The Companion Ecosystem expands
Golden, CO 2/15/2005 - Convergent Living (aka CorAccess), developer of intelligent whole home control appliances, today announced support for more key "best of breed" audio subsystems into the plug -and -play Companion Application Suite.

"By engineering in pre -integrated support for sophisticated and compelling products, Convergent allows professionals to spend more time adding cool/useful functionality and wizardry to the subsystems. It also opens Companion up to other professionals seeking to add sophisticated and robust all -digital whole home status and control," Craig Slawson, President of Convergent Living. The Companion suite of touch/appliances are best utilized when feedback and control from disparate systems is provided automatically. Additionally, IP -enabling these subsystems helps to simplify pre -wire and bring whole home subsystems in contact with each other for cross -platform macro/logic interactivity.
Enhancements to Companion Interface
In addition to adding two new touchscreens, Muse and C8, CorAccess has added enhanced custom functionality for advanced dealers. The new Home Page Manager allows direct access to content, status and control on the engaging Flash -based interface. Now custom mini -control movies can invite the user into the custom control environment while leveraging all the best of breed systems and control applications already standard on each appliance. Additionally, full custom support is available through the ever -growing AniMate Community of developers.
