Colorado vNet Provides Worldwide Weather Information on their Vibe™ Touchscreen

Users view weather information using the same Vibe™ Touchscreen that controls the company's award-winning home automation and distributed audio systems.

Loveland, CO - December 17, 2008 - Colorado vNet has integrated worldwide weather information into their award -winning home automation and distributed audio systems. With the Colorado vNet Weather Application, homeowners quickly view current weather conditions and hourly or 5 -day forecasts on the same award -winning Vibe™ Color Touchscreen used for controlling whole -house audio, lighting, climate, CCTV and security systems. Users choose from a list of previously viewed cities and easily add new locations by entering a zip code or browsing by country/state/city. In addition, homeowners have the flexibility to make any location the default or rename locations -for example, "Aspen Ski Lodge." A Weather Application Module and an Internet connection are the only requirements for adding weather to an existing Vibe system.


With several modules to choose from, integrators have the scalability needed for a variety of installations. The WX1 -40 Application Module allows up to 40 touchscreens to display weather information. For smaller installations, four additional Weather Application Modules (WX1 -5, WX1 -10, WX1 -20 and WX1 -30) are available.

The wizard -based vNet Producer™ software used to configure Vibe Audio, Climate, CCTV and Security Applications is also used for the Weather Application. All modules are pre -integrated to work with the HAMweather service, so integrators simply indicate which Touchscreens will have access to weather information.

"Our homeowners can now access weather information from any room of their home. They don't have to go to the laptop in the den -they can pull it up instantly from their bedroom Touchscreen," commented Scott Stephenson, Colorado vNet Product Manager.
