1. HAI Lighting Control
1.1. Gen III UPB Features and Improvements

Generation III HLC products, which have been shipping from HAI since early December 2011 (NOTE: Date code of 43/11 or later indicates G3 products), add a number of new features and improvements that greatly enhance the product line. Gen III products can be easily identified by the unique G3 sticker that is located on both the packaging and back of the device, or by their LED blink pattern – you can also use UPStart to perform a Network Discovery and view the firmware versions. A summary of the features and improvements are:

FEATURES:

Auto Shut-Off Feature

  • The Timeout is configurable from 1 – 240 minutes (0 = feature disabled).
  • Configurable only thru Upstart.
  • Double-tap of top rocker overrides auto shut-off. This can be enabled or disabled.
  • Anytime a button is pressed (single tap, double tap, hold and release), this restarts the timer if the timer is already running.
  • A light level report can be sent when timeout expires.
  • A UPB command can be sent on a specific link when timeout expires
  • The status LED flashes purple at a 50% duty cycle while auto shut-off timer is running.  Note: If the configured LED option is always off, the LED will remain off during the timeout period.
  • Setup mode and blink mode take precedence over auto shut-off. If the auto shut-off timer is running, and then either setup mode or blink mode occurs, the auto shut-off timer will be reset and disabled until setup or blink mode expire.

Configuring Dimmer/Non-Dimmer at Rocker

  • While in setup mode, push the top rocker 3 times to set as a dimmer.
  • While in setup mode, push the bottom rocker 3 times to set as a non-dimmer.
  • The device will exit setup mode, and flash the load for confirmation

Dimming

  • Configurable minimum dimming level between 10% - 90%
  • When dimming by holding bottom rocker, the lowest light level that can be reached is the configured minimum dimming level (10 – 90%). The load will not turn off if the bottom rocker is continuously held.

Miscellaneous

  • Default fade rate is 3.3seconds, which gives a smoother feel when dimming the CFL load.  Default fade rate for single click top rocker (different than regular default fade rate mentioned above) will be 3.3seconds. This is different than the regular dimmer, which has a default fade rate for single click top rocker of 0.8 seconds.
  • Will not support ‘Unused’ option for configured Rocker Switch single / double clicks.  Upstart will be modified so ‘Unused’ does not appear as an option. 
  • Default blink time is 1 second due to start-up delay found in some dimmable CFL bulbs. Blink times below 1 second don’t work that well.

IMPROVEMENTS:

  1. Increased Noise Immunity/Frequency Performance – Gen III products have been refined to provide a greater tolerance to powerline noise in general. Prior generations would be susceptible to some emerging powerline technologies that could be recognized as noise, as well as others that in some rare cases could produce a flickering effect.
  2. Last State Power Fail – Gen III products have been hard-coded to power on to the “last known state” in the event of a power failure, thus reducing the possibility that after a power failure, some or all of the HLC deices would power up in the “on” mode.
1.2. Can Gen III HLC products be identified by their firmware version?

1.3. How can I determine if I have Gen1 or Gen2 HLC products?
Question:

How can I determine if I have Gen1 or Gen2 HLC products?


Answer:

The firmware version determines Gen1/Gen2 devices.  Using the UPStart software, the firmware version can be found on the ID tab of the switch properties. 

  1. Dimmers/Non-Dimmers/Relays:
    1. 01.01 = Gen1
    2. 01.02 = Gen 2
  2. Scene Switch:
    1. 01.01 = Gen1 w/o IR
    2. 01.02 = Gen1 w/IR
    3. 01.03 = Gen2 w/IR
  3. House Status Switches:
    1. 01.01 = Gen1
    2. 01.02 = Gen2

.

1.4. Can I determine the firmware version of an HLC product without using UPStart software?
Question: Can I determine the firmware version of an HLC product without using UPStart software?


Answer:
Yes, you can identify Leviton UPB device firmware versions by observing the LED's.

For UPB devices that have a single bi-color red/blue LED, the firmware
version is indicated at device power-up by a blink pattern on the
LED. Refer to the following table to match the LED blink pattern 
to the associated firmware version number:
 
Firmware Version Power-Up LED Blink Pattern
1.01 red red red blue purple blue
1.02 red red blue red purple blue
1.03 red red blue blue purple blue
1.04 red blue red red purple blue
1.05 red blue red blue purple blue
1.06 red blue blue red purple blue
1.07 red blue blue blue purple blue
1.08 blue red red red purple blue
1.09 blue red red blue purple blue
1.10 blue red blue red purple blue
1.11 blue red blue blue purple blue
1.12 blue blue red red purple blue
1.13 blue blue red blue purple blue
1.14 blue blue blue red purple blue
1.15 blue blue blue blue purple blue

For the 38A00-1 6-Button Scene Switch, certain buttons illuminate simultaneously
at power-up in a pattern that indicates the firmware version, as follows:

1.6. Applying HAI Lighting Control (HLC)

Application:

            This document will provide step-by-step detail to applying HLC to a Leviton Automation System.

Equipment:

  1. This application applies to the Omni LT, Omni LTe, Omni II, Omni IIe, Omni Pro II, Lumina, and Lumina Pro controllers, with firmware Version 2.9 or later. NOTE: This application is not compatible with the older Omni/Omni Pro series of controllers.
  2. HLC PIM (p/n – 36A00-1)
  3. Phase Coupler (p/n – 39A00-1) – Leviton recommends using a phase coupler or split phase repeater(s) in every application. Three phase repeaters should be used as appropriate - one per installation.
  4. HLC devices – dimmers, non-dimmers, Scene and House Status switches controllers.
  5. Console – you can use a standard push-button (33A00).
  6. PC Access Software 1105W (optional) – Although all setup requirements can be performed from a console, the use of PC Access can be used to quicken the overall setup process. .
  7. PIM-to-PC Converter (p/n - 36A05-1/2) – This is an optional component that would be used if the 10A17-1 were used to control the lighting.

Installation:

  1. Install HLC devices (switches, room, and house controllers) in desired locations, according to their installation instructions.
  2. Plug HLC PIM into electrical outlet near the Leviton controller.
  3. Connect the supplied cable to PIM and desired serial port on the Leviton controller:
    1. Cable must be a six-conductor, straight-through model.
    2. If connection causes the RX (RCV on 10A17-1) LED to light up solid, the PIM is in “pulse” mode and must be manually converted to “message” mode by pressing the Program button 5 times (the LED on the PIM should begin to blink green), then pressing the Program button 10 times (the LED should begin to blink red), and then pressing the Program button 1 time (the LED should change to the green color). The RX LED should now be off on the controller.

Setup:

All of the following steps can be performed from a console or PC Access:

  1. Go to Setup>>Installer>>Expansion, and set the desired “Serial Function” (on-board serial port) or “Module # “(if using the 10A17-1) to UPB.
    1. NOTE 1: You can not have more than 1 item selected as UPB.
    2. NOTE 2: By default, all controllers (except the LT), with firmware Version 2.11 or later, have Serial 3 Function set to UPB.
  2. Go to Setup>>Installer>>Control, and set the desired UPB Network “Address” and “Password”.
  3. Go to Setup>>Miscellaneous>>Control, and set the desired House Codes to “HAI Lighting”.
    1. NOTE: By default, all House Codes are set to “HAI Lighting” in controllers with firmware Version 2.11 and later.
  4. Go to Setup>>Names>>Units and name each HLC device as desired.
    1. NOTE 1: The first unit of each room must be named, regardless of whether or not a room controller will be physically installed/configured.
    2. NOTE 2: Switches and House Status Switches can not be configured as the first unit in a room. The first unit of each room is dedicated for Scene Switches only.
    3. NOTE 3: If an OmniTouch will be used to configure the HLC devices, temporarily name all House Status switches used. Once all devices have been configured, remove/delete the names assigned to house controllers.
  5. If using PC Access, perform a “Write to Controller”.

Configuration:

  1. Console Configuration:
    1. Place an HLC device into Setup mode:

                                                             a.      Switch – Press rocker 5 times – the load should blink once and the LED on the switch should begin blinking.

                                                            b.      Scene Switch – Simultaneously press and hold the On and Off buttons for 2 seconds – all LED’s on the room controller should begin blinking.

                                                             c.      House Status Switch – Simultaneously press and hold the 1 and 8 buttons for 2 seconds – all 8 LED’s should begin blinking.

    1. On the console, press 6 (status), 1 (Control), scroll through the list of names until you find the desired device name, and press the “#” key twice.

a.       NOTE: An alternative method, if you know the unit number, would be to press 6 (Status), 1 (Control), the Unit #, and then press the “#” key 3 times.

    1. The display should show the progress of the configuration and display COMPLETED when finished.
    2. Follow the above procedure for each device until complete.
    3. After all HLC devices have been configured, remember to delete the names of all House Controllers.
  1. OmniTouch Configuration (3.9 and 5.7 only):
    1. Place an HLC device into Setup mode.
    2. On the OmniTouch, press the Control icon – this will produce a display of all named units.

a.       NOTE: Starting with firmware Version 2.12, only Scene Switches will be listed. If configuring switches, you must select the room controller, and then press the “GOTO” button to see a list of unit names for switches and house controllers.

    1. Select the desired device name from the list – this will produce a control page for the desired device.
    2. Press the “Config” button – the display should show the progress of the configuration and display COMPLETED when finished.
    3. Repeat the above procedures for each device until complete.
    4. After all HLC devices have been configured, remember to delete the names of all House Status Switches.
  1. PC Access Configuration (Version 3.2.0.530 or later):
    1. Establish a connection to the Leviton Security and Automation  controller.
    2. From the Status tab, click on Units.
    3. Place an HLC device in Setup mode.
    4. In PC Access, “right-click” on the desired unit and select “Configure HLC Device”.
    5. Repeat the above procedure for each remaining device.
    6. After all HLC devices have been configured, remember to delete the names of all House Status Switches
1.7. Using UPB Lighting Format
Question: Can I configure HLC devices using the UPB lighting format?

Answer:

Yes, but you would lose the following features:

 

  1. Status Tracking – The tracking of device status would no longer be automatic, although you could create programming logic to accomplish this task.
  2. LED Tracking – You would have to create programming or use Upstart to have LED activity follow/track lighting.
  3. OmniTouch Room Display – You would no longer have the rooms displayed on an OmniTouch.
  4. All On/Off – This feature is not supported in a UPB environment, although a combination of Upstart configuration and controller programming could create the same effect.
  5. The scene and house status switch are no longer functional like in the HLC environment and have to be programmed using UPStart or PC Access.
1.8. Identifying 3-Way Lighting Applications

The purpose of this document is to clarify proper/adequate wiring requirements for applicable 3-way lighting configurations when using Leviton UPB Lighting products. Since there are multiple ways to wire for 3-way lighting applications in the electrical industry, this article should provide insight for proper application.

For the purpose of clarification, HAI refers to the following terminology:

  1. Master Switch – Leviton refers to all dimmers, non-dimmers, and relay switches as “master” switches. These switches must be installed in the location where the lighting “load” (fixture) is wired to.
  2. Slave Switch – Leviton refers to the 37A00-1 auxiliary switch as a slave device. It has no connection to the lighting load and also has no configuration ability by itself.
  3. Control – Leviton dimmers, non-dimmers, relay and auxiliary switches have a wire for 3-way lighting applications, which is referred to as a Control wire. In some instances, this wire is also referred to as the traveler, and is used to connect one or more slave (auxiliary) switches to a master (dimmer, non-dimmer, or relay) switch. This conductor must not be connected to line or load voltage, as it is only used to provide signal notification between the master and slave switches.
  4. Line – This is the wire coming from the electrical panel and is also referred to as “hot”. This wire is also required at all switch locations in a 3-way application.
  5. Neutral – This wire should originate from the electrical panel and is considered the “companion” to the line wire. A neutral should not be confused with (and can not replace) a ground and is required at all master switch locations. It is recommended for auxiliary switches, but not “required”.
  6. Load – this wire is what provides voltage to the actual light fixture. This wire is required at the master location and can not be connected to a slave switch.
  7. Ground – This wire is used to ground the switch to an appropriate electrical ground within the gang box. This wire can not be used to replace the neutral in master switch locations, but can be used in place of the neutral for auxiliary switches (for LED control).

If HLC is being installed to replace an existing 3-way application, there “should” be existing wiring in place to suffice for use of HLC products. The following checks can be performed by an electrician:

  1. Identify the wiring within the existing switch locations.
  2. The Leviton master switch (dimmer, non-dimmer, or relay) will be installed in the location where the existing line, load, and neutral reside. For 3-way control, a control (traveler) wire must also exist.
  3. The Leviton slave switch will be installed in the location where the line and control wires exist.
  4. If “load” wires exist in all locations for the proposed 3-way application, they must not be used (capped off) for connection on slave (auxiliary) switches.
  5. If there is no “neutral” in the master/load location, Leviton UPB lighting can not be used.

If HLC is being installed in a new construction and a 3-way application is desired, the following are required:

  1. Master switch locations must have the following wiring connections available:
    1. Line
    2. Neutral
    3. Load
    4. Control
  2. Slave switch locations must have the following wiring connections available:
    1. Line
    2. Control
    3. Neutral/Ground (NOTE: Not required for functionality, but one or the other required for LED illumination.
1.9. Using Upstart Software

Application:

This article will cover some general tips and guidelines for using Upstart software in conjunction with HLC, whether using lighting products (HLC or 3rd party UPB) or the "HAI Lighting Control" scheme.  The intent is to provide information on the most commonly used features, as they relate to Leviton automation control.  For a more complete understanding or advanced use of the software, you should refer to the Upstart User Guide.


Equipment:

Switches - HLC or 3rd party UPB that have already been installed

UPB Powerline Interface Module (PIM)

36A05-2 PIM-to-PC Converter (optional) - not required if using non-Leviton PIM

Computer

USB-to-Serial Converter (optional) - required if computer does not have a serial port.

Upstart Software

 

 

Setup:

  1. Plug the PIM into an electrical outlet.

 

  1. Connect the PIM to the PC.
    1. NOTE 1: When using the Leviton PIM, you would use the 36A05-2 for this connection.
    2. NOTE 2: If a "USB-to-Serial" converter is required, Leviton recommends the KeySpan model USA-19H.

Operation:

  1. Start the Upstart software - the software will open and immediately present you with a dialogue box, with the following four options:

 

    1. Open an existing network file - this option would be used if you have pre-existing files.
    2. Create a new network file starting with choosing a network id and password - this option would be used when you are creating the network for a stand-a-lone application or programming 3rd party UPB devices.
    3. Create a new network file that already matches an already installed network - this option would be used when you already have a network created.  If you are using a Leviton automation controller and have already installed/setup your lighting, this would be the best option.
    4. Use UPStart on my own - exactly as stated.  Refer to the User Guide for more details.

 

  1. PIM Check - after the selection above, the software will perform a search/check for the PIM.  Upon first use, it is possible to receive an error stating the PIM could not be found.  This occurs when either the Com Port selected for the PIM (default is Com 1) does not match the Com Port on the computer, or when the Com Port selected is already in use by another software application.  PC Access software running (if used) can often the problem.  If encountered, perform the following:

 

    1. OK the error.
    2. Click on Tools, select UPB Interface Device, and then Select.
    3. Set the Interface type (Leviton PIM would be Powerline Interface module) and Com Port.
    4. Click on OK - the PIM should be recognized now.
    5. Close and restart the software.

 

  1. Based on your initial application choice, you will perform the following to see/find your UPB devices - if you chose:

 

    1. Open an existing network file - with this option, all of the switches that are in that file will be displayed.
    2. Create a new network file starting with choosing a network id and password - you will be presented with a screen to input the Network Name, Network ID, and Password.  After setting these parameters and clicking on OK, you can begin adding devices by clicking on Add and selecting Device.
    3. Create a new network file that already matches an already installed network - this selection will deliver a "Load Existing Network" dialogue.  Simply put any UPB device in setup mode (according to the device instructions) and click on OK - the software will now find and read all devices into the file.

 

  1. After all switches have been found or added, you can access the properties of each device by "double-clicking" on the device.  The most commonly used features are:

 

    1. ID Tab - shows the Network, Room, and device names, as well as ID and device type.
    2. Receive Components Tab - shows what links are already learned, along with their attributes.  This also where you can add links for more enhanced lighting control.
    3. Transmit Components Tab - shows information about what links are transmitted, along with their attributes.  When working with an already established network, these settings should not be changed without advanced knowledge.
    4. Options Tab - allows control of LED, default Fade Rate, and Dimming (enable or not enabled) Configured Top Rocker Switch Action and Bottom Rocker Switch Action (adjust light levels and fade rates).
    5. Test Tab - allows you to test the attributes of the device.
    6. Communications Test Tab - allows you to test for signal strength and noise at the device and PIM.
    7. Read Device Button - copies device information into the file.
    8. Program Device Button - copies programming from file into device.
    9. Open Link Name Table Button - this button is on both the "Receive Components" and "Transmit Components" tabs.  This allows you to add, activate, and deactivate links.

1.11. Phase Coupler Type
Question: Is the Leviton phase coupler a passive or active type?


Answer: The Leviton Phase Coupler (p/n – 39A00-1) is considered a passive type.
1.12. Phase Coupler Current Draw
Question:

Does the Leviton 39A00-1 Phase Coupler draw any current?



Answer:

Yes. The phase coupler draws both reactive and real amps. The reactive amps of our phase coupler are out of phase with the line voltage, and as a result, do not contribute to the power drawn. Essentially, a residential power meter reading will not increase because of reactive amps. The meter only sees real amps. Our phase coupler draws about 1.1 reactive amps.

Real amps are in phase with the line voltage. Because of the red LED on the phase coupler, it draws about 0.5mA of real amps.

1.13. Why does my lighting stop working after using Upstart software?
Question: Why does my lighting stop working after using Upstart software?


Answer:

When your lighting controls fail to operate after using the Upstart software, you can check the following:

  1. PIM Mode - Leviton controllers require the PIM be in Message Mode for operation/control.  When a PIM is connected to a computer and the Upstart software is used, the PIM is converted to Pulse Mode.  Simply resetting the PIM to Message Mode by pressing the Program button 5 times (green blinking LED), 10 times (red blinking LED) and 1 time (solid amber) should resolve this problem.
  2. Incorrect Network ID/Password - Depending on how Upstart is deployed, it is possible that the lighting switches could have their network information rewritten internally.  When creating an Upstart file for an existing network, you should select "Create a file that matches an already installed network" selection from the main menu.
  3. Device ID - When devices are configured, they are assigned a Device ID - this ID is directly related to the Unit assignments in the Leviton controller (example: Device ID 1 = Unit 1 in the Leviton controller)
1.14. Lamp Module Configuration Fails
Question:

Why does my new 59A00-1 Lamp Module and/or 60A00-1 Appliance Module fail during configuration when using an Omni or Lumina controller?



Answer: The lamp and appliance module configurations were added to controllers in firmware version 2.15 firmware – if using an older version of firmware, the configuration will appear to fail.  Updating the firmware in the automation controller will resolve this problem.
1.15. Basic UPB/HLC Troubleshooting

Basic Setup:

 

  1. What version firmware – 2.6 for third party, 2.10 for HLC.  NOTE: Support for HLC was added in version 2.9 – the reason for the reference to 2.10 is an accounting for a modification added to the firmware.
  2. Device type – HLC or other.
  3. Configuration – controller or Upstart.
  4. Setup>>Names>>Units - all desired units must be named NOTE: When using HAI lighting Control, the first unit of each room "must" be named, whether a Scene Switch is installed or not.
  5. Setup>>Miscellaneous – House Code set to UPB or HAI Lighting
  6. Setup>>Installer>>Control – Network ID and Password set properly
  7. Setup>>Installer>>Expansion – verify proper Module/Serial function set to UPB  NOTE: Double-check that there are no duplicate UPB entries.

 

Hardware Check:

 

  1. PIM type – HLC or other
  2. Connection type – on-board RS-232 or 10A17-1.  NOTE: When using non-HAI PIM, it can only be connected to 10A17-1.
  3. Adapter type (if using 10A17-1) – HAI (36A05-2) or other

 

Physical/Audible Inspection:

 

  1. Status LED (10A17-1) – should blink once per second
  2. RX and TX LED’s – should blink when commands are sent/received.  NOTE: If the RX LED is solid red, it would indicate that either the PIM is in “Pulse” mode or the wiring connection between controller and PIM is bad.
  3. PIM LED – should be amber when not active and red/amber flicker when active.
  4. PIM buzz – the PIM should noticeably buzz during activity.

 

Other Checks for Lack of Performance:

 

  1. Other non-HLC Dimmers, especially Lutron – if installed, temporarily isolate/remove and re-test HLC.
  2. Phase Coupler – check Revision Sticker
  3. Three Phase vs. Two Phase
  4. Switch Buzz – switches will have an ever-so-faint buzz when not actively responding to a command.  A louder buzz can be heard when a switch is in active use.
1.16. General Link Assignments
Question: Hoes does Leviton assign links in an HAI Lighting Control environment?


Answer:
  1. Links 1-186 – assigned to any load or scene switch configured in Rooms 1-31, respectively (NOTE: Links 187-192 would be applied to any load or scene switch configured to Units 249 and 250).
  2. Links 193-224 – assigned to any house status switch configured properly to function as a house status switch in Rooms 1-31, respectively.
  3. Links 241 and 242 – assigned to the Top/Bottom rockers on every switch.
  4. Links 243-250 – assigned to any house status switch configured to function as a macro executer.
  5. Links 225-240 – free for use as programmed.

1.18. Using a House Status Switch to Control Individual Light Loads

Discussion:

In some applications, where the number of lights in a room would require a large bank of switches, a homeowner may not want a wall of switches, but still desire individual load control.  This application note will provide details on how to provide individual load control for eight switches using a House Status Switch (38A00-2).


Equipment:

Leviton Controller – LT, Omni LTe Omni II, Omni IIe, Omni Pro II, Lumina, or Lumina Pro

Leviton Console – LCD or legacy OmniTouch

HLC Switches (8) – dimmer, non-dimmer, or relay

House Status Switch (38A00-2)

Leviton PIM (36A00-1)

PIM-to-PC Kit (36A05-2)

Upstart Software – required

PC Access Software – optional but recommended
 
 

Installation:

  1. Install the Leviton controller in the desired location, according to the installation manual.
  2. Install the switches in the desired location – this could be a closet, attic, basement, utility, or mechanical room.
  3. Install the House Status Switch in the desired location.
  4. Plug the PIM into an outlet near the Leviton controller and connect the supplied cable to the desired serial port on the controller.  NOTE: By default, all controllers (except the LT, which has a single serial port) have Serial 3 Function set to UPB.
 

Setup:

  1. Using a console or PC Access:
    1. Navigate to Setup>>Installer>>Expansion, and set the desired Serial Function to UPB.  NOTE:  Only 1 Serial Function should be set to UPB.
    2. Navigate to Setup>>Installer>>Control, and set the desired UPB Network Address, Password, and UPB Status Time.
    3. Navigate to Setup>>Miscellaneous>>Control, and set the desired House Code Format to HAI Lighting Control (HLC).  NOTE:  All unused House Codes should be set to Standard Format.
    4. Navigate to Setup>>Names>>Units, and name each of the switches.

NOTE 1:  When using HLC Lighting Format, the first unit of each room is reserved specifically for the use of a Scene Switch.  Although this application does not require these devices, they must still be named, even if not installed.

NOTE 2: For the purposes of configuration, you should temporarily name the House Status Switch.  After configuration, you should delete the name.

NOTE 3:  The programming portion of this application will require the use of flags (units 393-511) as timers.  You can name the flags if desired.

 

  1. To configure each of the light and house status switches:
    1. Put a switch into “Setup” mode (light switch = tap rocker arm 5 times, house status switch = press and hold buttons 1 & 8 for two seconds).
    2. From an LCD console, press 6 (Status), 1 (Control), scroll to the desired name, and press #-# - you can watch the display until complete.
    3. From an OmniTouch, press Control, select the desired Room, press GOTO, select the desired switch, and press Configure – you can watch the display until complete.
    4. Repeat the steps above until all switches have been configured.

 

  1. Once all devices have been configured, disconnect the PIM from the controller and connect to a PC using the PIM-to-PC kit.

 

  1. Start the Upstart software and perform the following:
    1. Select “Create a new network file that matches an already installed network”.
    2. Once the software has found all of the devices and verified the configurations, right click on the house status switch and select Edit.
    3. Click on the Transmit Components tab.
    4. Click on the “Open Link Name Table” button.
    5. Click on the “New” button to add additional unused links.  You will need to 8 unused links for this application.  NOTE:  You can use the Link ID table above the “New” button to view the links already being used by your devices.
    6. Once you have added the 8 links, close the Links table – you should be back at the Transmit Components tab.
    7. Change each of the existing 8 button links, replacing it with one of the links you added.  NOTE:  No two buttons should have the same link.
    8. Set the “Mode” for each link to “Super Toggler”.
    9. Click on the “Program Device” button.  Once complete, click on OK.
    10. Right click on a light switch and select Edit.
    11. Click on the “Receive Components” tab – you should see that 6 links are already setup.
    12. Click on “Link 7” (should already be set as unused) and choose one of the links you set in the house status switch – this will provide a direct “connection” between this switch and the applicable button on the house status switch.
    13. Set the Level and Fade Rate as desired.
    14. Click on the “Program Device” button.
    15. Once complete, repeat Steps j-n above for each of the remaining switches, using one of the remaining links added to the house status switch.
    16. Once all links have been added, close the software.

 

  1. Disconnect the PIM from the computer and reconnect to the Leviton controller.  NOTE:  You will have to reset the PIM to Message mode:
    1. Using a paper clip or other small device, press the Program button 5 times quickly – the Status LED should turn green and begin to blink.
    2. Press the Program button 10 times quickly – the Status LED should turn red and continue to blink.
    3. Press the Program button 1 time – the Status LED should turn amber (green/red mix) and stop blinking.

Configuration/Programming:

You can use a console for the following procedures, but you may find PC Access much quicker.  For the purposes of understanding, we named/used the following:

 

  1. Named Units 1 and 9 as Room 1 and 9 respectively.
  2. Named Units 2-8 and 10 as Load 1-8 and 10 respectively
  3. Named Unit 11 as 8-button.
  4. Used Units 393-400 for timers, but did not name them.
  5. In Upstart, used Links 25-32, assigning them to Buttons 1-8 on the house status switch and Loads 1-8 and 10 respectively.

 

With the above stated, we created the following lines of programming:

            WHEN UNIT 400 OFF: LOAD 1 REQUEST STATUS

 

If you are using PC Access, download the file into the controller and test.  When each button on the house status switch is pressed, the associated light should come on and the LED should also light.  If you have a scene switch installed, the On LED should also light.  When the button is pushed again, the light should go off, the LED turn off, and the scene switch should reflect the change to off (unless other units in the room are on).  Pressing and holding a button from an off state will cause a dimmer to brighten until released.  Pressing and holding a button from an on state will cause a dimmer to dim until released.

 

Due to the amount of powerline traffic that can be created by this application, there are some general tips that should be followed:

 

  1. The 5 second timer should not be shortened, as this can cause the status request command to improperly report the status of the switch.
  2. When more than one light is to be turned on, you should observe a delay between button presses – for best performance, the delay should be 2 seconds or longer.
  3. If a light is on in a dim position and the desired control is to brighten from the dim state, pressing and releasing the button momentarily, and pressing and holding will allow the switch to brighten.

 



 

 




1.19. How are Links assigned to an 8-button House Status Switches in an HAI Lighting Control environment?
Question: How are Links assigned to an 8-button  House Status Switch (HSS) in an HAI Lighting Control environment?

Answer:

When the HSS is to be used to track/control 8 rooms, it is configured as the 8th unit in any or all (if desired) 8 rooms.  Since 8 rooms equal 4 house code assignments, that means that every 4 house codes have 8 dedicated links reserved for HSS switches.  See if the below makes sense:

 

  1. House Codes 1-4 = Rooms 1-8 – Any HSS configured to Units 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, or 64 would use Links 193-200.
  2. House Codes 5-8 = Rooms 9-16 – Any HSS configured to Units 72, 80, 88, 96, 104, 112, 120, or 128 would use Links 201-208.
  3. House Codes 9-12 – Rooms 17-24 – Any HSS configured to Units 136, 144, 152, 160, 168, 176, 184, or 192 would use Links 209-216.
  4. House Codes 13-16 – Rooms 25-31 – any HSS configured to Units 200, 208, 216, 224, 232, 240, or 248 would use Links 217-224.

 

If a HSS is desired to be used as a macro executer, it would be configured as the 2nd-7th unit is any room.  There are 8 links dedicated for any HSS used in this manner – Links 243-250.  In summary, when using the HLC scheme, links are applied in the following manner:

 

  1. Links 1-186 – assigned to any switch or room controller configured in Rooms 1-31, respectively (NOTE: Links 187-192 would be applied to any switch/room controller configured to Units 249 and 250).
  2. Links 193-224 – assigned to any HSS configured properly to function as a house controller in Rooms 1-31, respectively.
  3. Links 241 and 242 – assigned to the Top/Bottom rockers on every switch.
  4. Links 243-250 – assigned to any HSS configured to function as a macro-executer.
  5. Links 225-240 – free for use as programmed.

 

1.20. Can I get LED Status Tracking on a House Status Switch in a "stand-a-lone" application?
Question: Can I get LED Status Tracking on a House Status Switch (HSS) in a "stand-a-lone" application, where no automation controller is being used?


Answer: No.  LED Status Tracking is a design feature only available when using a Leviton automation controller.  If a House Status Switch (HSS) were the only source of control for eight switches (the switches were located in a remote location), the Upstart software could be used to create customized control links that could control the  switches.  The drawback is that the LED Status Tracking would not be 100% reliable.  If a switch were controlled manually or from another source different than the HSS, the HSS would not know a change had taken place.
1.21. Creating a routine to flash all lights during an alarm. Note: not needed for HLC systems in 2.15 or higher firmware controllers.

For the purposes of this application, we will be referencing an Omni Pro II and HLC lighting, although the same logic can be applied to the entire line of currently manufactured controllers (LT, Omni IIe, Omni Pro II, Lumina, and Lumina Pro).  This application assumes that the HLC network has previously been created and is functioning properly.

1. Connect the HAI PIM (36A00-1) to a computer using the PIM-to-PC converter (36A05-1).

2. Using the Upstart Program, perform a Network Discovery to find all of your HAI Lighting devices.

3. Add 1 additional "unused" link to each of the switches that will be involved with the flash routine.  The light level should be set to 100% and the Fade Rate should be set to "Snap".  In this example, we will use Link 240.

4. Once complete, re-connect the PIM to the Omni Pro II and remember to reset the PIM to Message Mode.

5. Using PC Access or a console, set all of the HLC House Codes for All On and All Off as disabled.

6. Create the following program logic:

     WHEN ANY ALARM: UNIT 393 OFF FOR 1 SECOND

     WHEN UNIT 393 ON: UNIT 393 OFF FOR 1 SECOND

     WHEN OFF: SET UNIT 393 TO 0

     WHEN UNIT 393 ON: ALL ON

     WHEN UNIT 393 OFF: ALL OFF

     WHEN ALL ON: LINK 240 ON

     WHEN ALL OFF: LINK 240 OFF

Lines 1 & 2 create a looping routine, using a flag,  based on any alarm.

Line 3 is critical to stopping the looping routine when the system is disarmed. "Setting a flag to 0" is the equivalent of turning it off, but without executing an "OFF" command, which would cause the routine to continue.

Lines 4 & 5 allows the All On/Off commands to track the state of the flag.

Lines 6 & 7, allow Link 240 to track the All On/Off commands.

 

1.22. Flashing Lights for Hearing Impaired - This would apply to HLC systems with 2.14 or earlier firmware.

Discussion

This article outlines the steps necessary to create a routine which will flash the lights when an event happens.  This can be very useful for a hearing-impaired customer, who can be alerted when the doorbell rings or the TTY device receives an incoming phone call.  The steps shown here are for use in PC Access - similar steps can be used if programming is done on a console or touchscreen.

Setup

  1. Wire a doorbell to a zone.
  2. Under Setup>>Names/Voices>>Zones, name the zone DOORBELL.
  3. Under Setup>>Names/Voice>>Units, name two flags:
    1. Fl duration – this will be used to determine the duration of the flashing lights.
    2. Flash – this is used to time each on and off pulse of the lights.

Programs

For the purpose of this example, we will use HLC units 1 and 9 (Scene Switches named “Public Space” and “Bedrooms”).  This will allow all units in rooms 1 and 2 to follow the routine, providing a better visual effect.

The minimum time per on or off state for lights is two seconds – a complete on/off cycle twill take four seconds.

The remaining steps are taken in Setup>Programs, and should look like this when complete:

WHEN Doorbell NOT READY: Fl duration ON FOR 8 SECONDS

WHEN PHONE RINGING: Fl duration ON FOR 12 SECONDS

WHEN Fl duration ON: Flash ON FOR 2 SECONDS

WHEN Flash OFF &IF Fl duration ON: Flash ON FOR 2 SECONDS

WHEN Flash ON: Public Space TOGGLE

WHEN Flash ON: Bedrooms TOGGLE

1.23. Can I change the default scenes in the Leviton Scene Switch (6-button) without having to write/change lines of programming, or using the Upstart software?
Question:

Can I change the default scenes in the Leviton Scene Switch (6-button) without having to write/change lines of programming, or using the Upstart software?



Answer:

Yes, this process is quite easy when using the HAI Lighting Control format:

 

  1. Press the desired button on the Scene Switch – all the lights within the room should go to the preset level originally learned when the lighting was configured.
  2. Adjust the individual loads to the desired level.
  3. Press the desired button on the Scene Switch 5 times – the loads should blink once and the LED on the Scene Switch should begin to blink continuously.
Press the desired button on the Scene Switch one more time – the scene is now set and will respond as desired when the button is pressed in the future or executed in a line of programming.
1.24. Can I change one of the default room scenes from an OmniTouch, without using PC Access or UPStart?
Question: Can I change the default scene levels for a room from an OmniTouch, without using PC Access or UPStart?

Answer:

Yes.  All you have to do is the following:

  1. Set the individual light loads within the room to the desired light level.
  2. Press the Control icon.
  3. Select the desired room.
  4. Press the Set button.
  5. Press the desired button - On, Off, A, B, C, or D.  The lights should blink to indicate the new scene has been set.

 

1.25. Can I configure non-HLC products to work like the HAI Lighting Control Scheme?
Question: Can I configure non-HLC products to work like the HAI Lighting Control Scheme?

Answer: Yes, you can configure non-HLC products to perform in a similar manner as HLC lighting products.  You must use the Upstart software to configure the devices, based on the desired effect.  Leviton has created a separate matrix that can be used for configuring the necessary links for dimmers, scene, and house status switches.
1.26. What switches are used in 3-way applications where the load exceeds 600W?
Question: What switches are used in 3-way applications where the load exceeds 600W?

Answer:

A dimmer, non-dimmer or relay switch will be the "master" and it will be connected to the connected to the load, as required.  The 37A00-1 auxiliary switch will serve as the slave and be installed in all other control locations.

1.27. 1500 Watt Dimmer Rating
Question:

Why does my 1500W dimmer have a sticker on it that says it is rated as 1200W?


Answer: The total load of the switch is 1500W, but the rating is based on the installation.  In a large wall box (greater than 40CU inches), the rating is 1200W.
1.28. Scene Switch IR Control
Question:

Do HLC Scene Switches (6-button controllers) support IR control?



Answer: Yes.  An IR receiver was added to scene switches starting with Revision B scene switches.  Revision A scene switches do not have IR receivers.
1.29. Scene Switch Remote Codes
Question:

Does the Leviton Scene Switch Remote (p/n – 38A14-1) use specific IR codes?



Answer:

Yes.  The 38A14-1 has four available room codes.  These codes cross references to four UEI codes (one for each room), such that:

 

Room 1 = Home Automation Code 0184

Room 2 = Home Automation Code 1024

Room 3 = Home Automation Code 1205

Room 4 = Home Automation Code 1206

 

Leviton’s part number 38A14-1 has been added to each of these UEI codes as a cross reference.
 
NOTEIf the actual hex codes are desired, the document attached to this article can be used.
1.30. Custom Legends
Question: Can scene and house status switches have custom engraved names?

Answer:

Yes.  HAI has a Custom Legend kit, part number 38A06-2.  This kit contains a form and redemption coupon, good for 1 custom engraved membrane for either a Scene or House Status Switch.

1.31. Configuring the Status LED on HLC Switches
Question: Can I change the functionality (color and/or performance) of the LED on dimmer, non-dimmer, and auxiliary switches?

Answer:

Yes.  The LED functionality can be altered in the following manners:

 

  1. Dimmer/Non-Dimmer Switches – By default, the color of the LED on dimmers and non-dimmers is blue – the default functionality is “On” when load is “Off”, and “Off” when load is “On”.  Using Upstart software, you can change the color (blue, red, or magenta) and functionality (to meet the desired effect).
  2. Auxiliary Switches – The color and functionality of the LED on auxiliary switches is determined by the installation connections:
    1. Blue conductor connected to neutral/ground = always on Blue LED.
    2. Gray conductor connected to neutral/ground = always on Red LED.
    3. Both Blue and Gray connected to neutral/ground = always on Magenta LED.
    4. Neither Blue or Gray conductor connected = LED off.
1.32. UPB All On/Off Control
Question:

When using UPB for lighting control, why do the All On/Off settings not work?



Answer:

As stated in the 2.6 Owner’s Firmware Release notes (and later owner manuals), the All On/Off features in an Omni or Lumina controller are not supported when the House Codes are defined as UPB.

 

If the All On/Off features are required, you can do one of the following:

 

  1. Define the House Codes being used, as HAI Lighting.  This option would require you to either use HLC lighting products, or configure 3rd party UPB devices to emulate HLC products.
  2. If UPB is the “desired” lighting control method, you could take the following steps to provide All On/Off functionality:
    1. Connect a UPB PIM to a PC (NOTE:  If using the Leviton PIM, you can use the 36A05-2 for this procedure).
    2. Open the Upstart software.
    3. If you have an existing network file, open it.  If not, bullet “Create a new network file that matches an already installed network”.
    4. Perform a network discovery to display all lighting previously setup.
    5. Open the properties of each switch and add an unused link to the Receive Components (NOTE:  To keep from possibly interfering with Leviton controller functions, any link 226-240 should be used.).
    6. Set the properties for the new link to 100% (or desired level) for the Lighting Level, and set the Fade Rate to “Snap!”.
    7. After adding the link and properties, click on the Program Switch button to add the link to each switch.
    8. Once complete, close the software and reconnect the PIM to your Leviton controller (NOTE:  Remember to reset the PIM to Message Mode.).
    9. In PC Access software, create two lines of programming, similar to:

 

WHEN ALL ON: LINK X ON

WHEN ALL OFF: LINK X OFF

1.33. 37A00-1 Auxiliary Switch Configuration
Question: Can the 37A00-1 Auxiliary Switch be configured in the same manner as a dimmer/non-dimmer/relay switch?

Answer: No. The 37A00-1 Auxiliary Switch does not have any “learning” capabilities. An auxiliary switch, when properly wired to a master switch, can be used to put the master switch into Setup Mode by tapping the rocker 5 times very quickly (same procedure performed from the master).
1.34. 37A00-1 Auxiliary Switch Wiring Requirements
Question:

Is a neutral required for wiring a 37A00-1 Auxiliary Switch in a three-way application?


Answer:
No. The only “required” wires for an auxiliary switch are the Line (black = 120V) and Control (yellow = traveler). Without a neutral or ground connection, the LED on the auxiliary switch is not active. If the LED is desired, a neutral (recommended) or ground connection is required.
 
NOTE:  The control wire must be of the same gauge as the wiring being used for the master switch.
1.35. Can HAI Lighting Control products be used in a 220V/50Hz lighting market?
Question:

Can HAI Lighting Control products be used in a 220V/50Hz lighting market?



Answer:

Leviton Omni automation controllers can be used (provided a 220V/50Hz 24VAC transformer is used) in these markets. Leviton manufactures the Omni-Bus lighting products that can be used. Additionally, there are some third party alternative lighting control systems that can be used in place:

1.     CentraLite – HAI has direct support for the Elegance, Lite Jet, and StarLite systems, that can be integrated via RS-232.

2.     UPB – there are two companies that manufacture 220V/50Hz UPB lighting products. For more details you can contact Power Line Lighting Control Pty Ltd (http://www.pllc.com.au/) or SmartHome LTD (www.shlhitech.com/eng/main_e.html).

3.     Other systems like Clipsal and Dynalite can be integrated to Leviton controllers via RS-232.

1.36. Why do my programmed link commands appear as scene commands and can they be made to appear as I intended?
Question:

Why do my programmed link commands appear as scene commands and can they be made to appear as I intended?


Answer:

The HAI Lighting Control (HLC) scheme requires the use of dedicated links to provide accurate status tracking, as well as scene control. Under HLC format, 6 individual links are reserved (dedicated) for each Room within each Hose Code.

If a line of programming is created that issues a link command and that link is reserved for a House Code defined as HLC, the link will appear as a scene command in programming. As an example links 1-6 are reserved for House Code 1, Room 1 with the following attributes:

Link 1 = ON
Link 2 = OFF
Link 3 = Scene A
Link 4 = Scene B
Link 5 = Scene C
Link 6 = Scene D

If a link of programming were created similar to WHEN ZONE X NOT READY: LINK 4 ON, it would appear in programming as WHEN ZONE X NOT READY: ROOM 1 SCENE 4. Regardless of how the program appears, Link 4 would still be executed. The caveat is that you could get unintended results.

The resolution depends on the desired effect. If the HLC scheme is the overall desire, a link not reserved for use in HLC should be used, either an unused link or link typically reserved for a House Code that is not set for HAI Lighting Control. If, on the other hand, you are not interested in the HLC scheme and want complete freedom of link usage, simply set the House Codes to UPB.

For details on general link assignments, you can refer to Article ID 546. For a more detailed look into how HAI Lighting Control products are configured, you can find the matrixes in Article ID 637.

1.37. Are HLC products compatible with arc-fault breakers?
Question:

Are HLC products compatible with arc-fault breakers?


Answer:

Yes. HLC products have been tested and confirmed to work properly with arc-fault breakers. Two specific models that HLC products have been tested with are:

Murray part # MP120AFP
Eaton / Cutler Hammer part # BR120CAFCS
 
The most critical factor in using HLC (or any electrical switch) with arc-fault breakers is related to using a “true” (common) neutral. If the neutral is shared with other circuits, there will be a current imbalance at the arc fault breaker, and it will trip.
