In homes all around the country, you’ll find smart devices of every kind. Smartphones, smart TVs, smart speakers, smart thermostats, and every other type of device you can imagine. But did you know that there’s another type of smart technology available along with smart devices? Smart window film. Smart film is a versatile solution that combines technology with the science of window tinting, allowing the transition between privacy and openness with the simple press of a button or switch. 

Benefits of Smart Film 

There are several benefits to using smart window film:

  • Versatility 
  • Improves Comfort
  • Saves Energy & Money
  • Fights Fading


Not only can smart tints be used in both residential and commercial applications, but they can also be applied to windows, doors, and any other glass area where you want to control light or privacy. These films transition between frosted and clear with the press of a button. You can use an app, remote control, voice control, home automation system, motion sensor, or timer to switch between the opaque and transparent film. Whether you want to adjust the amount of light in a room or add privacy at certain times of the day, smart film puts the power in your hands. 

Improves Comfort

Although smart film’s primary benefit is the ability to change at any given time, it also improves comfort. Applying smart film lowers solar heat in homes and buildings by up to 40% and blocks as much as 98% of UV rays. By helping maintain interior temperatures, the film helps keep occupants comfortable all year long. Not to mention, window film reduces glare to lessen eye strain and prevent discomfort. 

Saves Energy & Money

As smart window film blocks solar heat, it also works to conserve energy. The increased efficiency lessens the load on heating and cooling systems, leading to more money in your pocket. Reduce utility bills and cut down on energy usage at the same time through smart window tinting. 

Fights Fading 

Over time, the sun’s harsh UV rays, solar heat, and visible light damage flooring, artwork, textiles, and other valuables by causing them to fade in color. Smart film blocks as much as 98% of damaging UV rays and reflects solar heat and light to fight against fading. By protecting against fading, you can protect interiors and valuables to keep them looking like new for longer.
