the ease of telephone
and Internet access and control. Additionally it features a built-in
Ethernet port making control and monitoring features of the system available
to any device on the home data network with a standard web browser,
like computers, PDAs and web-tablets.
The OmniTouch is a colorful "plug and play" touchscreen interface.
Its responsive icons facilitate control of lights and small appliances,
monitoring and adjustments of security and temperatures, including outdoor
temperature and humidity, pool and spa temperatures, ventilation, decorative
lighting and other items under control of the Omni-family system.
For the Russound and Nuvo products, the OmniTouch can be used to control
on/off, volume, muting, and source selection for each of the audio zones.
Additionally audio zones can be controlled by "OmniPro II modes"
such as preset volume and lighting levels for "party" mode or outside
speakers and lights turn off with "night" or "away" modes.
All HAI products are sold through its worldwide
network of Distribution Partners and installed by over 1000 trained dealers. For
