HAI (Home Automation, Inc.), leading manufacturer of integrated automation and security products since 1985, announced that the iTunes store now features a new HAI application for iOS devices, "HTX2".
The HTX2 application allows for audio/video control using iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch (iOS devices) integrated with HAI's Home Theater Extender 2 (HAI part number 86A00-2). HAI is providing interface templates that can be customized for TV's, Blu-Ray/DVD players, A/V receivers, satellite/cable boxes, tuners, projectors, CD changers, and more. Included with purchase of the HTX2 hardware, HAI's HTX2 Mobile Designer software allows for the creation and/or customization of GUI (Graphical User Interface) "remote control" pages that are used for controlling A/V equipment using an iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
The iOS device sends the command to the HTX2, which controls the A/V equipment using serial ports, IR ports, IP (TCP/UDP) and SPDT relays. Over 300,000 IR codes are built-in, and additional codes may be added using the IR Learner.
Advanced users can modify the provided templates, design their own templates, or purchase templates from third-parties. Users can even create macro buttons like "Play Movie" to activate a chain of commands, so that all of the applicable audio/video devices are set accordingly with the touch of one button.
HAI's "HTX2" application, HTX2 Mobile Designer software, and the HTX2 are now available.
"Providing a complete yet affordable stand-alone AV control system is important to HAI" explains Jay McLellan, HAI President and CEO. "We are thrilled to offer the application, templates, and customization software as included components of the HTX2 hardware."
HAI products are available through a worldwide network of Distributors and installing Dealers in over 80 countries. For more information on HAI, please visit www.homeauto.com or email [email protected]
