HAI Expands International Offerings with HAI Omni -Bus Lighting Products

Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), the leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985, announced today that the Omni -Bus Lighting Control Network product suite is now shipping. Designed for the 220 -240V/50Hz International marketplace, the DIN Rail style HAI Omni -Bus Lighting Control Network provides hardwired and wireless solutions. The products are broken down into four segments: Core Products (Required), Load Control Modules, Switch Interfaces, and Accessories. Products are available for control of lighting loads, fans, motors, pumps, and more.

Twenty -seven new SKU's are available, including two styles of Switch Interfaces (white and brushed stainless) with wired and wireless options available. HAI Switch Interfaces may be used to control anything under the purview of an HAI system, including shades, audio, and more. Using HAI's 6 -Channel Universal Switch Interface Module, third -party switches can control the Omni -Bus network and anything under the purview of an HAI system.

The HAI Omni -Bus lighting system fully integrates with HAI automation controllers, providing control of Omni -Bus devices using standard HAI interfaces and software applications, including Snap -Link Mobile for iPhone and Android. This convenience of remote control can result in increase energy savings and safety. Additionally, lighting may be integrated into HAI scenes, enabling lighting to be controlled by schedule, time, event, and more.

The HAI Omni -Bus lighting products are easy to install; power modules feed power to Omni -Bus devices on the network. Switches, Load Control and other DIN rail modules connect to the Omni -Bus network using standard Cat -5 wiring. Each hardwired switch connects to the Omni -Bus network using Cat5. Omni -Bus communicates with Omni or Lumina home control systems using the Interface Translator DIN Rail Module, termed the "Gateway of the Omni -Bus system". Programming is accomplished with a simple software tool using the USB Programming Interface Unit.

"We are excited to offer these affordable and reliable lighting products to our International customers", explained HAI Director of International Sales & Marketing, Allison Read. "With a dedicated HAI lighting line, and interfaces available in several languages, the end -user will be completely comfortable in a home 100% controlled and monitored by HAI solutions."

The products are shipping and available for order now. Part numbers, high resolution images, tech sheets, manuals, and a demonstration video are available on HAI's website. Webinars explaining the new HAI Omni -Bus product line will be conducted in both English (May 18) and Spanish (May 25).
