HAI ZigBee & Z-Wave Door Lock Integration

The New Orleans-based manufacturer says its latest firmware update will work with its Ethernet-enabled Omni and Lumina controllers to provide a simple means of homeowner-friendly door lock security control.


HAI says its new firmware update will be available sometime this month and it's recommended that custom installers update their clients' security systems with the latest HAI software to ensure compatibility.

When top dealers such as Nick Tamburri of AHA Design consistently laud HAI for its line of home control, home automation and security products, it says the company must be doing something right.

Validating those opinions are actions such as the New Orleans-based company’s recent announcement that it is releasing a software update to enhance its control and security systems’ usability. Just after the start of the new year HAI revealed that it is updating its controller software to allow for the two-way integration of ZigBee and Z-Wave wireless door locks. HAI dealers that install Omni and Lumina home control systems will be able to utilize wireless door locks from top manufacturers such as Kwikset, Yale and Schlage, and the company says that with the update homeowners can lock and unlock as many as 16 doors using HAI tuchscreens and keyfobs, and they can control these solutions remotely via HAI’s Apple iOS and Android apps.

HAI says that installers should make sure the Omni Pro II, Omni IIe, Lumina Pro and Lumina controllers are running software version 3.10 or later, and that Z-Wave integration requires Leviton RF+3 Serial Interface Module part number VRCOP. In addition ZigBee integrations will require HAI’s ZigBee Interface Module part number 81A00-3ZB running firmware 14.08 or greater.
