50 Shades of Lighting Control
HAI is featured in this article about the benefits of lighting control!
"Residential custom integrators are now realizing the security and energy saving aspects of lighting control in addition to its aesthetic appeal, said Greg Rhoades, associate director of marketing at HAI.
'Homeowners love the ability to turn all lights off automatically when typing in their security code on the way out the door,' Rhoades said. 'They love being on vacation and switching up a few lights for a lived-in appearance, or using their iPad from their bed to open the window coverings.'
'Many installers are using lighting control just for creation of ambiance. However, lighting is the number-one proven deterrent to crime, so HAI makes sure that when an alarm occurs, all lights automatically activate, and the exterior lights can even flash to alert emergency vehicles.'
While HAI manufactures two lighting control product lines, the company’s home control system can integrate with over a dozen other lighting manufacturers. 'Working together ensures that the homeowner gets the exact control necessary or allows an HAI home automation panel to integrate with an existing lighting control system,' Rhoades said.
He suggested that as dealers push lighting control–with 'growth occurring in part thanks to better technology which can control LED, CFL, etc.'–they also need to cover natural lighting control and educate the homeowner."

How Wireless Home Automation Products Can Help Expand Your Security Business
"Today, many security dealers are searching for all-encompassing systems that can expand much further than a standard security panel. For these installers, the home automation system with a security backbone has proven to be the best solution for growth. Dealers can now utilize the experience they have installing security systems to increase their income without a significant education hurdle or an unbearable installation time.
More often, dealers are receiving requests for features not typically seen during a home security install, such as setting interior lights to flash during every emergency, or preventing the air conditioning unit from operating during a fire, slowing the spread of smoke and fire. Most especially, homeowners are requesting the ability to remotely check up on their home and express the desire to adjust as many home settings as possible from their smartphone, regardless of their current location."
