TiO Debuts TouchLite 4 Lighting Control System
Anuva Automation brings first new development to TiO Android-based home control system since the purchase last summer with new TouchLite 4 universal lighting and load controller.
The company has announced the shipping of a new Android-based TiO TouchLite 4 universal lighting and load controller that builds on the no-programming-necessary TiO automation ecosystem, which includes the StealthStream 1 amplified streaming audio player.
The TouchLite 4 has the ability to control any kind of lighting or fan, according to the company. Among the features of the technology in the TouchLite 4, which has eight separate active or pending patents, are:
- Fast installation and one-, two- and four-button configuration using the TiO Android app
- Ability to control any kind of lighting load (incandescent, LED, CFL, MLV, ELV, etc. – including multiple types on the same circuit; and fans or other motors)
- Touch sensitive activation to control the local light, other lights in the home, music, temperature, or any combination thereof
- Adjustable backlighting to illuminate button labels that can be printed on site – no waiting for engraved buttons
“We are excited to be shipping the TouchLite 4,” says Mike Anderson, president of Anuva Automation. “When installed as part of a TiO system, homeowners can finally turn their house into the home they want—without the necessary time and expense required by other systems that have been available.”
TiO, which is sold exclusively through CE pros, is configured and controlled from an Android tablet – no computers or exhaustive training required. The system is also affordable and simple for homeowners to program. The company has been through several iterations in recent history, with Anderson acquiring the technology from Russound following its acquisition of Colorado vNet (then 3vNet) and the reinvention under the ACTP and TiO brands.
