Leviton UPB Powerline Interface Module (PIM) & Cable (Open Box)
Interface UPB To Your Automation System
The UPB Powerline Interface Module (PIM) & Cable connects your lighting system to a UPB-compatible home control system or to a computer, which can then control your UPB lights. The Leviton UPB Powerline Interface Module comes with a cable for connecting the PIM to a serial port on an Lumina, Lumina Pro, Omni LTe, Omni IIe or OmniPro II home control system. The UPB PIM module to computer cable is used to connect the PIM to a computerâ€™s standard DB-9 serial port for use with UPB UPStart Configuration software. The status light on the PIM module will blink red when it transmits a UPB signal on the powerline and it will blink green when it receives a valid UPB signal on the powerline.
Note: It is normal for this PIM module to make a slight buzzing sound during operation.
When you add an Omni or a Lumina home control system to your lighting system, you gain the ability to change your light settings by the time of day, set schedule, by the triggering of events (including motion), via a telephone call, Touchscreen, or by a computer connected to the Internet. When a home control system is installed, a Scene Switch button may be programmed to run a series of commands, such as setting lighting levels and changing drapery levels.
UPB Home Lighting Control Simplified!
Previously known as HAI (Home Automation, Inc.), the Leviton Security & Automation lighting controls allow you to experience all of the benefits of a sophisticated lighting control system that is ideal for both new homes as well as retrofit installations. Lighting control can enhance the enjoyment and value of your home, add security for peace of mind, and contribute to savings on your energy bill. Levitonâ€™s UPB lighting products are a modular system, so you can easily add rooms or lights anytime, updating as your needs change. There is no need to run new wires as long as you have standard residential wiring. For retrofits or expansion, simply replace the existing light switch with a UPB switch.
