Making Digital Displays a Seamless Part of the Smart Home

24 Nov 2020
Cast your mind back just a couple of years and the home of the future felt like something most commonly found in a sci-fi film. Yet advances in smart technology mean that the home of the future isn’t light-years away, in fact high technology homes are becoming increasingly common as our reliance on digital screens for work, socialising and entertainment increases.
As we spend more time at home, digital displays have become essential to our home life in 2020. Recent research by techUK shows that two-thirds of UK consumers own at least one smart home product, and that sales of core home products like smart doorbells, sensors and lights have grown by 15% or more year-on-year.

As a nation, we’re embracing technology around the home and looking for slick solutions that make our homes and our lives much more comfortable.

As a pioneer in advanced glass solutions, Pilkington United Kingdom is at the forefront of supporting the function of technology around the home, with mirrors that take on new digital capabilities too.

Pilkington MirroView™ is a pioneering glazing product that allows you to conceal digital displays and video screens behind a highly reflective mirror coating. It is ideal for any room where there is low ambient light, such as bathrooms, kitchens and living rooms. Its concealing effect means you can hide the fact that there is a screen and soften with the aesthetics of a mirror. 

Its innovative technology changes the way digital displays and video screens are seen. Pilkington MirroView™ looks like a normal mirror when the screen is 'off', but when the screen is 'on', the image shows through the mirror for a clear view of the screen beneath.

As digital displays become an ever-present feature of our lives, and as our properties become more connected with digital technology, we’re finding new ways to optimise the glass screens and surfaces within our homes.

Pilkington MirroView™ is ideal for hiding screens and adding more connectivity and convenience to living spaces while achieving a modern, transitional look. Making it the perfect solution for homeowners who want to embrace the future of smart technology.
