Chan Hoyle, national marketing and communications manager for Velux, says the apps give home owners, builders, remodellers, decorators, architects, installers and others a hand-held tool that shows exactly how different skylights will look in a specific location. “You simply take a picture with your device of the room location you’re considering for a skylight. Then choose from a built-in photo gallery of skylights to place, position and size the units. You can see exactly how it would look in your chosen location,” says Hoyle. When you’re ready to move forward, the apps contain a GPS-based installer locator.
