Convergent Living adds CBUS lighting integration

June 20, 2006, Golden, CO., USA - Convergent Living announced today the completion of the Clipsal C -Bus driver integration into the Companion ecosystems or pre -integrated subsystem drivers. Now CBUS professionals around the world can enjoy a seamless integrated lighting control smartscreen in an all -in -one package without the need for additional equipment, or servers. "Companion whole home control appliances incorporate "best of breed" subsystems and Clipsal's C -Bus is certainly a good one", states CEO Craig Slawson. "Now professionals have a choice of leveraging the Comfort control panel (or Clipsal variant) for security, doorphone, C -Bus lighting and Honeywell HVAC or connect directly via serial to the C -Bus system and leverage security, HVAC from other pre -integrated partners…plus multi -room audio, media servers, weather stations, pool/spa control drapes/blinds and more on a single smartscreen".

Convergent raises the bar to a new level with the internationally renowned C -Bus solution.
