How Does Smart Tint Work
Whether you are considering installing smart window tint for homes, offices, commercial locations, schools, and beyond, you are considering using one of the most advanced, versatile window enhancement products ever devised. Using the a mild electric charge and the natural tendency of liquid crystal particles to fall into a disordered state when not under charge, this window film can switch from clear and transparent to frosted and opaque literally at the flip of a switch. When an electric charge is running through a sheet of smart tint, the many minute liquid crystal particles sandwiched in the film are forced into orderly patterns, creating a clear surface through which you can easily see in and out. Once the charge is removed, the liquid crystal particles enter a disordered state that creates a frosted privacy film that is handsome, that allows light to pass through, yet through which a human eye can’t see.
Smart Tint Review
To review smart window tint installation and function, you first have to understand that this is a high performance window film that does come with an elevated cost. But that cost is offset by the fact that your smart window tint can serve as the only window dressing required, removing the need for blinds and/or curtains thanks to the privacy adjustable electric window film creates. We’ll discuss the cost of electric window film in a moment, but to review smart tint application, the process involves cutting and applying the film to your windows in your home or workplace, then sealing the edges of the smart tint with an electronic grade silicon. This material can transmit a current and also acts as a great insulator and waterproofing layer. The applied panels of smart tint are connected via wiring to a switch installed in a wall, and from that switch you can then control your glass windows and doors, changing them from clear and see-through to opaque and private, and even using a dimmer switch or dial to adjust the level of transparency or opacity you’d like.

Smart Tint Cost Per Square Foot
Electric adjustable smart window film is not a cheap product; this advanced, high-performance window tint is, however, a great investment that lasts for years and that offsets its cost through energy savings thanks to reduced solar heat and the fact that no blinds, drapes, or curtains are needed for privacy. Also, it has plenty of inherent value thanks to the amazing control it gives you over your windows. The price per square foot of smart tint varies based on the volume of tint needed and the type of installation at hand, but for a frame of reference, for a standard residential window (one that measures about three feet wide and four feet tall, for example) the cost of smart electric window film would be between $600 and $700 for materials alone. The more windows you need coated with smart tint, the lower your per square foot cost will be, of course.
