TiO Launches Phone Application for TiO Home

Major software update enables users to control TiO components from all Android and Apple iOS devices

Anuva Automation, the Florida-based manufacturer of TiO® (Turn it On) brand automation products, announces a major update to their TiO Home App, TiO version 3.1, with major software updates and phone app capabilities for both Android and Apple users.

For the first time, the TiO Home App allows users to control their TiO system with any device on an Android or Apple iOS platform, including phones. The software update features a new menu navigation scheme that streamlines operation and maintains consistency for users controlling their system from multiple devices.

The release of TiO 3.1 comes just weeks after the release of TiO 3.0, which adds expanded TiO Connect capabilities including contact closure functionality (i.e. garage door operation), complete IR control functionality, IP camera management, and numerous audio updates.

"We're excited to release this major update that allows our users the convenience of controlling their TiO system with any Android or iOS device paired to the system," said Sanjay Patel, president of Anuva Automation. "The Android app is available now and the iOS app is in the Apple approval process. We expect that to be released any day now. We are continuously working to improve the TiO experience and we are committed to making our products the best it can be."

"TiO 3.1 provides additional and easier control of TiO by enabling Android phones and iPhones." said John Anderson, product manager of TiO. "The updated app release of TiO 3.1 is a significant milestone in our evolution and makes TiO even more accessible."

To obtain the updated TiO Home 3.1 App, users simply download the new version for free from the Google Play and Apple Store. Updating a currently configured system will not change any of the configuration settings although all Elements must be updated. To download the full update notes, visit TiO Home 3.1 Release Notes.
