HAI Updates Multi-Room Audio Control With iPhone App

By Marie Jones | Friday | 28/01/2011

HAI Communications, which manufactures automation and security products, has upgraded its Snap-Link Mobile for iPhone which will allow users to control their multi-room music system from an Apple iPhoneT, iPod TouchT and iPadT.

The Version 1.2 software update adds control over HAI's new Hi-Fi 2 multi-room audio system, and its Music Gateway storage device, enabling users to view album art and meta-data such as artist name and track title from compatible devices, as well as change tracks from anywhere around the home.

"Homeowners who use HAI entertainment products now gain remote control over their entire audio systems without the need for a costly home control system", said HAI Associate Director of Marketing, Greg Rhoades.  "The handheld entertainment interface is perfect for control in homes, offices, restaurants, etc."

The iPhone app can now connect directly to the Hi-Fi 2 multi-room audio system for an affordable remote control touchscreen interface.  The app will recognise whether it is connecting to a whole home control system or simply to the Hi-Fi 2 , providing the appropriate screens and icons.

Additional improvements to the application include Pan/Tilt/Zoom control for Axis and Panasonic IP Cameras as well as DSC security system integration.

Homeowners and business managers also have the ability to view event logs, real-time surveillance footage, and adjust anything under HAI's control including lights, access control, appliances, temperatures, window coverings, audio, and more. 

Multiple accounts are able to be accessed from within the same application, and the app allows access to the HAI Omni or Lumina equipped property in English, Catalan, Chinese, French, Italian, and Spanish.  Users have the ability to adjust small settings such as wake-up time and irrigation hours, as well as the ability to show or hide specific items.

The application is available now in Apple's iTunes Store for $49.99.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
