Problem Statement: Buildings need to automate/control light.
Light inspires us and we have got used to light with blinds but they create glare and heat that can be uncomfortable for your workspace. Windowlogy allows you to automate shades, tints , display video, project opacity, transparency, colour, even logos.
With Windowlogy you can get that amazing view back, you feel more comfortable, inspired, and you can create a more dynamic workspace. Hospitals can harvest daylight for their patience for healing. You can automate opacity for certain times of day and also it helps to interfere with the see-through from the outside but complete visible from the inside and instantly becomes private. on your window by adding what I like to call “Spaces”.
Windowlogy helps buildings to automate shades, change tints , or display videos or pictures on your window by adding spaces either in a conference room, bedroom or office.
