SmarterShade (Lono LLC)
SmarterShade (Lono LLC)

Using our proprietary light-control technology, products like windows, skylights and rearview mirrors can be instantly adjusted to go from clear to dark, with adjustable tint in-between. These devices can even be controlled to transition between clear and mirrored states.
The result is an aesthetically pleasing look that enhances privacy and energy efficiency. SmarterShade products do not require any electricity and may be designed as built-in or after-market products.
Imagine - being able to electronically darken a window with the flip of a switch. This is SmarterShade.
