Anuva Automation has acquired TiO, the Android-based home automation company. TiO (stands for Turn it On) is definitely a new approach to home automation, driven by what they company calls an “outside in” philosophy that focuses on the customer experience. Through the TiO Android app, users can create macro functions for every room of their homes that includes streaming music, lighting control, climate control and control of other systems.
Anuva Automation will be building all of the TiO products in Florida and using a nearly flat system pricing structure so that integrators all get the same pricing regardless of volume. The company is trying to get traction in HomeAV right now.
