    Thanks for the response Rick.

    My final comment was not aimed at HS or anyone on the board - rather a reflection on where we sit in the evolution of home automation so that it becomes available to the masses. Much the same as Windows and Intel has eventually done for the PC (although I'm sure many would argue that point).

    I understand that there are $$$ solutions out there.

    As good as you guys make HS - without peripheral manufacturers caring as much - HA will never cross the chasm (see Geoff Moore).

    I'm a hack at heart so I enjoy debugging this sort of stuff - I just couldn't imagine the normal Joe going through what we do just to be able to connect his thermostat to his PC.

    All the best,



      OminiPro II serial and ethernet interface problems

      All the best ,


        Try unplugging all power from the HAI Omnipro II controller for about 15 minutes or so. I had a similar problem some time ago with mine with loss of controlling the HAI. I do not have the touchscreen hub, wireless or HAI HI FI. I am only using the serial and ethernet connection. Did you have a storm with a lot of lighting. I have never paid attention to the heat being generated by the HAI Omini Pro II board so I wouldn't be able to tell what is too hot. You said you reset system rom and used PC to access system setup. Were you able to communication with HAI Omni Pro II with PC?
