Hilium Pty Ltd, the owner of The Home Automation Co. develops RTI Drivers for home automation related applications. These drivers are commercially available to RTI Integrators.
Each of the drivers may be downloaded from this website and will operate for a trial period of 1 hour from processor reboot or project transfer.
Ness D8/16XD Driver. The Ness D8/16XD family of security alarm panels lead the Australian security industry. The driver allows for full control of, and status feedback from, the Ness D8/16XD alarm panel over RS232 or Ethernet. “Installer” experience with the Ness D8/16XD alarm is required. The driver has been tested using 1) an RS232 directly connected to RTI XP-3; and 2) over ethernet using Global Cache iTach Flex IP Version IP to RS232 converter; and Elk IP232 IP to RS232 converter. The bundle below includes RTI Panel controllers for iPhone 5, 8, and X.
Somfy RS485 RTS Driver. This driver greatly simplifies use of up to 4 x Somfy (16 Channel) RS485 RTS Transmitters to provide open, close, stop, favourite, save favourite, dim, tilt, program mode and channel set functions. It allows for control of the Somfy RS485 RTS Transmitter over RS232 or Ethernet. The driver has been tested using 1) a Generic RS232 to RS485 converter directly connected to RTI XP-3; 2) over ethernet using Global Cache iTach Flex IP Version IP to RS232 converter and a generic RS232 to RS485 converter; and 3) a Generic RS485 to Ethernet (IP) Converter.
Global Cache IR & Serial Driver. This driver simplifies use of the Global Cache iTach Flex series and similar interface devices for up to 200 IR/Serial Commands. Commands are separated into 4 groups of 50 for ease of use. Allows for example, Group 1 for a TV, Group 2 for a Apple TV. This driver has been tested using infrared (IR) output and RS232 output. It will also send RS232 outputs using generic IP to RS232 devices.
Button SysVar Events Driver. This driver enhances the capability of other RTI drivers by providing a range of events based on button press actions and changes to external (other drivers’) system variables. Up to 50 external variables can be monitored each with a corresponding button. This amongst other uses allows a button press to fully control a dimmable lighting load. For example, short press can toggle on/off; long press can dim up or dim down based on what the load/dimmer did last (by keeping track of the previous change to the external variable); and a double press can turn a dimmer to say 100%. Even where the most recent change was initiated from outside the RTI system as long as feedback has been received by the RTI processor.
Timer Cascade Driver. This driver lets your clients set and control up to 16 interval timers each with ‘timer start’ and ‘timer stop’ events to for example control irrigation pumps, or lights etc. Each timer can be set for periods of 1 minute to 23:59 hours:minutes +/- 30s. The timers can be cascaded to create a waterfall of events with a configurable overlap or delay between each cascading timer. The bundle below includes an RTI Panel controller for iPad.
