marvin windows and doors - Home Automation Lock Status Sensor

Marvin is bringing smart home capabilities to windows and doors with the new Marvin Home Automation Lock Status Sensor. The Lock Status Sensor is a simple, affordable and hidden solution that indicates if a door or window is closed and locked or unlocked.

Marvin_Home_Automation_4 -resizedWhen Marvin designed the Lock Status Sensor, they had simplicity in mind. The installation process is designed to be as easy and intuitive as the solution itself, eliminating the need to drill into a new window or door to install a sensor system, potentially voiding the warranty and any benefits for replacement. The solution is fully installed in our factory using a patent-pending design, and unlike with other manufacturers, there are no unsightly plastic covers or visible components to interfere with the beauty of your windows and doors. The solution is open platform, meaning it can integrate with nearly any home security system or app to give you a whole-house solution that gives you peace of mind without the complication of integrating multiple technologies. 

Show attendees are invited to visit the Marvin Windows and Doors booth to see first-hand how the Marvin Lock Status Sensor works seamlessly with no unsightly additions to the window or door it's built into.

In the not so distant past, if you wanted to install a stone shower, kitchen backsplash, or anything else made of granite or stone… It weighed a lot! It wasn’t easy to work with. If it needed to be cut, well, you needed an expensive water jet or CNC machine. Not Anymore!

DesignerStone Panels is the next generation of stone. DesignerStone Panels are “Real Stone—Real Thin.” There’s nothing quite like it out there. DesignerStone Panels are unique, easy to work with, and breathtaking to look at. Paul LaFrance, a popular HGTV Celebrity, endorses DesignerStone Panels and is utilizing the new product in his own home renovations!    

LaFrance, who is the CEO of Cutting Edge Construction and Design, and HGTV host of Disaster Decks, Decked Out, and Custom Built says, “I only utilize products that have meaning. The DesignerStone Panels ignite a sophisticated flair of art and history all in one. Stone is historic and art is filled with beauty and intrigue that lets the imagination wander—that’s what DesignerStone Panels offer. They take any space that’s old or new and gives life to them. The opportunities are endless with these DesignerStone Panels.” 

DesignerStone Panels are made by cutting natural blocks of stone as thin as 5mm. Depending on the type of stone and use, the backings can be aluminum polymer composite, fiberglass, honeycomb, or poly vinyl carbonate (PVB). The result is a natural stone panel that is stronger and far lighter than traditional large slabs of the same stone--and 100% waterproof! Simply put, DesignerStone Panels are being hailed as the first stone innovation in decades—the next generation of stone! 

Now, DesignerStone Panels offers back lightable Onyx, Marble, Quartzite, Quartz, and Granite! Yes, we have Granite that can be backlit, the applications indoors or outdoors are endless! One thing always remains the same anywhere DesignerStone Panels are installed, the final product is always Stunning! 

Stop by our showroom at 1900 County Rd. D East in Maplewood and "Experience what DesignerStone Panels has to offer". If you have a project you just want to discuss, don't hesitate to contact us at (651) 214-3822.
