Yale has announced Sierra Windows as the first official launch partner for its SensCheck integrated smart window and door lock sensor range.
The partnership means Sierra, part of the Epwin Group, will supply all its PVC casement window, flush window, and door products with SensCheck compatibility as standard.
Sierra MD Steve Jones said: “SensCheck genuinely enhances our offering to installers, positioning them at the market forefront and providing them with a competitive advantage as more and more homeowners invest in smart home security. The partnership also means we will benefit from Yale’s marketing support and first-class technical expertise.”
With SensCheck, homeowners are notified via the Yale Smart Living Home App if their doors are open or closed, locked or unlocked, and whether their windows are in the night vent position. The range is also compatible with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
Yale SensCheck allows installers to offer smart windows and doors within their product range, benefiting from the association with a leading consumer brand. The fact that the consumer purchases directly from Yale means there is no risk for the installer – who is fully supported by Yale’s aftersales support team.
Yale MD Paul Atkinson added: “Sierra Windows are one of the market leaders in made-to-order windows and doors, with a strong market reputation, which makes them an ideal launch partner to work with in bringing SensCheck to market and ensuring our products are presented in the right way.
“This partnership is a sign that SensCheck is set to make a real impact on the window and door market as smart technology plays an ever-greater role in the way we live.”
