Marvin Leads the Way in Smart Home Technology with Its Remote Open/Close Windows & Doors

The smart home – once a newsworthy innovation – has become almost commonplace.  (The first technology was introduced in 1975, but it took quite awhile to develop and become popular.)  Currently it’s projected that smart homes will increase by almost 11% this year alone.  As a Marvin Authorized Replacement Contractor serving the Minneapolis area for their windows and exterior doors, we are very pleased to announce that you can add remote-control doors and windows to your other smart home features like thermostats and lights you can control with an app on your phone.  Imagine being away from home and a severe storm hits.  Windows open?  Don’t panic – just grab your phone!

Yes, there are aftermarket products available you might be able to install to control your existing doors and windows.  But Marvin’s ‘Connected Home’ is the first of its kind – actually incorporated in the windows and doors during the manufacturing process.

Since Marvin is a Minnesota brand, it’s only fitting that the Minneapolis StarTribune would feature this innovative technology in a recent article.  (You can click here to read it, or click on the photo at right)  In the article, Marvin CEO Paul Marvin’s news release is referred to in part:

“By blending exacting design with cutting-edge technology, Marvin Connected Home is a first-of-its-kind solution setting a new standard for the industry and reaffirming Marvin’s long-lasting commitment to innovation.” 

Marvin is well-known as an industry leader, often pioneering new manufacturing processes as well as technology such as this.  It’s just one more reason we’re proud to recommend their replacement windows and exterior doors to our customers.

If you’d like to find out more about how adding Marvin Connected Home windows and doors to your home could make your life easier, contact us to set up an appointment – no obligation, no cost.  We can meet with you in your home or in our Savage window and door showroom.
