  • Interface to HAI OmniPro2

    What is the proper serial cable pinout to interface my HS PC to my HAI panel

    DB9 to RJ11 pinout

    Also what "function" Should I configure the HAI serial port for?


    Thank you

    A serial cable for the existing HS software.

    OmniPro II has 3 serial ports (J1-J3) built onto the controller (labeled Serial1 to Serial3). The interface is a modular connector located in the upper left corner of the controller. It uses either the Omni-Link or Pro-Link Protocol for connections. To access a serial port, use the HAI Model 21A05-2 Serial Cable Kit.
    I purchased mine. You can make your own cable too.

    I have my OPII set up with the Omni-Link Protocol. I am not sure if the newer HS HAI beta Plugin talks Pro-link as I have never tried it. (don't think so though).

    I am using the older plugin as the newer one (with more features) made my thermostat go nuts (very bad WAF). That said I can control the thermostat, X10, UPB and Z-Wave PIMs plugged into the HAI OPII. I can also see the additional HAI Temp/Humidity modules plugged in. I do not see the Russound that is plugged in.

      Got a connection !! Thank you


      However i cant see anything but security zones with no names

      Cant see any "Units" HomeSeer has not updated the plug in to match the latest HAI OPII firmware and has no plans to do so


      Thank you for your reply

        For the security zones you have to download the names of each zone from the panel.

        The same for the "Units".

        You are correct.

          Thank you Pete, Having weird issues. HS only downloaded the names for the first 16 zones
          however my problem is that i have no zone status, HomeSeer is seeing all the zones as secure when some are not. Homeseer can track the arming status, control units, control arming and disarming but that's about it. Any ideas??


          Thank you
