HOW IS THE LOCK STATUS SENSOR DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SOLUTIONS?
Marvin designed the Lock Status Sensor to be “system-agnostic” which makes it easy to adapt to changes in technology so you won’t have to worry about their window or door sensors becoming obsolete. Unlike competitive solutions, Marvin Lock Status Sensors are one of the only to completely hide the sensor components inside the window and hardware, so your windows and doors can maintain their beauty without cumbersome components sticking out.
FROM MARVIN: An Installer can easily integrate the window or door into an existing or new smart home security system by attaching the two wire leads to a wired low-voltage network or by using a wireless radio transmitter (provided by others).
