SPD-Smart Windows Offer Extreme Light Control on Tonight's 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' on ABC

During a special live broadcast of ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," a New York apartment and its occupants will become smarter as they enjoy the many benefits of light-control as SPD-Smart windows brighten their day.

The VaryFast(TM) SPD-Smart windows and partitions featured on the show allow you to instantly "tune" the tint of the glass between clear and dark states to save energy and more effectively use daylighting as a design element. By controlling sunlight and the bright city lights, users can enjoy an unprecedented combination of glare reduction, tunable shading, UV protection, energy-savings, and greater privacy and security - benefits that collectively are distinctive to SPD-Smart windows.

"Natural lighting is extremely important to consumers - and a luxury in New York City," said Joe Harary, President of Research Frontiers, the developer of this smart glass technology. "SPD-Smart window products offer all the benefits of natural light, while enabling users to instantly regulate light, heat and glare without the view-blocking effects of blinds, drapes or shades. Turn a knob, press a button on a remote control, or have the glass automatically adjust, and you now can control the light passing through your windows."

In just under one week, eight custom-sized VaryFast(TM) SPD-Smart(TM) windows and partitions were ordered, manufactured and delivered by LTI SmartGlass. Then, in a few short hours, a focused crew from Long Island-based Innovative Glass Corporation had to install these state-of-the-art smart windows featured on tonight's episode of ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
