​We utilized the unusual crystallization process of perovskites along with their tunable optical properties to design a simple synthesis of inks for TC applications. These inks exhibit a completely reversible chromatic variation ranging from yellow to black as the temperature increases from 25 to 120 °C. These properties pave the way for a new class of smart windows and camouflage coatings with an unprecedented range of color based on hybrid metal halide perovskites.​​
