About Us

Popular mechanics award logoProtected Home is the consumer products division of Control Products, Inc., a world leader in electronic design and manufacturing with factories in Minnesota and China.

  • Standard Products: Off-the-shelf controls, alarms, indicators and sensors for temperature and humidity – used in HVAC, refrigeration, industrial and food service equipment applications.

Home Automation Cover GraphicProtected Home sells its products through retailers, catalog companies, on-line retailers, dealers and wholesale heating, plumbing, electrical and industrial supply distributors worldwide.

Protected Home is based in Chanhassen, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis.  Our several hundred employees enjoy golfing on our very own 2 hole golf course during our short, but warm summers.  Minnesota winters are legendary with International Falls, Minnesota often recording the coldest temperature in the nation on many days.  It is our Minnesota winters, however, that helped define our Protected Home division.  The FreezeAlarm was first introduced to the public in 1987.  This remote temperature-monitoring product has evolved to now include four models with our latest Wireless FreezeAlarm offering even the largest home affordable protection from frozen pipes.

Today, Protected Home manufactures and distributes remote temperature alarms, water alarms and home security and automation products throughout the world.  Our products have been featured on the Today Show, HGTV, countless local television news programs and our WaterAlarm Plus and MiniAlarm Plus were awarded the Popular Mechanics Editor’s Choice Award in 2006.  Home Automation magazine named our FreezeAlarm product line one of their Products of the Year in 2004.

Control Products is committed to protecting the environment and safeguarding its employees. We have taken progressive steps as a global manufacturer toward keeping our environment safe from harmful chemicals and giving our employees the benefits and resources to have enjoyable family lives.
