Anuva Automation, the Florida-based manufacturer of TiO brand automation products, has released the TiO software suite version 1.05. These updates add numerous features such as “Action Groups” that empower the TiO product ecosystem’s lighting components for use in light commercial applications, such as restaurants, bars and professional offices.
TiO software suite version 1.05 adds Action Groups where multiple lighting loads can now be assigned to a single button. This has the effect of dynamically grouping lighting loads so that they can be ramped up or down in perfect synchronization from a single button push. Up to 12 separate loads can be assigned to a single button. This does not affect any other button, or the ability to control these loads individually or group them in some other configuration on a different button.
Other new features in this software release include Element Version Reporting. The software version of each Element is now reported on the Manage Elements screen for each individual Element. This will help in diagnosing systems, and in verifying that a software update has been completed. The system configuration can now be saved to, and restored from, a USB drive connected to the Master Coordinator. Other updates such as the TiO Pro Login have been added to the System Settings Page an installer may now log in to the TiO Pro app (advanced settings) from the setup screen with a password. Lastly, general bug fixes are included to speed up the reaction time of the user interface.
“We continue in our commitment to innovation with these updates to TiO’s intuitive and powerful home control system,” said Vinu Patel, CEO of Anuva Automation. “We believe strongly that TiO should continue to grow easier to use and faster over time. By investing in continued app development, Anuva Automation is making it happen.”
In addition to the Android app already available, TiO announced in February the introduction of an iOS app to provide control of the TiO ecosystem of products to Apple iPad users. For more information about TiO home automation products or becoming an authorized dealer, visit www.tiohome.com.
