HAI Omni-Bus Lighting Control Introduces Advanced 110V Compatibility to Control CFL, LED, Electronic Low-Voltage, Halogen, and Incandescent Lighting

HAI Products will be available for demonstration at the 2012 International Builders Show, in Booth W5153, in Orlando, Florida, February 8-11, 2012.

Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security and

home automation products since 1985, announced North American availability
of its bus-based Omni-Bus Lighting Control Network product line.

HAI's Omni-Bus Lighting Control Network combines the benefits of a central
lighting control system with the flexibility of a distributed lighting
control system. The key benefits include elegant, multi-button programmable
wall switches while eliminating the expense of in-wall high voltage wiring
to multi-way switches. Whereas competing central lighting systems require
home runs to a single central cabinet, modular Omni-Bus components can be
located where needed to save wiring and installation costs.

Omni-Bus modules utilize DIN-Rail, a worldwide standard for mounting
equipment. Several load control modules are available, including an
advanced dimmer capable of controlling CFL, LED, Electronic Low-Voltage
(ELV), Halogen, and incandescent lighting sources. All modules are capable
of controlling 120-240V, 50/60 Hz. The Omni-Bus system is powered by a
digital power supply, making it one of the most energy-efficient lighting
systems available. 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, shutters, shades, and more.

An Omni-Bus lighting control system has complete stand-alone functionality,
and is configured using a free software utility for PC. It may also be
fully integrated into HAI Ethernet-enabled Omni and Lumina home control
systems for increased programming functionality and remote access via the

All modules are CE, FCC, UL (ETL) approved and will be shipping by the end
of Q1 2012 through HAI's worldwide distribution network. HAI will be
providing an Omni-Bus enclosure meeting code requirements for a secure and
quick installation in the North American marketplace.

"Omni-Bus has been extremely successful in International markets," explained
Allison Read, HAI International Sales Manager. "HAI's Din-Rail system
affords Integrators an elegant and unique product to control virtually any
lighting source, while reducing required wiring to speed up installation and
save money."

HAI products are available through a worldwide network of Distributors and
installing Dealers in over 80 countries. For more information, please visit
