Based on construction plans, a 3D model of the building, the blinds and surrounded objects will be created. This 3D model is the basis for the simulation of the shadow of the building and its environment. The simulation is performed for every minute of the whole year.
Based on the simulation and different run time parameters, all blinds are controlled automatically. The control logic can be adapted to the needs of the building owner. In addition to the current weather situation, other parameters like a manual override or special operating and safety modes can be considered.
Considering the weather situation
One or more weather stations determine the current weather situation. You are free to choose any weather station. You might also use sophisticated stations, which measure the current global solar radiation.
The blinds can be controlled individually or per group.
In addition of the position of the blinds, also the position of the slats can be controlled automatically. The slat adjustment is controlled according to the elevation and azimuth angle of the sun.
In addition to the automatic control, you can also control the blinds manually. We can adapt the manual override to your project-specific needs.
Dynamic calculation of the brightness threshold
To include the current weather situation, you can define a brightness threshold and a hysteresis for each shading group. Dynamic adjustment of the threshold according to the elevation angle of the sun can avoid a glaring due to a low position of the sun.
