Are you tired of conventional window treatments like drapes and blinds that can be high maintenance? Do you want the luxury of instant privacy at your fingertips? Then smart glass and smart film may be the perfect solution for you!

Smart glass and smart film are both innovative glass technologies that switch from clear to frosted instantly, providing you with a lot of privacy and shade when you need it. But before you go ahead and make an online purchase, there are a few things you need to know to make an informed decision.

Project Type

The first thing you need to consider is what type of project you have in mind. Is it for residential or commercial purposes? Do you need to modify existing glass panels or install new ones altogether? Understanding your requirements will help you decide on the best smart glass for your project.

Privacy glass is best for new constructions or instances where the glass needs to be replaced. It contains the switchable PDLC layer laminated between two pieces of laminated and tempered safety glass.

Privacy window film is the best option for existing glass surfaces. It is simply applied to the glass like a screen protector is to a smartphone and voila! You have switchable glass.

Not all smart glass is made equal. Always ensure that you purchase from a reputable and reliable manufacturer to ensure that the quality of the product is up to your standards. Smart glass can be a sizable investment, depending on the quantity required, so it's imperative to ensure that you get a durable and long-lasting product.


As with any purchase, the price is a crucial factor. Smart glass varies significantly in cost, and it's essential to find the right balance between cost and quality. Don't be fooled by the cheapest option or the most expensive one. Instead, find a manufacturer who offers the best value for your budget. At Smart Glass Country, we are proud to offer the best ratio of quality to price. 

Order Requirements

You also need to know the dimensions of the glass area in question and the quantity you require for each size. This information affects the base price, and ordering in bulk can help lower costs. Additionally, make sure you know the voltage requirements, the number of transformers you will need, and any other unique requirements for your project. Read this article for more information on the cost of smart glass.

Ease of Ordering and Delivery

Smart glass orders take time to produce and deliver compared to smart film. Make sure you understand the lead time for delivery before placing your order and any other important details regarding delivery. Additionally, find a manufacturer that provides excellent customer support to make the ordering process a smooth one.

Customer Support

Good customer support is vital when investing in smart glass or smart film. Ensure that you have access to expert advice and support before and after your purchase. A knowledgeable customer support team is a sign of a reliable and trustworthy switchable glass manufacturer.

The Installation Process

Smart film and glass are both versatile and can be installed on all kinds of glass surfaces, including operable glass doors and windows. The technology can also be used on curved glass and unique window shapes. However, all wiring should be done by a certified electrician to ensure safety and optimal performance.

Smart Glass Country has over a decade of experience with all kinds of installation scenarios. Our clever smart glass wiring solutions will give your end result a clean, minimalist look with no visible wires.

Finding an Installer

You may need to find a local installer to help with the installation, depending on your project and location. Research window tint professionals to install smart glass or glaziers if you will be working with smart film. Smart Glass Country has an established network of installers across the United States and Canada who may be able to assist you. If you order from us, we will help you find one. 


Always look for a manufacturer who offers a solid warranty that covers your product and provides peace of mind. Look for brands that back their products with a warranty and obtain a copy of it to review before making your purchase.

Maintenance and Upkeep

While smart glass and smart film are low-maintenance alternatives to conventional window treatments, it's essential to know that the technology needs to be switched off for at least 12 hours every 48 hours to ensure optimal performance and longevity. Make sure you follow these instructions to maintain your privacy glass and film and enjoy the luxury of privacy on demand for decades.

In conclusion, if you are looking for an innovative, luxurious, and low-maintenance solution to enhance privacy in your home or office space, look no further than smart glass and smart film. Remember to consider all the factors mentioned above to make an informed decision for your project.
