All LifeStyle Homes will come standard with TiO Home Automation.
Melbourne, FL (Nov 2, 2017) – TiO®, the Florida-based provider of commonsense home automation, has expanded its offerings with LifeStyle Homes. The original partnership, announced in November of last year, indicated TiO would be standard in LifeStyle Homes’ Seville community of 11 upscale custom homes in Viera, FL. The new expansion means TiO will now be standard in all new LifeStyle Homes, which builds an average of 120 homes per year.
Short for “Turn it On,” TiO creates hardware and software products that allow for wireless control of the home through a single app on a homeowner’s phone or tablet. The partnership with LifeStyle Homes represents the most recent in a series of multi-community partnerships TiO has entered into with homebuilders around the nation
Since 1984, LifeStyle Homes has been building communities along Florida’s Space Coast. The family-owned company is known for homes that reduce energy costs. The company is also an active member in the world’s clean-energy movement. In fact, LifeStyle Homes recently completed its 100th solar home.
“Because of the success of TiO in Seville and its ease of use, we decided to include a ‘starter’ TiO system in every home we build,” says Karen Kicinski of LifeStyle Homes. “The biggest surprise [about TiO] – for builders and homeowners alike – is the system’s ease of use. Our homeowners can easily change preferences themselves, with little to no knowledge of smart home technology.”
“LifeStyle Homes is exactly the sort of builder that’s right for TiO,” said Sanjay Patel, President and CEO of TiO Home. “With the growing trend of homebuyers looking for move-in ready homes with automation, it’s great to see many builders understanding the value and importance in home automation. We look forward to growing our partnership with LifeStyle Homes.”
TiO made a name for itself in the technology industry with its easy-to-install, easy-to-use home automation system, designed specifically for builders. The system consists of four simple components, including the TiO app and “the brain,” or MasterCoordinator®, which provides homeowners access to their TiO system from anywhere in the world.
TiO has been recognized by Sound & Vision, a leading audio-visual publication. The company was recently awarded a patent for “Setting moods and experiences through use of a mobile device.”
