Halio Inc. to Showcase AI-controlled Smart Glass at CES 2022

Halio, a smart window manufacturer, will be exhibiting in the “Green Avenue” section of the SK CES 2022 booth located in the Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall, Booth 16761. The support of energy efficient technology, wellness solutions, and a focus on ESG―Environmental, Social, and Governance―are shared by SK, a lead investor in Halio Inc., and Halio.

Halio's electrochromic glass solution addresses the ten must-haves for architects, developers, and environmentalists as they formulate strategies to achieve net zero buildings, say officials. The smart glass is the first to address critical design and performance issues, including clear and tint color, responsiveness and speed, tint uniformity, and cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI) for autonomous operation. Halio’s AI determines the maximum amount of daylight that can enter the building in real-time to deliver up to 20 percent energy savings and minimizing glare management that leads to occupant wellness. 

Architects and developers are additionally drawn to the Halio Smart Glass because its hermetically sealed EC device enables it to be integrated into third-party windows with a variety of coatings and has proven durability and performance, even if the window seals fail. Halio has a neutral grey tint instead of the blue tint prevalent in other systems, and when clear, is indistinguishable from ordinary low-emissivity glass.

The cloud-based control system future-proofs the investment in system electronics while facilitating easy integration into building management systems such as Siemen’s Connect Ecosystem, including Desigo CC and related platforms, Amazon Alexa, Crestron, Apple Homekit, and other IoT systems.

The Halio Solution includes the industry’s most advanced smart glass, connected to on-premise tint controllers, communications gateways, and sky camera daylight sensors. A cloud-based AI autonomously controls the system, reacting to daylight changes in real-time and monitoring the façade tint levels to adjust tint algorithms over time.

After years of extensively studying electrochromic glass solutions, Viracon chose Halio as its EC technology partner. Viracon Plus Smart Glass powered by Halio is its new commercial smart glass.
