HAI Expands Lutron® Connectivity Partnership, Adds RadioRA® 2 Integration

HAI will demonstrate the enhanced Connectivity Partnership with Lutron at the International Security Conference -West (ISC -West) to be held in Las Vegas, NV, March 24 -26, 2010, in Booth 18135. Additionally, the partnership will be demonstrated at Electronic House Expo in Orlando, FL, March 25 -27, 2010 in Booth 1013.

HAI (Home Automation, Inc.), leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985, announced that integration with the RadioRA® 2 whole -home lighting control system from Lutron® is now complete.

HAI Omni and Lumina home control systems now have two -way integration with Lutron's RadioRA 2 lighting control system. The HAI controller can directly control the system's lights and trigger lighting scenes. Control of Lutron's Sivoia® QS wireless shades is also possible. The HAI controller monitors RadioRA 2 devices and responds to changes in the system.

RadioRA 2 lights and shades can be controlled directly through traditional on/off/scene commands, by simulating the press of a button on a RadioRA 2 keypad, pressing a virtual or "phantom" button in the RadioRA 2 system, or activating a scene on a GRAFIK Eye QS scene controller. RadioRA 2 is supported by HAI Omni LT, Omni II, Omni IIe, OmniPro II, Lumina, and Lumina Pro systems. The systems must be utilizing controller firmware 3.4 or later.

"Expanding the relationship with Lutron to include integration with the new RadioRA 2 is important for HAI," explains Jay McLellan, HAI President. "In addition to HAI's own lighting control line, it provides another innovative solution for our installing dealers."

All of HAI's Omni and Lumina home control systems easily integrate with RadioRA 2 and require a serial cable for installation, as well as the newest firmware, version 3.4. Omni LT supports 16 RadioRA 2 devices, while Omni II, Omni IIe, and Lumina support 64 RadioRA 2 devices. OmniPro II and Lumina Pro support 232 RadioRA 2 devices.

HAI will be holding a series of five FREE trainings to be held in conjunction with the EHX show in Orlando, March 25 -27, 2010. For more information, email training@homeauto.com
