Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), the leading  manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985,  announced today that integration has been finalized between HAI Omni and Lumina  Family control systems and CoolMaster VRV/VRF air conditioning systems.
The HAI controller can adjust set points and  operating modes with the ability to monitor changes in the aforementioned  items.  Each indoor CoolMaster unit  appears as a standard HAI thermostat and may be controlled as though it was a  standard HAI thermostat.

CoolMaster  VRV and VRF systems provide connectivity to units from Toshiba, Mitsubishi,  Hitachi, Sanyo, Fujitsu, and Daikin.  Each  CoolMaster adapter supports multiple indoor units.  Each thermostat in the HAI home control  system can be assigned to an indoor unit on one of the CoolMaster  adapters.  The CoolMaster adapter  utilizes a single setpoint for heating and cooling.  Changing either the heat or cool setpoint of  the HAI thermostat will control this single setpoint.

“HAI  is thrilled to increase connectivity to CoolMaster’s HVAC units”, explained HAI  Associate Director of Marketing, Greg Rhoades.   “This integration builds upon HAI’s ongoing energy management endeavors,  including the integration of Carrier/Bryant HVAC systems late last year.”

“CoolAutomation Company is very glad entering the  Connectivity Partnership Program of HAI, one of the leading home automation manufacturers,  stated CoolAutomation CEO Mitbarg Igor. “Such a step will help all the HAI  integrators, fast, easy and straight forward integration with major VRF air  conditioning brands, such as Daikin, Mitsubishi etc’ .”
Connectivity occurs using HAI’s Serial Connectivity Adapter Kit, part number  36A05-4, or the HAI Serial Expander, part number 10A17-1.  Instructions for each installation option are  available on HAI’s website.  CoolMaster  interface adapters are supported by HAI’s OmniPro II, Omni IIe, Lumina Pro, and  Lumina home control systems utilizing HAI controller firmware version 3.8 or  later.
