In the aisles of CES 2022 in Las Vegas, there is no shortage of connected objects… The Masonite M-Pwr Smart Door, one of the novelties of this show, directly integrates sensors and camera.
There is no shortage of companies with little recognition in the new technology sector in the corridors of CES. During this 2022 edition, many are playing elbow to present connected objects, each more eccentric than the next. Masonite, the American manufacturer of interior and exterior doors, wants to make itself known during its visit to the famous Las Vegas show thanks to its connected door called M-Pwr Smart. Exit therefore simple connected doorbells such as Google Nest Doorbell or other locks such as the Nuki Smart Lock 3.0, now place at the front door itself integrating all these elements.
A back-up battery in the event of a breakdown
The M-Pwr Smart Door uses a particular technology – currently patent pending – which allows it to connect to the home’s wifi network so that it can be directly connected to the user’s smartphone. And the manufacturer has something to silence gossip: a back-up battery is provided to keep the system powered for 24 hours in the event of a power failure.
This connected door natively integrates a Ring Video doorbell as well as the Yale Assure connected lock, a motion sensor powered by wifi and Bluetooth, a door status sensor (which analyzes whether it is closed or open), but also a Led lighting which is activated at the threshold of the door when it opens. Connected and therefore linked to an application, the door sends notifications when a presence is detected or when the leaf remains open. This is where the shoe pinches, since the user will need no less than three applications to control their entire door: Ring (to see who is ringing), Yale (to unlock the door) and finally Masonite M-Pwr (to control lights and send open and close alerts). Not necessarily very practical to juggle between these applications for a single product …
Made from premium fiberglass, the M-Pwr Smart Door is said to last for years. It comes in many colors and finishes, including several glass options.
We do not have more details on this connected door, other than that it is for the moment available for sale exclusively in a district of North Carolina. via the builder Barringer Homes. Let us wish Masonite not to have to put the key under the door…
