Window/Blinds state


Are we able to set the state of the window (open/close) and blinds (open/partial/close) in honeybee/ladybug?

Thank you,


The short answer is yes and yes. For blinds check “Honeybee_EnergyPlus Window Shade Generator” and for closing and opening windows check “Honeybee_Set EP Air Flow” (setEPNatVent) There are discussions for both of them on the group.

Thank you!

Mostapha basically said it all. I will just add that, if you need a fine level of control over when they open and close, you can make a custom CSV schedule and input this into the components Mostapha listed.

Here’s a tutorial for making your own custom CSV schedule:…


Thank you Chris!
