Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), the leading manufacturer of integrated  automation and security products since 1985, announced today that an  iPod/iPhone compatible dock has been released for the Hi-Fi 2 and HAI  Connectivity Partner distributed audio systems.
The HAI Dock is designed for use with the Hi-Fi 2 Multi Room Audio System or a  supported audio system from NuVo, Russound, Xantech, Speakercraft, and  Proficient.  The Dock enables an iPod or iPhone to become a  source that can be played in any audio zone.   The HAI Dock allows IP enabled devices to navigate and browse the music  library on the iPod by playlists, artists, albums, songs, podcasts, genres,  composers, and audiobooks.

The Dock will send metadata (e.g. playlist, genre, artist,  album, and track, etc.) to HAI IP enabled OmniTouch Touchscreens and the Hi-Fi  2’s Volume Source Control.  From those  devices, homeowners can send control commands (play, pause, stop, next track,  previous track, rewind, fast forward, next chapter, previous chapter, etc.) to  the iPod that is in the dock.  Album art  is also displayed as a thumbnail on the HAI IP OmniTouch Touchscreens.
The Dock is available in wired or wireless versions, and supports iPhone (1st,  3G, 3GS, 4G), iPod Touch (1st, 2G, 3G, 4G), iPod Nano (3G, 4G, 5G,  6G), and iPod Classic.  When docked, the  Apple device not only communicates, but also charges.  Up to 8 Docks can be connected and controlled  on a network.

“This  device lets homeowners easily share their constantly updating music library,  including playlists, podcasts and audiobooks,” explained HAI Director of  Technical Services, Scott Dudoussat.  “Having the metadata displayed on  HAI Touchscreens, including album art and track information, is a really cool feature  that homeowners will love.”
