Masonite M-Pwr Smart Doors earn media accolades

By Masonite

From the Consumer Electronics Show to the International Builders' Show, media outlets raved about the first-ever exterior powered and fully integrated smart door

How many smart devices do you have in your home? According to research performed by Parks Associates, 41% of households in the United States own a smart home device. That may not be surprising, as smart home technology has become increasingly popular in recent years, making its way into nearly every space in the home to offer enhanced security, comfort and entertainment. 
Here at Masonite, we know the importance of smart devices for homeowners, so we recently released M-Pwr Smart Doors ™. These doors are the first residential front doors to integrate power, motion-sensing LED welcome lights, a video doorbell, smart lock and emergency battery backup into the door system. The M-Pwr smartphone app helps you stay in control of your home, no matter where you are. 
Our entry into the smart home space elicited many excited articles from media outlets that have checked out the door. Here are some of them:
