Honeywell, Sage to Develop 'Smart' Glass
MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Honeywell, based here, and Sage Electrochromics, Inc., have developed an agreement that they say will allow the companies to develop and introduce user-controllable window glass that will transform windows into comfort-enhancing and energy-saving appliances.
They said they expect to produce windows for test markets later this year.
Jay Schrankler, vice president of Honeywell Home and Comfort Systems, said, “Picture a window as an appliance, one that makes you dramatically more comfortable, saves you energy, and always lets you enjoy the view.”
“This alliance uniquely combines the technical breakthroughs of Sage’s elec-tronic window glass with Honeywell’s recognized leadership in building control technologies,” said John Van Dine, president and founder of Sage.
