Honeywell of Melville, N.Y., unveils the VeriLock sensor technology, which embeds in Honeywell's 5800 Series of wireless sensors inside the locking mechanisms of a select group of windows and patio doors manufactured by Eagle Window & Door Manufacturing Inc., a subsidiary of Andersen Corp. of North Bayport, Minn. The system alerts homeowners if their windows or doors are unlocked.
VeriLock sensors will initially be available on Eagle Axiom casement and awning windows, Talon double-hung windows, and Ascent hinged French patio doors and sliding patio doors. Ideal for single-family homes, multi-unit light commercial dwellings such as assisted-living complexes and remodel projects, the VeriLock sensor technology can help reduce home energy use, according to the company.
The VeriLock sensor technology is available Jan. 1 on Eagle products from select Andersen window and door dealers in North America.
