HAI by Leviton Releases Omni-Bus Scene Controller

International system adds to robust Omni-Bus platform

Melville, New York, January 2, 2013 - HAI by Leviton announced today the release of its new Omni-Bus Scene Controller, designed for controlling 110/220/240V markets to enable the configuring of lighting scenes or moods.


The new Omni-Bus Scene Controller defines up to 32 different scenes and controls a total of 256 Omni-Bus load control modules. Each scene can be triggered from up to eight different Omni-Bus input device buttons, including the wall switch, wall mount remote, switch interface or key fob remote. When used in conjunction with an HAI by Leviton control system and Omni-Bus Interface Translator, users can trigger scenes from an HAI controller, touchscreen or smartphone/tablet application. Multiple Omni-Bus Scene Controllers may be installed on the network for additional scene capability.

"Adding scene control to the already robust Omni-Bus offering is a perfect next step for our international markets," said Allison Read, International Director of Sales for HAI by Leviton. "Now, home and business owners can push one button and have all lights adjust to optimal lighting levels for a party, dinner preparation, bedtime or more."

Omni-Bus components can be used in a standalone lighting control network, or for increased functionality, tied into an Omni or Lumina control system for automatically turning off lights when exiting the home or business to reduce energy expenses.
