omni57.jpgHAI has been busy updating their product line for 2007. They just posted their new 2007 Product Guide (PDF) on their website. A couple notable updates include the HAI OmniTouch 5.7/5.7e (pictured) and Omnistat-Z.

Scheduled for mid-year 2007 release, the OmniTouch 5.7 adds to the current OmniTouch Video line but adds these enhancements:

  • Larger (5.7”) LCD using TFT technology for richer
    colors and better viewing angle.
  • Improved video update rate
  • Speaker instead of beeper for more pleasing audible tones.
  • Infrared receiver
  • No Touchscreen Hub required

Whereas the 5.7e also adds:

  • Single Ethernet connection for all
    communication as well as power, using Power-Over-Ethernet (POE) technology.
  • Direct access to IP cameras.
  • Two-way IP-based audio intercom.
  • Firmware updates via network.

HAI’s new Omnistat-Z line has built-in Z-Wave transceivers. When used with an HAI controller the Omnistat-Z communicates wirelessly, making it ideal for retrofit applications.
