TiO® Now Part of Specialty Electronics Nationwide Buying Group
Partnership extends TiO reach and gives SEN dealers better pricing on easy to install and use home and business automation products
MELBOURNE, Fla.– April 15, 2015 – Anuva Automation, the Florida-based manufacturer of TiO™ brand automation and control systems announced it has reached an agreement with Specialty Electronics Nationwide (SEN), the specialty CE and custom installation division of the Nationwide Marketing Group. This agreement will increase TiO’s product distribution network, and allow SEN dealers to reap the financial benefits of purchasing at much higher volume levels, meaning lower prices and increased profitability.
SEN dealers will now have access to TiO™ (Turn it On), an entirely new approach to home and light commercial automation driven by an “outside in” philosophy that focuses on the customer experience. Through the TiO Android and iOS apps, users can easily create unique environments in every room of their home that includes streaming music, lighting control, climate control and control of other systems.
“We welcome the TiO™ brand of home and business automation products as a new and valued vendor partner to the Specialty Electronics Nationwide roster of manufacturers,” said Hank Alexander, Director of SEN. “We are very impressed with TiO’s elegance, simplicity and powerful capabilities and believe these products present a great opportunity for our members.”
