SEOUL, May 26 (Korea Bizwire) — LG Hausys has launched a smart window whose functions, including opening and closing, setting alarms, ventilation and lighting can be controlled by a smartphone.
The company announced on May 25 that users can open and close its new ‘Smart Window’ wherever they are, through a smartphone app.
Users can also receive alarms through the application when their Smart Window is opened by force.
The Smart Window can also change its shade from transparent to non-transparent. Additional curtains will be unnecessary as the window itself can block sunlight or unwanted eyes.
LG Hausys achieved these functions by using polymer dispersed liquid crystal whose light transmittance changes with electric currents.
The featured auto ventilation system can be synced with other in-door air quality sensing appliances to automatically adjust ventilation.
Although some window treatment companies in Europe have introduced smart windows featuring one or two remote-controlled technologies, LG Hausys is the first to have introduced an integrative smart window whose five technological features and three design features are patent-pending.
