From the Consumer Electronics Show to the International Builders' Show, media outlets raved about the first-ever exterior powered and fully integrated smart door.
The Masonite M-Pwr Smart Door makes other front doors obsolete. Learn how the integrated video doorbell, smart lock, battery back-up and other features make life easier.
"Why install a smart camera and lock on the door when you can have a door with everything?" writes Tech Xataka when reviewing the new Masonite M-Pwr Smart Doors ™, "This ‘smart’ door incorporates LED lighting, a Ring Doorbell Cam video doorbell, a Yale Smart Lock, and other extras like an extra battery for when the power goes out, a combo that makes other doors obsolete."
A lot happens at your front door. And by integrating all these features, M-Pwr Smart Doors help make life much easier.
Imagine, for instance, your in-laws are in town, and you still have a lot to do before they arrive. You head out to pick up some dry-cleaning and grab a few extra snacks to have on hand.
As you’re checking out at the grocery store, your smart watch pulses with a notification: front door was opened. You grab your phone to check the security footage and see that your mother- and father-in-law’s flight must have gotten in early.
Fortunately, they used the smart lock code you texted earlier, so they didn’t have to wait outside in the sweltering summer heat while you finished your last-minute errands. All thanks to your smart door.
So, what exactly makes a smart door smart? Learn more about the features designed to keep your home connected and protected.
Surprisingly, a smart door doesn’t look all that different from a traditional front door. All M-Pwr Smart Doors include our Masonite Performance Door System, which features a premium fiberglass door and 4-Point Performance Seal.
Altogether, this system has proven 64% better at keeping air and water out than the leading competitor, resulting in superior energy efficiency, performance and comfort. Here’s what sets the system apart:
M-Pwr Smart Doors connect to your home’s power supply, so you never have to worry about turning them on or off. We know what you’re probably thinking: wait… what if I lose power?
The smart door includes a battery back-up to ensure your door stays on, even if the electricity goes out. The power is routed through the top of the door frame and transferred to low-voltage energy, making it safe to use and easy to access for any maintenance.
Stay in control of your home, no matter where you are. The M-Pwr app centralizes the door’s core integrated features, including your smart doorbell and smart lock. Switch on lights, check if the door is open or closed, customize your settings and more all through the app.
Plus, there are no monthly subscriptions required: you simply create an account, register your door and set up your additional devices. The Yale Assure Lock Touchscreen with Wi-Fi also does not require any subscription fees. The built-in Ring Peephole Doorbell Camera comes with a free 30-day trial of the Ring Protect video recording service. If you wish to store recordings in the cloud after 30 days, you will need to purchase a subscription through Ring Protect Plans.
Illuminate your front entrance to help delivery drivers find the right spot and prevent package theft. LED lighting is also a good feature to have so you can feel secure walking through your door at night. Program your smart door’s LED lights for motion activation or to switch on at a specific time.
Easily monitor your front door from anywhere, whether you’re at work for the day or abroad for a two-week vacation. The built-in video doorbell allows you to see who drops by or confirm that packages were delivered. You can check in using the live stream feature or review your doorbell’s recordings. (Recordings are free with a 30-day trial, otherwise a monthly Ring subscription is required.)
Can’t remember if you locked up before you left? Or do you need to let the dog sitter in? The integrated smart lock lets you lock and unlock your door from anywhere with your phone.
Get alerted of any comings and goings from your home. A sensor detects if your door is open or closed and can notify you immediately. And with the integrated video doorbell with motion alerts, you’ll immediately know who just walked through your door.
