HAI to Demonstrate New Wireless Energy Management Products Designed for ZigBee

HAI (Home Automation, Inc.), a leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985, will demonstrate a new suite of wireless Energy Management Products Designed for ZigBee in booth 4890 at the International Builders Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, Nevada to be held January 20 — 23, 2009. ZigBee is the global wireless language connecting dramatically different devices to work together and enhance everyday life. ZigBee technology is well suited to a wide range of energy management and efficiency, building automation, industrial, medical, home automation applications.

The new products to be demonstrated include an RC 2000 Omnistat ZB (HAI part number RC-2000ZB) communicating programmable thermostat, a 5amp Wireless Load Control Module (HAI part number 73A00-4), and two wireless table top control devices; the MicroControl (HAI Part number 81A00-2) and the Wireless Coordinator for HAI Omni & Lumina Controllers (HAI Part number 81A00-3). They are all part of HAI’s expanding Energy Management product line.

The Omnistat2 Wireless 7-day programmable communicating thermostat is for conventional single stage heat/cool, heat pump, two speed heat pump, two stage conventional, and zone control systems. It is fully interactive with all HAI home control systems and is compatible with most others. It may be controlled both locally and remotely and is designed to precisely control the temperature and humidity within the home. Using advanced digital technology it actually “learns” a home’s heating and cooling patterns and adjusts control to maximize both the HVAC system’s efficiency and the occupants’ comfort. All Omnistat2 models meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR guidelines for energy efficiency.

The 5A Wireless Load Control Module controls low voltage circuits in outdoor air conditioning units, pool and spa heaters and pumps, generators, and more. It has ultra low stand-by power for energy savings.

The MicroControl is a tabletop, bedside, or wall mount display and control device for selected HAI controllers, Omnistat2 Thermostats, and Load Control Module functions.

The Wireless Coordinator for HAI Omni & Lumina Controllers plugs into a serial port on an HAI Omni or Lumina family controller and allows control of HAI Wireless Energy Management Components. The display helps set up the installation of the wireless systems.
