Minnesota-based window and door maker Marvin has announced an automated combination of design and smart technology to provide more convenience and control over air, light and views.

With Marvin Connected Home, homeowners can create their perfect setting for waking up, winding down and everything in between with voice-activated and programmable smart skylights, windows and doors. Through the ease of a smart home platform such as Amazon Alexa and home automation systems such as Crestron Home or Control4, homeowners can operate Marvin skylights, windows and doors.

This smart home offering is designed to transform the way architects and builders approach home design, providing ease, increased productivity and a personalised in-home experience for homeowners.

“Marvin Connected Home is an innovation that represents a significant leap forward in smart home technology,” said Marvin CEO Paul Marvin. “By blending exacting design with cutting-edge technology, Marvin Connected Home is a first-of-its-kind, setting a new standard for the industry and reaffirming Marvin’s long-lasting commitment to innovation.”

Marvin Connected Home ( offers flexible control of modern automated awning and casement windows, Awaken skylights and an automated multi-slide door, making it easier for homeowners to operate windows and doors with a home automation system, voice assistants, the Marvin Home app, a wall switch or on-unit control buttons.

They can programme windows and skylights to react responsively to outdoor conditions such as temperature and humidity. And they can check and control the multi-slide door’s magnetic lock using the Marvin Home app.

Built-in rain sensors automatically close open windows, doors or skylights when moisture is detected.

“These smart windows and doors are engineered to deliver integrated technology for truly effortless living,” said David Goulet, vice president at Marvin. “Marvin Connected Home empowers homeowners with unprecedented control over their living spaces, offering an unmatched in-home experience.”
