Designed for the OmniPro II, Omni IIe, Omni LTe, Lumina Pro, and Lumina automation systems, the OmniTouch 7 Touchscreen gives you direct access to your whole home. Two digital MEMS microphones and a 2-watt mono digital amplifier and speaker offer improved noise and echo cancellation. All power and communication is delivered through the Touchscreen’s PoE connection, and an optional 12VDC power supply can be used if you are not utilizing PoE. Firmware updates are downloadable via Ethernet.
Perfect for controlling your home security system, the OmniTouch 7 can be used to arm/disarm the system, alert emergency dispatchers, check surveillance video and more. With a clear, color screen, the OmniTouch 7 displays crisp video footage (MJPEG and JPEG) from any security camera, including IP cameras and analog cameras with an IP converter. And with the touchscreen’s quick-glance LED in the top right corner, you can easily check whether the system is armed or disarmed.
Use the OmniTouch 7 to conveniently minimize wasted energy throughout your home. With easy controls for lighting, HVAC, irrigation, ventilation and window coverings, it’s the only device you need to manage energy consumption! Swipe technology supports the use of slider bars to adjust lighting load levels from 0 to 100 percent, and you can access up to 64 thermostats, including humidity settings.
