With the emergence of smartphones, smart thermostats, as well as other smart gadgets and appliances, California’s View Dynamic Glass also thought “why not smart windows?” So how smart are their windows?
This state-of-the-art smart window features double-pane window glass technology that consists of layers of electromagnetic materials and semi-conductors. These layers are thinner than hair strands and are responsible for blocking the sun’s glare and infrared radiation or heat. What makes this a smarter window compared to its competitors? The developers claim that, using your smartphone, you can program it to track the sun and to dim to a certain level based on changing conditions.
When privacy is not much of a concern, such as in residences and offices in high-rise buildings, this smart window simply eliminates the need for blinds and curtains, giving you uninterrupted view outside minus the sun’s glare and heat.
