CES, the world’s largest technology fair, is the perfect time and place for companies to showcase what they are developing with a focus on the smart future. THE masonite, a door manufacturer, for example, showed the first smart home door in recent days, thinking about what we can transform our homes.
The smart port concept was announced as early as 2021, but last week CES visitors could see it in action. the smart door Masonite M-Pwr Smart Door it is the first residential external door to integrate power, lights, sensors, a video doorbell and a smart lock into the door system.
To be more specific, some of the technologies present on this port include a Ring Video doorbell, which is the company’s peephole camera; a Yale Assure Wi-Fi and Bluetooth smart lock; a PIR motion sensor powered by Wi-Fi and Bluetooth; a door status sensor that uses the doorbell sensor array to determine whether the door is open or closed, and built-in motion-activated LED lighting in the door sill. The port also has its own built-in smart hub for easy connections and a built-in backup battery to keep everything running for up to 24 hours in the event of a power failure.
All of these technologies can be upgraded without having to change the entire port – with the exception of the power cords. However, as this product is a collaboration between Masonite, Ring and Yale, the user would need to use at least three apps to control the port’s resources – which is considered a negative point so far.
Rings’ app would control the doorbell, Yale’s app would be responsible for the lock, and Masonite’s app would program and control motion-activated LED lighting and check the door’s status. But the company says that in the future it wants to make the door work as a single system.
Currently, the Masonite M-Pwr Smart Doors is only available for new home construction, with the first models being deployed by Barringer Homes in the Plaza Midwood neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina. Additional build partner announcements are expected this year. For new residential construction, the price will be determined by the builder e. Of course, the ports need a professional installation service and connect to a home’s electrical system and Wi-Fi network.
Despite this, we know that there are a variety of styles, colors and finishes for these smart doors.
