HAI Launches Developer Support Program and Website

Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security and home automation products since 1985, has launched a Developer Support program that includes a website and Developer Community online forum.

The Developer Support website and forum will be accessed via login. All interested Developers looking to develop solutions using HAI controllers or thermostats are encouraged to register. The site will consist of

• HAI Programming Protocols for Serial and Ethernet Connections.
• Software Development Kit (SDK), documentation, and examples
• Advanced access to HAI Downloads, including installation manuals and high -resolution logos and product images
• Dealer level access to the HAI Knowledge Base
Interested Developers register for the program by filling out the online form available on the public website. Applications will be reviewed and approved by Scott Dudoussat, HAI Director of Technical Services, within two business days.
"HAI is proud of the openness of our architecture," explains Scott, "We have a history of working with developers to generate applications that work with our products and this program is a natural and more official extension of that. We want to build a community for these developers for them to share problems and solutions in a creative and supportive environment."
