Everyone needs privacy in every phase of their life at the home, office, or wherever they go. Privacy is a concern for a human being. Nobody prefers a public gaze into their private life. This was one of the challenges man faced from every vertex, but with the introduction of Switchable Glass, one can divert the public gaze away from a property or create privacy within the home, office, etc. Switchable glass can replace the curtains and plain glass used at home or offices to create more private space. Once the Switchable glass window is installed, one need not worry about the curtains or shades being washed and cleaned all the time. The switchable glass allows you to get your privacy when you need it by being able to switch from transparent to opaque at a flip of a button.
Implementing the Switchable Glass at trial rooms also provides easiness to the customers. For example, a customer wants to trial a dress. After the trial, usually, a person comes out to show the person who came along with him. This can be avoided if the trial room is surrounded by switchable glass. They can just flip the button to change the window’s opacity.
The main challenge that occurred during the development of the Switchable Smart Glass solution was gaining uninterrupted connectivity to the LCD hardware device. The switchable glass is an innovative solution, which has to be implemented with great care. This can only be accomplished if the connectivity between the hardware device and the switchable glass is uninterrupted. Otherwise, the switchable glass will not function as per its desired purpose.Another challenge that occurred during the development of this product was finding a good cost-effective way for installation. The scientific challenges that arose in the development of the Switchable Glass solution were related to the LCD hardware.
Switchable Glass is a smartphone application developed in android and iOS platforms that controls your Switchable LCD privacy glass from your device. This application is simple and easy to use for even a kid by just pairing the switchable glass with the application. This application does not have any login or any other functionalities, and it is only used to control the opacity of switch-able glass. Once the application is successfully paired with the switchable glass, one can adjust the button in the application to control the opacity from 0 to 100 percent. If users adjust to 0 percent, then the switchable window will become transparent completely. The opacity of the window can be controlled between 0 and 100 in the application.
The application cannot be used to pair with the switchable glass. The pairing of the application with the switchable glass needed to be done separately
The application can only be used to control the switchable glass
The Switchable LCD Privacy Glass is a smart device that can be controlled through the application. This means you do not need to get involved in any technical aspects of installing or managing the switchable window, which is one of its main strengths.
Easily control your Switchable LCD privacy glass from your Smartphone application without having to install any third-party hardware or software.

The customer’s need for advanced glass systems is growing rapidly. The traditional plain glasses and curtains used at the home or office have a lot of disadvantages concerning privacy. For example, you are at the office and want to conduct a meeting and if your office room wall is surrounded by plain glass, one can expect a public gaze. This can be avoided by replacing it with the smart glass known as Switchable glass. Implementing smart glass in your home or office is worth a long go even though it is expensive. Smart glasses take care of one’s privacy with the flexibility to change from a transparent to opaque state.
