HAI Snap-Link Mobile for iPhone and iPad Now Feature Customizable Remote Control for Audio/Video Equipment

HAI (Home Automation, Inc.), leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985, announced that the iTunes store now features version 1.07 of Snap-Link Mobile that includes the ability to remotely control audio/video equipment when used in conjunction with an HAI Home Theater Extender (HTX2).

The HTX2 (HAI part number 86A00-2) allows for audio/video control using iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch (iOS devices) integrated with HAI's Snap-Link Mobile application and an HAI home control system.

Additionally, HAI's free HTX2 Mobile Designer software allows for the creation and/or customization of GUI (Graphical User Interface) "remote control" pages that are used for controlling A/V equipment using an iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Interface designs for iOS devices can be modified using HAI's HTX2 Mobile Designer software. HAI provides generic templates that can be customized for TV's, Blu-Ray/DVD players, A/V receivers, satellite/cable boxes, tuners, projectors, CD changers, and more. Advanced users can modify the provided templates, design their own templates, or purchase templates from third-parties. Users can even create macro buttons like "Play Movie" to activate a chain of commands, so that all of the applicable audio/video devices are set accordingly with the touch of one button. Audio/video devices can also be separated by room using PC Access so that when the homeowner selects the Living Room, they only gain access to the AV devices within that room.

The iOS device sends the command to the HTX2, which controls the A/V equipment using serial ports, IR ports, IP (TCP/UDP) and SPDT relays. Over 300,000 IR codes are built-in, and additional codes may be added using the IR Learner.

HAI's HTX2 Mobile Designer software, Snap-Link Mobile for iPhone/iPad, and the HTX2 are now available. Existing users of Snap-Link Mobile for iPhone/iPad can upgrade their application for free to gain access to the audio/video remote control functionality.

"Adding remote control for AV equipment into our app is very exciting for HAI and our installing dealers" explains Jay McLellan, HAI President and CEO. "Homeowners can now change the channel on the TV, adjust the temperature of the thermostat, lock the front door, or view a surveillance camera all from one hand-held application."

The HAI HTX2 may also be used with OmniTouch 5.7e Touchscreens. Customized A/V interfaces for HAI Touchscreens are developed using HAI's Automation Studio, which is also used to configure the functionality of the HTX2.

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