Yale has announced Sierra Windows as the first official launch partner for SensCheck™, the company’s new range of integrated smart window and door lock sensors.
The partnership will see Sierra Windows – part of the Epwin Group – supply all its PVC casement window, flush window, and door products with SensCheck™ compatibility as standard. This will enable homeowners to check the status of their doors and windows using their smartphones and devices while providing an outstanding smart advantage for installers.
Steve Jones, Managing Director at Sierra Windows, comments: “We are delighted to be Yale’s first official launch partner for the SensCheck™ range. Yale’s innovations have protected homes, families, and belongings for over 180 years. This significant experience has seen them expand from being a leader in mechanical lock engineering to innovating connected smart locks and homes, one of the many reasons Yale is an instantly recognisable brand and the perfect partner for us.
“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 Yale 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 leading voice partners Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, enabling homeowners to ask a variety of commands, such as “Alexa, is my front door locked?” and “Alexa, is my bedroom window open?”
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.
Paul Atkinson, Managing Director at Yale, adds: “We are delighted to announce Sierra Windows as the official launch partner for our SensCheck™ range. 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.”
