HALIO solves the problem of managing daylight by reducing solar heat, minimizing glare, and blocking UV while maximizing window-to-wall ratios. No need for shades or curtains. See your world unobstructed.

We develop and manufacture the world’s most advanced electrochromic technology. Our autonomously tinting smart glass reacts in real-time, uniformly, offering 101 levels (in cool grays), transitioning in 3 minutes, from clear to fully tinted. It is controlled by an AI cloud-based system with minimal on-premise electronics and a Sky Camera that seamlessly integrates into any smart building management system.

HALIO delivers energy savings, increases property value, enables tax credits, and enhances occupant productivity and wellness, while allowing architects the greatest freedom of design choice with unobstructed views.

The LEED Gold life sciences campus houses research labs and offices in two Class-A buildings totaling 315,000 square feet. Managed daylight creates a more productive environment, lab-friendly environment with unobstructed views.

Our employees appreciate that they do not have to get up to let down or adjust blinds and are able to keep working at their workstations without disruptions due to intensity of the sun or heat.
