Hello
Do the RTI processors support "if then" logic?

So in this case..
RTI sees the Alarm system contact when the front door is open so send a command to lutron lights to turn on a few lights and send command to sonos to play some music..

Is it possible?

I really liked the easy to program HAI OMNI for many years however now it seems likes it's nearly a dead product

Yes. They are called events and can be triggered by drivers, variables, time, etc.

Events, flags, sensors and Drivers can be utilized to create if/then events. Events can be triggered off a certain time of day, or something that exists in the devices driver. For example, if the driver has a system event variable that says "when zone is turned on" you can trigger a macro, command or string of commands whenever that zone is turned on. Most drivers have system based events; some have extensive system based events.

With flags, you can set a flag to a Boolean value and then test that flag in order to perform a function. For example, if the TV_IS_ON flag = Y then don't wait 10 seconds to send an input. Pretty typical and common; URC calls this "variables".

With sensors, you can determine the power, video, audio and other states and base an action on that. For example, if you have an audio sensor hooked up to your SONOS CONNECT, you can have the processor turn on the receiver every time the sensor detects audio on the SONOS connect. This would allow you to use the SONOS app exclusively without using a remote control to turn on the receiver.

Certain utility drivers are written in order to test one or more flags, variables, driver output, etc. and base events based on that. They offer more comprehensive if/then and can take a combination of factors present and base a command or macro on that. For example, if the current weather temperature outside is < 32 and the current temperature inside is < 65 degrees, do THIS.

You can also base events on contact closure, voltage, and other ways with RTI's processors. There are MANY ways to create and if/then.

Hope this helps,
Vincent

Thanks Vince! I hope all is well brother.
While I have Mr RTI's attention, can I ask about your prefered Alarm system to integrate into a new RTI system? I am very proficient in HAI installation and programming but I am told Honeywell alarms seem to be a good companion??

Thank you! I hope all is well with you as well.

They both work pretty well. (HAI and Honeywell). With Honeywell a lot depends on how you are controlling it (there are a couple of drivers) and which specific panel you are using. And then, you need to pay careful attention to the tech notes on how to set it up. It's pretty finicky about certain settings. GE, Elk, DSC work well (model specific). Be sure to check the driver, driver notes and forum for specific information. Once you choose one I would be happy to help if you need it.

Yes plus you can add the relay for a motion sensor inside so then you can logic base know whether they are coming or going based on which relay was triggered last. But it's much easier than that with the Honeywell driver
