HAI Home Theater Extender HTX
Control Your A/V Equipment from an HAI Touchscreen
Access Control Card ReaderAwardsThe HTX can send IR commands to your A/V equipment based upon button touches made on an IP-based OmniTouch Touchscreen. These Touchscreens are customizable using HAI Automation Studio, which allows you to set up pages on the Touchscreen to control each A/V device in your household.
Send multiple commands to your A/V equipment from one button press on the Touchscreen. Turn on your amplifier, select AM/FM tuner, and have it tune into your #3 pre-programmed station - all with one button press.
Automate any Room without an HAI controller!
With the HAI HTX, a customizable OmniTouch Touchscreen, and Automation Studio you may automate any room, whether it is a home theater, How HAI IP-based products workcorporate boardroom, or a school's classrooms.
You can set up one button on the Touchscreen to close the curtains/shades, lower a screen, and turn on the appropriate A/V equipment.
When you add an HAI home control system to this set up, you can add control of the room's lighting, temperatures, and more to the same button on the Touchscreen.
How Does It Work?
An HAI HTX requires an HAI IP-based customizable OmniTouch Touchscreen and HAI Automation Studio software.
The HAI Home Theater Extender (HTX) works with an HAI IP-based customizable Touchscreen, such as the portable OmniTouch 10pe or OmniTouch 5.7e Touchscreen, to control your A/V equipment.
The HAI IP-based OmniTouch Touchscreen sends commands to the HTX, which controls A/V equipment using its serial and IR ports, as well as its SPDT relays.
The HAI HTX must be configured using HAI Automation Studio software, and there is no limit to the number of HAI HTX's that you may use in an installation.
Hardware Details
How HAI IP-based products work
The HAI HTX may be powered from the supplied 12VDC power supply that comes with the unit or via Power over Ethernet (PoE).
The HAI HTX has a built-in IR library with the IR codes for over 300,000 devices and has the ability to learn new IR codes.
The ports on the HAI HTX provide the following functions:
  • There is one bi-directional RS232 serial port available. The available baud rates on it are 300 - 115200. 

  • The two I/O ports on the HAI HTX are used for power sensing. For example, since some devices do not have a discrete Power ON/OFF IR commands, you do not want to send this command to turn on the equipment if it is already on (this would turn the equipment off). 

  • There are two Relay ports that may be used to control any device that requires a contact closure, like a motorized screen or blinds. It may also be used to source and switch 12VDC for power amplifier triggers. These Relays ports are rated at 2A @ 30 VDC. 

  • There are four IR Emitters. They use standard 3.5mm IR blaster type connectors. Note that the HAI HTX comes with 4 Flashers (emitters) that have six foot cords. 

  • There is an IR Leaner port that allows you to add custom learned IR keys to the HAI HTX. It uses an IR #5 LED
