DAYSIM Shading Control Modes, Idealized Automated Control


I am simulating blinds that behave according to the amount of radiation on the surface of the window and I need to input radiation thresholds to simulate its behavior in reality, now I wonder should I do it with Idealized Automated Control?

is there any possibility to set thresholds for outdoor sensor according to the amount of radiation it gets on vertical surface?

As you have have probably figured it out already you can use a sensor to control blinds in Daysim. To represent a vertical surface sensor you just need to make sure the normal is a horizontal.

Thanks a lot dear Mostapha

Do I need to run glare analysis in order to set outdoor sensors?

Is there any sample file that I can have a look?
