SAGE recently announced the launch of a new mobile app for electronically tintable SageGlass, a product of Saint-Gobain. The new app, which debuted at the AIA Convention in Atlanta,  lets Adam.Hill.House.Residential.P1040542users customize and optimize daylight for comfort inside residential and commercial buildings.

The new SageGlass mobile app is compatible with Apple iOS and Android devices. It allows building occupants to orchestrate customized daylighting “scenes” by controlling the SageGlass zones. The pre-established zoning can range from an entire building facade, to a single SageGlass window. The app also enables the user to control and tint specific zones within a SageGlass window.

SageGlass is electrochromic dynamic glass that tints and clears on demand or automatically to block up to 99 percent of visible light without obstructing the view and connection to the outdoors, according to the company. SageGlass saves energy and improves the way people experience daylight in buildings by modulating the amount of light, heat gain and glare that enters the indoor environment.

The new SageGlass mobile app also provides building owners with the ability to manage how users interact with SageGlass to retain greater administrative control over window operation. Administrators can assign access and control rights to specific users for specific SageGlass locations to manage who and how the windows can be tinted.

“Dynamic windows like SageGlass are enabling people to actively control their environment in a building when and how they want,” said Derek Malmquist, VP marketing for SageGlass. “As windows become part of the “Internet of Things”, they are gaining intelligence and connectivity to contribute to the energy performance and daylighting strategies of smart building design. Because conditions change day-by-day, and even hour-by-hour, the new mobile app enables users to strike the right balance for delivering daylight and comfort into an occupied space without the sun’s undesirable side effects.”
