About HAI Lighting Control (HLC)
HLC Products work as stand-alone or with a Home Control System. An HAI home control system has the ability to change your light settings by the time of day, a set schedule, by the triggering of events (including motion), via a telephone call, Touchscreen, Smartphone, or by a computer connected to the Internet.

All HLC products are UL Listed and use Generation III Universal Powerline Bus (UPB™) – a digital communications standard for lighting and home control that ensures superior reliability. UPB™ has been extensively tested and researched in residential environments and found to be 99.9 percent reliable. UPB™ works over existing wires in a home and does not require new wiring.

Configuration Software
When used with an Omni family or Lumina family home control system HLC products automatically configure themselves, and outside software is not required.

HAI offers HAI UPB™ UPStart Configuration software for professionals who desire to make advanced changes to HAI's default setup. It will allow you to change the mode of a Dimmer Switch to be Non-Dimming or vice-versa. This software also allows you to change the colors on the switch's LED and the rate that it brightens to fully on or dims to fully off.
