I prefer Elk products and they support UPB. But I also sell HAI OMNI.
You program them with SA upstart.
http://www.simply-automated.com/products/sa_upstart.htm

And if you want I should be able to get you a great package deal. Just email
me a detailed list. The great thing about SA switches is Every switch is a
dimmer, a relay switch AND a transmitter depending on how you program it.
