TiO announces lamp dimmer and updated TiO home software
TiO (Turn it On) brand automation products has announced the addition of lamp dimmers to its lineup of home automation solutions. The lamp dimmers allow users to manage lighting over 802.11 Wi-Fi connectivity with the TiO Home App.
TiO has also announced updated software, version 3.2, for the TiO Home App with motorized shade control and refined components of the Android and Apple app.
The lamp dimmer is load agnostic – made to control any kind of lighting load including any mix of incandescent, electronic low voltage, LED, dimmable and non-dimming CFL, magnetic low voltage, motor loads and cold cathode.
The TiO Lamp Dimmers are 4.02” x 4.02” x 2.28” and connect to NEMA Receptacle (LMPNA) with a 300W dimming and switching load. They connect to the in-wall outlet and the controlled device plugs into the Lamp Dimmer.
Featuring 802.11 Wi-Fi connectivity for system communication, the TiO discovery process automatically adds the plug-in product to the TiO system. Configuration takes under a minute with the TiO Home App and is intended to work as a solution for users looking to update a single fixture or change a configuration.
“The TiO Lamp Dimmers bring a lot of added connectivity to a TiO control system,” Sanjay Patel, president and chief executive officer of TiO product manufacturer, Anuva Automation, said in a statement.
“Adding plug-in lighting and/or fans is incredibly simple and the Lamp Dimmers truly round out our lighting solution. The updated TiO Home App features added components, faster in-app loading times and significantly improves overall performance of product. We will show both additions at the upcoming TecHomeX and HTSN’s PrimeTime in Orlando in March. These new additions demonstrate our continued commitment to making TiO a feature rich home automation solution that easy to use and quick to install.”
TiO users can obtain the new update by downloading the new version of the app from the Google Play Store or the Apple Store. The next update, scheduled for mid-April, will feature real-time feedback of Elements connecting to the Master Coordinator 2 (MC2) to make the installation easier.
TiO can be found at Booth #608 at the TecHomeX summit in Orlando, Florida from March 21-23, 2016.
