At CES, These Door and Window Products Caught Our Attention

January 9th, 2015 by Casey Flores

It seems like every industry is getting in on the action at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), and doors and windows are no exception. Keeping up with the digital age, here are some door and window products unveiled last  week in Las Vegas that we thought were worth sharing with our readers.

  • Pella’s Insynctive Technology Syncs With Home Automation

The company introduced its Insynctive technology—a family of smart products for doors and windows designed to deliver security, comfort and convenience.

Insynctive will link to your home automation system and let you know whether you’ve remembered to shut and lock your doors, windows and garage doors. There’s also a feature that can automatically raise and lower your blinds.

Pella’s Designer Series doors and windows with snap-in between-the-glass blinds and shades, which are powered by Insynctive, have been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree in the SmartHome product category.

Larry Ehlinger, general manager of Pella’s Insynctive business unit, said the system was developed in response to consumer demand.

“We don’t make windows and doors for homes, we make windows and doors for people. People who are asking for solutions to better control their homes and work spaces,” he said. “We believe Insynctive smart home technology delivers a solution that allows homeowners to control the level of security, comfort and convenience they want in their home from their windows and doors.”

How would you like to lock and unlock your door with your Apple product of choice?

Schlage, a brand of Allegion plc, has unveiled the Schlage Sense system, which will let you lock and unlock your front door with an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

The lock gives homeowners the choice and flexibility to enter their home using the lock’s illuminated touchscreen or their Apple mobile device.

“With the introduction of the Schlage Sense system, we are continuing to offer consumers the convenience of choice, coupled with the strength, security and style that they expect from Schlage,” said Steve Down, Allegion residential leader. “The Schlage Sense system, our most technologically advanced lock system yet, gives homeowners the ability to incorporate home automation on their own terms.”
