New Orleans, LA - September 15th, 2010

HAI Announces Hi -Fi 2 Multi -Room Audio System

HAI will demonstrate Hi -Fi 2 at CEDIA to be held in Atlanta, GA, September 23 -26, 2010, in Booth 4046. An HAI New Products seminar will be held on 9/24 from 2:00 - 3:00 in Room 1408 of the Georgia World Congress Center.

Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security and home automation products since 1985, announced that the Hi -Fi 2 Multi -Room audio system is expected to ship in October 2010.

HAI's Hi -Fi 2 was created for today's demanding homeowners. The base system features 8 zones and 8 sources and may be expanded to 16 zones. Installation remains simple with standard Cat -5 wiring and standard speaker wire.

The powerful yet compact Hi -Fi 2 plays music from devices you already own (or new devices you wish to purchase), and is so easy to operate that anyone can enjoy it. With Hi -Fi 2, you have the ability to listen to different sources at the same time at different volume levels throughout your home. Or set all zones to the same source and volume.

The new OLED Volume Source Control (VSC) displays source name, volume bar chart, bass, treble, balance and more. It features four hard buttons for control of volume, source, and power. VSC's act as infra -red repeaters for source component control. Simply point the source's remote at the VSC and it will route the signal back to the original source component through the RIM. When a VSC is used with an HAI Music Gateway, artist name, album title, and track title may be displayed on the VSC (up to 80 characters).

Audio sources can now be locally inputted at the Hi -Fi 2 amplifier, or located throughout the house using Remote Input Modules (RIM). Local input examples include items like HAI's Music Gateway and satellite/Internet radio tuners. Remote input examples include a home theater system, kitchen TV, iPod dock, etc.

The color of the VSC and RIM may be changed to complement the interior décor. They ship white and have color change kits available in almond, light almond, black, ivory, and white.

Zone amplification has been increased to 25 watts RMS at 8 ohms per channel (50 Watts per zone) and four zones have outputs for additional amplification. The Hi -Fi 2 has a built -in universal power supply as opposed to the "power brick" of the original Hi -Fi by HAI.
Hi -Fi 2 may be a stand -alone installation or may be integrated with an HAI home control system for enhanced features including control from an iPhone or iPad, and automated functions like turning off all audio zones when exiting the home.

"We built this system on the success of our award -winning Hi -Fi," explained HAI President, Jay McLellan. "The new model features double the zones, more than double the power, more sources, local (and remote) inputs, plus an all -new OLED keypad."

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.
