Convergent Embraces Holistic Energy Management

Energy -saving controllers offering energy monitoring / control in pilot

December 4, 2007 Golden, CO. Convergent Living, Inc, a leading provider of innovative and affordable smart control systems, announces the deployment of the energy efficient Companion smartscreens in O Bel Sole!, a 41 -unit green/solar community in Southern California's first development in the California Energy Commission's new Solar Homes Partnership sponsored in part by Southern Cal Edison, Sunpower and Archenergy.

The opportunity was uniquely well suited for Companion since each smartscreen draws only 10% of the energy of a standard PC or server -based solution. Companion was the optimal solution also because of the custom control requirements with upsells into existing integrated control for popular industry subsystems as well as remote access, an embedded browser and update / upgradeability from the network.

Convergent Living develops integrated and custom control solutions on patented networked smartscreens. Since 2002, the solutions have offered professional integrators around the world the dimensionality of plug/play ease and now full custom interface/control with Flash -animated interface designs. The elegant Companion controllers are specifically designed to run quiet, cool and fast, engaging users with networked content, control and entertainment management on centrally located always -on sentinels. The suite of in -wall, desktop, handheld, TV/PC interfaces offer users easy access to simplifying their homes, offices or light commercial environments. www.convergentliving.com
