Windows are the most obvious yet neglected aspect of connected buildings when it comes to making smarter living and working spaces. From San Diego to Singapore, Columbus, OH to Copenhagen, municipalities have been making a variety of smart city moves, all centrally controlled to improve safety, traffic congestion, energy-consumption and habitability.
A selection of the best uses of tech to be found at MIPIM this year. Halio, dynamic windows that tint according to the light conditions or when the building manager decides. The tint takes three minutes to complete and happens evenly across the pane. Sensors can be added to the roof to monitor sunlight strength, or to door handles to tint to black when someone enters the room, a bathroom for instance.
Over the course of the year property technology, or proptech in short – was omnipresent, with developers, investors and city shapers looking to capitalise on new innovations in order to transform the way we communicate, commute, consume and create.
David Yim, Sales and Marketing Senior Manager, Halio International, sees advantages for existing buildings to be retrofitted with advanced technology in 2019, turning them greener and smarter.
