La Croisée DS is one of the leading suppliers of accessories for doors and windows made of wood, aluminum and PVC. The French company is well-known for its very stylish and contemporary product designs while also meeting all relevant technical requirements and standards.

As part of the further development of its products, La Croisée DS places great emphasis on connectivity and is constantly adding new features. The eSarena window handle fits seamlessly into this strategy.

Compatible with smart home systems

eSarena is based on the PTM 535 radio transmitter module from EnOcean. It is able to transmit a telegram – using very little energy – to indicate the position of the handle on any door or window. eSarena is compatible with the majority of smart home hubs available on the market.

The new sensor in the handle allows it to automatically switch off air conditioning when a window is opened, thus saving energy. Additionally, it can warn a resident that a door or window has been opened even though no one’s home.

Due to its design and patent mechanism, installation is very user-friendly and the handle blends in perfectly with its surroundings. Of course, it easily connects to any smart home system.
