    Omnipro II fried...move to Elk M1 Gold? What will work?

      I phased out my old OP2 system in favor of a more modern system about 6 months prior to Leviton discontinuing the line.  I had a wide variety of parts ranging from keypads to expansion boards. The only items that sold were two keypads and a touchscreen.  Eventually, I ended up just throwing...

    Omnipro II fried...move to Elk M1 Gold? What will work?

    The Omni Pro II has already entered the realm of dead tech since it was discontinued by Leviton about a year ago.  Have you contacted Leviton SA to determine if they still repair the OP2?  It's my understanding that Leviton charges a flat rate of $200 to fix any OP2 board. I think that would be...

    Alula

    I had never considered replacing my Omni with a Elk product.  My primary goal was to physically separate security from HA.  Thus, I have Qolsys as my security system and a few RPI's and Homeseer software doing all my HA tasks.  IMHO, integrating security & HA on the same controller board such as...

    Alula

    I phased out my Leviton/HAI OP2 in favor of a Qolsys IQ panel 2.  The Qolsys system is primarily a wireless device system.  But I had a lot of hardwired motion sensors, glass break detectors etc. that I wanted to tie into my new Qolsys panel.  The solution I used was the Alula  RE508X Universal...

    Why did Leviton buy HAI?

    Leviton maintained the status quo with HAI after the acquisition in August 2012.  That is, HAI was a independent operating unit called HAI by Leviton.  This independent status was maintained for about 18 months before Leviton decided to shutdown the independent operation and move it in house...

    Leviton S&A, 35A00-1CFL discontinuationg

      It looks like Leviton will discontinue the complete Omni line in the near future.  A regional security/home automation distributor in my area will be conducting a 2 hour webinar on April 25th for dealers.  This webinar will provide info on transitioning away from the Omni line.  That is...

    qolsys

      I have a Skybell doorbell camera at the front door and a Alarm.com camera ADC-V722W at my rear patio door.  Both cameras can stream video to the Qolsys panel.    The Skybell camera uses motion detection to alert me if anyone is at the front door.  A notification is sent to my phone and I can...

    [Article] Inovelli Z-Wave Switch Review

    I have 25 of these Innovelli ( dimmable and nondimmable) switches which were installed in January 2018. I've encountered  problems with two NZW31 dimmable switches.  The "power disconnect" tab located at the lower left of the dimmable switch sometimes has a tendency to work loose causing the...

    OmniPro II solution for greater than 176 hardwired zones?

    Have you considered using Leviton/Hai's SDK to establish a communications link between the the two independent OPII's?  This would be a piece of cake if you have someone with decent programming skills on your team.  There is also a third party open source project name JOmniLink which is written...

    Telephone line distribution hardware

    Pete,  I finally settled on your module.  I like it because it uses RJ45 jacks which allows me to use a patch panel for all my phones.

    Telephone line distribution hardware

      I damaged the input punch down by using a screwdriver insteade of  a punch down tool  to punchdown the wire which damaged the punch down connector to the point where it won't hold the wire.  The wire keeps popping out.  IOW, user error trashed the board. Nope. I just installed a Qolsys panel...

    Telephone line distribution hardware

    I want to replace an old Leviton 1 to 8 telephone distribution board.  It's a board that has one input from the telco and distributes that input to 8 home phones.  I'm using Cat 3 wiring for the home phones. Each Cat 3 wire is home run to the phone.    So, I'm looking for wall mounted hardware...

    qolsys

    I recently upgraded to a Qolsys IQ Panel 2 Plus from a antiquated panel.  The Qolsys panel is really responsive compared to my old panel.  Video streaming is really good on the Qolsys.  It uses Qualcomm Snapdragon SBC and Android 5 SE.  Thus, it does have a lot of computing horsepower.   The...
