Discrete 3-Input/2-Output Module
Remote Sensing & Control of Low-voltage and Lighting Scene-links
Model UMI is a plug-in module designed to sense the status
of low-voltage and contact closure inputs and transmit
scene-links to control high voltage loads such as lights,
gates, pump/fan motors and more. It can receive scene-links
and control the operation of low-power actuators. The
module communicates using highly-reliable Universal
Powerline Bus (UPB) technology. UPB devices such as
Model UMI are configured with UPStart (PC) software and
easily integrated to provide a flexible, low cost alternative to
hardwired or RF home automation strategies.
Model UMI sends lighting scene links, controlling 1 to 250
UPB switches/devices, upon sensing such inputs as alarm
panel trigger outputs, RF receiver outputs, driveway
sensors, a ringing telephone or doorbell, or for monitoring
alarm switches on doors and windows, even audio signals
from a sound system. The outputs deliver on/off control for
garage door openers, electric fireplace actuators, sprinkler
valves and other low-voltage/power input devices such as
door strikes and central vacuum controls. Installation is
simple: the module is plugged into a standard 120 VAC
outlet and the devices to be monitored / controlled are wired
into a terminal block on the bottom of the module. Scene-
links can be assigned to the inputs (high and low) to
automate control of other circuit loads in the home (e.g.
garage door opens and lights come on). A non-controlled
120 VAC outlet is also provided on the face of the module.
Connected devices can operate manually using scene-links
from any UPB switch/controller or automatically via PC.
