FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HAI Introduces Omni IIe Home Automation Controller as Part of the Award-Winning Omni Family Product Line
Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of integrated security and home automation products, has introduced an upgrade to its Omni II home automation controller, the Omni IIe.
The Omni IIe has all of the functions and capabilities of the Omni II, including UL-Listed security, telephone access, temperature and lighting control, but now has built-in Ethernet connectivity and three built-in serial ports.
“As more and more customers have in-home networks, HAI is bringing direct connection to the network into a lower cost product,” explains HAI President, Jay McLellan. “Now, the Omni IIe can be accessed over the home network and over the Internet without having a computer running at the house.”
Additionally the Omni IIe simplifies wiring to in-home computers, because no serial cable is needed. Also included with the Omni IIe controller is a PIM, the Powerline Interface Module for HAI’s new UPB based lighting control system, HAI Lighting Control (HLC). The PIM plugs directly into the third built-in serial port without requiring any port expanders. The Omni IIe also has an expanded vocabulary.
Positioned a bit closer to the company’s flagship OmniPro II, the Omni IIe provides advanced features for homes that don’t need as many zones, lighting controls, thermostats and the audio control offered by the OmniPro II. Like all Omni controllers, the Omni IIe supports OmniTouch and OmniTouch with Video touchscreens, HAI’s new Wireless products and a host of connectivity partners.
Priced only slightly higher than the Omni II (which will no longer be offered by the company), the Omni IIe is the price/performance leader in its class. For more information, including technical specifications and how to purchase, please visit www.homeauto.com.
