Smart Window Technology In Demand
Builders, remodelers and realtors all report demand for smart technology built into homes is increasing. To keep pace with the other “connected” aspects of their lives homeowners want added value from everything from appliances to windows. WiFi connectivity is noted on most building plans from the beginning these days. It has become the “fourth utility.”
Turning on lights and adjusting the thermostat are common, accepted features. Homeowners want more. Pella windows is delivering more convenience along with industry-leading materials and designs. It is the first window-maker to offer a free app for self-monitoring its windows and doors in addition to working the between-the-glass blinds and shades.
With the Pella app you can:
- Check to see if windows and doors are open or closed
- See if windows and doors are locked or unlocked
- Program real-time notifications telling you when windows and doors are locked or unlocked
- Program motorized blind and shades to raise or lower on a precise schedule
There’s more than technology built into the new windows. Designers never lose sight of the need for clean, attractive lines to go with each window’s precise function. The sensors for the Insynctive system are hidden within the window frame work to preserve the beauty of each installation.
A high-tech window not only provides the peace of mind of knowing doors and windows are as they should be, it is an asset to your HVAC system, too. Positioning shades and screens to keep out hot afternoon sun even when you’re not home gives your AC unit a break. Couple that with energy-efficient glass options like Pella’s triple-pane, AdvancedComfort Low-E insulating glass for measurable energy savings.
