Halio is a natural light management system, connecting glass windows to a cloud to adapt to the user’s preference history and weather conditions.It has a neutral clear state & can tint in less than 3 minutes to its darkest shade while keeping the outdoor connection.The transition can be interrupted at any stage & the system is controlled via voice commands, app or keypad.This is compelling for both interior rooms where privacy is needed & exterior applications (facades and skylights), as it provides the ability to cut heat & glare, reducing HVAC loads and the dependence on internal lighting.
