Convergent Embraces Holistic Energy Management

Convergent, announces the deployment of the energy efficient smartscreens in O Bel Sole!, a 41-unit solar community in Southern California's first development in California Energy Commission's New Solar Homes Partnership.

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 California Energy Commission's New Solar Homes Partnership sponsored in part by Southern Cal Edison.


The opportunity was uniquely 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

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
