Connect Io Intelligent Oven Connects with Families in John Laing Luxury Homes


NEWPORT BEACH, CA — July 25, 2006. As part of its commitment to providing homeowners with a better family lifestyle, Laing Luxury Homes now introduces a new technologically-advanced oven at two of its most prominent luxury home sites: SeaCrest in Crystal Cove, and Icon at Playa Vista. The Connect Io offers remote control by Internet and telephone, and comes with built-in refrigeration to keep foods fresh before and after cooking. These advanced remote features allows homeowners to communicate with the oven to give cooking, warming, and refrigeration instructions so that “dinner is ready when you are.”

Luxury home residents can also command the oven inside the home via a smart home Media Center, along with other remotely controlled devices, from a separate touch screen placed anywhere inside the home. According to Laing, “The Connect to Intelligent Oven is a perfect fit for Laing Luxury SeaCrest at Crystal Cove and Icon at Playa Vista, as both of these collections present not only luxurious homes, but top of the line features for people who appreciate luxury and new technological conveniences.”

In addition to NASA-based command and control engineering, Connect Io sports the best energy efficiency due in part to superior and clean ceramic oven insulation, also based on NASA’s space technology. Connect Io is also the only truly “green” and environmentally-safe oven on the market, because unlike most other brand ovens, Connect Io does not use toxic fume producing formaldehyde in its insulation.

“I created the Connect to Intelligent Oven after years of wanting to establish a relaxing meal-time to ‘reconnect’ with my family despite our busy activity schedule,” said David Mansbery, CEO, TMIO, LLC. “We all know that families that sit down together for dinner are more connected. This oven has the ability to bring families together and create a better lifestyle. I’m proud to say that the touchscreen control panel was designed by women whose practical and intelligent input make the oven incredibly easy to use.” For more information on the Connect Io Intelligent Oven, please visit
