Protected Home is the consumer products division of Control Products, Inc., a world leader in electronic design and manufacturing with factories in Minnesota and China.
Control Products was founded in 1985 and became an Emerson Climate Technologies company in 2010.
We have grown to become a global manufacturing and distribution company with three primary business segments:
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.
We look forward to protecting your home with our home protection products. Please let us know if you have a product idea or improvement we can make to one of our products. Call us at 800-880-6000 or send us an email with your ideas.
