You can electronically tint your skylights offering control of the amount of light and heat entering a room by using SageGlass’ electrochromic technology. The skylight panes are made by coating glass with multiple layers of a thin ceramic film that is less than 1/50th the thickness of a human hair. By applying a low DC voltage, the active electrochromic layers darken and reversing the voltage polarity causes the layers to lighten.
Add a little home automation ingenuity or hacking and you can automatically have the skylights darken when the temperature reaches a certain level outside or in the room with skylights. Be the envy of your technologists friends with this technology in your home.
The SageGlass Venting Skylight lets you electronically tint your skylights to offer full control of the amount of light and heat that enters a room. Using electrochromic glass technology, the skylight glass tints from clear to dark to keep out the heat of sun without losing the view to the sky, all at the touch of a button. Energy savings and elimination of uncomfortable heat gain is possible even on the brightest and hottest days; and you receive the benefit of maximum protection against fading from direct sunlight on your furniture, and carpet. Best of all, it requires less energy to tint a houseful of SageGlass skylights than it does to power a single 40-watt incandescent light bulb.
