However, the Omni & Lumina Families also include control of OmniStat2 thermostats and temperature sensors.

Entertainment controls must also be present for a true whole-house automation solution.

HAI also offers Pronto Link, a ProntoScript integration module for the Philips TSU9800, TSU9600, or TSU9400 Pronto remotes.

And finally, HAI offers the Hi-Fi multi-room audio system allowing you to listen to music throughout your home in up to eight rooms.
