When it comes to safety and security, windows and doors are a home’s first line of defense. Andersen has teamed with Honeywell, a leading residential security system provider, to create a revolutionary product in home security: VeriLock™ integrated security sensors for the residential and light commercial markets.
According to statistics, homes without alarm systems are three times as likely to be broken into than homes that do. The majority of high-end residential homes include some form of security system. So a security system that includes integrated window and door sensors that can indicate locked or unlocked status* is a natural upgrade.
VeriLock integrated security sensors are a cutting-edge technology that integrates wireless security sensors into most E-Series/Eagle windows and doors. With these exclusive sensors, homeowners will always know if their windows or doors are open, closed, locked or unlocked.** This first-of-its-kind technology provides homeowners a new level of convenience, beauty, and peace of mind.
VeriLock sensors are designed directly into the hardware locking mechanism and available for most E-Series/Eagle windows and doors, eliminating the need for unsightly wires or visible sensors. When integrated with a Honeywell® security system, all it takes is a quick glance at the security system keypad to know that a home is secure. The system can also be monitored remotely from a Smartphone or tablet with optional Honeywell® Total Connect™ remote services.
VeriLock™ sensors are powered by commonly available lithium coin cell batteries and are designed to provide years of battery life.*** The system alerts homeowners when batteries need to be replaced, which can easily be done by the homeowner or a Honeywell security dealer.
After-market installation of traditional security sensors and the required wiring to a window or door can void most window and door manufacturers’ warranties, and these traditional security sensors only indicate whether a unit is opened or closed. With Andersen’s innovative approach of embedding wireless sensors into most E-Series/Eagle® windows or doors at the factory, the hassles of after-market installation and warranty concerns are alleviated.
Beyond security peace of mind, homeowners will also get the added benefit of energy efficiency with VeriLock sensors. Air escapes through windows and doors that are left unopened but unlocked. With VeriLock sensors, homeowners can easily verify that their windows and doors are locked and providing maximum energy efficiency.
Honeywell 5800-series wireless sensors have been used in more than 60 million installations. The wireless sensors are ideal for new construction, remodeling projects and multi-unit light commercial dwellings.
VeriLock sensors are available on most E-Series/Eagle windows and doors, including Eagle Axiom® casement and awning windows, Talon® double-hung windows, and Ascent® hinged and sliding doors. For more information, visit www.eaglewindow.com/verilock.
