HAI Snap-Link App Now Available for Kindle Fire
Kindle Fire users now have access to lighting control, surveillance and more with the Android version of HAI Snap-Link.
Android users, particularly those who own a Kindle Fire, sometimes feel a bit left out of the home automation loop. Every company has an iOS app, and iPads seem to be the default controller these days for automation.
HAI’s Snap-Link app now works with the Kindle Fire. Snap-Link had previously been released for iOS. By releasing an Android version, HAI has opened up it’s market to many more users. The $200 price of the Kindle Fire makes it one of the least expensive touchpanel controllers on the market.
While this is significant for HAI, it’s also significant for Kindle Fire, which with HAI Snap-Link starts looking and acting more like a traditional tablet, rather than just a glorified e-reader.
So what can the Snap-Link for Kindle do? Users can use the app to access surveillance cameras, adjust home lights, turn up the air conditioning, close the drapes - anything that’s connected to an HAI system can be operated with the app. Users can also access multiple locations, such as a vacation home.
The app works on other Android devices, not just the Kindle. Users of HAI Omni or Lumina systems can purchase the app for $49.
