Natural light is an esential element of our lives. But to realize its benefits, this powerful energy source must be managed. In building construction, managing natural light has historically meant blocking it out, countering its heat with cooling systems, and leaving areas of buildings unoccupied. When that's not enough, building designers are forced to reduce window-to-wall ratio and alter design, materials, and aesthics to get by.
Halio changes everything. We areredfining our relationship with daylight. Our electrochromic (EC) technology, the world's most advanced and beautiful smart glass solution, enables active, responsive building facades to optimally and autonomously tint, saving energy, reducing glare, opening up more usable floorplate, and welcoming daylight indoors as the ultimate building amenity. Living with daylight inside enhances welleness, health and productivity.
Halio was designed to take EC to a new level -- tinting 10x faster, responding in seconds, eliminating yellow or blue color tints, tinting uniformly to an infinate level of tint stops, and being controlled autononously by a cloud-based learning AI.
As as result our solution looks like low-e glass when clear and a neutral gray when tinted, saves over 20% on energy, and blocks UV while reducing solar heat gain. Occupants enjoy reduced glare and unobstructed views in a healthier environment without blinds. Developers get more leasable square footage and higher value with daylight as an amenity, and architects can increase window-to-wall ratio and design for the aesthic they want while meeting building codes and a Net-Zero future.
Unlike other solutions, Halio's EC device is also hermetically sealed which increases durablility and quality, dampens noise, and enables trusted and established third-party glass fabricators to create smart windows that are powered by Halio, opening up the industry's supply and, for the first time, making smart glass a viable industry construction material.
Halio is based in Hayward CA with research and development in Salt Lake City, UT. Halio's EC device factory, based in Miaoli, Taiwan, is the industry's most advanced.
The Halio solution is comprised of Halio Smart Glass, the EC device, Halio on-premise sensors and tint control electronics, and the Halio Cloud, which includes the advanced AI, 24x7 service, and support. When not running autonomusly, Halio also offers user controls including web and phone apps, tint selectors, third-party controllers such as Alexa and HomeKit, and integrates into Building Management Systems including Siemens's Disego CC solution.
