Managing Daylight – Using automated solar shading to improve building efficiency, wellbeing and productivity
This seminar will provide an introduction to how the automation and control of solar shading (such as blinds) can contribute to a daylight management strategy in all types of commercial buildings. It explains how automation captures both the positive benefits of daylight and also manages its negative impacts, such as glare and overheating.

By the end of the presentation you should have a greater understanding of:
- The benefits of automated shading to manage daylight
- The topology of the solution and how it works in practice
- The benefits to managing daylight for occupant well-being
