omni-notifier 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!

Somfy ILT Control via HAI OmniPro II (wiring diagram)

HAI recently announced native control for Somfy ILT motors with the 3.4 firmware.  This means you no longer need to use RTS or Z-WAVE to control shades via the OmniPro II controller.    Last night I connected up and tested my friends system (also using Myro) and I’m happy to announce that HAI has hit another home run!  You get “real-time” feedback as well as the ability to set to a specific “light level”, like 50% (which is part way).

I have included a wiring diagram on connecting the HAI to the Somfy RS-485 ILT tap (also known as the Somfy SDN).  Then you just need to get the Motor/Group code and enter that into PC Access.  What I thought would be a difficult process of trial and error actually turned out to work on the first try!

SNEAK PEAK: Myro:Home for iPhone (HAI Controller)

Here is a sneak peak of the Myro:Home iPhone application.  As you can see, progress has been coming along.  I’ve been getting the design finalized and now I’m just tweaking the look and feel a bit.  The mobile framework has also been set in the core Myro:Home application which acts as a server on your home network.  The iPhone version connects into Myro and loads and controls the HAI panel via a secure channel.

The key focus has been getting control of your home via the iPhone in the quickest time possible.  As it works now, I can load and control in less than 3 seconds (if on WIFI).

September 7, 2009 No Comments


I’ve been learning Objective-C and have been working on a few iPhone apps… one of which will be the official Myro:Home iPhone application which will allow you to control your HAI panel and view IP cameras.   This application will only be available to users of the Myro Control 8″ In-Wall Panel (MYRO:8W).    The application is in early BETA and should be ready for release beginning of November.
