Smart Home technology is one of the fastest-growing segments of the homebuilding industry. When many hear the term “smart home,” most assume it only applies to the electronics of a home like lighting, A/V equipment or HVAC control. As attendees at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) will learn this week, the future of Smart Homes applies a whole-home approach. Including windows.
Innovation Awards Honor for Andersen
Andersen was named a CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree for its VeriLock® integrated security sensors in the Smart Home product category. These awards honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 27 product categories. It’s a thrill to receive this recognition for the VeriLock product development team and verify the truly unique nature of this innovation.
Invisible to the homeowner’s eye, works 24/7
The VeriLock Integrated Security Sensor is unique in that the sensor is already integrated into the window or patio door – hidden from view. While other window security sensors can report if a window is closed or open, only VeriLock can report if a window is open or closed and locked or unlocked. This information also offers an energy savings opportunity: windows that are closed but unlocked lose air at a rate up to 3 times that of a closed and locked window.
CES attendees in Las Vegas can find VeriLock integrated security sensors at:
- The NextGenHomeTV SmartHome 3.0: this cutting-edge home that will be located at the main entrance to the SmartHome area of CES and will showcase the latest in smart home technology products.
We’re excited to see other new innovations at CES, and explore new opportunities to connect and collaborate on the next big thing. Will we see you there?
