HAI Adds Rave Technology, Nexus Audio Systems, Total Control, GUI JA Board, and eLoka Lighting Control Systems as Connectivity Partners

Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security and home automation products since 1985, announced the expansion of their Connectivity Partner program. New partners include Rave Technology, Nexus Audio Systems, Total Control, GUI JA Board, and eLoka Lighting Control Systems.

Rave Technology manufacturers the RV612 modular multi -room audio system that supports 6 independent zones (expandable to 12), 100 watts of power per zone into a 4 ohms load. Button triggers on an HAI OmniTouch 5.7, 5.7e, or 10p Touchscreen, as well as programming in an HAI controller, can be used to control power, volume, muting, transport controls, audio sources, and many other functions for each audio zone on the RV612. Integration occurs using the HAI Serial Connectivity Adapter Kit (HAI part number 36A05 -4) and requires firmware version 3.4 or higher.

Integration with Nexus Audio Systems provides another option for high quality audio distribution. The Nexus C -612 supports six independently operated zones (expandable to 12) and infrared (IR) control of four external line level audio source components. Each zone features a 50 Watts per channel stereo amplifier. Button triggers on an HAI OmniTouch 5.7, 5.7e, or 10p Touchscreen, as well as programming in an HAI controller, can be used to control power, volume, muting, transport controls, audio sources, and many other functions for each audio zone on the Nexus C -612. Integration occurs using the HAI Serial Connectivity Adapter Kit (HAI part number 36A05 -4) and requires firmware version 3.4 or higher.

Total Control created "Total Control Remote Edition", a native iPhone/iPod Touch application which supports the HAI Home Theater Extender (HTX). Compliment your existing HAI system and control IR products with this universal remote control application. Total Control provides direct control between the application and the hardware appliance.
GUIjaboard.com creates custom graphical user interface solutions for HAI Touchscreens. Their templates allow you to get a head start with a great looking user interface design. GUIjaboard also provides templates that can be added to any Automation Studio project for use in HAI's OmniTouch 5.7e and OmniTouch 10p Touchscreens.

Eloka's Lighting Control System offers quality and reliability in lighting control and automation for 220/240V installations. Eloka's lighting control system is fully (two -way) integrated with HAI home control systems, enabling homeowners to monitor all lights (including from visual floor plans on the OmniTouch 5.7e and OmniTouch 10p touch panels) and to execute one -touch scenes.
"Adding two new audio/video companies, an international lighting partner, an additional interface provider, and a design services company shows HAI's dedication to providing unique solutions for every installation", explains Scott Dudoussat, HAI Director of Technical Services. "HAI now fully integrates with over 50 manufacturers and hundreds of products, providing integrators the freedom they need to design the most appropriate system."

HAI products are available through a worldwide network of Distributors and installing Dealers in over 80 countries. For more information, please visit HAI's website, www.homeauto.com or email marketing@homeauto.com.
