Masonite M-Pwr™ Smart Doors are the first residential exterior doors to integrate power, lights, a video doorbell and a smart lock into the door system. They employ patent-pending, Underwriters Laboratories (UL) certified technology that connects residential exterior doors to a home’s electrical system and wireless internet network.
It is a fully powered system providing reliable “always on” smart technology and lighting. Additionally, in the event of a power outage, an emergency backup battery can sustain system power up to 24 hours when fully charged.
An exclusive M-Pwr smartphone app enables homeowners to remotely program and control motion-activated LED lighting. The app can also alert the homeowner when the door is open or closed and confirm its state at any time, providing peace of mind that they are always connected and always protected.
Masonite has collaborated with best-in-class technology leaders to create the first edition of M-Pwr Smart Doors. It integrates Ring Video Doorbells and Yale Home smart locks without the need for individual device batteries.

As aftermarket products, smart home devices create aesthetic issues. They have the bulky appearance of something which was added on, not built in. Smart locks and video doorbells are also limited in the amount of lighting they can provide. This may result in unsafe conditions when accessing a home in the dark. Lastly, standalone devices are limited due to battery life. Features like video surveillance and remote lock access are only as reliable as the individual batteries which power the devices.
By connecting devices to the home’s power through the door system, there is never a need for device batteries. Even in a power outage, the backup battery in the door supplies power for up to 24 hours when fully charged. By integrating the devices into the door, the appearance is sleek and beautiful. And the LED welcome lighting, which can be controlled directly from the M-Pwr smartphone app, provides plenty of light for safe, secure access.
