Benefits of View Smart Windows

View was built on the understanding that natural light is required to live a healthy and productive life. Ordinary windows are far from optimized, unable to effectively reduce glare and heat. View Smart Windows have been proven to improve people's health and wellness by increasing their access to natural light.

Studies from Cornell, University of Illinois and SUNY Medical Center show that participants with View Smart Windows experience:

What are View Smart Windows?

View Smart Windows increase access to daylight and views by automatically tinting throughout the day based on the position of the sun. View eliminates blinds and minimizes, heat, glare and exposure to pathogens. 

How does it work?

View Smart Windows utilize electrochromic technology and a predictive software algorithm called Intelligence. With Intelligence, windows respond automatically so that tenants can enjoy the views and daylight without lifting a finger. The key factors affecting glass tint include the depth of sun shining into the space, the amount of heat passing through the windows, and the cloud cover and reflections from nearby buildings.
