It seems since the Omni already has IP connectivity, adding this feature really shouldn't require any additional hardware, but maybe this feature would exceed their available firmware free space.
Not to jump in on the wrong thread (being an Elk guy), but I'm surprised to see that their new product is just as limited as Elk's from the looks of things - with a few email addresses to choose from and static email text strings. If I were the product developer I would've blown my competitor's shortcomings out of the water, not matched what they had for many years!
Well, lets just say that HAI's software abilities have never been on the cutting edge of technology. The fact that they are discovering email as a form of communication should be applauded. Give them another 10 years, and who knows, they could even add a built-in web server. Of course, it will likely use up the 4 other serial ports.
$159?? Rather expensive.
You have to love the picture they are using in their brochure. So a woman, maybe in an airplane, is looking at her phone with a smirk. Hmmm... Maybe she rigged her house to burn down, after she tied up her husband inside. "Just got the text message for a gas alarm. Good. Good. Wait, the smoke alarm just went off. Perfect..."
