Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I control my LC Privacy Glass?
    LC Privacy Glass is user-controlled with the use of a simple wall switch, mobile device, or with voice commands using Alexa or Google Home. When switched ON, glass is Transparent — when switched OFF, glass is Private.
  • Is LC Privacy Glass transparent with the power ON or OFF? Can it be reversed?
    The glass is transparent when the power is ON. The operation cannot be reversed.
  • Is LC Privacy Glass as clear as regular glass?
    In its transparent state, switchable smart glass never reaches 100% clarity. There is always a certain amount of “haze” or cloudiness when in the “On” state. This varies by manufacturer, manufacturing processes and materials, and can be minimized by the lighting conditions and environment it is viewed in. (See document below "How to Minimize and Control Haze") Samples of our LC Privacy Glass are readily available and should be reviewed prior to purchase.
  • Does LC Privacy Glass come in shapes or curved configurations?
    LC Privacy Glass is available in most shapes and can be made using curved or bent glass.
