FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HAI INTRODUCES LUMINA LIGHTING CONTROL
Utilizing Universal Powerline Bus (UPB) Technology, Lumina Offers an Affordable, Sophisticated Lighting Controller that is Simple to Operate and Install.
Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), the premier manufacturer of home control products since 1985, introduces Lumina; a sophisticated affordable central lighting and control system. The Lumina whole house lighting control system offers all of the options and amenities that consumers desire, while maintaining a price point that most can afford.
Lumina allows for the setting of elegant lighting scenes throughout the home, with the ability to preset “modes” for each room that can be scheduled (according to sunrise/sunset, motion, or event) or controlled manually with the push of a button. Create a gentle light for morning in your kitchen, low lights for movie viewing in your home theater, night lights for a nightcap by the fireplace or “all off” for when your day is done. Lumina’s mode controller goes by the entry door so you can simply tap Home, Away, Party, Sleep, Special or Vacation to set lighting appropriately for convenience and energy savings.
Installation is easy: replace existing light switches with HAI’s full selection of switches and dimmers, then mount the Lumina controller on a wall and plug it in. Set it up using the included LCD keypad/console and you’re ready to go. HAI includes the transformer and back up battery for a complete kit.
Lumina is available in two versions: the Lumina, capable of 8 rooms and 64 loads, and the Lumina Pro, capable of 31 rooms and 217 loads. Each has built-in Ethernet port and three serial ports for easy expansion. Because Lumina is based on HAI’s award winning controllers, customers can expand their Lumina’s connectivity with HAI options such as Telephone Access with voice menus, Web-Link II (for internet control), Home Control for Windows Media Center (for control with a single remote), HAI thermostats and temperature sensors (for energy management), HAI Wireless door and motion sensors for lighting control and numerous other accessories. Lumina Pro also supports multi-room audio systems.
Lumina has a built in astronomical clock for sunrise and sunset calculations and automatic daylight savings time adjustment, ensuring accurate dusk to dawn lighting control year round.
“With our Lumina product, we’re making lighting control accessible to a wider base of individuals by keeping costs low and making the installation and operation of the control system uncomplicated” said Jay McLellan, CEO and Founder of HAI. “Now, anyone can enjoy the beauty and convenience of home lighting control”.
Lumina is ideal for new or retrofit construction, as it uses Universal Powerline Bus (UPB) , the most advanced digital communication standard available to transmit commands over existing standard electrical wires. UPB is a digital power line communications standard for lighting and home control that has been used in commercial environments since 2001. It has been extensively tested and researched in residential environments and found to be 99.9 percent reliable. Lumina can also operate lighting devices by other manufacturers, including X-10 based devices, ALC and others.
Lumina and Lumina Pro are shipping now. For more information please visit www.homeauto.com or call 800-229-7256.
