HAI and Lightolier is a product combination that is reliable, fast, flexible and 2-way, a tough combination to beat for an integrated whole house scene-based lighting solution. Thomas Morgan Worthington University. By Thomas Morgan, Vice President Worthington University HAI and Lightolier is a product combination that is reliable, fast, flexible and 2-way, a tough combination to beat for an integrated whole house scene-based lighting solution.
Compose (Lightolier) – HomeSeer Message Board
When Lightolier Compose was first released, Worthington Distribution embraced the system fully because of the new approaches it took toward PLC lighting. We recognized the power of a complete lighting system solution; however, we also saw that Compose could be taken to a whole new level if it was integrated with a powerful whole com;ose automation controller like HAI.
Worthington Distribution made the introduction between the companies and provided a white paper overview of how both companies could benefit through new market opportunities if their products worked together. The results have been a marvelous success and a true testament for how companies can benefit by working together. Starting in revision 2.

This also marked the beginning of HAI’s support for complete 2-way PLC communication that includes automatically updating the status of devices as they are controlled over the power line. The primary difference between Compose and other PLC ckmpose controllers is Compose is a complete lighting system that addresses interfaces, scenes, and data integrity. For a complete Compose system three components are required: Dimmers and switches provide individual load control.
Keypads provide a simple interface for a room, multiple rooms, and whole house lighting control. The firewall provides complete management of data transmission and noise within the PLC system. The primary oightolier of Compose lighting are reliability, expandability, and a scene lighting approach. A scene lighting approach eliminates the need for a controller to send numerous individual load commands. Control of a scene’s appearance is instead placed in the hands of the lightoolier, not the programmer.
A scene can composr be recalled with a single command. This is a welcome change for the professional integrator or lighting architect. The trick with implementing Compose was to maintain consistency with HAI’s current structure. Luckily, after a couple of meetings to fully understand Compose, the system integrated beautifully. No ‘data’ conductors need to be run from the HAI to the firewall.
Because the firewall ensures the PLC data is distributed throughout the system, the HAI is able to track system communication and issue Compose commands.
The integration could not be tighter if HAI designed both systems! Once the wiring lightolief in place, the HAI must be told which code Compose is using.
The firewall was built specifically for use with Compose and standard X commands. Commands such as extended code are not compatible with Compose. This does not preclude an installer from using standard PLC devices like outlets. Setting a House Code to Compose format.
Sending Compose commands is a snap. Once Compose format is chosen, new ‘Scene’ options appear in the ‘Control’ menu for all units assigned to the selected house code. It could not be easier. New Scene options automatically appear when a device is set to Compose.
As of firmware revision 2. While it is nice to see this on keypads, this really becomes helpful when using lightolie interfaces like Web Link II or touch screen solutions like OmniTouch, Home Logic, or CorAccess. Showing the true status of a room has been an objective of PLC since its inception.
The HAI integration with Compose makes this possible with zero additional programming. HAI automatically tracks Compose devices. When an installer wants to run a routine in the controller based on activity in the Compose system, he is required to understand that there are two different scenarios that are programmed differently. For each programming action it must be decided if the action is the HAI controller sending a command or if it is the HAI watching for a command on the power line.
The programmer can watch for one event or the other. If the routine is to execute when HAI issues the command, or if the command is received, then use 2 programming lines and watch for both events. HAI separated these two events on purpose; it lightoljer far more options and reduces the likelihood for unexpected system events.
This allows the user to choose if they want the lightolir to run based on received status changes not always desirable. Running events based on the HAI sending a command.
Using this feature the programmer can perform routines based on either the user executing any scene On state or based on the user pressing a specific scene button. HAI covered all of the bases.
HAI allows the programmer to define if they want to watch for an On state or a specific scene. An On state would be any of the 5 scenes. This opens up many options for the programmer. If the user pressed the On button on the CP5 keypad, both would run. Receiving PLC commands can watch for a Unit state or a specific command. The HAI driver has been in the field for more then 2 years and is rock solid.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of installations utilizing this solution every day. Compose has solved many PLC dilemmas by approaching lighting as a complete system instead of individual nodes controlled by a central system.
The scenes react quickly without the delay found in traditional PLC systems. Add a lightolire screen or web interface in a second. The integration is truly plug and play.
