Choices of Smart Glass for Homes

Smart glass provides privacy and reduces noise

Glass for homes has evolved, extending now to several versions of so-called smart glass. Smart glass provides privacy and reduces noise, and can lower cooling costs, among other benefits. LC Privacy Glass is switchable and changes from opaque to transparent at the touch of a button. It consists of two panels and a film between them that conducts electricity. The glass remains opaque until the voltage is turned on, which activates the film and gives the glass transparency.

Anthony Branscum of Innovative Glass Corp in Plainview, New York, told the Wall Street Journal that “homeowners exposed to smart glass at their workplaces want similar glass for their homes. We’ve seen more and more consumer-driven requests for the product.”
