I've searched, and I can't find anyone who has DIY'd their HAI install. Please speak up.
I thought I was sold on the M1, but I should at least give HAI a look-see.
I'm having trouble finding HAI installation documentation online, other than an old Omni II install manual from 2002 (FYI seems very similar to the Elk M1 install).
Yup, installed every bit of it myself. Its not really difficult. There are two Omni Pro II documents, the Installer's Guide and the Owner's Guide. You really need to read through each, because how HAI split the subject up is a bit arbitrary.
You should be able to find any manuals you need here:http://www.worthingt...ns/Manuals/HAI/
They are a bit old, only going up to Firmware 2.14, but the install proceedure really hasn't changed.
For the Owner Manuals, you can go here:http://www.homeauto....s/OmniProii.asp
You have a good point though, HAI does say they support the DIY community, and I've called them on several occasions and they have always been happy to help with problems, but they do keep their installation guides "locked up" on their pro installers web site. I'm guessing that they just don't want info like default passwords disclosed, although they are pretty easy to guess anyway.
