TiO 2.0 Adds NEST Functionality

Makes it Easy for Installers to Bring Nest into Their Businesses

MELBOURNE, Fla.—May 5, 2015—Anuva Automation, the Florida-based manufacturer of TiO brand automation products introduces TiO (Turn it On) Version 2.0 adding Works with Nest integration, improved Bluetooth performance and TiO Pro login updates. TiO 2.0 also incorporates an MC2 upgrade providing a much bigger processor, more memory, faster speed and greater wireless range. Other recent updates include "Action Groups" which empowers the TiO product ecosystem's lighting components for use in light commercial applications, such as restaurant, bars and professional offices.

TiO provides an easy, intuitive control ecosystem that delivers a set of features usually reserved for higher-priced and complex home automation systems. "Works with Nest" functionality makes it easier for professional installers to bring Nest into their business offerings while providing their customers more ways to experience Nest in their homes. The Nest interface and functionality is included at no charge and with no additional wiring, hardware or other installation required. The system will recognize any Nest thermostats on the network and automatically set them up. If there is more than one thermostat in the system, the user simply names them as desired. TiO and Nest now work together behind the scenes to deliver personalized comfort, safety and energy savings.

"We're excited for the opportunity to work with Nest," said Mike Anderson, president of Anuva Automation. "With our new Works with Nest integration, our dealers can now provide intuitive access and control of the popular Nest thermostat through the award-winning wired, wireless and app-based user interfaces from TiO - offering a truly integrated solution to their customers."

TiO 2.0 also provides general bug fixes for appearance and speed. Currently deployed systems with an MC1 will not experience any negative consequences, yet they will not be able to take advantage of the 2.0 update. TiO will be announcing a swap program for MC1 owners that want to upgrade to MC2.

Anuva Automation will be exhibiting at InfoComm 2015. Visit Booth # 5585F to learn more about TiO, the dealer and training programs and to meet the TiO team. For more information about TiO home automation products or becoming an authorized dealer, visit www.tiohome.com.
