Tampa, FL – Masonite International Corporation, a global designer, manufacturer, marketer and distributor of interior and exterior doors, announced patent-pending technology to integrate power and internet connectivity into residential doors.
Masonite plans to leverage this revolutionary technology through relationships with Ring and Yale Home. These collaborations will explore opportunities for product development to integrate new lifestyle and security functionality into doors that provide additional value and peace of mind for homeowners.
“We believe power and connectivity will create expanded capabilities for homeowners,” said Cory Sorice, Masonite senior VP and chief innovation officer. “We’re pleased to build relationships with Ring and Yale to transform what people can expect their doors to do.”
“We’re excited to be a part of this innovative step forward in smart home connectivity,” said Jamie Siminoff, founder and chief inventor at Ring. “The seamless integration of our Ring Video Doorbell technology and the Yale smart lock into the Masonite door is an example of how we can add technology in smart ways to make customers’ homes work harder for them.”
“As smart security rapidly evolves, it’s a logical next step for doors to become directly integrated with the technology themselves. With Masonite and Ring, we look forward to driving this innovation and helping bring about a new era of home security,” said Jason Williams, president of Smart Residential Group U.S., ASSA ABLOY.
