Shenandoah Homes has announced a partnership with TiO® (Turn it On) for its new home line up in 2017. The company is based out of Florida, and features a brand of common-sense home automation products. Shenandoah Homes specializes as new home builders in Raleigh, N.C. and the surrounding areas.

TiO will be incorporated into 75% of Shenandoah’s homes that will be constructed in the upcoming year. These newly built homes will provide buyers with a standard package that includes lighting, thermostat controls and security in each home. Additionally, buyers may add extra features that include audio elements, amplified lighting, increased door locks and garage door features to their home.

In the coming year, Shenandoah plans to close 200 homes, upon already having control of more than 1,000 housing lots in Wake, Durham and Johnston counties. These custom built homes have ‘move-in ready’ technology that buyers are willing to pay more for. Instead of having to install smart products on their own, new home buyers in and around the Raleigh area are looking for someone that will do the job for them. With Shenandoah and TiO’s partnership, a solution to the desire for more smart technology is doable.

Sanjay Patel, president and chief executive officer of TiO said, “Being a Raleigh-area resident, it’s great to be able to partner with local businesses to create solutions for buyers in our community.” Knowing that home automation is an increasingly popular trend for homebuyers, this partnership with TiO is exactly the type of solution that Shenandoah Homes was looking for.

President and owner of Shenandoah Homes David Stallings said, “TiO has a feature rich solution that is cost effective and reliable. Featuring compatibility with many major players in home-automation, TiO can be paired with other solutions, which allows our customers to add to their system at any time and customize it to their expectations.”
