August 20, 2008 Denver, CO. Convergent Living, Inc, a leading provider of innovative and affordable control systems, announces the addition of Apple's iPhone as yet another optimal interface for the award -winning suite of control applications.

Convergent's patented control architecture is now accessible from anywhere via the vastly popular Apple iPhone using free, off -the -shelf software from Apple. In -home requirements are simply a Companion SideKick controller or the new LED backlit NEO8, 10 or 15 Smartscreens and router port forwarding. "We continue to preach the benefits of the user experience and thanks to iPhone's ease of navigation, exciting color -saturated graphics and Companion's user -consistent Adobe Flash GUIs, we can deliver on the oft -ignored premise that the user experience is paramount and not the plethora of gadgets", states Craig Slawson, Chief Wizard at Convergent. "Companion smartscreens and now the iPhone deliver unparalleled ease of use and wide -area -network (WAN) mobility for accessing and managing all home systems from a single interface or location. Very cool".

Convergent Living develops integrated and custom control solutions on patented IP -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 Adobe Flash -animated interface designs.
