Leviton integrates BitWise and Omni
Leviton has integrated the BitWise AV control system with the Omni security control system in a move that the company claims will provide custom touchscreen interfaces and additional functionality.
"This native integration allows BitWise customers to create custom interfaces for their OmniTouch 7 touchscreens, utilizing new graphical elements for free, including...OmniTouch 7 icons and backgrounds via BitWise Project Editor software," said the company in a press release. "The new BitWise platform will also now include functionality for intercom integration and a free integration module for Leviton’s Omni-Bus Lighting Control Systems."
Leviton acquired the previously autonomous BitWise last year.
More information from the release:
The new integrated Omni and BitWise platform features drag and drop commands and feedback, as well as built-in GUI content for Omni devices, allowing users to control security and HVAC systems, lighting, audio zones, locks, and buttons or macros.
This integration also allows BitWise customers to incorporate 2N Helios intercom door stations, providing communication from a gate or front door to any OmniTouch 7 touchscreen on the property. For integrators wishing to incorporate Leviton Omni-Bus DIN Rail lighting controls, a new free module, complete with a GUI template, exists on the BitWise Store.
To download the OmniTouch 7 graphical elements, installers should sign up for the BitWise Store and download the “HTX2” GUI template. Custom interfaces combining BitWise and Omni eco-system can be created using Project Editor, the free BitWise software.
