"SmartSkin" comes from the concept of comparing the building envelope to the skin of your body, as they should both have the same function: use external factors to protect and improve internal functionality. Our SmartSkin facade uses natural daylight, air and temperature in order to improve the indoor climate of a building for its users, while also reducing the energy consumption of it. SmartSkin is made up of "SmartWindows" with integrated sun shading or air ventilation systems. Together, they act as a stand-alone system that takes care of a building. SmartWindows have frames with integrated sensors and solar cells, that allows dual functionality: (1) sensors collect humidity, temperature and lux data from external environments and communicate it to the sunblind or air systems, that accurately work with nature to improve indoor environments, reducing the unnecessary energy use of a facade. (2) the solar cells produce the energy for those systems to operate on, which reduces the entire energy consumption of the facade.
