ACTP Launches TiO Home Automation Brand

May 6, 2013
Automated Control Technology Partners, Inc. (ACTP) has launched its new home automation brand, TiO (Turn it On).
TiO Home Automation
TiO is a new approach to home automation, one driven by an “outside in” philosophy that focuses on the customer experience, according to the company. TiO home automation solutions will provide professional integrators with an easy-to-install, elegant home automation solution that offers powerful features, maximum flexibility and a new pricing model that will allow home automation to reach a broad base of consumers.
“TiO is driven by our vision to provide homeowners with an experience that seamlessly captures their mood and provides them with comfort and peace of mind,” said Mike Anderson, president and CEO of ACTP. “TiO is unlike any other home automation system because it truly allows the customer to control how the system interacts with their daily life. We’ve designed the TiO system to be simple and intuitive enough for the consumer to perfectly match their moods and create satisfying and powerful experiences in their home. We want to deliver a solution that adapts to the customer instead of asking the customer to adapt to the system.”
TiO systems will run on Android-enabled devices, allowing users to better utilize the world’s most popular mobile platform. Each system will be easily configured by a professional integrator via the convenience of an Android tablet.
“We feel great about the talent we have been able to bring onboard,” said Anderson. “We have a great blend of industry veterans and some newcomers who have really challenged our thinking. This diverse group has been able to come together quickly and we have really pushed the envelope of the product development process. It has been a great few months and we look forward to sharing more about the TiO product line in the coming weeks. I think integrators and consumers are going to love our approach.”
In addition to ease of setup, TiO systems will also offer professional integrators the luxury of specifying systems based on a nearly flat system pricing structure. Integrators can easily scale and upgrade systems, adding any combination of elements, to meet their customer’s needs.
TiO will unveil its initial product offering in June 2013 and will demonstrate product for the first time at InfoComm 2013, June 12-14 in Orlando. The product is expected to ship by July 1.
