The Omni Notifier, Sends Email and Text Messages From Omni Panels
Leviton Security & Automation (formerly HAI) has released a new module that brings email and text notifications to any Omni (Pro II, IIe, LTe) or Lumina (both) control system. It uses one of the RS-232 ports on the controller and needs an ethernet connection (in addition to the one that is probably already connected to the Omni panel) — the best part — it requires no service contracts to use!

TI SensorTag CC2541 – Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) Sensors with iBeacon
A few years back I wondered why Apple didn’t adopt NFC (Near Field Communication) for the iPhone and iPad. I’m actually happy they didn’t because iBeacon or Bluetooth (4.0) LE (Low Energy) seems like a much better (useful) technology than NFC. Especially in the context of Home Automation.

Comparisons: Myro:Air vs. Arcam airDAC Airplay UPnP DAC / Streamer
As of this post, there are only two Apple Certified AirPlay Streamers featuring high-quality DAC’s. The Arcam airDAC and Myro:Air. Both streamer/DAC combos are very capable but offer different features and components. As far as streaming capabilities both offer AirPlay streaming and are compatible with devices (e.g. Windows & Android) that can stream content to UPnP DMR’s (Myro:Air has been tested with the following media types).

Myro:Air AirPlay Streamer Now Available For Pre-Order!
I’m proud to announce that after two and a half years and thousands of man hours Myro:Air has passed Apple Certification for AirPlay and Made for iPod, iPhone and iPad. Myro:Air is designed, engineered and made in the U.S.A with domestic and foreign parts. The boards are assembled in Washington State — one of the main goals in creating Myro:Air was to keep as much of the product made in the U.S.A. as possible.
From a technical perspective, Myro:Air is the first AirPlay streamer of it’s kind (most AirPlay devices are wireless speaker systems or receivers). Features like RS-232 for home automation/control systems like Crestron and AMX brings transport control (play, pause, next track, previous track) and metadata integration to custom installers. As well as smartsource support for Russound RNET based controllers. For the audio output side, Myro:Air provides analog output via the venerable Wolfson WM8741 DAC. It can also output digital audio in parallel via a Wolfson WM8804.
I’m especially excited to finally be able to share Myro:Air with the rest of the world!
