HAI Now Offers Custom Engraving


Staff member
Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), leading manufacturer of home control products since 1985, is now offering Part Number 38A06-2 for custom laser engraved buttons for HAI's 6 button Room Controller and 8 button House Controller. This part is being sold through HAI's regular distribution channel and is part of HAI's award-winning HAI Lighting Control (HLC) product line.

All HLC Products are UL-Listed and use a digital communications standard for lighting and home control called Universal Powerline Bus (UPB) that ensures superior reliability. HLC Products work as standalone without a home control system; however, when an HAI home control system is added it is possible to change light settings by the time of day, a set schedule, by the triggering of events, via a telephone call, or by a computer connected to the Internet.

The 6 button Room controller is used to control all lights in a room or area. Lights may be turned on, off, dimmed, brightened, and set to four different scenes to provide limitless options for both security and aesthetic lighting of a home.

The 8 Button House Controller is for master lighting control. It shows the status of up to eight rooms. If any light is on in an integrated room, that button is illuminated. Pressing the House Controller button will turn all of the lights in that room on or off.

The customized buttons of both the Room and House Controller will be black ink on translucent buttons. Activated buttons will show as blue through their backlights.

For more information on HAI's 6 Button Room and 8 Button House Controller Custom Engraving please visit www.homeauto.com or call 800-229-7256.

Am I reading correctly that this includes a coupon for engraving 2 controllers, 1 6-button controller AND 1 8-button controller?

This is nice but I've already reverse-engineered the basic Elk keypad plastic and CNC-milled it out in Oak & walnut for fun since I didn't care for the white plastic much. Haven't thought about selling them though. Easy to do with a 3D touch-probe, money and a whole lot of time :)

I'm making up a new one this weekend for another keypad I just bought. I'll post some pictures of the milling, finishing and final stained & coated work.
