The Marvin Awaken Skylight was built to harness light and air in new ways and is now available in select markets. This smart skylight window is the first to offer built in, tunable lighting that mimics the ideal color temperature of natural light to provide the right light at the right time. It’s unique, connected features make it easy to live better.

Bring your Awaken vision to life.

Place wireless wall switches at convenient locations in a room without the need for internet access, mobile apps or electrical wiring. Magnetic backing makes it easy to remove and use as a remote.


Want to open the unit, tune the lighting temperature, or adjust the shade? Just ask. In addition to wall switches, remotes, and an app, Awaken’s connected features can all be controlled with smart home systems like Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and Samsung SmartThings.


The Awaken App is equipped with pre-programmed modes that tune the supplemental lighting automatically. For example, wake up to Bright Morning mode, which creates gradually brighter, cooler light. Or wind down with Night Time mode, which gently dims and warms the light.

Design Options

  • Exterior Finish

    Exterior Fiberglass Finish

    Built for durability and low maintenance, our Ultrex® coatings are three times thicker than competitive finishes. These protective coatings have a smooth consistency, and even the darkest colors resist fading, chalking, peeling, and cracking.

    The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) awards certifications to materials that pass numerous, rigorous tests. These tests simulate the harsh conditions that a finish will encounter throughout the life of the window or door. Passing these specification tests and achieving AAMA 624 verification gives independent confirmation that the Ultrex finish is best in class among fiberglass products.

  • Interior Finish

    Interior Fiberglass Finish

    The Ultrex® pultruded fiberglass interior features a durable, low-maintenance finish in Stone White.

  • Mounting Options

    Each Awaken unit is shipped with the flashing and hardware necessary for installation on a curb or directly to the decking. This minimizes ordering mistakes which can cost money and cause project delays.

  • Glass

    Awaken skylights are equipped with dual layers of glazing. For your protection, the exterior glass (outboard) is tempered, which increases its strength and ability to withstand impacts. The indoor layer (inboard) is laminated, which means the glass will hold together in the event of severe impact.

    Awaken’s glass is also treated in Low E3 coatings. These microscopically thin, essentially invisible coatings on the glass surface help manage the amount of heat radiation that passes through a window pane or reflected away from it, reducing a home’s dependence on heat and air conditioning.

  • Screens

    Clear views of the outside world give us a sense of place and calm, which is why we designed Awaken’s patent-pending screen into the frame. As the unit projects outward, the screen shields the side openings from insects and debris. No part of Awaken’s glass is ever covered by a screen. The result is an expansive and obscured view of the sky.

  • Shades

    Both the room-darkening and light-filtering optional shades are fully integrated and exclusively designed for Awaken skylights. They are built with durable, UV-resistant fabric and are protected by a 5-year warranty. Easily control your shading with a user-friendly app, wall switches, or smart home systems like Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and Samsung SmartThings.

  • Fixed Skylight

    If venting is not part of your design vision, consider a non-venting, or fixed Awaken. Tunable lighting, VOC sensors, integrated shades, and smart home features are all available on a fixed unit, and the exterior profiles are the same as a venting Awaken. This allows you to combine both types and maintain visual continuity on the roof lines.
