Home automation manufacturer HAI has released Version 2.15 controller firmware for its Omni and Lumina home control systems to expand the options and flexibility of its systems.
HAI’s OmniPro II and Lumina Pro home control systems now offer support for audio systems from NuVo, Xantech, SpeakerCraft and Proficient. Also, the NuVo Grand Concerto, Essentia, and Simplese; Xantech MRC-88; Speakercraft MZC; and Proficient M4 and M6 audio systems have been added to HAI’s audio connectivity list, joining the NuVo Concerto, Russound CAM, CAV, CAA-66 and CAS44 audio systems. The Hi-Fi by HAI audio system from HAI can connect to any of HAI’s home control systems.
The new firmware also includes a number of additional enhancements to the automation capabilities of all of the Omni Family and Lumina Family controllers. These include support for the CentraLite StarLite lighting system, the ability to blink UPB lights at varying blink rates, raise/lower temperature settings a fixed number of degrees from their current settings, temporarily change the light level of a light then return to the previous setting, and control the action of the LED and beeper when displaying a message on a console or Touchscreen, says HAI. It is now possible to programmatically control the beeper and enable/disable the beeper on a console or Touchscreen, and one can also easily enable or disable the beeper locally at each console.
