Portland-based computer company IOTAS has secured $8.5 million in Series A funding, according to company database Crunchbase, topping the city’s recent funding headlines. The cash infusion was announced on Oct. 1 and led by TELUS Ventures.

According to its Crunchbase profile, "IOTAS is a Portland-based developer of a premier smart home technology platform that delivers a fully-connected, smart home experience for residents and property managers that integrates IoT technology directly into multifamily units. IOTAS enables property developers to quickly install numerous smart devices by streamlining the set-up and deployment process.

The six-year-old company has raised five previous funding rounds, including a corporate round in 2017.

Over the past year, three Portland-based consumer electronics companies have secured venture funding, totaling $21 million in new investment to the local industry.

In other local funding news, social media company Built Oregon announced a $50,000 grant on Sept. 3, financed by Oregon Community Foundation.
