Home Automation Inc.’s (HAI) Omni and Lumina controllers now support Z-Wave wireless technology.
Z-Wave, a budding home automation standard, is used in products from a variety of vendors. “When used with an HAI Omni or Lumina home control system, Z-Wave devices are ideal for Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU) applications,” said the company. “For single-family homes and larger applications, HAI recommends the UPB [Universal Powerline Bus] technology used in HAI Lighting Control products. HAI Omni and Lumina home control systems allow the use of multiple technologies in a single installation, maximizing both flexibility and choice of devices.”
“HAI recognizes the importance of supporting various technologies so both consumers and installers can enjoy a range of choices when deciding what products to integrate with an HAI Omni or Lumina controller,” said HAI President and CEO Jay McLellan. “All of our controllers now support a variety of lighting control products such as Lutron RadioRa, X-10, Leviton DHC and ViziaRF, Lightolier Compose, ALC Hardwire Lighting, CentraLite, and of course our own line of HLC products based on the UPB platform.”
