We started by revitalizing something that hasn’t changed for centuries-the everyday window-and in so doing, built the technology foundation for responsive buildings that are more experiential, more human-centric, and more energy-efficient.

View Smart Windows use artificial intelligence to automatically adjust in response to the sun, eliminating the need for blinds to increase access to natural light and views, while improving thermal comfort. They also transform into transparent displays for remote collaboration, internet browsing and more-and come with a cloud-connected smart building platform that can easily be extended to improve indoor cellular coverage, enhance building security, and completely reimagine the occupant experience. The impact of our products is profound. View buildings are 20% more energy-efficient, and research has shown that employees working next to View Smart Windows experience half as many headaches, enjoy 37 more minutes of sleep per night, and are significantly more productive. Companies around the world-including Google, Netflix, Uber, Walmart, Stanford Health Care, and countless others-have already designed our products into 75M square feet of buildings. And we are just getting started! OUR CULTURE AND VALUES We are committed to our culture. We actively use our culture in how we conduct business.
