Looking to see real ROI? This HAI stand-alone system can reduce energy expenses and save money. Start with a ZigBee Thermostat and a ZigBee Load Control Module, connected to a MicroControl coordinator, to manage 75% of energy use in the average US home! Use plug-in modules for table lamps, appliances, and electronics. Easy to retrofit or install in new homes. Integrate a little security with wireless door lock control as well!
Distributed audio systems don't need to be wired to a media server or even a receiver or DVD changer. Now, detect music from a cellphone or tablet, utilizing the in-wall speakers as if they were a pair of Bluetooth headphones! The homeowner will never call you to update/find music on their server, because they can simply select whatever music they want to hear from Rhapsody, iTunes, YouTube, Pandora and manage their own streaming or stored tunes.
Users gain the ability to control their entire HAI home or business from an affordable Kindle Fire device. The colorful hand-held interface is consistent in design to HAI’s other award-winning mobile interfaces including Snap-Link for Android and Snap-Link Mobile for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch.
From their Kindle Fire e-reader, homeowners and business managers have the ability to view event logs, real-time video surveillance, and adjust anything under HAI’s control including lights, access control, appliances, temperatures, window coverings, audio, and more.
Allows for audio/video control using iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch integrated with HAI’s Home Theater Extender 2. HAI is providing a free app, free interface templates, free icons, and free design software that can be customized for TV’s, Blu-Ray/DVD players, A/V receivers, satellite/cable boxes, tuners, projectors, CD changers, and more.
The iOS device sends the command to the HTX2, which controls the A/V equipment using serial ports, IR ports, IP (TCP/UDP) and SPDT relays.
