HAI Hi-Fi2 - v 8.0.1
The HAI Hi-Fi2 is a wall mounted multiroom system with an optional metal enclosure. There are two systems: the 8x8 system offers 8 sources with 8 full zones of class D amplification at 25W per channel. This can be expanded to 16 zones with the optional zone extender. The 4x4 system has 4 sources and 4 zones (and cannot be extended). Drivers are included in the package for both versions.
At Extra Vegetables we are all about extending the choices available to Control4 dealers and we feel that the Hi-Fi2's size, shape and configuration makes it an interesting and useful alternative.
But when you add in the HAI keypads to the mix things get really interesting. These simple source selection and volume control keypads have a small OLED screen at the top. The clever bit is that our driver allows you to display metadata from the Control4 system on these keypads. It is really quite simple to show an Artist name and Song Title on these keypads with minimal Control4 programming.
The HAI Hi-Fi2 driver is IP based - so it's really simple to install.
The driver does not require a OMNI Home Control System and provides no integration with an OMNI system. The driver is designed simply to integrate the stand-alone Hi-Fi2 system with Control4. However a OMNI-Lumina driver is also available here
Supported Control4 operating systems
Compatible with Control4 OS 2.x and above ONLY
Control4 Processor Requirements
HC250 can be used on smaller systems. Please check Control4's recommended processor requirements for your specific project.
We'd like to thank HAI and Aldous systems for the loan of the Hi-Fi2 we used to write the driver.
This driver is an independent commercial release by Extra Vegetables Ltd. It is not authorized or supported by Control4. Extra Vegetables fully support the driver through its authorized dealer network.
