Zonoff, a Malvern-based startup that builds software for “connected home” products, raised $3.8 million Series A led by Virginia-based funds Valhalla Partners and Grotech Ventures, it announced today.

The company, which spun off of 10-year-old smart home company BuLogics in 2011, will use the money to grow its development team and infrastructure, according to the release. Zonoff focuses on residential products, while BuLogics does a variety of related things, including designing and certifying smart home products.

Led by CEO Mike Harris, Zonoff makes software that allows the different objects in your home to talk to each other and to you. For example, a switch that turns the lights in your house off when no one’s home. Zonoff makes the technology that allows the lights to know to turn off, and it makes the app that will let you control that. It doesn’t make the hardware — in this case, that “smart” light switch — instead, it partners with retailers and service providers that do so. Read more about the company in our feature from last year.

Zonoff currently employs 18. Harris, 44, previously sold AnySource Media to DivX in 2009. He lives in Malvern.
