F. Automated Shade Control Software:

Hyperion Solar-Adaptive Shading™ maximizes the use of available daylight to produce a comfortable and productive visual environment that reduces glare and saves energy. During the day, the Hyperion algorithm calculates the sun's position in the sky relative to the building and then creates a unique shade adjustment schedule for each facade. It adjusts the position of the shade to limit direct sunlight penetration, which can cause uncomfortable glare and heat gain. At night, all shades controlled by Hyperion can be set to a fixed position (open or closed). The shade movements are calculated based on specific building characteristics that control the solar tracking software. These characteristics are comprised of the latitude and longitude of the building's location, the directional orientation of each facade, the dimensions of the windows, the desired depth of solar penetration, and the preferred number of shade movements throughout each day. The system can also be set up to allow individual users to manually override the Hyperion system when desired, such as on a very cloudy day.
