We all know the feeling. You’re an hour from home on your way to a relaxing weekend at your beach house when that doubt starts to seep in. “I think I locked the sliding door to the deck. Yes, I am sure I did,” you try to convince yourself. Minutes later, the doubt settles in and your family is turning around and heading home to make sure your house is secure, adding hours to your trip and removing that carefree feeling you were so enjoying.

Imagine a Better Way
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to purchase windows and doors for a new home or remodel that became a beautiful and integral part of your smart home? With everything from lighting fixtures, entertainment, and refrigeration controlled by home automation systems, why not select beautiful windows and doors that connect easily and seamlessly to that smart home ecosystem so that you can check them from anywhere?

That day is finally here. Marvin’s long-anticipated Lock Status Sensor technology is now a reality, making them the only manufacturer who offers fully integrated, factory-prepped hardware that has no visible components to detract from their beautiful windows and doors. Its simplicity is its genius.

Here are five reasons Marvin’s Lock Sensor System is the right choice for your home:

1. The Lock Sensor Status indicates whether your window or door is unlocked or closed and locked.
2. This system integrates seamlessly into your new or existing security system via wired or wireless connection.
3. The concealed design preserves the beauty of your Marvin windows and doors without impacting performance.
4. Forward-thinking design allows you to upgrade your home automation system as technology changes.
5. Marvin’s provider-agnostic engineering means these windows and doors are compatible and ready to connect with leading third-party home automation HUB and service providers.

Seeing is believing…take a look at this video:

When it’s Easy for the Installer, it’s Better for You
When Marvin designed the Lock Status Sensor, they weren’t just thinking about homeowners. They were thinking of the builders, installers, and integrators as well. So they made the installation process as easy and intuitive as the solution itself. You don’t have to worry about drilling into a new window, voiding the warranty and having to cover the cost of replacement. All the prep work has been done. And, unlike with other manufacturers, there are no unsightly plastic covers or visible components to interfere with the beautiful aesthetics or performance of Marvin windows and doors.

You don’t need to have special knowledge or experience with these systems to install a window or door equipped with the Lock Status Sensor. It truly is a “Plug and Play” solution.

You’ll Never Sacrifice Style for Security Again
Whether you envision the look of Ultimate Double Hung windows for your historic Cape Cod cottage or modern farmhouse, or choose Ultimate Casement or Awning style windows for your more contemporary home, you’ll never sacrifice the look you dream of to ensure the peace of mind you deserve.

When your lifestyle depends on a simple, elegant solution for connecting interior spaces to beautiful landscapes, Marvin now offers the Lock Sensor Status on stunning options like Ultimate Arch Top Swinging French Doors or the Ultimate Multi-Slide or Bi-Fold Doors.
