Experience the ultimate in home automation control with Nullriver's Haiku for HAI automation controllers. Haiku combines HAI's proven home automation controllers with iOS's unbeatable user interface experience and versatility. This leverage brings the consumer a solid, user-friendly and convenient home automation interface that is as usable from anywhere in the world as it is from the comfort of your couch.
Haiku takes advantage of iOS's excellent touch interface and makes home automation easy and fun. Anything from changing the thermostat setting to controlling lights or the security system is only a few taps away. The interface is customizable using a "Favorites" tab, where any controller object can be added for quick access.
The "Status" tab gives you a quick overview of the system's status including the security status for each area, the thermostat statuses, auxiliary sensor statuses, as well as any unacknowledged messages or insecure zones. You can tap any object in any section to quickly interact with it using an instant pop-over.
The "Security" tab, conveniently organized by area allows you to view all zone statuses, bypass zones or arm/disarm the system (or set the mode for Lumina systems). The "Security" icon at the bottom of the screen displays a count of any insecure or bypassed zones.
The "Climate" tab provides a list of all configured thermostats and any auxiliary sensors, displaying their status, temperature and humidity levels. Tapping any thermostat allows you to have full control over its functionality including temperature and humidity setpoints, mode, fan and hold.
The "Control" tab allows you to control all of the configured lighting units in your home. Organizable by "Rooms", "All Units" or only "Lit Units", it is easy to locate and control a specific unit. Each room can be controlled as a group: Letting you turn its units on or off, set a scene or tap an individual unit to control it independently. Units can also be dimmed to any level or left on for a specified amount of time using a timer setting. The "Control" icon at the bottom of the screen displays a count of lit units, helping you save energy.
The "Audio" tab (displayed only on panels with an audio interface connected) allows control of all defined audio zones and sources.
The "Buttons" tab allows you to execute any macro button defined on your controller with ease.
The "Messages" tab provides a list of all system messages and allows you to display or acknowledge any message. The "Messages" icon at the bottom of the screen displays a count of unacknowledged messages to get your attention.
The "Settings" tab lets you have full control over the User Settings defined on your HAI controller. Set custom temperature, humidity, date, time, number, duration, level and days of week values with ease using the familiar iPad interface controls.
The "Cameras" tab allows viewing of an unlimited number of MJPEG cameras and has PTZ support for Panasonic, Foscam, Axis, Trendnet, Sony and Toshiba cameras.
The "Events" tab provides a list of all recent and older system events.
Haiku includes a "Keypad Mode" which is used for permanent installations of Haiku (in-wall mounts, etc.). This adds entry/exit and local alarm/disarm screen handling.
New: multiple controller support, push notifications, location-based proximity detection, Text To Speech, weather forecast display, energy cost display, HLC scene programming and automatic camera popups!
Hardware Requirements: Haiku supports all recent Ethernet-enabled HAI home automation and security controllers, including: Lumina, Lumina Pro, OmniPro II, Omni IIe and Omni LTe. Controller firmware 3.0 or later is required.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

I usually wait a bit before I write a review. I've been using this app for a little over a year now. It is a very good app. It is such a good app that it has compelled me to come here and write this review. The layout is great, the interaction is great, all the details that you need are readily available and present right in front of you at a quick glance. I've had zero problems with the connection, staying connected or any type of problems with the connection. It just works, it works great. Please don't change this.
Super App! Works Every Time!
Super application! I've been using it for over a year. I have been using it to control two different HAI units. It is very easy to switch between the units.
The user interface on the iPhone and iPad is clean, simple and easy to train people on.
I never had the app not work as expected. That's a good thing. Because I seem to always need it most after business hours to access our commercial locations.
Update: Nov. 17, 2014
What's going on, there has been no updates to this app? I was going to purchase the Haiku helper next. But not sure if the dev is no longer working this app. Only reason I've haven't moved off mu iPhones and iPads is because of this one single app. If this is the end to development of the app the company needs to alert it's customers so we have time to find alternatives. Not find out it no longer works with a new iDevice (6/6 plus, etc) or new iOS.
Anyone using it with the latest apple devices?
The developer is very responsive. I appreciate all his hard work, thank you Maksim! App keeps getting better & better. Hope to see a password lock for the app soon (should be optional to turn on).
