Inwido launches smart windows

Inwido, Europe’s largest suppliers of windows, is launching one of the window industry’s greatest innovations in decades: the smart window! Through notifications via a mobile app, the newly-launched product allows you to check if your window is open or closed.

“We are very proud and pleased to be the first in the market to offer the smart window, a product that makes life easier, safer and more convenient for home owners,” says Håkan Jeppsson, President and CEO of Inwido. 

“The smart window is an important part of Inwido’s efforts to develop new products for a better life at home, one of the three pillars in our strategy for profitable growth. Being an innovative leader in our industry is essential to our being able to maintain our strong market position,” says Håkan Jeppsson. 

Operating the smart window is simple. Sensors in the handle ascertain the window’s position and determine whether the window is open or closed. The information is then transmitted to the home owner via a mobile app. The technology is fully integrated into the window, which looks like a completely normal window.  

“The smart window is the result of intensive development efforts within the Inwido Group over a number of years,” says Håkan Jeppsson. “We are now the first to bring this innovation to the market and will initially be launching the window in Sweden through our Hemmafönster brand. Inwido has already launched smart doors and Venetian blinds that will be integrated into the same app as the smart windows.”
