Alexa, open the windows.

Step into the future of smart homes, where every device is interconnected. Picture a peaceful morning, the sun gently waking you up, and with a simple voice command, your home’s smart windows gracefully slide open, inviting a refreshing breeze into your home. This is not a dream; it’s a reality with Marvin Connected Home.

Welcome to a world where windows and doors are as smart as they are stunning. 

In an innovative leap forward for home automation, Marvin has launched a revolutionary range of smart windows and doors designed to elevate the smart home experience. These products promise to enhance the aesthetic appeal of any home and introduce a level of convenience and energy efficiency previously unimagined.

“We’ve been in the business of enhancing homes for decades, and the leap we’re seeing in Marvin’s smart technology integration in windows and doors is nothing short of revolutionary,” explains Rick Bertolami, co-owner of JB Sash and Door. “Marvin’s connected home automation technology not only elevates the user experience but also redefines what we expect from our living spaces. It’s about bringing convenience, energy efficiency, and security together in a way that was unimaginable just a few years ago.”

Less Effort, More Control.

Marvin’s technology simplifies life by allowing homeowners to control their windows and doors remotely via a smartphone app. This means you can adjust natural light and ventilation, monitor security, and integrate with other smart home systems, all from the palm of your hand.

“Imagine creating a perfect environment before you even step through the door or knowing your home is secure no matter where you are,” says Bertolami. “This is the power of Marvin’s technology, and it’s transforming the way homeowners interact with their homes.”

Responsive Technology.

You’ll never need to panic and wonder if you left a window open when an unexpected rainstorm hits. Program your smart windows and skylights to respond to outdoor conditions such as temperature and humidity and have peace of mind that the built-in rain sensors will automatically close windows, doors, or skylights when moisture is detected.

“Imagine your home not just responding to your commands, but anticipating your needs, adjusting the indoor climate to your exact preference without you having to lift a finger,” Bertolami explains. The system’s intelligent design opens windows to cool the house if it’s too hot or closes them when it detects rain, all of which can be controlled through a user-friendly app or even with voice commands via Siri or Alexa.

High Design and Function

“Previous attempts to automate windows have been cumbersome, unattractive, and required a lot of technological setup,” states Bertolami. However, Marvin’s latest automated windows embody a Modern design aesthetic that emphasizes simplicity, product ingenuity, and aesthetic appeal. These elements come together to deliver a seamless and impressive design experience.

The key feature of this new product line is the concealed motor installed within the windows and doors. Additionally, during installation, all electronic components are seamlessly integrated to ensure a stylish connection with the entire smart home system.”

Seamless Smart Home Integration

For those who enjoy the convenience of voice commands, integrating Amazon Alexa with windows and doors is a breeze, allowing for easy use of voice assistants. Additionally, Marvin’s Connected Home features—such as Modern windows, doors, and Skylights—can be effortlessly controlled with existing smart home platforms like Crestron® Home or Control4®, making them a perfect fit for those already invested in smart home technology.

Concerned about connectivity issues? Marvin automated products can be manually operated through built-in controls such as wall switches and on-unit controls.

“This integration ensures that the transition into a smart home ecosystem is seamless and enriches the functionality and efficiency of every living space,” Bertolami points out. “The goal is to make the homeowner’s interaction with their living environment as intuitive and enriching as possible.”

Although these products are new to the market, Bertolami explains that adding these doors and windows does not need to be complicated. “At JB Sash, we have a dedicated team that specializes in providing architectural product support and installation setup to ensure a smooth designing and building experience with this product.” Bertolami encourages a collaborative effort from homeowners, architects, builders, and smart home integrators from the outset. By doing so, the integration of these advanced modern windows, skylights, and doors into homes becomes seamless, ensuring that both technology and design complement each other perfectly.

As we continue to embrace the benefits of smart home automation, Marvin, in collaboration with partners like JB Sash & Door, is taking charge of making these advanced technologies accessible and user-friendly. With a commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction, the future of smart windows and doors has never looked brighter.
