A smart home is a broad term used to describe households with automated appliances and devices that users can control remotely through a mobile or networked device. Many of these appliances are interconnected and can “talk” to each other, too.
Here’s a look at five of the most eye-catching smart home innovations introduced at CES 2022.
1. Masonite’s M-Pwr smart door
Usually, making your door “smart” means buying a smart lock (like Yale’s) or a smart doorbell (like Ring’s). and attaching it
Masonite’s M-Pwr smart door, however, allows you to buy a door already pre-installed with these smart gadgets. Made from fiberglass, the futuristic door features a built-in Ring doorbell and Yale smart lock.
The door connects to your home via Wi-Fi and an electrical system by way of a patent-pending technology that powers everything so that you don’t need batteries.
