1. A system for controlling one or more switchable optical devices, comprising:
(a) a plurality of switchable optical devices;
(b) a remote user device operatively coupled to the plurality of switchable optical devices; and
(c) one or more window controllers, coupled with at least one of the plurality of switchable optical devices, wherein:
the remote user device includes a touch screen user interface configured to generate a display on the touch screen user interface showing a physical arrangement of the plurality of switchable optical devices that allows a user to select and/or recognize the at least one of the plurality of switchable optical devices that require adjustment, and the one or more window controllers are configured to:
(i) communicate with the remote user device via wireless control signals; and
(ii) control at least one optical characteristic of a respective one of the plurality of switchable optical devices based at least in part on user input received by the wireless control signals.
