Leviton integrates BitWise and Omni automation platforms
By Renée Francoeur
August 24, 2015 – Leviton recently announced the free integration of Omni security & automation control systems into BitWise BC1, BC2 and BC4 audio/visual control systems. This allows BitWise customers to create custom interfaces for their OmniTouch 7 touchscreens, utilizing new graphical elements such as icons and backgrounds for free.
The new BitWise platform features drag and drop commands and feedback, as well as built-in GUI content for Omni devices, allowing users to control security and HVAC systems, lighting, audio zones, locks, and buttons or macros.
This integration also allows BitWise customers to incorporate 2N Helios intercom door stations, providing communication from a gate or front door to any OmniTouch 7 touchscreen on the property. For integrators wishing to incorporate Leviton Omni-Bus DIN Rail lighting controls, a new free module, complete with a GUI template, exists on the BitWise Store.
To download the OmniTouch 7 graphical elements, installers should sign up for the BitWise Store and download the “HTX2” GUI template. Custom interfaces combining BitWise and Omni eco-system can be created using Project Editor, the free BitWise software.
