SageGlassR Voice Control Capabilities
SageGlass®, pioneer of the world’s smartest electrochromic glass, announces that its dynamic glass is now able to be integrated with voice controlled speaker systems. Building occupants can now control the dynamic glass tint via simple voice commands to optimise daylight and outdoor views while preventing heat gain and glare.
This offering is expected to be integrated into larger building management systems so building owners and facilities managers can manage SageGlass along with other voice-enabled smart devices in the building.
“The use of technologies such as voice commands in buildings is growing in popularity as building owners place more emphasis on occupant comfort, convenience and productivity,” said Adrian Gallagher, SageGlass UK Specification Manager. “It was the next natural step in the technological progression for SageGlass as an added benefit to building owners and occupants. I look forward to sharing this feature with existing customers and new users in the UK.”
SageGlass’ integration with voice-controlled systems provides occupants with additional flexibility so they can control the dynamic tinting of the glass without the need for facilities management intervention, a wall switch or mobile app. Occupants can ask SageGlass to reduce glare, and watch the glass tint in accordance with the command. SageGlass provides smart building installation documentation and sample codes, detailing how it can also be integrated with other building management components.
SageGlass completed its first Amazon Echo integration at the Saint-Gobain North American Headquarters in Malvern, Pa, USA.
