HAI Adds CoolMaster Air Conditioning Systems as Latest Connectivity Partner

Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), the leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985, announced today that integration has been finalized between HAI Omni and Lumina Family control systems and CoolMaster VRV/VRF air conditioning systems.

The HAI controller can adjust set points and operating modes with the ability to monitor changes in the aforementioned items. Each indoor CoolMaster unit appears as a standard HAI thermostat and may be controlled as though it was a standard HAI thermostat.

CoolMaster VRV and VRF systems provide connectivity to units from Toshiba, Mitsubishi, Hitachi, Sanyo, Fujitsu, and Daikin. Each CoolMaster adapter supports multiple indoor units. Each thermostat in the HAI home control system can be assigned to an indoor unit on one of the CoolMaster adapters. The CoolMaster adapter utilizes a single setpoint for heating and cooling. Changing either the heat or cool setpoint of the HAI thermostat will control this single setpoint.

"HAI is thrilled to increase connectivity to CoolMaster's HVAC units", explained HAI Associate Director of Marketing, Greg Rhoades. "This integration builds upon HAI's ongoing energy management endeavors, including the integration of Carrier/Bryant HVAC systems late last year."

"CoolAutomation Company is very glad entering the Connectivity Partnership Program of HAI, one of the leading home automation manufacturers, stated CoolAutomation CEO Mitbarg Igor. "Such a step will help all the HAI integrators, fast, easy and straight forward integration with major VRF air conditioning brands, such as Daikin, Mitsubishi etc' ."

Connectivity occurs using HAI's Serial Connectivity Adapter Kit, part number 36A05 -4, or the HAI Serial Expander, part number 10A17 -1. Instructions for each installation option are available on HAI's website. CoolMaster interface adapters are supported by HAI's OmniPro II, Omni IIe, Lumina Pro, and Lumina home control systems utilizing HAI controller firmware version 3.8 or later.

HAI products are available through a worldwide network of Distributors and installing Dealers in over 80 countries.
