I would be very interested in seeing how the functionality you had with the Stargate will port over to the Omni Pro II platform. How are you going to do phone functions with the Omni Pro? How do the programming options match up between the two systems?
Unfortunately the "porting" will be by hand, line by line.
From what I have found it looks like the Omni uses pre-built functions that you string together to create an event. Unlike the Stargate where you may need multiple lines of ladder type code to create an event. From the specs the Omni only supports 500 lines of code as stated:
500 lines of non-volatile ACP control program storage
â€¢ Commands (immediate and scheduled) include:
- on, off, dim, brighten, level, scene and ramp rate
- timed on, off, dim, bright
- activate a button (macro)
- Change system modes, zone status, flags, counters,
- With options: change settings, mode, fan for one or all
thermostats, Say, display or place a call with a
I haven't figured it all yet. Also, from reading various forums, while the Omni II is a very versitile controller, it is geared more towards the professional installer which is why I am looking at it. If a customer wants a specific functionality, they will have to pay for the hardware, installation, and programming time.
I wish there was another tightly integrated phone and voice solution with the Stargate.
At this time it looks like the only solution is with a PC running HomeSeer and HomeSeer phone.
