Zuli | June 12th, 2015
We’re very excited to announce our third partnership today:
Zuil Smartplugs now work with SPD-SmartGlass technology, a Research Frontiers company.
Using Zuli’s Presence technology, you can now walk into a room with your smartphone in your pocket, and have the glass in your windows instantly go from an energy-saving dark tint, to crystal clear in addition to having your lights, appliances and temperature adjust.
You can also use the Zuli app to control your window tint from your phone. SPD-Smart technology is the leading smart glass technology that gives users the ability to instantly and precisely control the level of shading to any point between very dark and clear.
We wanted to pursue a partnership with SPD-SmartGlass because we see the smart window as a key player in creating a more comfortable and energy efficient environment in the home.
SPD-SmartGlass blocks harmful UV rays at all times, despite the selected tint. By more effectively controlling daylight, SPD-Smart windows also allow “daylight harvesting,” which is estimated to save 35%-60% on lighting energy.
“We were delighted when Research Frontiers approached us to partner in our vision, especially since their SPD-SmartGlass technology has become the best-performing and best-selling smart window technology in the world,” said Taylor.
This integrated experience adds value to the at-home user experience greatly adding to user comfort, security, and protecting home interiors.
“The [partnership] works efficiently and elegantly, and is simple to set up while being functional, scalable and versatile,” said Joseph M. Harary, President and CEO of Research Frontiers
SPD-Smart windows are available in glass or plastic and can be controlled manually or automatically, and are currently being used in the automotive, architectural, aircraft and marine industries, and to protect priceless artifacts in museums from damage from visible light.
In a unique display of SPD-SmartGlass technology, the smart glass has been selected as the exclusive smart glass for the USA Pavilion at the Milan World’s Fair. Check out their display here.
