HAI announced today at EH Expo that their Omni and Lumina line of products now support the Z-wave protocol.
Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), a leading manufacturer of home control products since 1985, announced that its award winning Omni and Lumina controllers support Z-Wave technology today at the Electronic House Expo held in Long Beach, California.

Z-Wave is a wireless network protocol used in a wide variety of home automation devices made by numerous manufacturers. In addition to supporting standard Z-Wave lighting devices, HAI has worked in partnership with Leviton to support the advanced features of Leviton's ViziaRF series of lighting control devices, including lighting scenes and two way communications.

When used with an HAI Omni or Lumina home control system, Z-Wave devices are ideal for Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU) applications. For single family homes and larger applications, HAI recommends the UPB technology used in HAI Lighting Control (HLC) products. HAI Omni and Lumina home control systems allow the use of multiple technologies in a single installation, maximizing both flexibility and choice of devices.

“HAI recognizes the importance of supporting various technologies so both consumers and installers can enjoy a range of choices when deciding what products to integrate with an HAI Omni or Lumina controller,†explains HAI President and CEO, Jay McLellan. “All of our controllers now support a variety of lighting control products such as Lutron RadioRa, X-10, Leviton DHC and ViziaRF, Lightolier Compose, ALC Hardwire Lighting, CentraLite, and of course our own line of HLC products based on the UPB platform.â€
