Automated Blinds

Most office blinds are controlled manually and rather inefficiently. Users keep them closed at all times losing natural light or leave them open increasing thermal load and light pollution at night. At eFACiLiTY® in SIERRA ODC, SOMFY tracking system or Shadow management tracks the trajectory of the sun and external light conditions to raise and lower the blinds. It also controls the angles of the blinds to maximize daylight entry while controlling glare and heat gain. Better natural light and great views improve employee productivity. Efficient management of the heat load brings down the burden on air conditioning and saves power. The eFACiLiTY® app enables user to manually control the blinds too, when required.
