The advantages of electrochromic glazing

The advantages of electrochromic glazing are numerous, both in the industrial and residential sectors. It allows to limit the number of elements present on the facade. It also allows the occupants of a building to benefit from natural light without having to suffer from glare or heat. Electrochromic glazing means smart glazing. It is a glazing that can tint itself depending on the external light. You do not have to think about anything anymore, your windows adapt automatically to optimize your comfort. However, you can also choose to control the intensity of its opacity on your own thanks to the Halio app or a remote control. But first, let’s go back to how Halio glass works.

How does electrochromic glazing work?

Thanks to its advanced technology, smart glass tints itself depending on the sunlight. The latter is measured using a sensor that is installed outside a property, a facility or, more generally, a building. This sensor is in communication with the glazing via the cloud and transmits information about the ambient sunlight. The glazing is tinted automatically when the sensor measures excessive brightness. Conversely, when the sensor identifies the sunrays as weaker, then the Halio glass takes on a more transparent shade.

If you wish, you can also adjust the colour of the glazing on your own. Halio Glass windows have 9 different shades, adjustable according to your wishes. Thanks to our application or your remote control, you can adjust the intensity of the opacity of all windows in your building at your fingertips. This system allows you to have total control of the incoming brightness of your building.
