rick, no, thats the latest. and its from March. Not aware of any updates since.

But, they are working on a new beta. Thought it was to be released last month.

I have the same exact issue you do.

Can Cinemar chime in on a release date of the new beta? This month its coming? Fingers crossed.

Another voice from the Ether.....

Yes, MLHAI to monitor, but not reliably control, and definitely not timely. With possible minutes passing before zones status changes are reported within ML vs immediate within HAI and other HAI monitoring options I cannot take what I see as timely or accurate.

I mentioned other HAI monitoing tools where status changes of zones, security, units, flags temps are reported immediately and accurately

pcaccess network or serial
WebLink II
HomeSeer with or without MLHS plug-in

Ditto Rick's comments and additional request for access to HAI "buttons", the internal macros that are prgramming routines within the panel. I can access via MLHS, run this button/macro and fire a complete sequence of HAI events with no external code.

My point has always been that the omni line is a strong, stand alone controller. A good interface won't try to mimic the programming, but will accurately reflect the box, its status, and access its features.

Likewise, I disagree that Ethernet is critical path. Nice, but less important than improved polling, accurate commands and accurate, timely system feedback.

Allow me to turn a unit on and off, maintain a view of its state and you have the beginnings of a good interface. Add the beauty of MainLobby, and you have excellence.

The MLHAI update is coming along nicely

Not yet close enough for a release date, but it is getting good attention.

We have faith in Dave :D

Once again, if Dave doesn't have HAI fully deployed for security, t-stats, lighting, relays, etc. will gladly run the beta through its paces.
