Introducing HALIO

The World’s Most Advanced Smart Glass

What is HALIO?

HALIO is the world’s most advanced smart glass system.

We produce an ultra-thin electronic layer that is built inside your insulated glass unit. It’s invisible when clear and uses on-premise control devices to autonomously alter a window’s visible light transmission, tinting them cool gray in 3 minutes or less in response to the weather or when you request it to change tint levels.

How does HALIO do it?

We’ve made it so simple it’s like nature.

HALIO keeps tabs on the sun to establish window transparency.
The windows are connected through low-voltage wires to control electronics that communicate with our control brain in the cloud. The sophisticated control system directs the electrochromic (EC) device layer inside the window to uniformly tint in about three minutes or less when a cloud comes along and reverse back to a clearer window state just as fast.

What do I get with HALIO?

HALIO Smart Glass is like sunscreen for your home, passively protecting your family and your investment.
Depending on the sun and how you set HALIO, comfort and wellness in your home are elevated, while the absence of blinds leaves just stunning views of Vancouver.
